Reviews of Restaurants in Prague
When we talk about Tomas Karpisek, the founder of the ubiquitous Ambiente group of restaurants, on our Prague food tours, we often describe him as the “Steve Jobs of the Prague culinary scene”. Sure, it's overstatement, but it’s not that far off. If there is anyone who sets food trends in the Czech Republic, it’s Tomas. The appearance isn’t that far off, either: we’re yet to see Tomas in something that even barely resembles a business suit. He’s more of a jeans-and-a-t-shirt guy. Also, just like the late Jobs, he’s a visionary of sorts and has a bigger plan, too. And he’s undoubtedly one of the most respected personalities on the food scene, as witnessed by our interview with Hana Michopulu, the owner of the popular Sisters bistro.
We have just had 1 week in Prague and ate here every night but for two evenings we cannot recommend Pushkin enough service excellant and also food also very relaxed and as other people commented just abit away from the hustle and bustle of the Old Town square
Ivet is a great cook! My friends and I really enjoyed our meal with her last weekend. the atmosphere was warm and friendly and while at first we thought the price might be a bit expensive, it turned out to be one of the best value meals we ever had. The parsnip soup (this was a first for all of us) was an incredible surprise, the rillettes was delicious and the rabbit was juicy and delicious. A very cool experience, which I am sure we will do again. Thanks, Ivet! :-)
This was an absolutely wonderful culinary experience! I had some friends from abroad in town and wanted to show them what real Bohemian cooking was like, and, wow, I hit the jackpot. All courses were truly delicious and the home atmosphere provided by Ivet was just superb. Highly recommended. Great value for great food!
I love the places that never change.... that keep their old-world charm.
The food was absolutely amazing.We had exlusive menu , starting with caviar with champagne Krug snd ending with delicious dezzert. The wine pairing with each course is more than touchable and incredable enjpying on ur tongue and finally the proce comparing with the prices in other restaurants with this kind of high quality food is for us more than excellent. Dinner in this restaurant offering cheaper choices too including wines from Cz republic. My wife was more than imprest and can not stop speak about our experiance in this restaurant to all our friends. High recommended!!!!
I was in Prague for two times. Puskin is my favourite place. The food is excellent (the pork knuckle, the apple strudel, the beer). THe atmosphere is very, very nice. I like to eat in the basement. It's friendly. I miss Puskin. A lot.
In my view, this is the only restaurant in Prague to have sushi. The quality is high, serving size is not skimpy like other Prague sushi places and excellent service. Reminds me of good sushi houses in LA.
the food was very good snitzel and potato croquettes very much and good taste the price is ok
Excellent restaurant with modern/minimalist/natural decor. The pasta menu is extensive, service is good. Beautiful interior both upstairs and downstairs.
Amazing. The food was fantastic and the service the same. Perhaps the best Sushirestaurant we have been to, ever. Recomended!! Thnx to Yami. S&H
Excellent place to pick up your favouruite sandwich or for the English like me, a Friday fish 'n' chips! Good value too.
Nice personal and food, non - smoking part of the restaurant
Its one of my favourite places. The food is fresh and tasty. The prices reasonable. You get to choose what kind of baguette you would like. I love their latte. Besides, they've got really good breakfast menus. Way better than McDonald and KFC. :)
Very nice place,delicious wines,great staff and most of all they won't rip you off with the bill.
My favorite place for lunch in Prague!
Great service from a nice waitress. Better go late with great atmosphere with an excellent pianist, but you will miss delicious strawberry cake. Price is affordable too.
