Super prostředí i obsluha
Vzala jsem zde kamarádku na narozeniny aby si užila trochu luxusu a samozřejmě jsme nebyly zklamané. Jsem sice zvyklá na rychlejší servis, ale v takovémto podniku by to bylo asi nemístné. Pánové číšníci byli perfektní profesionálové a kamarádce zařídili i malý dortík se svíčkou. Moc děkuji. Mělo to kýžený efekt. Restaurace každopádně na rande jako stvořená.

Příjemný oběd s přáteli
Bývala to v době našich studií jedna z nejlepších restaurací v Praze, tak jsme se chtěli přesvědčit, zda tomu tak je i po mnoho letech, byli jsme velice spokojeni

Atmospheric restaurant
Promise you, your visit to Prague will be more memorable if you dine at this restaurant. It isn't cheap, but it is a very beautiful dining room which will make you feel like you are dining in a palace.

The food is very good and the staff are very kind and thoughtful.
We chose the Bohemia tasting menu, which I recommend.
We asked to swap a the roasted pork dish and they were did so readily, swapping it for quail. Also some of our party wanted the pairing wines and others didn't and they were happy to accommodate that as well.

If you want to experience what Prague probably felt like in its heyday, try U Maliru - it may end up being one of your top Prague vacation experiences.

“Excellent fine dining experience”
We visited once for lunch and chose to return for dinner a few days later. This is a fine-dining establishment, with white tablecloths and "correct" but friendly service, but the pricing is an exceptionally good value for the experience. (Both meals included amuse-bouche, sorbet, and house-made chocolates served with the coffee.)

I was pleasantly surprised to find two good vegetarian main dishes, and the portions were all properly sized for a good appetite.

One of the best experience for fine dining not only in Praha but in Europe. One of the oldest restaurants in Prague, unique interior design with historical wall paintings, excellent waitresses and delicous menu accompanied by wonderful wine of select. Nothing more could be expected for a fine dining.

Refined food in nice setting
Elegant restaurant. Food is sophisticated and very tasty. We have tried both the fish and the meat and everything was excellent. Price is not cheap, but it’s worth it

Little Bohemia
We had a lovely evening at U Maliru last week. We were welcomed into the restaurant by friendly waiting staff and the whole experience was very relaxed. They let us take our time to settle into the atmosphere and order an aperitif before even looking at the menu. The waiter introduced the menu with a short but informative history of the restaurant which was truly interesting. We ordered the foie gras and lobster bisque for starters which were both really tasty and then we shared the chateaubriand for main. The chateaubriand was flambéed at the table by the waiter and was done excellently. The amuse bouche and chocolates were a really nice touch. Amazing experience, amazing food and amazing service. Highly recommend.

Lovely
We ended up in this restaurant by chance the day of our arrival in Prague. We had no idea this was such a classy restaurant ! Despite us clearly looking like students, we were received extremely politely (they did our coat, accompanied us to our table, etc.)

The prices are very reasonable for such a good restaurant, especially if you take the lunch menu formula like we did. We were offered amuse-bouches, and traditional Czech bread that was constantly renewed. The personnel was absolutely lovely. They tended to us very politely and without any pressure, regularly checking on our glasses while remaining very discrete.

The food, of course, was amazing, and we were also graciously offered chocolates at the end of our meal. We wanted to try traditional Czech cuisine and we got it at its best.

I absolutely recommend this restaurant. Will go again for sure!

Fabulous dinner experience!
So happy that we found this restaurant while in Prague. My husband and I wanted to have one really nice dinner to celebrate our trip and we could not have been happier. The restaurant itself is lovely, with some fun history but the staff was also great -very friendly and attentive, top notch service. And of course the food was also very impressive. It was all delicious and also presented beautifully. We both ordered a set menu and the whole thing was put together perfectly. We were offered an aperitif on arrival as well as an amuse bouche between courses and a lovely tray of chocolates arrived with the bill. These extra touches really impressed us and took a great experience to an excellent one. This is a more expensive restaurant by area standards but so worth it and real value for money! On all counts this was our favourite dinner while in Prague and we highly recommend it for a special evening out!

Perfection
We are in Prague and wanted a great dinner to celebrate a birthday. We relied on the concierge at our hotel to recommend somewhere special. U Maliru exceeded our expectations. The old world ambience, top-flight service and truly spectacular food made the evening memorable: We all (3 persons) had the Exclusive Degustation Menu with wine pairings, which many might consider expensive and worth it!!! I encourage you to look at their menu for the specifics but will give an idea: 1: Beluga caviar, 2: grilled foie gras, 3: grilled pike perch (outstanding); 4: grilled veal loin (a bit over -cooked, and our only negative comment); 5: asst. cheeses, 5: strawberries flambeed tableside w/ butter, grande mariner and chantilly cream. The wines were perfect for each course and we never would have known to select them.
I want to thank Chef Dolezal for preparing such a remarkable meal, and to all of the gentlemen who so expertly served us one of the finest dining experiences we have ever had. I HIGHLY recommend U Maliru.

