Kampa Park Review

The zenith of riverside dining is offered at this legendary restaurant just off Charles Bridge, known almost as much for its chic decor and celebrity guests as it is for its elegant continental cuisine and great wines—it's the kind of place where European royals and heads of state mingle with their head-of-studio counterparts from Hollywood. But the real star power arrives on the plate, with dishes like butter-poached lobster with avocado puree, or venison loin served with green lentils. The only drawback: the food and views command some of the highest prices in town.

    high expectations not met

    Linda and I are gourmands of the first order and were so looking to this meal, we investigate things at length prior to travel and being retired have the time to do so.
    Without sounding petty, the bread was obviously form days prior, the cutlery was smeared and honestly the food was fussy and unintering. Bathrooms were without paper towels and the bin overflowing. On the plus side the views are wonderful and english was spoken and the wine list was good.

    Kampa Park Review

    The start of June in Prague was cold and wet and we decided to treat ourselves to a change from duckling and dumplings for dinner. We took a look at the Kampa Park's tasting menu and decided it was just the thing.

    We were given a table with a great view of the river and the Charles Bridge. The tasting menu sensibly gives you half-size portions selected from the a-la-carte menu and the dishes were inventive, attractive and tasted delicious. The halibut in truffle sauce, venison and the hot/cold raspberry pudding were particularly good. We felt contented at the end. You can pay a fortune for wine, but we drank a Moravian pinot noir which was reasonably priced and had an unusual taste which mellowed as it sat in the glass. The service was a bit slow to start with but it picked up. The manager, David, was charming and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner.

    PS: We did get a duckling at supper, but it was swimming around outside in the river looking for its mother.

    Was not a good choice for us: Too Pricey

    Granted service is good, but it had better be with the prices they charge. A slight to us for not researching Prague restaurants in detail and not realizing Kampa Park is a huge celebrity venue. Not that we saw anyone famous when we dined there, but the prices reflect this fact.

    Honestly two scallops (appetizer) costing 20 euro was highway robbery. Wine is very much marked up and cost us 60 euro for a bottle of ordinary Australian wine. And this was one of the cheapest choices on their wine list.

    Pepper steak was fine, but again the price was very pricey for what it was.

    We sat in the glassed in dining area next to the small river. It was nice but not exceptional and neither was the main dining area next to the entrance.

    All in all it was too pricey (219 euro for two of us including wine-no coffee and desserts). Also our server reminded us that there is no tip line showing on the charge slip and service is not included so if we wanted to tip please to give cash!

    Expensive and Inedible

    I didn't know how bad venison could be prepared until I ordered it at Kampa Park. I had a serviceable salad and an intersting roast pear dessert but the entree was entirely inedible--tough, gamey, and totally unappetizing. So disappointed. Views schmiews if the food is bad then you've failed in your primary job as a restaurant.
