The menu of the Restaurant Honoria
To satisfy even the most avid culinary aficionados, we decided to introduce the concept of a unique and delicious tasting menu that draws upon both seasonal and local ingredients. Changing every four months, it is a unique gourmet experience for all. Do not miss this incredibly delicious experience!
Our tasting menu is served for both our hotel and guests from outside only until 19:30 every day. Of course, our complete restaurant a la carte menu where you can find excellent food inspired by Czech cuisine is available to all our guests. The recommended dress code for all our guests at the restaurant is smart casual, during evening hours.
Breakfast is served from 8:00 until 10:30 and the price of breakfast is included in the price of the room for our hotel guest. For non-hotel guests, we charge 440,- CZK for our a la carte menu selection. Guests can enjoy our snack menu from 13:00 until 16:00.

Our head chef
Michael Zapalač, Head Chef of restaurant Honoria, Chateau Herálec, Boutique Hotel & Spa by L’Occitane
What brought Michal to cooking, was curiosity! He worked at a place, where according to him they cooked to a high-class standard, so he decided to start learning. His ambition to know more brought him to university, but after five semesters he gave it up: studying and working in the kitchen full time did not come together. As he says frankly, he still enjoys it. He perceives a high gastronomy as a discovery path, often hectic, but madly inspirational.
He came to Chateau Herálec as an experienced chef, but after 2 years he left and collected further experience in Prague, Germany, and the USA. Eventually, he returned to the castle and today he and his team are cooking honest Czech cuisine. He loves French techniques, often laborious recipes. He claims, however, that honesty simply pays off in the kitchen. In our kitchen, we cook from local ingredients, and from our own vegetable and herb gardens, in the greenhouse, or in the field under the granary. We bake our own pastries, cakes, and bread, and Michal would like to give his successor once. Maybe in this beautiful family project, the quack will become a symbol of something that can last for generations.
Like any great chef, Michal is a workaholic. Asked what was the biggest reward for him after a hard day: “Definitely satisfied guests who enjoyed the food we served. Then in the evening, I go sit on my balcony with a bottle of beer and say to myself, “What a great evening!”

Restaurant Honoria Menu
Every now and then a few flakes of snow fall outside the window in our castle park, winter has prepared a magical time for us again and we will try to enchant you with our menu.
On the surrounding fields and farms, farmers have worked hard all year to produce ingredients of the highest quality.
We are proud to say that most of our dishes are made from these local products.
Potatoes which are home to the Vysočina region, we grow on our very own field next to the castle crop house.
The potato harvest was abundant this year, so we will be able to serve you delicious dishes using different variations of our potatoes.
One of our dishes is a potato ravioli stuffed with piglet and spinach, being a variation of a classic Czech dish.
Can you guess which of the classic dishes we have in mind?
Winter undoubtedly includes venison, and we have the opportunity to have the best from Mr. Šmidrkal.
This time it’s roe deer loin with lentil ragout, which will surely delight every meat lover.
Finally, I would recommend the chocolate cream with a homemade ice cream and caramel mousse – I will reveal to you that when I was inventing this dessert, I was inspired by my favorite candy bar, “Snickers”. 😊
WE WISH YOU A BEAUTIFUL WINTER!
