Hard to get into - although there seemed to be several open tables and people walking in without reservations. Problem may be that it is attached to a hotel and the hotel operator answers the phone. So keep trying or just walk in. The wait staff is terrific and the food is first rate. The cream of mushroom soup was worth the wait by itself - to die for! Modern Czech dishes in creamy sauces were all wonderful.

Dear Neil, thank you very much for your kind words, much appreciated. Well most of the time, our restaurant is fully booked with awaited reservations done earlier, but of course it may happen the guests simply do not show, in that case we can offer the places without reservation for guests who come. That´s the reason it could seem like that. The family restaurant is a part of the hotel and we take care of all the requests coming by phone, mail or however. We are pleased that you enjoyed the food and our service. We hope to welcome you again!

Great restaurant with really lovely service. They love the food they make and present it with a lot of joy and do a lot to fill in the customers wishes. I'd really recommend taking the 7-course tasting meal along with the excellent wine tasting.

We booked this restaurant in advance of our trip after reading the reviews. Our first impressions were not great as the lady on reception is a little abrupt, once she realised we had a reservation though she cheered up a bit. We must have had a different waiter from others as ours had no wine knowledge, indeed we were told there was no wine list at all. We were given a Czech wine which turned out to be delicious but we had to ask what the price was to prevent a shock at the end! We were given an amuse-bouche together with home-made bread and herb butter - all very tasty. Our starters - mushroom soup & a gnocchi were also amazing, the soup has to be one of the best I have tasted. Our main courses were the duck and the salmon salad. The salad was very good but I found the duck a little uninspiring and dry.
The surroundings are beautiful, an intimate room, (spoiled for us a little by a table of VERY loud Americans, not the restaurant's fault).
I would certainly recommend this place and would book again if we returned to Prague.

Dear guest, thank you for your positive feedback - we hope that you can understand how busy the restaurant is and therefore we have to ask for reservations upon arrival - as many people want to eat here but we have only a limited number of seats, usually pre-booked already. The wine list is a thing itself, local production wines, presented directly by the waiters, with recommedations. We are pleased that you enjoyed your meal, of course it is a different taste of our genuine cuisine - but much appreciated though. We hope to be able to welcome you in our family restaurant again!

We had a wonderful meal for our last night in Prague. Three of us ordered the seven course tasting menu (two with wine pairings) and one ordered duck (the server asked if the patron wanted it crispy, the patron said yes, and the server lit it on fire - nice!).

The tasting menu was delicious. The first few courses were our favorites, maybe because we were so hungry at that point. For the wine, the server gave us small tastes of two wines for each course, explaining the history of each and how it would enhance the dish, then let us choose which one we wanted with the meal.

The room was simple and elegant, lit with purple lights along the edges. We were worried about not being dressed up enough, but I think we were fine - some wore button-up shirts with jeans and nicer sneakers, some wore knit dress with sandals. Others in the restaurant at the same time had on t-shirts with a hoodie, while another couple was considerably more dressy. So I don't know that I'd bother bringing dressy clothes unless you have other needs for them

We had a meal there last night 14/6/18 & straight away there was an air of sophistication about the place & even thought it was beyond me.

The staff were very attentive & you were always greeted with a smile.
Myself & my partner both enjoyed our meals which were quite large portions & very well presented.

The ambiance of the place was very romantic & despite its location was very quiet.

The price was very reasonable & for what we had I would have expected to pay almost double the price back in the UK.

No hesitation in returning on our next visit to Prague
