This premiere high-end dining destination goes against all the stereotypical misconceptions associated with Czech restaurants: it’s not cheap, it’s not heavy, and there’s no gruff service in sight. Instead, guests savor their way through a multi-course degustation menu from carefully selected ingredients, plated in bold, minimalist presentations. Small tastes of beer, wine, and fruit juices are conscientiously paired with each course. Chef Oldřich Sahajdák credits a 19th-century Czech cookbook for the culinary inspiration behind his creative approach to a modern gastronomical experience. After your meal, take a riverside stroll around the edges of Old Town to admire the glowing floodlights of the Prague Castle at night.
