Bellevue is considered by many critics to be the premier Prague restaurant.
Set in a chateau-like building in the Old Town overlooking the river, Bellevue serves superb cuisine in elegant surroundings. Diners can also enjoy views over Charles Bridge and of Prague Castle across the water.
The interior of Bellevue Restaurant (beautiful sight) is a delightful mix of the modern and the traditional, offering a crisp, but warm setting with a sense of the formal - the contemporary beige and purple colours in the furnishings work well with the crystal chandeliers.
Bellevue has fixed pricing on their à la carte menu, according to how many courses you order.
The food is exquisite. The menu includes a selection of expertly prepared fresh fish, foie gras, a variety of meats including succulent lamb chops, tender steak and roasted duck leg, finishing with some sumptuous desserts.
The wine list has a selection of classic French wines and Champagnes, but don't ignore the Czech wines. Some of the finest Czech wines in Prague are on sale at Bellevue Restaurant.
In any case, the restaurant takes great pride in matching wines to food, so you may prefer to accept the 'Optional wines' offered with each course you are served.
During the summer, a terrace opens at the side of the restaurant for guests to enjoy al fresco dining near the river. Heaters provide warmth on chilly evenings.
In summary, Bellevue offers a fine dining experience, with excellent cuisine accompanied by some of the best wines in Prague.
A quiet, refined restaurant serving superb cuisine in delightful surroundings, Bellevue will suit groups of friends, families and business occasions. Advance reservations are essential.
