Everyone talks about this place, and rightly so. It's the restaurant downstairs in the basement of the Municipal House, which is a gorgeous building inside and out. It's large - so getting a table was not a problem - even on a Saturday night. The setting is traditional, with live Czech music adding to the experience and atmosphere. Friendly staff... More

Ideally located near tourist sites and palladium shopping centre. Decent food, served quickly (was quiet). Quite expensive, perhaps bit of a tourist trap?

Found this restaurant over 12 years ago, every time is visit Prague I must return. The building itself is just steeped in history always takes my breathe away. The restaurant is located down stairs do not confuse it with the restaurant and cafe located at entrance. The restaurant serves traditional Czech food . When entering the room you are just... More

Plzeňská Restaurace must be one of the most touristy restaurants in town. This is partly because it’s located in the Municipal House, an Art Nouveau masterpiece with sumptuous interiors that’s prominently featured in every single travel guide. And what better way to admire these interiors than to have a meal there? You’re almost guaranteed to not meet a single Czech... More

I typically try to avoid places like this, but a friend suggested we give it a try. Went for an early dinner around 6 pm and the place was practically empty. It is a very large hall with simple wooden seating. This place definitely caters to tour groups as compared to individuals or small families. Just as we were finishing... More

After reading the mostly good reviews and looking at the various dishes online, we were looking forward to trying this restaurant and watching and listening to the live music. Maybe we just went on a bad night but the duck dish that I ordered was rather dry and bland (definitely a case of quantity over quality!). The beef stroganoff that... More

This was an experience! Great surroundings: huge, but felt intimate as we ate. Reasonable prices, but worth going just for the event.

We were looking for authentic Czech cuisine and found the Plzenska on TripAdvisor. It was exactly what we were looking for. A lot of food for the price and very tasty. We ordered the duck (delicious) and pork in mushroom gravy. Everything was excellent. The service was attentive and not too pushy. Cold beer at happy hour prices rounded out... More

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