This used to be one of the very few places in central Prague serving reasonable food in an attractive setting, at the kind of competitive prices that you find in neighbourhood restaurants. I came here several times on my first visits to Prague, and always enjoyed the food, a mixture of Czech classics and international fare. It was never gourmet food, but the portions were always generous and tasty, and the service attentive. I also enjoyed the convivial atmosphere created by the friendly staff and clientele, a mix of students, tourists and professionals. Later, when I moved to Prague, I continued frequenting Klub Architektù and discovered that many of my friends liked it for the same reasons. I also made a point of taking family and friends when they visited, and they always enjoyed it. Klub Architektù seemed to have a reputation as one of the few places left in the centre that could charge low prices yet serve good food. Unfortunately, this restaurant is now a shadow of itself. Perhaps the problems started when the prices increased and the menu changed a few years ago, to take advantage of the custom from the world ice hockey championships in Prague. Although the prices are still reasonable by 'Western' standards, they correlate far less to quality and service. On later visits the latter was slower and the staff less friendly. On one occasion the waiter was rude because I had the temerity to speak to him in Czech, and he seemed to be trying to do some business on the side with a party at another table. My last visit was the worst. I ordered garlic bread which was basically a cheese rohlík (a cigar-shaped bread roll), with a touch of garlic butter. It was half-baked and rubbery, and had obviously been in the microwave. The salmon with pasta was salty and utterly mediocre, something that anyone with even basic culinary skills could have produced. In my early days in Prague, I always had the feeling that unlike many restaurants in the vicinity, Klub Architektù prided itself in good food and good service, at prices that both locals and tourists would find attractive. Today, it couldn't seem to care less. A real shame.
We were hungry, it was around seven on the last day of July 2010 and my partner suggested we try away from the main square and the throngs of tourists to be found on any Saturday night in Prague. We arrived at the Klub Architektu, Betlemske Namesti 5a. Here we were shown quickly to a table (it was not full in the restaurant and I began to realize why at gone seven p.m. it was not full). After about five minutes, we ordered our meal and drinks. Then the beer, Slovakian, and water arrived quite quickly. Then, we waited and waited and waited. After thirty minutes, I saw one of the occasional visits by the staff into the part of the cellar where we were. I asked this attendant if she could find out when our meal would be delivered. She never re-appeared. Some five minutes later another came into the room to deliver what we thought was to be our meal but no. It was for a very patient pair of American women. I asked this second waitress (who asked if I wanted a replacement for the beer which by now I had consumed) and then came someone who apeared to be the manager. I asked when our meal would be ready, he seemed unprepared to answer and said that he was quite happy to wait for forty minutes as we had been for a meal - our meal had still not arrived nor was there any ETA (estimated time of arrival). I suggested to him that the restaurant was falling below European standards on service but all he could say was that he was prepared to wait forty minutes or more (with the inference that therefore everyone should). There was no apology for the watt we had had. He asked if we wished him to cancel the meal which seemed at that point most appropriate. We paid for the drinks and left. In my six decades I have visited most of the capital cities in Europe (and others beside) and eaten at a large selection of good restaurants as well as many average and the occasional poor restaurant. I have never waited for more than forty minutes for one course nor had inferred by a waiter/manager that I should accept his standards. I am not a tourist but a resident in Prague and like to eat out and eat well and am disappointed by the lack of customer service in a large number of restaurants. Todays experience was regrettably not completely unique in the city which is now my home and I feel that many tourists feel badly treated by the lack of customer focus as demonstrated by my experience and the potentially cynical exploitation of those visiting this beautiful city.
Great place! The sandwiches are fresh and with good ingrediants. I recommend taking on train
I can't stress how much I love this place! Great bagels and coffee, and the WiFi is just the icing on the cake.
after reserving in advance, we arrived at the restaurant and were seated in a corner where the waiters' cashier and computer are and waiters were workin hovering over us. Our table was in the dark though when we reserved we specified that we wish for a table with a lamp light. We ordered drinks and food. The wine arrived and was a smaller amount then ordered. the Metre De brought a measuring cup to show us how they measure - on the cup the 150cc was shown but the line enhanced was much lower - they are actually stealing from every wine drinking customer at least 16% of each measured glass and are probably so used to it by now that he was not worried to show it to us even though the measured amount is at least 20cc (16%) less then what it should be. When mentioning it to the metre De instead of appologizing he was very impolite and just left us in the middle of talking. We got up and left very insulted and disappointed. it isn't enough to decorate and design, if you are not hospitable clients will leave and not return.
