Stumbled across this place today and decided after reading reviews to give it a go. We were the only customers on this particular Tuesday night and so seated ourselves in the cellar. The decor was understated and added to the generally calm environment. The owner and her young son, Daniel, served us extremely well. We had steak tartare, salmon tartare... More

Delicious goulash - I now know about another form of dumpling that exists in the world - delectable fried cheese (think mozzarella sticks on steroids) and Pragues's finest beer. It's all sooooo good!

The goulash soup was delicious. Ask to sit downstairs where you're basically in an old knights pub. Definitely a unique experience

This came up on several "best of" lists. I don't know how it made the cut. My beef was very dry and lacked flavor. The staff is just okay. I think there are luckier and better options in the area.

After our day visiting the Prague Castle and area we stopped into this quiet oasis for a good Czech beer and lunch. We shared a smoked duck salad with some fresh bread. It was divine. Just what we were looking for. A light lunch that was tasty and well presented. Stop in next time near Old Town Square in Prague

Czech restaurant owned by a Russian, near the Embassy of the Order of Malta. The place has a Knight-ish theme, but it's all cheesy IMHO. The food is great, though. We ordered the chicken with mushroom sauce and the grilled pork with plum sauce, both very good. It also seems to feature a lunch prix-fixe menu,for only 200 kr.

We have been waiting more than an hour for food in vain. The waitress was scattered and tactless. She forgot to bring my food and it made an unpleasant and embarrassing situation. It happens but it killed my night.

Stopped by for a quick lunch. We ordered the daily specials, duck confit. It had a strong duck smell which we didnt like. The pork knee was fantastic. Beef goulash was good too. We loved their mash potatoes and potato pancakes. Pork steak with plum was refreshing but the portion was a little small, good for ladies on a diet.

Stopped by for dinner with my husband. The food was phenomenal. I had the most delicious fish (trout) ever, and the sides (spinach and mashed potatoes) were out of this world. We left feeling full, but not heavy or sick. The ambience is pretty unique: the restaurant is located in the lower level, which is a cool cellar with minimal... More

Having stumbled on this little place about 15 years ago, I took friends on a return visit with a hint of trepidation. I needn't have worried. We had the place to ourselves, which was a real surprise as the food, service and setting lived up to our memories! We've paid much higher prices for much worse food and service, so... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
