This proved to be one of the best restaurants we visited for atmosphere while in Prague. The menu offers a variety of meat dishes, beef, lamb, pork, chicken etc. along with the a choice of fish dishes, salads etc. It is a small, open-air restaurant which adds to the setting. We found the entertainment when a flambe dish was ordered very entertaining and made for a relaxed atmosphere among all the diners. The waiters will don their fireman helmets, bring out the amber flasing light and flambe in the centre of the restaurant for all to see. The staff were friendly and efficient and extremely polite. Nothing was too much trouble and they were able to laugh and joke with the diners.
Favorite Dish We were a party of four and our starters consited of a mixed salad - good combination of different salad, a meat platter - plenty of variety and shrimp cocktail with toast - plenty of shrimp. The lamb in herb butter went down a treat with fries and salad. The beefsteak in a blue cheese sauce was tendy, cooked well and very tasty - fries and steamed veg were chosen for this dish. The salmon was succulent tasty and the pork tenderloin flambed in cognac turned out to be a huge piece of pork and was flambed to perfection. There were a very varied choice of side orders - the onion rings were delicious. Chosen desserts were flambed fresh fruit - exquistic, banana split - huge with a really varied plate of fruit, almonds and chocolate sauce. The poached pear in red wine (although it was called 'pickled pear' on the menu) was served with ice cream and sorbet and by the clean plate that was left there were no complaints. We finished off the meal with coffee and each had a flambed pear brandy served in huge glasses - this was flambed at the table and when still warm was absolutely delicious.
We were fortunate to be directed by a kind local lady i stopped as she got off a bus!
she advised against any of the recommendations that our hotel antik city gave us - she said that theyd all be touristy and that wed not experience true czech cuisine
she directed us to stoletti ( i think it means one hundred years or century)
this place was really nice- candlelit tables
cosy and the food was good- service a little slow but we didnt mind
it is on street called Karlomi svetlaya - in the theatre district
i had the cabbage soup with potato
Oh had an omelette with blue cheese and spinach
then i had chicken with caramel and almonds and OH had turkey with sheep cheese
all mains were around 4euros- that was in 2006
all up it cost us 563czechkroners- very reasonable
mind you we dont drink
they called us a AAA taxi - dont go for an unregistered cab - they charge the earth
We tried this restaurant based on a glowing recommendation from the In Your Pocket guide on a Tuesday evening, it's a bit away from the tourist hordes but I thought the food was a bit dull. There was only a very small patio so we ate inside, the interior was small and cozy.
Favorite Dish I ordered chicken steak with leeks and emmenthal cheese (139kc) and a side of roesti (40kc) which was similar to what Americans call hash browns. It was OK but certainly nothing special. David had a turkey skewer with apple horseradish, once again nothing special
Overall, the service and food was above average. The workers paid attention to various stages of eating, and were prompt. The place was clean and can tell the owner took personal pride in pleasing customers.
Favorite Dish Pork steak was very nice. The presentation of the food was good, and the service was very attentive to detail and needs. The salmon that others had was also very fine.
When many restaurants in Prague lacks a decent service amongst the staff, this one really stands out. You will really get pampered here.
Siting outside in an enclosed garden (with plenty of gas heaters if needed) and getting excellent food makes this my number one choise in Prague.
This is a great restaurant serving traditional Czech food with a modern twist. Prices are still about average for Prague, so pretty low compared to Western Europe.
Above average service, English and German menu, waiter spoke excellent English. Try for a seat at the back which is where most of the Czechs were.
Don't go for the cheapest (Czech) wine though! We had the red and it was impossible to drink more than a glass of it! Well, actually we still almost managed to finish the bottle... Our own fault for picking a REALLY cheap one!!
Two main courses, each with a side dish (which you will need), 1 dessert, 2 espresso and a bottle of house red wine came to 709CK.
Favorite Dish Recommended:
Chicken with pear and salsa.
Turkey breast stuffed with Czech sour cheese.
The Grill U Seminaristy is a small courtyard restaurant just off the Charles Bridge in the Mala Strana (below the castle). Sure, it's a pretty touristy place. But the food is excellent and the service matches it. It offers a wide selection of set menus which offer excellent value - each of us had a 3 course meal, all with steaks as the main course, and a few drinks each for the grand total of £30, as well as the shot each of Becherovka they gave us for free when we sat down. If you ask for a steak flambéed in cognac, be prepared for the floor show - the waiter will come to your table complete with flame retardant gloves and fireman's helmet and flambée the steak with a generous ladel full of cognac right in front of you while his nervous-looking assistant stands nearby with a fire extinguisher. Overall, it's friendly, fun, relaxed, and terrific value.
Favorite Dish Steak. Again. I've never had so many nice steaks as I had in Prague, and this one was delicious too. See above paragraph for more details.
Original combinations of Czech and international cuisine. Nice romantic interior.
Favorite Dish Baked turkey breast filled with spinach and Hollandaise sauce,
Baked apples with prune sauce and lemon ice-cream
