One of the most beautiful experiences I had during my trip to Prague in the end of October was the lunch at the Aria hotel. Both the food and the hotel far exceeded my expectations that, even before leaving, were very high. Since you always like my blog posts about hotels and restaurants, I decided to give you a small review of my experience.
For a few months, Ste and I are vegetarians so one of the things we look at when we go out is if there are options for people who do not eat meat. Among the entrees in the menu there was no vegetarian dishes but the staff kindly offered us two vegetarian options although not on the menu but we refused because we were still half full from the breakfast we had in the morning. Of course, the fact that they are trying to meet even those who have special needs is a point in favour for the service of the hotel. The main dish I chose was an Italian Risotto with Hokkaido pumpkin, roasted chestnuts and pistachios. The dish was relly delicious and I really liked the pistachio’s flavour combined with the pumpkins. I also liked the use of seasonal products and, when possible, local products.
Ste choice was Potato Gnocchi with roasted mushrooms, white truffle butter and mushroom powder. I did not taste his dish but Ste assured me it was really delicious and the appearance definitely confirms. Dessert
The dessert was the highlight of the lunch. We chosed the Sticky Toffee Pudding under recommendation of the staff and it was really delicious and the best way to end the lunch.I also loved the dishes with which they set up the table representing famous singers or musicians, as the main theme of Aria Hotel is music. My plate was dedicated to Jim Morrison, but look at this photo I posted on Instagram to see others. Location
At the end of the lunch I took some photos in the dining room where we had lunch. The style of this hotel is really unique and different from all the other luxury hotels I’ve visited. The decor is colorful and classic with decorative elements that make the whole setting very elegant. The highlight of this hotel is definitely the terrace where you can dine during the warmer season, and the direct access to the Vrtba Gardens, a UNESCO heritage site that we visited after lunch and that I will show you in the next post. What do you think of this experience? Would you go for lunch at this magnificent hotel?
