Restaurants In Prague

Visitors to Prague (like those to Krakow) are spoilt for choice when it comes to good food at very fair prices. The city is awash with good food establishments especially in the side streets off the major roads and in the suburbs – especially Vinohrady. Nerudova, in the ‘Lesser Town’ which winds its way up from the Charles Bridge to Prague Castle has several reliable establishments. The restaurants along Na-prikope at the lower end of Wenceslas Square are over- priced and very touristy. Many bars offer also provide good meals – the bars in the alleys off Wenceslas Square on the right .  The Zombie bar especially noted.

Restaurant prices in Prague generally include VAT at 19% VAT. Service charges If added by the restaurant are around 10-12.5%. If a service charge has not been include and the service is good the customary tip is 10% of the bill. Incidentally tips over 20% are sometimes viewed as arrogance even though they are unlikely to be be refused.

Restaurant Flambée at Valdštejnská 14, Prague 1 Telephone : 2575 30522. Flambée in the Old Town by Praha standards is expensive but any restaurant in the basement of a building with over a thousand years of history is likely to have an ambiance and intrigue about it and this one is no exception. Michael Jackson and many other household names have eaten here in what must be one of Prague’s finest restaurants .

The menu seems to change fairly regularly but the the roasts are always exceptional and the stuffed lamb saddle in a delicious crusty pie is simply heaven. The unique ambiance and fine food is enhanced by a pianist at nights. Prices work out at about €40 -€50 and are worth every decimal point. website.


The Cafe Louvre (One Of Prague’s Best)

prague cafe louve

Prague’s restaurants offer a wide range of styles – and ‘The Cafe Louvre’ at 20 Narodni trida, Praha 1 Tram Routes 6, 9, 18, 21, 22 & 23. Nearest metro: line B (yellow line) Narodni Trida exudes fine Czech style, and it should be on everybody’s ‘must try’ list! – with a choice of three eating areas – there is a small posh and quiet area, opposite there is a larger and lively comfortable main room with a very pleasant ambiance. There is also a non-smoking room area and a separate Billiards room.

There is a good menu offering traditional and cosmopolitan food, offering breakfast through to dinner. The menu and prices are the same in all three eating areas. The food (especially the goulash) is simply great and the prices are surely ‘understated’ – unlike the decor! The service is excellent and ‘apres dejeuner’ downstairs in the basement there is a groovy (intimate) retro jazz club called The Reduta – which features live bands and is open late. For more info see: – a must day or night.

The Blue Duckling (U modré kachnicky) at Nebovidská 6 Mala Strana Telephone 257 320 308 is an East European restaurant with several intimate tastefully decorated dining areas. The fare is a combination of traditional Czech Cuisine and complimented with more adventurous slightly french preparation. Wild Game is the mainstay of the fare – the roast rabbit with potato dumplings and spinach being just one of several fine examples. The desserts on offer are equally imaginative with crepes laced with chocolate fruit and nuts recommended by many. The restaurant opens daily from midday to 4pm and then from 5.30pm -11pm. Prices range from about €8 -€18. website

Square Meal.CZ There are numerous guides to ‘eating out in Prague’ but the guide above is probably one of the most informative online guides available. It is very comprehensive and equally ‘visitor’ friendly. Recommended.
