    Restaurace u Rotta: Restaurace u Rotta - Czech Cuisine

    by sue_stone Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    People in the know will probably cringe when they read we had dinner at U Rotta. I think it is a bit of a tourist trap…apparently there is a 'folklore show' every evening…except the evening we were there.

    We decided on U Rotta as we just wanted to eat something….in a basement….and there were dumplings.

    Located on the triangular Male Namesti, the entrance to the restaurant is strangely via a Crystal Shop. Walk through the shop and then down the stairs into the Gothic cellars below.

    Favorite Dish: Don't bother eating one of the (very stale) pretzels that are hanging on a stand on the large wooden tables. Do however, order a beer.

    The food was expensive, but at least it was tasty. I had roast chicken served with red cabbage and dumplings and washed it down with more beer.

    Cheers

    Ebel Coffee House: Ebel Coffee House

    by sue_stone Written Dec 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located in the beautiful Ungelt (aka Tyn Courtyard), just off the Old Town Square, Ebel Coffee Shop is a fabulous place for breakfast or a snack.

    We had two breakfasts here and would highly recommend it. Nothing too fancy, this small café is clean and comfortable and has service with a smile.

    Favorite Dish: They are know for their coffee, which is very drinkable, and is served in huge mugs (a little too milky for my liking…but surprisingly good anyway).

    We had their delicious bagels with cream cheese and assorted jams and coffee. They also do some breakfast specials which include coffee, bagel or croissant and juice or yogurt which are good value.

    If it is a nice day you can sit in the sunny courtyard and enjoy your coffee whilst planning your days activities.

    Restaurace U Orloje: Restaurace U Orloje - Czech Cuisine

    by sue_stone Written Dec 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We arrived in Prague late one evening and were starving…the food on the plane had been particularly bad. We dumped our bags in our apartment and took a stroll down to the Old Town Square in search of some food.

    Although it was close to midnight, the Square was packed with people enjoying the mild spring evening. We decided to brave a possibly over-priced meal, and pulled up a chair at one of the large restaurants on the square that had a free table, Restaurace U Orloje.

    We quickly ordered a couple of Pilsners….wanting to get into the swing of our Prague weekend. Yum. It was cold and tasty.

    Favorite Dish: For supper we just wanted something safe and easy, so we both had schnitzel and potato. Nothing amazing, but entirely edible and prefect with the beer.

    Although U Orloje is one of those touristy kind of places, we very much enjoyed sitting outside in the Square people watching and getting our first taste of that fabulous Old Town atmosphere.

    ArtCafé: ArtCafé

    by sue_stone Written Dec 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you find yourself near the Loreto around lunch time pop into the bright, friendly ArtCafe for a snack.

    We had eaten so much since we had been in Prague so we just needed a lightish lunch to tide us over and came across this small café.

    Favorite Dish: They sell a range of very delicious baguettes, which we had and washed them down with a beer.

    When we were leaving we noticed that they sold tasty looking ice cream…so we ordered a couple of scoops to take away and enjoyed it as we walked through the park on the way to Petrin Hill.

    Restaurace u Plebana: Restaurace u Plebana - Czech Cuisine

    by sue_stone Written Dec 30, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the night that we had been unsuccessful in getting a table at Klub Architektu we opted instead for Restaurace u Plebana, located across Betlemske Namesti.

    We were pleasantly surprised by U Plebana. It was a cosy and friendly place that serves up big plates of Czech food.

    There was a very talented piano man who really added to the atmosphere and made it a romantic meal.

    Favorite Dish: Dinner consisted of a huge serve of meat, cabbage and dumplings for Alex, and I was a little more boring with lamb and potatoes.

    We even decided to live on the edge and ordered a bottle of Czech wine. It was fine….nothing to write home about, but a good accompaniment to our meals.

    All in all an enjoyable evening.

