Mlynec Restaurant – a restaurant with a view


Mlýnec Restaurant
Novotného lávka 9
Prague 1, 11000
Manager: Pavel Stepanek
Chef: Marek Šáda

The Mlýnec Restaurant sits at the foot of the famous Charles Bridge overlooking the Vltava River in Prague. When the river overflowed its banks in June of 2013, the flood waters devastated the restaurant. The Mlýnec team lost no time in taking on the challenges of restoration and new décor, re-opening just 7 weeks later.

The interior is tastefully done in neutral shades of espresso brown, toffee and cream colors. From the ceiling a constellation of lights in blown-glass balls, tinged red and in the shape of pomegranates add a whimsical elegance to the dining rooms. But what pleases most is the up-close view of Charles Bridge and the Prague Castle in the distance as seen through their panoramic windows.

All of this before one even begins to savor the superb cuisine of Chef Marek Šáda. A la carte dining is available in addition to several tasting menus. We choose the Czech Menu with its 4 courses, each one paired with select wines of the region, the origins of each dish and wine carefully explained by Jiří Šubrt, the deputy manager.

The plates please the eye before the flavors reach our palates. The potato soup is very tasty, with underlying flavors that linger after ch spoonful. Duck Confit with red cabbage and dumplings is the stand-out dish, but if one favors dessert, the chestnut brulé with pumpkin ice-cream wins with the first bite.

Creative cuisine and caring service are hallmarks of this restaurant. The gift is the view!Mlynec Restaurant
