7 Angels, Prague

Our first night in Prague was cold and rainy so when we stepped into the warm and welcoming 7 Angels restaurant from the narrow streets of Prague's Old Town I felt like I would never want to go outside again.
Our meal started off with 'Aperitif Slivovitz', traditional Czech shot made from plums. I was feeling a bit under the weather because of a cold so I wasn't drinking at all, but I did knock it down and instantly felt miles better. It must have killed all the bugs in me!
 The shot was followed with 'Pate of venison with cranberries' that was lovely, two big slabs of what tasted like homemade pate and a selection of homemade, freshly baked bread to go with it.
Main course 'Roast duck served with potato dumplings and red cabbage' was a heavy plate of no-nonsense food. Duck was overcooked and dry, dumplings not seasoned enough and you could not have put anymore cabbage on the plate. But we were later told that this is the way Czech would expect to have their portions put together.
For pudding it was 'Apple strudel' and there was a silence around the table when everybody was tucking into their desserts, the lady next to me said that she wanted to lick her plate! Food here was not so amazing, but the company and atmosphere made up for it, so overall it was a very enjoyable night.
