Rabbit leg dish with potato dumplings was a bit dry but otherwise everything was tasty and reasonably priced. Picturesque interior and nice service

Went here after touring the castle. The chicken and stuffing were incredible and the butter they bring for the bread was delicious. Our server was very attentive and brought us water for free which is rare in Europe. We also had the honey cake and I would never have guessed I would like honey cake. But this was the best... More

Rainer Marie Rilke is a Czech restaurant and is located just south of Prague Castle. To get there you have to work your way down the Castle hill until you get to the quieter street that this restaurant is on (it is a little ways away from the crazy tourist zone). I dined here with my wife on a Tuesday... More

I've been been a long-time TripAdvisor user, but this meal is the one that inspired me to actually leave a review. Simply put: this was a fantastic dinner. I had such a tough time deciding which dish to order as they all sounded delicious. The waiter very enthusiastically suggested the duck when I presented him with the dishes I was... More

I can't believe I missed this place. Being a regular Prague visitor, and the restaurant being in close walking distance to my usual hotel. Anyway, I found it, and happy for that! That's why I went there for dinner 3 nights in a row recently. It's situated a bit away from the tourist buzz, but nonetheless in 15 walking distance... More

Very very ordinary. Home cooking not done over well. The good reviews must be because of the large portions sizes. Good staff prices ok but not worth the walk.

Great lunch here. Portions are huge and the food good enough to make you want to finish it all! Epic garlic butter with the bread. The inside is cosy and lots to take in. We had the schnitzel (on the menu as pork loin) and the baby chicken. Both recommended.

Fenominal place! Quite intimate atmosphere, very good food - we've tried 5 dishes and loved it: great venison, duck, rabbit, beef, goulash, nice apple strudel and super honey cake. Highly recommended.

Staying in the close by Design Hotel Neruda we walked past this restaurant on our way up to the monastery. It looked a charming place and being close to the hotel was ideally located for an evening meal. At night it looked even more charming and surprisingly quiet with just one other couple dining. A very warm welcome, great service... More

We tracked down this restaurant after recommendations from friends. It has moved over the river to below the castle but their clever decor makes it seem as though it has been there for ever. Bohemian beams and candle lit tables with many words of praise written on the walls. We arrived cold from the castle for lunch and enjoyed duck... More

You will find our restaurant in the very heart of Prague, in the place which inspired the famous romantic poet R.M. Rilke. The restaurant provides a calm oasis of gastronomical experience, worth discovering, in the busy, pulsing centre of the town. We build upon the very best of Czech gastronomical tradition. Our cuisine isn't based on extravagancies, but on a straight approach to Czech meals, the freshest local ingredients and humility to the culinary profession. The best proof is the satisfaction of our customers.

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
