U Modre Ruze
Although this immaculate 15th-century cellar restaurant is nominally Czech, the chef has diverted into continental territory. Soft lighting accompanies you down, down, down to an intimate space covered in stone-vaulted ceilings. The turtle soup is a local favorite as is the escargot in the starters department. Although straightforward beef, chicken and pork dishes are available, someone in your party must try an aligator or ostrich steak! The place tends to be quiet and usually has most guests speaking in hushed tones. There is an impressively wide selection of Moravian wines on offer.
There were 6 in our party and this was the worst dining experience I have ever had. Ordered one of the specials which was highly recommended. It was tough and overcooked, I sent it back. The other meals not much better.
The service was slow and lacked interest in us. The restaurant was not crowded so that's no excuse.
This is one place to avoid!
The hotel has a simple entrance but an easy to find blue colour to the canopy. There is a wonderful sculpture of a tramp sitting on a bench by the front door. Two tiny bars and a couple of lovely lounges with real fires make this brand new hotel welcoming and you cannot fault the staff who all speak a good degree of English. The hotel is right between Wenceslas Square and Old Town Square and is brilliant for location.
We had a stunning room with a huge bathroom and everything was lovely and new. The beds were wonderfully comfy and there were plenty of towels soaps etc.
We had lunch for agreeing to bunch five of us into a room as we were supposed to go to the Rokoko but the heating was broken. Because of the fact we bunched together, (they added two extra proper beds and linen etc in minutes of us booking in) and agreed to give us lunch for free. We entered the restaurant and had a splendid three course lunch of broth, fillet steak with a blue cheese sause and pots and veg followed by a dessert of forest fruits and ice cream. The food was very good and we were the only ones lunching, absolutely amazing. Mind you we didn't try out the restaurant in the cellar as the prices put us off, very expensive indeed although have crocodile and ostrich on the menu amongst others.
The breakfast (included) was a buffet of meats, cheeses, cereals, breads, croissants, hotstuff and pudding! Each morning they had a chocolate mousse type pudding, lovely. :o)
In all we had a brilliant stay in the hotel and certainly recommend it to anyone. The hotel caters very well for disabled people too.
Translates as The Blue Rose, but it's more like gas station carnations.
The decent from the inauspicious street entrance in no way prepares you for the fabulous cellar-like, medieval-dressed interior of this intimate and stylish restaurant. But that's where the treat ends.
Conceirge recommended, we were surprised it was so empty on a thursday night. We noted from the reservations book that all seven tables booked that evening were from hotels rather than individuals... a bad sign as it turns out.
The food is overcooked and basic in style but extravagant in price. The local wine we tried was musty on the palate, though we were assured by the attentive waiter, that this was the usual bouquet, but at 900CZK was 4 times the price offered by another good quality restaurant we tried.
Very disappointing and not recommended.
Newly opened spot in the downtown Lucerna complex featuring the odd but appealing combination of American style breakfast and Thai
dinners. Pancakes, eggs, omelettes and more cereal than you can shake a stick at make up the morning menu. ...

One of Prague's first pizzerias and still one of the best. The wood baked thin crusts are cheap and delicious
and the crowds that have been coming for more than seven years attest to that fact. Over a dozen ...