    Literarni kavarna: Cafe/Gallery (I&V)

    There is nice cafe / gallery near Emauzy. It is good place for a coffee-break on the way down from Vysehrad, and opportunity to see an exhibition of, in the most of the cases, some of young Czech artists.

    Oucky Doucky: Cafe/Antiquariat/Internet Cafe (I&V)

    by Zvrlj Updated Apr 16, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Oucky Doucky is one of the cutest cafes we have ever visited. In fact it is cafe / antiquariat / internet cafe, and its walls are covered by bookshelves overloaded with old books.

    The good thing about Oucky Doucky is that one could taste beer "Cerny Drak" ("Black Dragon") in it.

    Restaurace u parlamentu: Czech Food & Beer in the Centre of the City (I&V)

    by Zvrlj Updated Apr 16, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurace u parlamentu is very pleasant place near Staromestske namesti. It offers good Czech food and beer for probably the lowest prices in whole area.

    Favorite Dish: Moravian roast pork with potato dumplings and spinach is very good meal, but the most unusual and also very good is marinated beef in cream sauce. For those who are not about to experiment – roast leg of chicken would be ok.

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant had 2 floors and is set in the heart of Prague. It had lots of nice tables around the restaurant and the staff were friendly too although they didnt speak much English. The restaurant was very clean and had a nice welcomming feel to it.

    THey have a fantastic menu with a variety of different steaks, salads, burgers etc to suit all tastes. Aswell as being very large portions and excellent prices too. They are open from 11am till 11pm everyday.

    We paid 833 Czech Korunas for two meals and 2 large beers... which i thought was excellent value for money.

    Favorite Dish: I had a 8oz steak with mushrooms and onions and french fries. It was delicious. Gaz had a huge burger with cheese and also french fries. It was very lrage portions and i could hardly eat it all but it was fantastic for the price we paid.

    See the crazy cow website below for a full Menu. They have lots of steaks to choose from aswell as burgers, fish, salads and side orders. They also have a wine list and beers and spirits plus soft drinks.

    Peklo: Creme Brulee...what's not to like?

    by suzannehye Written Oct 5, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I guess you can take it as a warning that a place is going to be a tourist trap if it is in your guide book, but after walking from New Town all the way to the top of the castle district, my sister and I decided to chance it. Peklo is located in 12th century beer cellars. It's pretty cool to be sitting in this brick tunnel that dates back so far...we had a bottle of Bohemian Sekt (champagne), two appetizers, two nice Czech main dishes, and greatly overtipped, and it still came to under $15 per person. I know we overtipped because when we left, the waiter chased us outside and said, "I'm so sorry! I should have paid more attention to you!" And really, the service was just fine; we had no complaint. This year, we returned to Peklo and had wine and the creme brulee we had passed up last year because of being so full. The creme brulee was worth every single calorie. It was delicious. I had Frankovka, a red Czech wine, which is a very pleasant table wine. We were served in the bar area, and had the place to ourselves. There is a cool fish pond in there, too. While Peklo may be costlier than the local places which abound, it is still a really unique place to dine, and the food was good.

    Favorite Dish: Creme brulee. It was just wonderful. A bottle of Bohemian champagne was delicious. Czech cuisine was very good.

    U Maxima: Near-luxury restaurant with great food

    by rsilva Written Jul 27, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were a group of 4 and what I remember best about this restaurant is that we all ate until we dropped, enjoyed everything and paid a very reasonable price.

    The restaurant is very nice and we even had our own "private" waiter that was always around the corner waiting for our requests. I don't know if this was due to the relatively few people that were there (I can't remember if we arrived for a late lunch or early dinner), in any case, we got the service you would only get at a luxury restaurant back home.

    The food was all great, one of us had an onion soup served in bowl made of a carved piece of bread. I had some very nice meat, but I can't remember what it was.

    At the time, they did not have English menues and the waiter was not exactly fluent in any language I could understand. This led to my girlfriend eating frog legs when he had said they were Artichokes... In any case, we had a lot of fun.