Excellent Dinner away from the crowds
Had a wonderful relaxed dinner with impeccable service. Food was inventive, beautifully presented. Portions were adequate given the number of courses and extra " goodies" such as the unexpected amuse bouche. But most of all the restaurant was a great respite from the crowds and repetitive menus found in so many Prague restaurants. A true oasis on the Castle side of the Charles bridge.

Excellent Upscale Restaurant
We ate there last night. The ambience is great. The restaurant itself, the oldest in Prague, is beautiful. The service is unrushed. The food was excellent. Our entrees were the trout fillet and the steak Entrecôte. The price for two people, including three glasses of French red wine and a bottle of Icelandic spring water, was approximately $53, including tip. We didn't order appetizers or dessert because we weren't that hungry. With those, I imagine the price would have doubled, but that still would be reasonable for the quality and ambience.

“Everything excellent!”
This restaurant is located in an historic, beautiful building. Candles and white tablecloths. Wonderful, friendly, professional service. Food is Czech with a French twist. Wonderful. Foie grass as an appetizer; two kinds of duck (confit and breast) with delicious red cabbage. We could not have had a more wonderful evening! Highly recommended!

Extraordinary European Adventure
The oldest restaurant in Prague, as the name say, established in 1543. Prices are a bit on the high side but still much lower than you would find in Manhattan. We had the "Bohemian," a five course delight, and the Duck Breast and a Strawberry Flambé for desert, prepared at out table of course. The service was Old World Europe at it's best; unbelievable! And the food to die for, especially the Flambé. The sauce was so good you wanted to lick the plate! This place should not be missed if you visit this beautiful city. For a special hidden treat, ask if you can see the "gentleman's" smoking room and bar in the lower level.

Le top
Tout d'abord le cadre absolument magnifique avec ses voûtes couvertes de fresques vous enmene hors du temps, ensuite l' accueil chaleureux et professionnel des maîtres d' hôtel vous met à l aise. Le repas fut parfait du début à la fin dans une ambiance feutrée et éclairée aux bougies. La carte est quasi constituée de classiques de la cuisine française revisités , assez étonnant en plein cœur de Prague . La carte des vins n' est pas en reste avec un grand choix de flacons français et étrangers dans plusieurs conditionnements...un très bon moment

The end of a two week tour of Europe was spent with dinner at U Maliru 1543. Everything about the meal was top drawer. The best ambiance, the best service, the best menu, the best ingredients, the best presentation, and the the best taste. There were eight of us in a private dining room, you felt like the only diners in the restaurant. You can do no better than U Maliru 1543.

My wife and I dined at U Maliru in early May.. .. A superb scallop starter, a melt in the mouth fish dish for main combined with the finishing touches one would expect from a Michelin star establishment - oh and a fine bottle of Sancerre - all for less than £140.
I am the first to complain about poor service etc but our experience was very different from the two recent negative reviews. I find it hard to fault this restaurant on the quality of its food, the fine service we received and the very reasonable pricing versus other establishments.

Came for lunch without a booking. Situated near St Nicholas cathedral. They were not busy which worried us initially. This restaurant is situated inside a very old house. The staff are very friendly. Once you are seated they give you a brief history of the building and the restaurant. The food is amazing. Once the meal started we were wondering why this place is not packed. Prices are reasonable for the quality. They have 2 tasting menu with optional wine pairing and also an a la carte menu. Must visit when in Prague.

Conseille dans le guide vert nous avons tenté ce petit restaurant un peu caché, et nous n'avons pas été déçu. Le décor à l'intérieur est très beau, le personnel accueillant n'hésite pas à nous raconter l'histoire des lieux.
Service et repas semi gastronomique. Des amuses bouches au dessert tout était parfait.
Je vous conseille vivement le menu du midi très abordable et vraiment délicieux.

With my husband, and dear friends, we finished a trip to Prague at this very fine restaurant. We arrived around 10 PM following a chamber concert to find exceptional service, wonderful food, a very good wine list an warm, relaxing atmosphere.
Though we arrived at a late hour, we were greeted with warmth and smiles followed by wonderful canapés.
Our food was beautifully prepared and presented.
I cannot over-recommend U Maliru 1543 to those willing to experience a wonderful Prague evening.

