Essensia Restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental has infused fresh culinary ideas with Eastern flavors and has spiced up fine dining in Prague. Essensia is located on the ground level of the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Prague. The whole complex is a restored medieval monastery which impeccably combines its rich historical spirit with far eastern elements for an exquisite setting. The service is perfection itself; the friendly staff pays great attention to detail and client comfort to create the most pleasant dining atmosphere possible. The menu is Eurasian, all the while focusing on splendidly revived Czech cuisine from the recipes of Executive Chef Jiři Štift, and is composed to present the simplicity and purity of each individual flavor rather than fusing them together, which is why Essensia uses local organic produce. The menu changes regularly as the chefs use seasonal produce in order to show off their talents through a variety of preparation methods and design. We recommend rounding off your meal with one of the excellent desserts on the menu for a true culinary experience to remember. The wine list is as impressive as the restaurant itself, and the wine cellar is available to rent for private parties. The atmosphere is fairly casual; the Essensia is an ideal spot for a romantic date, a family celebration or simply treating yourself to a world-class meal.
