Piano Nobile Restaurant was named in 2015 the fifth-best restaurant in the Czech Republic according to Maurer’s Grand Restaurant Guide. The restaurant is open daily by reservation only for all guests and visitors with a maximum capacity of 50 (group reservations can be made for up to 100).

Breakfast is served for both hotel guests and visitors from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. in the Theatre Hall. Lunch is served from 12 noon to 3:30 p.m. From 3:30 to 6:00 p.m., the restaurant is closed to give us time to prepare for dinner service. During this time, you can stop by the garden patio for light snacks from our Piano Nobile Bar menu. Dinner is served from 6 to 10 p.m. 

Our experienced executive chef Honza Štěrba, together with his team, prepares gourmet experiences, including a seasonal à la carte menu and degustation menu. During the summer, the chateau patio with its view of the surrounding countryside is the perfect setting for lunch or dinner. Piano Nobile is suitable for business lunches as well.

Dear Guests, To avoid disappointment, we kindly request that you reserve your table in advance, as the hotel may be closed completely due to private bookings. We appreciate your understanding.

Executive chef Honza Štěrba

Executive chef Honza Štěrba grew up in nearby Nymburk. Not only is he close to Mcely geographically, but his cooking philosophy also aligns perfectly with the vision of Chateau Mcely.  

Honza has been a member of the chateau’s culinary team practically since its opening, and has gradually worked his way up to the executive chef position. Honza and his team were recognized by Maurer’s Grand Restaurant Guide, receiving the award for “Best Restaurant in the Czech Republic” for 2014.

He delights in coming up with new dishes using only the highest quality ingredients, primarily from local sources.

Our kitchen is pleased to offer you homegrown herbs, homemade marmalades, fish and meat smoked in the chateau smokehouse, and other homemade specialties.
