U hrabenky: lunch time U hrabenky
Our first meal this day was about lunch time - so we had a lunch instead of breakfast in a restaurant U hrabenky, which is in old 18th century (baroque) building with nice atrium - and part of that building is famous hotel here In Telc.
Favorite Dish: We came for local fish, which was nicely done yet small portion. Finely grilled and with potatos. However, my course of local dishes would always include hermelin, a soft molded cheese like camabert, pickled in oil (and vinegar) and in this case fully spiced with paprika. Had two pieces in one serving, nice, spicy (a little) and had to be eaten with a lot of bread and liquid.
Salads - they were a little too sweets, so I'd prefer if I could just get oils and vinegars on the table and do it myself. Czech salads are always a little sweet.
On the menu we read they had lemonade, which we ordered - and it was something different than excpected. That's one of those soft sparkling drinks that has all artificial color and taste, and all that too sweet. So, don't order lemonade if you think you'll get fresh squeezed fruit, haha. It won't be like that.

Švejk – Restaurant: For a beer at the main square
We wanted only to have a beer at the end of our visit of Telč and so we sat down at te terrace at the narrow end of the great square. We saw at their menu that they offer the usual traditional Czech dishes for normal prices despite of the fact that the the restaurant is named after the famous soldier Švejk which usually results in considerably higher prices - a "Švejk-tax" as Globetrott likes to call it. But I think this applies to Prague and in particular to the famous tourist trap "u Fleku".
Favorite Dish: We paid here for half a litre Pilsner Urquell 27 Kč, for 0,3 litre great dark beer Kozel tmavý 12 Kč and for giant Ďábelská topinka 40 Kč which all was a normal price.

Restaurace U Marusky.: Restaurace U Marusky.
A no frills affair with wooden tables but well kept and right on the way into the main square. Beer selection is a definite plus!
Favorite Dish: The meal of fried pork cutlet with potato salad for 82 kc ($2.25) washed down with with inexpensive drafts was nice but the real pleasure was a blueberry knodell for 20 kc (55 cents) paired with the hard to find beer, Cerveny Drak, a marvelously sourish strong brew from Starobrno.
