The family restaurant of Malešický mikropivovar offers an experience full of love out of the hustle and bustle of the big city.

The restaurant will serve a marinated salmon with pomelo and pomegranate salad, Valentine’s arrow with pork tenderloin, a white chocolate panna cotta with pineapple, raspberries and chilli syrup and instead of an aperitif, you can look forward to a Belgian beer special. The menu costs 399 CZK.

Despite being located in the twisted streets of the Little Quarter and the core of Prague, the Augustine restaurant is a pleasant and peaceful place where you will receive all the privacy you can ask for. You can also enjoy lunch or dinner in the upstairs suite with a 360° view at the picturesque “Mother of Cities”. The local chef Marek Fichtner, also known as a judge in the cooking TV show MasterChef, is famous for his creative combinations and unusual culinary procedures. This year he prepared a six-course festive menu and throughout the evening, you will taste his petiolate celery cream and a smoked eel, a chicken breast with cauliflower puree with vanilla or a chocolate sphere from the 63% chocolate Michel Cluizel. Let yourself be lured by a menu for 1 580 CZK, you won’t regret it.

If you haven’t yet experienced the breath taking atmosphere of the Žižkov tower, you are missing plenty. The overwhelming view of the whole of Prague is replaced by an equally overwhelming perspective of the fantastic dishes you will be served here. And the bar will be raised even higher on Saint Valentine’s – candle lights everywhere and hot Latino rhythms of the bachata dance (that you can even learn yourself!) will take place in the observatory, whilst the chef prepares the 5-course menu which is inspired by the sunny Thai flair. You will taste cream of baby carrots with coconut milk, glazed veal cheek with ginger and coriander and raspberry - chocolate mousse as a dessert. After dinner you can join in on the dance floor and immortalise the moment in a special photo booth. The price for this experience is 1 780 CZK per person.
