|Bellevue is considered by many critics to be Prague's premier restaurant. |
The original restaurant building closed in 2020 for renovation (until 2022), so Bellevue has moved to newly refurbished premises 50m away, inside the Smetana Hotel.
The food, wines and service fortunately remain the same at the new address, and as Bellevue has a loyal following amongst Czechs and foreign visitors, it is still a very popular restaurant to dine in.
The menu offers meticulously prepared fresh fish and succulent meats for main courses, a sublime choice of starters, and sumptuous desserts. All dishes are beautifully presented.
The current creative chef is Nicolas Decherchi, who previously led the French restaurant Paloma to two Michelin stars.
The wine list includes classic International wines and Champagnes, but don't ignore local varieties - Bellevue stocks some of the finest Moravian wines of any establishment in Prague, superior to many speciality wine shops.
An area in which Bellevue takes particular pride is in matching wine with food: if they so wish, diners can choose the optional wine pairing with each course, or select a whole menu with wines included.
Bellevue Restaurant offers a true fine dining experience: excellent service, terrific cuisine and some of the best wines in Prague.
Two other best in class restaurants which offer a similar dining experience are: Mlynec Restaurant and V Zatisi Restaurant.
Note: The photos are from the previous address - new photos will be added shortly. The restaurant is near the river, but the view of the river and castle is restricted by trees.
