The Triton Restaurant is a unique underground dining experience located at Wenceslas Square. The restaurant is a mixture of art nouveau, symbolism and eclecticism. The restaurant has stalactites hanging from the ceiling as well as a unique designs drawn from Ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology. The design of the restaurant is over a hundred years old, and definitely a must see for anyone in Prague and in need of a good meal.
The main, and most fantastic, feature of the restaurant is the surrounding mural of the Ancient story of Orpheus and Eurydice. Orpheus’ wife Eurydice had died, Orpheus pleaded and was given the chance to save her from the underworld. The only rule was that he had to carry her out of the underworld without looking back. As they walked out, he couldn’t hear her footsteps behind him, and began doubting the gods. He turned around to double check, only to see her dragged back down to underworld. The photo above features Eurydice being taken across the river Styx by the ferryman Charon.
Besides the decor, the restaurant’s food is fantastic. I had the beef goulash, and the size was great and delicious. Afterwards I had a small platter of Chestnut and Chocolate desserts. The waiters and waitresses are incredibly friendly and are more than happy to answer any questions you have about the decor.
