Tucked inside an establishment that's literally palatial, age-old elegance and artful continental cuisine combine on the second story of a baroque palazzo just below Prague Castle. A favorite for special occasions and affairs to remember, Pálffy is one of the few ancient locations in Prague to maintain a feel for the past without seeming stuffy, kitschy, or fake. Instead, it's all high ceilings, candlelight, and haute cuisine: grilled flank steak in mushroom ragout, roast
duck, and braised shoulder of lamb. The overall effect is elegant yet lighthearted.
