This grand cafe in the Municpail Building ( opera House) is very grand indeed. It sells a full range of food but we know it for it's coffee and cake in the mornings. Very traditional with waiteirs all dressed in white - one takes your drinks order while the cake trolley waiter comes along to tempt you! And you will... More

My wife went to this restaurant with her co-workers and wanted to take me there because the food was good. She was right, we had a really good meal for a decent price. Service was quick and staff was very friendly. The room is beautiful and can fit many people. They even had a guy playing an accordion there. Now... More

A fantastic art deco interior is well worth of seeing in this beerhallesque restaurant that has around 500 seats. Sadly interior design is the best part of this restaurant. Their signature dishes are huge but quality is quite average. You can get better food in much cheaper prices in various locations in historic centre - its simple, traditional food that... More

Lovely food, lovely waiters. Good value. Hidden in the basement but worth a visit, we went back again another night. My partner is coeliac and they have an allergy list in the back of the menu, very helpful.

We ate here on our first night in Prague. It's downstairs in the municipal building and the Art Nouveau surroundings are beautiful. We were drawn in by the special offers on the signs outside but beware these end at 7pm so we missed out. By UK standards the price was ok but still on the high side - approximately £3... More

Spend some time in the foyer if it's quiet. The acoustics are amazing! On to the restaurant, there's a good variety of traditional Czech and Slovak foods, decent beer (try the Kozel!) and attentive waiters. Pricey for the locals but it's worth a visit. Average dishes will set you back 280Czk

There are many reasons to enjoy a meal at Plzenska and one of the best is its glorious architecture. This 1912 jewel is a spectacular example of the tail end of Art Nouveau, just as some elements were starting to appear that we now think of as Art Deco. The basement is a church-like space and as beautifully adorned. I... More

Set in a superb, sensitively restored early Art Deco building, it is difficult to know how any food could match the surroundings. However this is good, honest Czech food served with gusto and a welcome smile. Excellent potato cakes with garlic dip were followed by a range of four of the house speciality dishes - all quite good except for... More

This is a truly beautiful Art Deco restaurant to be found down the stairs off the entrance hall at the Municipal House - the Obecni Dum. The detail on the tiling and the glass is amazing. We came for dinner. The food was reasonably priced though not exciting. We did know what to expect before our meals arrived at table... More

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.
