Found this on google whilst searching for a restaurant with a view. The menu looked interesting and the reviews seemed positive. Having been for a traditional meal the previous night and enjoyed it, we were almost tempted to do the same but kept the booking anyway.

When we arrived there was no record although I had clear confirmation from OpenTable. I had even modified the booking earlier that day to a slightly later time. Fortunately they had a table albeit no record of my window table request and as such no availability. That said, it was pretty foggy outside so it wouldn't have been much of a view. The staff found us a nice table anyway.

The restaurant is pretty modern, the decor, the staff dress and the menu. It's found at the top of the ballroom on the 7th floor with lovely views fog aside!

Each course we sampled was excellent, we tried the beef tartare with bernaise ice cream and the ham hock for starters, they had great flavours. For mains we both went for the burger. I still feel somewhat guilty for ordering a burger in a place like this but thought, if it's only this style of menu, it has to be something special. I don't regret it, I think it was the best burger I can remember....
For dessert it was a trio of creme brulees and the brownie, both amazing.

Even the wine, a Czech wine was fabulous.

Overall lovely food, relaxed atmosphere, helpful staff and not at all pretentious.

This is a very upmarket restaurant in an unique building in Prague. Very elegantly laid out with an enterprising menu. We stuck to soup of the day which was excellent. The views from the room were very interesting.

This restaurant is situated at the top of the Dancing House, an architectural delight by Frank Gehry, and boasts with a direct view of the lit-up Prague castle, which really sets the mood. The interior is pretty hip, with some small interior design points which I wouldn't like to explain to children :) Food itself is very tasty, and also beautifully presented, especially the Gastro-Punk dessert.

Four of us went to dinner on Monday 14th November 2016. The food was just amazing and the service was just as good. The way the food was presented and especially the sweets are nothing like we have ever seen before (the best). Please go and try for yourself as you will not leave disappointed. If you want a restaurant on the cheaper side I would say this restaurant is not for you. We would definitely go back again just for the sweets alone.(Loved them) The views at night were amazing. The castle and buildings were lit up and that just added to our delightful night out with our friends. Thankyou to the staff for making our night out so special.
