Slightly off the main tourist route, to one side of Malostranské Námestí, this classic Prague restaurant is situated in a palace that dates back to the Lamintger family of the 17th century.
rnTo get to the food, follow your nose and climb the large baroque staircase (bathed in candlelight at night) past the music schools and up to the top floor. The main dining room, dark and romantic, is immediately impressive. A beautiful, gilded chandelier hangs from the high ceiling, and every table is slightly different, giving the impression that a dining experience here is unique and special.
rnOn the walls are portraits and photographs of Prague in its halcyon days, and the menu boasts a similarly nostalgic range of traditional Czech food, such as wild duck carpaccio and roast quail. There’s a smaller room for diners requiring a little more intimacy, and in the summer months the large terrace is opened, affording fantastic views over the rooftops towards the Old Town.
rnWhether you’re looking for a romantic meal or simply a quiet, memorable experience, Palffy Palac will fulfil all your needs.
