Nostress Cafe aims to make eating out in Prague a totally relaxing experience. The French-Asian café-restaurant recently underwent a refurbishment that has pointed the establishment towards the higher end of Prague’s dining hierarchy. Its central location (just a short stroll from Old Town Square, over the road from Kolkovna) is still a major draw, but the elegant and sophisticated ambience and interesting, tasty menu seal the deal.
The linear and funky décor is much more avant-Asian than fusty French, with deep reds, auburns and blacks colluding lasciviously. More contemporary touches, including an abundance of foliage and red lamps that hang like giant chillies in front of pleasingly large windows, add a gentle ambience.
rnA smaller café/bar area serves sandwiches and light meals, while the main room menu – casual and lounge-esque in the daytime, sumptuous in the evening – boasts all manner of interesting and exotic East-West fusions. Furniture fans may want to slink downstairs to the basement, where they will find a warehouse full of the imported furnishings and curios that inhabit the main restaurant.
