In my quest for culinary greatness in Prague, I have been richly rewarded with some exceptional experiences. Terasa U Zlate Studne is certainly amongst the best restaurants I have visited in Europe.

Terasa U Zlate Studne is highly regarded, first and foremost, for its exquisite view, where you can bear witness to Prague in all its glory. You can see the Zizkov Television Tower to the left, Charles Bridge, the skyscrapers of Pankrac and the National Theatre in one incredible panoramic shot. But, as they’re keen to point out, it’s not just the view that makes Terasa U Zlate Studne the best location for an exceptional occasion.

The food is, in my view, Michelin class. I’ve eaten at Michelin rated restaurants before, in both Milan and London, and this place in on par with those eateries in terms of preparation, presentation, service and taste. The food was expertly prepared and professionally delivered with elegance and class in abundance.

Admittedly, whilst I’d sing its praises from the rooftops, it’s not somewhere I could ever afford to eat at on a regular basis; blogging doesn’t pay that well. But, for a special occasion, for that someone special, I would wholeheartedly recommend Terasa U Zlate Studne as the best restaurant I have visited so far in Prague.

I was presented with the degustation menu, and a perfect wine companion, which came in the following order:
