Not to be missed

Not only is this extraordinary, vast restaurant (it can seat 500) in one of Prague's most elegant and historic buildings, the food and service is also well worth the visit. OK, it's typical Czech traditional fare at very slightly higher prices than some less interesting places, but if you only have... read more

This restaurant is housed in a stunning Art Deco building in the Old Town of Prague. Unfortunately neither the food nor the service were as impressive as the building. The food was fairly average and the service was slow. We had to leave the table several times, to get up and call over a waiter, as they were forever engaged... More

We needed to eat and we chose a restaurant that would be part sightseeing experience and part satisfy our hunger. The interior of this restaurant and the Municipal House that it is housed in are just gorgeous. A tour of Art Nouveau design. I'd recommend taking a tour of the Municipal House and then eating here as part of the... More

Beautiful surroundings, typical Czech food and plenty of good beer. It is a little bit more expensive than other Prague dining options, but worth of visit. Try utopenci - spicy pickled Prague sausage with onion and and roasted pork with dumplings.

We stumbled across this restaurant in the wonderful art nouveau Municipal buildings. the surroundings are stunning. The restaurant is in the basement and has the feel of a large dining hall. The restaurant filled up very quickly at lunchtime (so get there early). It seemed to cater for large parties of tourists, but with quite a few local people too.... More

The restaurant is located in a historical place. Had a traditional Czech lunch there with beer. Service was good and the servers spoke English. Food is pretty decent.

I had only a beer and a goulash soup here, but I was completely amazed by the atmosphere of this place. The soup was nice, and the menu in general looked tasty. I would recommend a visit.

This restaurant is in the basement of a very fine theatre and Art Nouveau museum. The whole building is a tribute to the early 20th century. Every part of this exquisite building is in perfect condition. Our lunch was the best we had eaten in Prague but remember their cuisine is by no means equal to the rest of Europe.... More

We stumbled on the municipal building because it started to rain so we dived for cover, and what a find it was. It is a spectacular building so we signed up for the guided tour. Whilst waiting we found this restaurant in the basement and were so awestruck we had to stop to have a drink and snack. We had... More

When entering through the central main entrance turn right at the staircase leading up into the Smetana concert hall – and go down to the beer hall. Here you... 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.
