Hergetova Cihelna has a fantastic riverside location, with views over the Vltava to Charles Bridge. We recently attended the re-opening party and decided to return for dinner less than a week later.
31st July 2020 update: European tourists have returned to Prague and prices are rising again as a result. We dined at Cihelna yesterday evening; the price for Fish and Chips has risen from 265 Kč to 325 Kč, a glass of Primitivo from 105 Kč to 125 Kč. The Cihelna website still shows the old prices. It’s still god value for the location, but not the amazing value we enjoyed over the last few weeks. I was also bothered by at least one wasp – sadly it’s not the place where I could bring my Executioner racket.
The view from our table was fabulous as always.
Our server was professional and friendly – I have a feeling that she was a manager helping out. We ordered two 0.15l glasses of Primitivo (excellent at 105 Kč) and a 0.75l bottle of water (65 Kč). Regular readers will know that I always ask for tap water and the bottle was my mistake – still at 65 Kč it’s cheaper than many places charge for tap water. I managed to successfully order a carafe of tap water afterwards and no charge appeared on the bill.
Our table was nicely set – nice clean linens are reassuring in these germaphobic times.
We both chose the Crispy Duck Wontons, prune sauce, red onion and cabbage salsa | 245 Kč
It’s not often you can say “wow!” when eating a dish – this was one of those times.
We both chose Cihelna Fish and Chips, warm sauce Tartare, green pea, tomatoes, French fries | 265 Kč
Another great dish and a nice take on traditional fish and chips.
Our total without tip 1400 Kč (I had another glass of wine). I consider that good value for the location and quality of food. And it’s great to be able to take a stroll across Charles Bridge afterwards on a warm evening – I took some pictures of Cihelna from the bridge.
