Café De Paris
Café De Paris successfully combines the classic and the modern of French cuisine, with dishes from traditional onion soup and entrecôte with a special secret ‘sauce Café de Paris’ to an innovative variation of tuna fish with mango salad. The small but high-quality menu is not only served in the restaurant’s classically decorated interior but also its charming courtyard. With both its inventive seasonal and excellent all-year menu as well as its hand-picked wine list, Café de Paris brings a little bit of France right into the center of Prague.
Restaurant Sarah Bernhardt
Restaurant Sarah Bernhardt is the very definition of elegant, upscale French cuisine and modern Czech gastronomy. Named after the famous Parisian actress and singer, the restaurant is a true architectural gem with its interior decorated in an Art Nouveau style. Its classic culinary delicacies, such as grilled tuna fillet and beef fillet mignon, are complemented with an excellent selection of wines, directly imported from the wine cellars of Bordeaux and other French regions. The chocolate tower made from Vairhona chocolate with pistachio ice cream and candied fruit should be on everyone’s menu to guarantee an outstanding evening in an authentic atmosphere.
