Stumbled across the Bistro de France , tucked away near the Lenin wall in the Little Quarter'- an excellent ambience and ideal for lunch. The baguette filled with Brie and cranberry can be recommended - honest but wholesome, tasty but not too dear!

Cosy café near the John Lennon wall and Charles bridge, always friendly service, great hot chocolate and snacks, free wi-fi, cash only - but it's OK when you know in advance :-) I've been here several times and will definitely go again

Menu was a mix of a lot but not typically french. As soon as the staff noticed we were only going to drink they pretty much ignored us.

I found this place walking around the area. I had to work so I had a coffee and it was good. The environment is very cozy and friendly. I cannot comment on the food but it seems good.

This cafe is just few minutes walking from Lennon's wall. We were there initially to have a warm breakfast, but then we stayed and discussed many things until lunch time. Duck confit was our prefered choice. Tasty and recommended for anyone.

We popped in here for lunch when passing by. It was fine, but nothing special. The soup was creamy, but not very hot or particularly tasty. The Serrano ham baguette came, bizarrely and without warning, covered in mustard. Inedible for me, so I ordered a brie and cranberry baguette, which was perfectly OK but very much the same as a...

Walking along looking for a breakfast place and popped in to this place. Small, full of locals, good coffee, warm service and inexpensive. A Great little find

Bistro is situated in heart of Prague close to Lennon wall and Church – Infat Jesus of Prague. It is very simple but nice. I like the left part of bistro with sofa. I had a great Créme Brulée and tea with fresh mint. Service was kind and there was also food offer.

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.
