Amazing experience with breath-taking view over Prague: Restaurant Terasa U Zlaté Studně (7. October 2017)

| January 15, 2018 | 0 Comments

We were wondering around the city rather randomly having nothing planned for lunch and one of these city guides recommended the Terasa U Zlaté Studně because of its view and given nothing decent was in our immediate vicinity we undertook the short walk and ended up there. You have to get up the hill a bit (and you probably won’t find it without using a map or Google Maps) but it is worth the ‘little climb’. Just make sure to book in advance if you actually want to sit on the terrace (which is very much worth going there). We ended up on the first floor in the restaurant inside (as the terrace was already full) which is still a nice place and decided to go for the “two course lunch menu” (790 CZK).

But before you actually get your menu, a small “amuse bouche” is served – “foie gras mousse with cranberry jelly and créme fraîche”. The combination of the sweetness of a jelly with the liver taste of foie gras made it perfect to start.

I went for the “pumpkin velouté with duck croquette and crème fraiche” as a starter which was served in a lovely way …

… and didn’t look so pretty once the soup was poured in. But it tasted all the better. The soup was intense, liquid yet not too liquid (so the right consistency you would actually still feel it was freshly made from pumpkin) and the duck croquette was truly outstanding. Something I would not have expected for the relatively cheap price for the menu.

As a main course I went for the “traditional beef bourguignon with root vegetable and fine potato purée” which did not only look lovely …

… but looked even more appealing with the “red wine glaze”. And believe me, it did not only look great but it also tasted great. The degree to which the meat was cooked varied – unfortunately – a bit by piece. Some of them were rather well-done while others were perfectly medium-rare. The red wine glaze with the meat, the onions, the potato puree really made it a ‘close to perfect’ dish.

The place is nice, somewhat fancy, but you feel comfortable …

… and they take real good care of you …

… while you can enjoy the view all over the city. The waiter did an exquisite job – friendly, calm, attentive, helpful at all times. Really like you want your meal to play out.

And believe me, you should go – even if you have your lunch on the first floor – to the terrace (and try to get that table there) as it is worth to have that breath-taking view.

Did I promise too much? I knew I didn’t :-)

What I only realized once I was about to leave the place again – the chef is apparently quite up to his task as he’s been awarded with “Top 10 Grand Restaurant” for the past 7 years. Well, he deserves it!

In terms of pricing, the place is absolutely reasonable. Not only when it comes to the dishes but also when it comes to the beverages (e.g. “double espresso” for 120 CZK or “0,75l Badoit” for 150 CZK). When you are in Prague, go here – book in advance and secure a table on the terrace. Definitely a must do!
