Restaurants offer diners both a delicious reprieve from the kitchen and a secure environment that makes it virtually impossible for the dish to run away with the spoon. Keep your eating implements obedient with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of elegant European fare and drinks at Monastery Restaurant, located on Granby Street in downtown Norfolk.

Family owned and operated for more than 25 years, Monastery Restaurant serves classic Czech, German, and French cuisine in a warm, welcoming environment. Stained glass windows refract soft chandelier light onto red brick, polished wooden furniture, and slick oil paintings, while green plants and fresh floral arrangements ensure that patrons never have to ask to borrow their neighboring tables' oxygen shakers. Owner and chefs Adolf and Anna Jerabek create everything on the menu from scratch, cooking up savory specialties like quiche au roquefort ($15.95) and Hungarian gypsy pork cutlets ($19.95), along with classic favorites like roast duckling ($24.95). For dessert, sink sweet tooths and toothettes into hot apple strudel with vanilla sauce ($6.95), or flirt with an order of fondue au chocolat for two ($12.95).

Reviews

Eighty-seven percent of Urbanspooners recommend Monastery Restaurant, and TripAdvisors give it an average of four owl eyes. Eight Yahoo! Travelers give it a 4.5-star average:

  • The atmosphere really does remind you of a monastery… Service is friendly, and occasionally the owners will be working the dining room themselves. – readem, TripAdvisor
  • The food was excellent, starting with crusty homemade bread, to the very end with the hand stretched strudel! – Ashley B., Yahoo Traveler

Monastery Restaurant

Wall sconces cast warm light across the exposed brick walls at Monastery Restaurant, where guests dine on European cuisine at small, candle-lit tables. Owners Anna and Adolf Jerabek first opened a restaurant in New York City after leaving their native Czechoslovakia in 1967, and later journeyed to Virginia to open their Old World eatery at the current downtown Norfolk locale. There, they serve breaded port cutlet with Lyonnaise potatoes and steamed broccoli, and veal-stuffed cabbage with dumplings. A painting of a portly monk with a half-finished beer hangs behind the bar, where visitors can enjoy selections from the drink list—wine, beer, champagne, and cocktails—or jump up on the wall to act like the portly monk.

The food and service are always great!

We really liked the quaint atmosphere and the service was excellent. Along with the menu being OnPoint for what you would expect an Eastern European restaurant to be, the wine selection was fantastic. There is nothing else like it in Hampton Roads. A must-try experience!
