With a prime location in the heart of the old town district of Prague, Mlynec is a large, trendy, happening restaurant in a city which loves to marry old traditions with new techniques.
Part of the Zatisi family of fine restaurants, Mlynec takes its name from the “water mill” which once operated in front of its terrace where guests can enjoy their meal with a superb view of the famous Charles bridge over the Vltava River which runs through Prague.
What else besides the awesome view has contributed to Mlynec’s stellar reputation? Undoubtedly, it is the culinary talent of Chef Marek Sada who loves to innovate and design artistic platters as well as kick up flavor with foams and a wide assortment of fresh herbs. I loved how the foams provided the aroma, color, and flavor without the heaviness of the food in its natural state — for example, the Red Cabbage Foam which accompanied the Duck Confit, as well as the Cucumber Amuse-Bouche and the Mango Entre-Mets.
Chef Sada’s passion for great food began with his childhood love of traditional Czech cuisine, so if you are looking to enjoy traditional native Czech cuisine or Czech and International cuisine with a modern, healthy update, you can fully satisfy your palette at Mlynec. While the decor is cool and contemporary, my favorite “visual” experiences at Mlynec were the works of art presented to me and my husband by our waiter. My favorites were the Carrot Asparagus Salad which, unbelievably, tasted even better than it looked (!), and the “asparagus” for “dessert” which I thought might be a long shot until I tasted it and then enjoyed every last bite.
My husband had the same experience with his “After Eight” warm chocolate fondant … just the right amount of sweetness and a must for chocolate-lovers.
Mlynec is open daily for lunch from noon-3pm and for dinner from 5:30-11pm. Located in the Old Town district of Prague, it is as ideal for a cozy tete-a-tete or great lunch while touring as it is for a special party or event. If the weather is nice, considering reserving a table on the terrace. If not, I recommend booking a table by the window.
