We just spent a half hour wandering the area, thinking we had the wrong place, but this is definitely now closed. We were really looking forward to trying it but ended up at El Centro just up the street instead.

Small romantic restaurant. The dishes are very tasty and unique. The prices OK. Really worth visit if you like tapas and sea food.

We went to the restaurant on April 3rd, 2016 to find it closed. One of the locals said that it has been closed for about 6 months, so it wasn't just closed for the day.

This is a must for anyone who visits Prague and likes seafood! The Little Whale prepares all food to perfection. The atmosphere is very romantic and the food is absolutely delicious. You can tell everything is prepared fresh daily. Portions are appropriate and as I write this I wish I could eat there! Everything is gluten-free on the menu which... More

Husband and wife team, amazing service, scrumptious food (and my husband's a chef). We ate earlier than the typical lokal, but it was recommended by a resident we spoke with who lived around the corner. What a find. Parsnip soup to die for, and flourless chocolate cake was perfect ending. Also lovely little square and fountains on our walk back... More

Two minutes from Charles Bridge in Mala Strana, Little Whale just ticks all the boxes. Friendly staff and excellent food at a reasonable price. On my first visit,I came here for a pre-theatre supper. Service was speedy and efficient without feeling rushed. The smoked salmon was to die for! Home-cured by chef Jason it was divine and came served with... More

Had a very nice late Sunday lunch here. Some tapas to share first (mussels, pate and peppers) followed by chargrilled tuna with celeriac purée and a fish cake. My wife had scallops. It was all really good and a nice change from the usual Prague fare.

This is a lovely little restaurant off the main drag. Food was delicious & the cheapest wine (Czech) was excellent. Well worth seeking out.

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.
