Just off Kampa Park, between the John Lennon Wall and the John Lennon Pub, on Hroznova 3 lies the Velkopřevorský Mlýn Restaurant. With a birds eye view of the old canal, the old mills water wheel, and the bridge of love locks, this little restaurant has a garden terrace wich seems quite magical.

Flowers adorn a terrace of tables topped with pretzels and chairs layered with soft and fury throw overs to help swallow you like a cloud, and suck you into a world that seems quite removed from the rest of the city.

After looking at the menu I decided to order a boneless pork chop with a green peppercorn sauce, which did not disappoint. Very well done and the cold Staropramen draft was a perfect accompaniment and helped make this early spring day even more enjoyable.

I was impressed by the use of fresh-cut roses used to decorate and accentuate the planted spring flowers as well. The prices are not cheap, but you are not just paying for your order. I am sure the location pays quite high rent, and the atmosphere wich takes you somewhere else with the addition of fresh-cut roses, well….. need I really explain.

If you’re looking for a touch of detail that creates the perfect environment then this is the place. If you’re a bit more price conscience then go to McDonald’s.
