A Western retreat

Great location, Western service (a relief in Prague), serene Asian decor and very good food. Worth a visit when you're tired of pork and dumplings. The bar is sophisticated and also a great respite from the city.

Mandarin Oriental Prague; inside this beautiful hotel (a 14th century Monastery fully restored) the restaurant Essensia is modern and offers the best food (half of the menu is Asian, half European) I ever had in Prague. This place is a must for anybody loving perfect service and perfect food. In weekends the, also modern, bar offers live music; not the usual old man playing the piano but an American (or British?) guitar player. Peter.
