We had read so many great things about this restaurant in Brno that we couldn’t wait to try it out for ourselves. We made a reservation through the website, but since we didn’t receive any confirmation (the website indicated that we wouldn’t get a confirmation, but it seems to me this isn’t a good system: if anything goes wrong, your customer doesn’t know if the reservation went through or not). Since we traveled all the way from Belgium,we asked them kindly to confirm our reservation by e-mail, which they did.
From the very moment we entered the restaurant we felt super welcome. We even got assigned a waiter who could speak Dutch (we are Dutch speaking). A big and unexpected surprise when you go for dinner in Brno. We did highly appreciate the effort our waiter put in explaining everything in Dutch.
Borgo Agnese is a truly beautiful restaurant, located at the site where the early history of Brno began. In the restaurant you can even have a look at part of the Gothic chancel of the All Saints Church, which was destroyed during the Swedish siege of Brno in 1645. Great food and history combined!
It was our first evening in Brno, we were exited to be in this new city, so we decided to go for the full option: the degustation menu SLOW FOOD. Ten courses, accompanied by wines. Total price: 2048 czk. Expensive, but well worth the money. Each course was prepared with great care, presented like a little piece of art and pared with superb wines. I do have to say that 10 courses turned out to be a bit much. Personally I found the two courses after the sorbet, although very delicious, a bit too big. But really, that’s nit picking.
We had a really unforgettable evening here!
