My favourite restaurant in Prague. Quirky, eclectic with excellent service and superb Czech cuisine.

The restaurant interior is one-of-a-kind. The decor appears to have been thrown together, yet it makes for a stylish whole.

We ate on the first floor, where the accomplished pianist played all evening. Started with the venison broth, followed by pheasant and concluding with a plate of ice creams and sorbets. All were excellent. Enjoyed a good Ryslink as an accompaniment.

Service was kind, pleasant and friendly.

An outstanding evening. Will return, again and again.

You enter this place through tiny wooden doors - a huge labyrinth of dining rooms awaits. Serving ‘high end’ traditional Czech fare, this restaurant was just gorgeous. 3 of us ordered duck - amazing! The service was also terrific. Wine is super expensive though. If you steer clear of wine and just order food you will get excellent value for money.

I thoroughly recommend the 5 course tasting menu of which 4 were centred around duck.
For the seriously interested:-

1. Maple smoked duck breast with onion marmalade and green pepper.
(Accompanied by Cuvee Quatre Michlovsky) Sparkling wine.

2. Grilled duck foie gras, grapes and chocolate beetroot cake.
(Accompanied by Palava 2015 Gotberg) White.

3. Roast duck with walnut dumpling, white cabbage and bacon potato dumpling.
(Accompanied by Chardonnay - Pinot 2014).

4. Grilled duck breast with peas, black beans and rice lentils cholet.
(Accompanied by Frankovka 2015 Vladimir Tetur). I gave this wine a 7/10 marking.

5. Hot chocolate cake with vanilla cream and nuts.
(Accompanied by Fonseca Bin Number 27 port). I awarded 9/10 for this wine.

Prices - 1,090 Kroners for the menu only;
1,690 Kroners for the menu and matched wines.

O.K. so what have we got? Arguably one of the best gourmet restaurants in town. Previous diners of repute are listed outside. If it's good enough for the Czech prime minister then it's good enough for you. Seriously though, it's the kind of place you propose to your intended or else take her for an anniversary dinner. Better still, take the in-laws so that don't think their daughter has married a cheap skate. Very friendly staff, all speak English. Wheelchair accessible. A place which you will always remember.
