Our last day in Prague and a sumptuous dinner at Kotleta




 On our last stay in Prague we took a walk to the New Town as we had to look for a very modern building in Prague.  We passed by this  Matylda Boat Hotel, in fact two hotels, anchored alongside the Vltava river.  The newer  Boat Hotel is the Klotylda.





The Dancing House is one of the most interesting Prague buildings built at the end of the 20th Century. It represents a man and a woman, named 'Fred and Ginger' dancing together.  It was awarded the Design of the year 1996 award from the American Time magazine.  This extraordinary building is at the corner of Jirasek Square and Rasin Quay alongside the river Vltava.  The Celeste Restaurant and Bar, formerly La Perle de Prague, is a French restaurant housed on the top two floors of the building.



We were looking for a place to relax our weary feet and the reviews from Tripadviser convinced us to give this restaurant a try.  All of us weren't disappointed.  Good, clean ambience and very friendly service.





We ordered Staropramen Beer and some citrus drinks.


Goulash and dumplings


Chicken Schnitzel with pureed potatoes.


Spare ribs


Gee.... the best pork knuckle that we've ever eaten and we just love the presentation.


The bill came to 1201 CZK which is about Rm 195 excluding tips.


This restaurant is highly recommended should you ever decide to visit  Prague
and thanks for following me on this journey!