My friend took the bohemia tasting menu (tschek specialties) and i ate a starter (beetroot goatcheese quinoa) and a main course (potato gnochhi, black truffel and spinach) which were excellent. For no additional price we got four different kind of "snacks" between meals which also were excellent. And after dessert we also got three different kind of chocolates. Service was excellent and fast. Highly recommend this place!!! And the price was not bad at all!!

You will have to search a little to find this restaurant, it is located on a quiet square, in old Prague, but only a few minutes walk from Charles Bridge, but it will be well worth it. The food is delicious and well presented and the service is exemplary. The dining room is beautifully decorated with vaulted ceilings and wood panelling. They have a bottle of rather old Armagnac, which is worth a try if you have okayed with your bank manager beforehand! I would recommend this restaurant to any discerning diner.

Pranzo del 1 gennaio:
Tutto perfetto!
eravamo in 4, i ragazzi hanno preso il menù Boemia composto da 3 portate più dolce, ed io e la mia amica abbiamo scelto à la carte.
Piatti ricercati sia nell' impiattamento che nell'accostamento dei gusti (bravo lo chef)!!!
Discreta carta dei vini, internazionale.
Ristorante situato in una location storica.
Camerieri ineccepibili.
Prezzo molto sopra la media di Praga ma ne vale la pena.

Trouvé par hasard, véritable gastronomie imaginative, bien présentée
le cadre ancien est très agréable, le personnel attentionné, la carte des vins est riche notamment en vin français mais tant qu'à être à Prague autant goûter un très bon vin tchèque
le prix est relativement élevé mais totalement justifié par la qualité des plats et de l'accueil

My boyfriend invited me to the restaurant this week. I have never seen such a beautiful place like that at all. Nice paintings, new bar as a reception and warm atmosphere. We had 2 Exclusive menus. What to say - WOW. Great food, brilliant wine pairing, educated and friendly service. The prices are higher, but the perfect cuisine and ambience will take you to the heaven.
Unforgetable!!!

This is a beautiful restaurant in a heart of the old Prague. It's suitable for romantic dinner for two or party of large groups. We came for lunch and choose the lunch menu which was fantastic. We also checked the dinner menu because we'd definitely come back in the future. Food is inspired by French influence with Czech twist and is beautifully presented. All courses are carefully matched with wine from extensive cellar and recommended by very knowledgeable sommelier. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to dine in style.

On a quiet square, just south off Charles bridge, on the left bank. Hadn't seen the listing, attracted by the interesting menu offer though ended up selecting the St Martin's special menu, based on goose. It did not disappoint, varied, and not heavy, accompanied by an excellent Czech merlot. And their crémant is super ! One of our group is a light eater, so, without saying, chose vegetarian alternatives, and, unprompted, the amuse bouche offered was too! Service unobtrusive, quite informal, and well timed. All in, more expensive than many others, yes, but well worth it for fine and memorable dining in historic surroundings.

Nous avons découvert ce merveilleux restaurant par hasard, pas loin de la maison ou logeait Chateaubriand lors de sa visite a Prague en 1833.
Ce vieux cartier concentre les richesses architecturales, en commençant par le château et sa cathédrale et se terminant par le célèbre pont Charles.
Le restaurant « U Maliru », nous l´avons appris plus tard, existait déjà dans cette vielle maison en l´an 1543.
Son intérieur marie parfaitement les temps passés, les fresques de début de 20ème siècle et l´élégance d´un restaurant gastronomique.
Le personnel nous accueillit avec sourire et nous a placé à une belle table, près de la cheminé.
Nous avons choisit le menu tchèque et étions agréablement surpris par sa composition harmonieuse et l´expression succulente de plats.
Le personnel de salle est professionnel et nous guidait judicieusement dans le choix des vins.
Nous avons passé une soirée inoubliable, nous revisiterons sûrement Prague très bientôt et, par gourmandise, retournerons au restaurant « U Maliru » !

This place is quite fancy and expensive, but they live up to the expectations! Two years ago I tried my first beef tartare here and was amazed at how tasty it was. This visit they didn't have it on the menu, but kindly offered to prepare it for us. Once again it was more than great and we even found the time to go there again during our short stay. The stuff is friendly and open, the quality of food was really good. We went both times to get lunch and there always was a table or two free, but I can't say how busy it might get at the dinner time.
The little homemade bread buns and butter that come first were already delicious, so was everything else.
It is pretty pricey, but we felt it was appropriate for what we received.
Thank you and until next time!
P.S: compliments to the Chef for his great tartare-mixing talent!
