We just spent a half hour wandering the area, thinking we had the wrong place, but this is definitely now closed. We were really looking forward to trying it but ended up at El Centro just up the street instead.

Small romantic restaurant. The dishes are very tasty and unique. The prices OK. Really worth visit if you like tapas and sea food.

We went to the restaurant on April 3rd, 2016 to find it closed. One of the locals said that it has been closed for about 6 months, so it wasn't just closed for the day.

Had a very nice late Sunday lunch here. Some tapas to share first (mussels, pate and peppers) followed by chargrilled tuna with celeriac purée and a fish cake. My wife had scallops. It was all really good and a nice change from the usual Prague...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch
