TRITON Restaurant in the basement of the Adria Hotel Prague on Wenceslas Square was built in 1912 as an art gastronomic club, where famous Czech artists like Voskovec, Werich and Vlasta Burian had their perfomances. The restaurant in the stalactite cave harmoniously combines the unique atmosphere given by unique interior with more than a century of history and modern high gastronomy.

History and personalities

The history of the burgher's house on Wenceslas Square in Prague, where the Triton Restaurant is currently located, dates from the late 14th century.

Karel Sadke, Josef Liška, Michal Liška

• 1911 • In 1911 the building “U modré botky“ was bought by the hotelier Emil Rocak, who refurbished the building to turn it into a hotel and restaurant. The restaurant was built in the cellars during the renovations. It included a mezzanine gallery with a stage for cabaret and other entertainment performances.  The hotel as a whole, with the stalactite cave received its occupancy permit in 1912.

• 1918 • In December 1918, the house was bought by Mestska sporitelna, who, on 24-10-1919, sold it to Frantisek Tichy, who, among other things, was a hotelier and the owner of the building no. 784, as well as a founder of Czech cinematography, and, from 1918, its chairman.

• 1920 • On 3 September 1920, in the stalactite cave basement hall, already part of Hotel Adria, the theatre/cabaret Revolucni scena started performing – Together with the theatre's operator, Emil Artur Longen (an artist from Hasek's a Gellner's anarchist circle) the theatre also held performances by Fernec Futurista, Vlasta Burian, Rudolf Jílovský, Karel Noll, Eman Fiala and others.

• 1925 • The best era of the spaces of the restaurant Triton was at the beginning of 1925, when Vlasta Burian presented his own theatre “Divadlo Vlasty Buriana“ - at the time, the most successful theatre in the inter-war period. From the very beginning, it was a meeting place for important personalities of the Czech political and cultural lives, such as Jaroslav Marvan, Jindrich Plachta, E. E. Kisch, Sasa Rasilov, Hugo Haas, and more... Burian's theatre opened every evening with a short performance by Vlasta Burian and Emil Artur Longen. Longen here worked as an actor, but he also tried to lead Burian towards a satirical comedy character. However, Burian at the time leant more towards a solo type of comedy with no regards for scripts that demolished not only literary basis but also dramatic interplay with unexpected scenes. Vlasta Burian performed in the stalactite cave of the current restaurant Triton until 1928, when the theatre moved to another location. Due to its increasing popularity, Burian's theatre moved from Wenceslas Square 26 to Svandovo divadlo in Smichov.

• 1927 • A hall called Burianovo divadlo was built during renovations in 1927. The hall, including its façade, was renovated and used like cinema Hollywood until 1930. In 1940, the National Heritage Office issued a statement declaring the house on no. 784 as heritage protected. In 1951 the building was placed under state administration and the lobby was modified to house the facilities of the Mechanika cooperative. In 1974, the cellars of the front building were renovated for the Adria College Club.

• 1929 • The famous era of the stalactite cave continued with the performances of the Osvobozene divadlo, and between 1928 and 29, the place was also used by the actors Voskovec and Werich We have found preserved invitations to the opening performance of “Kral Ubu” (14-11-1928), “Smoking Review” (8-5-1928), or the daily comedy “ poradne zaradit...”

• 2012 • TRITON restaurant celebrated its 100th anniversary and published the book “S Trojzubcem u 100lu”.

• 2022 • The current history of TRITON Restaurant is written in the sign of culinary progress. Modern Art gastronomy by chef Tomas Kohút and more than a century long tradition of the spirit of hidden treasure on Wenceslas Square brings together an incredible experience that you will never forget.


The interiors of the Restaurant TRITON are influenced by important art trends at the turn of the 19 and 20th centuries.  Symbolism, which follows romanticism, using of symbols or signs that try to uncover the secret inside things.

The interiors of the Restaurant Triton offer you sights of not only Greek, but also Roman and Egyptian mythologies.  Every detail has its hidden meaning, including the orientation of the cardinal points.  The symbols on the eastern side, the entrance to the restaurant, represent the dawn—the beginning, positive qualities and inner purity.  In contrast, on the western side you will find night symbols, negative qualities and conclusion.  

The central theme is the ancient tragedy of Orpheus and his wife, Eurydice.  The decoration of the restaurant represents the underworld, Hades's realm of the dead. You can see not only Orpheus and his lyre, Eurydice. Pythia and Charon, but also Hades, here called according to the Roman mythology, Pluto.

The restaurant is named after Triton, son Poseidon, god of the seas, and Amphitrite, goddess of the seas.  He is half man, half fish. Like his father, Poseidon, he also carries a trident.  His main symbol, however, was a shell, which he used to calm or ripple the waters.

ORPHEUS was a legendary artist, admired for his beautiful voice and the sweet tones that came from his lyre.  One day, he fell in love with the beautiful Naiad (a water nymph) Eurydice, and married her. When Eurydice died, the unhappy Orpheus went to the underworld to bring her back among the living. His music was so magic that even Hades himself, the king of the underworld, felt compassion for Orpheus.  He agreed to return his wife to him, but under one condition, that during their return from the underworld, Orpheus should not turn around or even look at her...
