I’ll shed the pounds, but the memories I’ll savor for years and years to come, particularly those memories we made while dining at Mastal’s in Cesky Krumlov, where I'm certain all 700 years of history comes with this unique restaurant.
So, now that you’re done with the appetizer, let’s move on to today’s main course.
Our meal was courtesy of Vantage Tours and the brain child of three fantastic tour guides, Erna, Dagmar and Thea. And while that bit of information meant our dining options had been decided long before our arrival in Cesky Krumlov, that decision in no way limited our enjoyment when it came to the hearty meal and wonderful ambiance we savored.
I’m not sure it was intentional, but by the time we made it through the quaint courtyard reserved for outdoor dining to the heart of this historic restaurant, my appetite had been sufficiently whet to make the most of my midday meal.
Please forgive me for the blurry images, but with the flash the ambiance just gave way to the 21st century and ruined the mood. I chose to stick with authenticity and sacrifice a little clarity. Okay, maybe a lot of clarity! Just don't eat or drink while viewing today's post or you'll risk feeling a little nauseous. I must say though, soft lighting always makes those of us with a few years under our belts (and across our faces) much better looking. No snickering! Your turn is coming before you know it.
