Vinohradský Parlament is a modern version of a traditional Czech pub (Hospoda). The Czech menu and beer are excellent. The only problem for me were the acoustics.
The restaurant is huge, with a large, downstairs, open area and upstairs there are gallery boxes and rooms.
The ceiling is decorated with upside-down animal sculptures.
Our main reason for visiting was because they have a Wild Boar Wellington on their menu – Roasted wild boar loin with mushroom paste in puff pastry, served with butternut squash purée, Brussels sprouts, chestnuts and a red wine sauce. This for 335 Kč.
It was delicious – although as I hate Brussels sprouts, I can’t vouch for them. My dining companion said they were as good as Brussels can get.
A large, dark Kozel beer was 53 Kč.
Service was friendly and fast.
We enjoyed our one-course meal, but I was relieved to get away from the noise of the place. There are no sound-dampening features and so it’s very echoey. Maybe I’m just getting old, but as Huey Lewis said to Marty McFly – “I’m afraid you’re just too darn loud”.