I have been to this restaurant twice and both times it was amazing. The ambience was relaxing with dim lighting, candles, and interesting architecture. The service is always great and the food is delicious! The meals are large and the quality of the food is always fresh and tasty. I live in Prague and always recommend this restaurant to friends and visitors. It is one of my boyfriend's favorite restaurants...I am taking him here for a celebratory birthday dinner because it is consistently superb.
very good food and service. very nice place. cheap also.
We liked this delightful, cozy place with its stone walls and dim lighting. In fact, we went back a second time with our group of 6-8. Food was very good, we all thought. Mine was well-prepared, pricing was good, service was good, staff was helpful. They even went to a lot of trouble to run credit cards for each of us. Second time we went in, we all made sure to have cash to save them the effort. Cash seems the preferred payment method many places in Prague. I had an excellent caprese salad here - the summer tomatoes are hard to beat.
After reading great reviews, we went to KA only to find the food very bad. Soup and potato apetizer salty, Prague Goulash with tough pieces of meat (not beef), and the the bill had an "extra" item on it. Not to return here.
I found this restaurant one of the best I ever have been to, we were treated as kings and queens and the food and service was superb. May be a bit expensive for an ordinary salary but it will be a memory for life. Good sommelier, good waiter and very good food. Not to mention the surroundings in the old wine cellar. Thumbs up!!
great food, good atmosphere, across the street from narodni divadlo (national theatre), good service took my fiance there on her first visit to prague, will likely go again
A great place for lunch - the bagels are fresh, the selection of ingredients is great, and the overall atmosphere is perfect whether you're meeting friends or sitting alone with a book. I wish we had one of these in Poland!!
The food was good enough, but the server got our order wrong then lied about it, the music was the worst of US top 40, and there's an ATM sticking into the restaurant from the street outside making lots of noise. The place only sits about 12 and there's a lot of foot traffic in and out of the place as they sell cigarettes. Really, if it's about the food, there are plenty of other places withing walking distance that serve the same or similar fare. I still think it's a cute place, just not cute enough
Best place in Prague, very intimate and great ambiance.
First I came was a business dinner with associates from Sandvik - CZ. So, years later I got the opportunity to take my wife there for a great dinner (6 course complete taste menu). Atmosphere is great, food was excellent and personnel were also very nice. I truly recommend it. It is great!!
veramente un ristorante ottimo! suggestivo il posto, cibo e birra ottimi!
I would not recommend this place because the food is obviously overpriced and not good in terms of freshness which is a MUST for raw fish! I got the worst food poisoning of my life, and the waitors were quite rude.
Having read other reviews we were a little nervous about this restaurant but we were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent informative and polite. the food was delicious and we all enjoyed the atmosphere. we had no problems getting the a'la carte menu they were offered without asking . all in all can recommend but this is not a cheap option, but worth every penny.
cafe slavia is a unique experience in Prague, or anywhere else in teh world. Where else could you find so much history and the drinking place of so many influential writers. Just walking in here adds ten points to your IQ
Lovely restaurant- excellent food, friendly service,great value, very cosy. Cant wait to go back!
This is a little gem. A haven of peace after the hustle and bustle of the Charles Bridge. Unlike most of the neighbouring competition the Cafe Puskin has no need to employ canvassers on the street to attract custom. It trusts its reputation. For such a small establishment the menu is substantial and varied. The cooking is excellent (try the goulash with dumplings)and excellent value. Service is excellent and friendly and the whole atmosphere is relaxed. Unmissable!
Wonderful food, lovely venue. Enjoyed it very much
My wife and I stayed in Prague for five nights in July 2006. Our Hotel had no restaurant service but that was not a problem as we found the Kure V Hodinkach on Seifertova just a couple on hundred yards from our Hotel. We ate there every night and enjoyed good food, good beer and enjoyable house wine, all served by friendly staff. I would recommend it.
Right about the beers....really good to see (not to mention try) some of the lesser-known tipples. Food good but nothing special...would go back for the beers alone.