    Favorite Dish: Everything was good

    U maltézských rytířů: Great place at the end of Charles Bridge!

    by rsilva Updated Mar 8, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This nice little restaurant is located in the Malé Straně (Lesser town) quarter. It is very close to the end of Charles Bridge.
    We liked it so much we went there twice in 3 days.

    It is very small with only a few tables on the first floor and a really nice cave with some more downstairs.

    It is a bit tourist-oriented, but in a good way. We were a bit put off by a multi-language menu, but decided to give it a try and I'm happy we did.

    The service is very good, the waiters are very polite although I always got the impression they were not happy to work there... The owner, an older lady, is often there and will go around the tables making sure everything is alright (without being intrusive, however) and if you are interested, she will give you some history on the restaurant. Apparently, there was a tunnel between the restaurant and the church, located quite some way from it and it was used during the war.

    The food ranged from good to excellent and I particularly recommend the "Roast saddle of boar on briar sauce" or the "Fillet of pork with leeks and bacon baked on lard". The "Roast duck breast marinated in fresh ginger" as good but I have had better.

    Well, if you have not had enough, the "chocolate ice-cream in a blueberry cream, decorated with fresh mint" is exquisite.

    There is also a very good beer, but I cannot remember the name. If you ask for just a beer, you will get this one. It is definetly not one of the more famous ones (Budvar, Gambrinus, etc).

    It is a bit expensive for Czech standards (about 20 Eur per person), so that is probably why you will see mainly tourists.

    Favorite Dish: Roast saddle of boar and Chocolate ice-cream in a blueberry cream, decorated with fresh mint

    Tynska literarni kavarna (literary cafe): Wonderful secret place in the city centre

    by XBlanka Updated Aug 8, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is veeeery nice place in the city center whith very nice prices. It's literary cafe but you can go there for some nice cup of coffee even if you don't like reading books:)

    During the summer there is huge inner terace.

    I really recommend this place. It's very close to the Old town square and their coffee or tea is really very nice and you won't spend the fortune for one cup of tea or coffee:) You can have cappuccino for 35 CZK (approx. 1 EUR)!!!

    You can have some wine there too.

    Opening hours:
    Mon - Fri 9:00 - 23:00
    Sat - Sun 10:00 - 23:00

    Favorite Dish: They have really huge cups for tea. The coffee is nice as well but I love their tea cups. (I'll add the picture soon).

    El Gauho: Tourist trap

    by rsilva Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I know, it's my fault. Who wants to go to El Gaucho in Prague?

    Well, it was cold, it was our first day in Prague, we were hungry and the girl at the door lured us in with some pictures of really nice-looking meat.
    Since all of us were meat-lovers, we decided to give it a try.

    Why this was not a good choice:
    - It is not Czech cuisine or anything like it (we know before we went in).
    - It is a big tourist trap, everything looked fake.
    - It was about 3 times more expensive than any other restaurant we ate at.

    The steak was not bad, but not as good as any Argentinian/Uruguayan steak house you can find back in the Netherlands (or in US/Canada, for that matter).
    Service was tourist-oriented with our waiter trying to sell us everything he had on the menu.

    The first item on the bill says 1 Italy, Spain Price 0... I guess we really did get the tourist prices.

    Ovocne lahudky Svetozor (fruity delicacy): Famous ice cream bar and confectionery in Prague

    by XBlanka Written Aug 4, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is said to be the best ice cream in Prague ... go there and try it. You can choose from really wide rande of ice creams (tiramisi, dolce latte, melon,...).

    One portion costs about 10 CZK.

    If you like it you can buy the whole box (100ml - 1000 ml) of your favourite ice cream.

    There is also confectionery next to this ice cream bar. You can sit there and try some of the really delicious cakes, desserts, milk shakes or sundaes.

    Fruit cake ... yummi
