This establishment is located in the fabulous Cubist building ‘House of the Black Madonna’, designed, in 1911, by the most destinguished architect in Czech history: Josef Gočar. Cubist architecture is unique to the Czech Republic and this is one of its’ finest examples. The bright, ground floor, interior benefits from huge windows on two sides, offering views to the surrounding Baroque architecture and passers by.
There is also a, more intimate, cellar dining area adjacent to the open-walled kitchen, where guests can see the chef at work. All the fixtures and furnishings are Cubist-inspired - chandeliers, wooden panelling, floor, stairs, tables, chairs, plates and cups. The menu features excellent contemporary, Continental, fare as well as classic Czech favourites. The roasted pork cheeks and roast goose are two signiture dishes of note. After the meal visit the Museum of Czech Cubism on the second floor to round off the culinary and cultural experience.
