Bellevue Restaurant - Prague, Czech Republic

One of the Best Restaurants in Prague


Restaurant Category : International

Bellevue Restaurant – Prague, Czech Republic: Hailed by many critics as the best restaurant in Prague, the Bellevue Restaurant will impress any person who is particular about fine food and sophisticated dining. In English, the word “Bellevue” translates to “beautiful view,” an appropriate name for a restaurant that offers awe-inspiring panoramic views of the Petrín Hill, Charles Bridge, and Prague Castle across the Vlatva River.

The Bellevue Restaurant is located in a chateau-like, 19th-century parlor with a crisp but warm setting. Crystal chandeliers and unassuming colors of purple and beige are used in the restaurant’s interiors. The place is not overly formal and traditional; it has a quiet elegance with a contemporary feel. One can sense that people go here for two reasons: the view and the food.

We tried the Czech Bio – Farm Degustation Tasting Menu with paired Czech wines. The tasting menu included: Terrine of Pork with Parsley, Cheese Dressing with Chives; Slowly Roasted Pikeperch with Parsley Puree, Rieslink Sauce and Baby Carrot; Roasted Veal Cheek with Potato Puree, Stewed Pearl Onion; Gently Oven-Baked Rack of Lamb in Marjoram Crust, with Granny’s Potato Dumpling and Spinach Leaves; and Homemade Apple Strudel with Caramel Mousse and Vanilla Ice Cream.

Everything was exquisitely prepared, perfect, and simply divine! The whole experience was like a symphony of taste, smell, touch, and sight: a true feast for the senses. Pavel, our waiter, did an amazing job explaining everything wonderfully. Because of his expertise and passion, not only did he provide first-class fine dining service, he also educated us about Czech cuisine as well as the many aspects of Czech wines. He introduced us to straw wine, specifically Tramín 2006 Straw Wine (slámové víno) from the Slovácko region, a sweet desert wine, which was a superb surprise.

If you plan on dining here (which is an absolute must if you’re in Prague), be sure to make your reservations weeks in advance to secure a coveted seat with a view. Some of the tables have the views blocked by trees along the river. We were fortunate to have a direct view of the castle, which was simply magnificent.

My only complaint is that the evening went too fast.

What I liked: My favorites were the Beef cheek—it was tender and the flavor was amazing

Lamb cutlets—perfect—again, super tender and almost melt-in-my-mouth good!

The Tramine 2006 straw wine, a sweet desert wine

What I didn’t like: The night went too fast

Rating: Fantastic Bombastic—a dinner like this cannot be called just a dinner; it was an experience that needs to be savored and will be remembered for a very long time to come.
