Another restaurant away from the town centre. This one is a bit of a walk but well worth it.
The walk itself is very pleasant as you walk along the path next to the resevoir. Be warned though if it rains heavily you will have to do some puddle jumping ;)
Right at the very end of the path the restaurant appears out of the trees.
By local standards this is slightly more expensive than most but I am sure you will agree the extra cost is more than made up for by the quality of the food.
The menu is available in English and the staff do speak English, but if you are lucky enough to have a Czech speaker with you, you will notice some extra dishes only on the Czech menu.
Favorite Dish: One of the dishes which (last time I was there) only appeared on the Czech menu was Paris Steak.
A huge lump of steak which has been marinated, cooked to your liking and served in a port & cranberry sauce. Wonderful.
There are also a couple of dishes on the Czech menu which have to be ordered 3 days in advance!!! I must try one very soon.
Opposite the bus station is a multi storey car park painted blue. Beneath this is a restaurant whose name I cannot remember at the moment.
In this unlikely location a real diamond of a restaurant is hidden. Decorated like a traditional Czech restaurant you instantly feel as if you have escaped from the hustle & bustle of every day life. Here you can sit and relax while you enjoy wonderful food from the extensive menu.
The menu is available in English and the staff make you feel very welcome.
Favorite Dish: One of the items listed as a starter is the "Devils Toast"
You should definitely try this, but be warned....this is no oridnary starter!!! It is huge!
"Potrefana Husa" (The wounded goose).
Situated on the corner, across the road from TESCO. I've always found the food there to be very good. A few czech traditional dishes mixed in more international fare. It is geared up to cater for tourists (English and german menus) but is very popular with affluent locals. It is in fact quite pricey by local standards but if you are a tourist then it will seem very reasonable. Booking is essential at weekends and advisable at any other time. I've been there when every place(including the stools at the bar!) has had a reserved sign.
Favorite Dish: If you are a meat lover try the huge "Veprove Koleno" (roasted pig knee)
Tatarak - Czech version of steak Tarar - served with garlic toast(topinky)
If you have a sweet tooth they have a limited but excellent desert menu.
I spent about five delightful hours here one afternoon / evening, simply eating, sipping on "pivo" (beer), looking at the snow falling outside, and writing in my journal. A very nice atmosphere where it seemed like many locals went to cheerfully spend a few hours enjoying a peaceful respite from the winter outside. They do have menus available in English, but it would be best (and if nothing else, polite!) if you could speak enough Czech to order, ask for another pivo, and show your appreciation when leaving.
Favorite Dish: Unfortunately I don't remember the exact title on the menu, but I ordered a sausage pasta that was somewhat of a combination of Italian pasta and Czech spices. The result? Absolutely delicious! Also note, the price range shown below was for dinner and a couple of beers.
My friend Michael (globetrott) wrote such an enthusiastic review of this coffeehouse which made me going to Liberec :-)
And he is right! The architecture is historistic (Neo-Renaissance and Neo-Baroque), with high ceilings, stucco works, large mirrors on the walls etc.
The food was excellent, prices low, service quick - but the waitress a bit unfriendly.
Favorite Dish: I had Palacinky (sort of crepes) with blueberries, vanilla ice cream with pieces of chocolate plus whipped cream - delicious. Cappuccino was very good and came with a glass of water (like in Vienna).
My friends had different pieces of cakes/tarts, like Sacher e.g. - very good as well.
This is a great Restaurant in downtown Liberec. It serves International food: mostly American, but also great Italian pastas and Mexican flavours mixed.
It also has a big grill where the cook prepares your chosen meat right there on the spot, and you can see it if you're sitting close.
Plus, it offeres a special separate dining room and services for children, making for a perfect family experience. I didn't try it, though ;)
All in all, as the name states, it offeres a great "ambiente" (ambience) for a good supper. It's located in an old wine cave, offering tunnel-like rooms, long, wide and spacious. The lighting and decoration is very warm, making it cozy and welcoming.
Favorite Dish: The selection of Pasta they sirve you in a big round wooden plate was unique in my experience.
If you are feed up fried cheese and french fries, you schould visit nice restaurant for vegetarians. There's many meals to choose - hot dinners, snacks and desserts.
I had a fried potatoes with cabbage steak and I paid only 32 CZK (not even ne dollar!).
Each weekdea from 5:30 till 6:00 pm all hot meals are 50% cheaper.
Nice restaurant of Arena Hotel. They serve good beer Svijany which is real cheap - 15, 16 or 17 CZK.
You can eat ther real good traditional Czech dishes like Smazeny Syr (fried cheese), knedlyky, polevly. It's a lot of food, hard to eat...
It was quite cheap, like in most of chinese restaurants. But when I compare the amount of served food with Czech traditional food, it's not a lot. I liked the Chinese waiteress speaking Czech (but not English).
Traditional Czech cuisine, including dishes prepared in front of your eyes on open grill and offer fresh fish from the tank.
Favorite Dish: Suckling pig, goat and lamb on spit.
There are two or already three restaurants in Jested tower over Liberec. They suggest both spectacular view and good foods.
