Very good meal

The food here is very good, I had veal escalope which was delicious and a large portion. The restaurant has a czech atmosphere and the seats are wooden and carved. It was a most enjoyable meal at the end of a long day of sightseeing. I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

We were drawn in by the pork knee roasted in dark beer dinner special and good prices on the chalkboard outside. The pork knees served with red and white cabbage were huge and delicious. If you don't mind the slow service and stale pretzels, you will be rewarded with a great meal.

Best meals we had in a week in Prague. Especially the salmon. And get boiled potatoes with your meal too. And a beer. Cheaper than most of the restaurants in Prague and a whole lot better too.

We went for a dinner with my girlfriend in "U Betlémské kaple" restaurant. We chose this restaurant at random. I would say that the first look was not so bad. Nicely shaped wooden chair and banks. All was designed little bit rustical and quite nice. However... We experienced the bad luck of having "the kitchen view" table. We saw there... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while aimlessly wandering the streets of Prague, just enjoying the city. The place had many locals inside - already a good sign! We had some nice red wine, garlic soup (more of a broth but delicious nonetheless), grilled chicken (it was pretty good but nothing spectacular), and pork knee, which is the Czech specialty worth...

We stopped by this restaurant by chance. Everything in this place is pretty much related to czech tradition. We tried the smoked pork knee and a couple of local beers...terrific! Also great value for money. Absolutely reccomended!

We decided to have a traditional goulash and we found this restaurant. The waiter showed us where we had to sit (very close to the door and outside they're cold) Immediately we kindly asked him if it was possible to close the door and his answer was 'NO'. So we ordered the meal (basically goulash and baked potato). After long... More

We decided to give this restaurant a try based on a recommendation. Basic Czech food at reasonable prices. Very few people in the restaurant at around 2000. Service was quick. The Kozel Amber was great. We had chicken and schnitzel and they were OK but nothing exceptional. They bring bread for tourists but not for locals (at 10 crowns each).

We decided to have dinner at Betlemske Kapel on the strength of Trip Advisor reviews. The setting looked good, and the menu attractive. My mistake came when I queried the short-pouring (an old restaurant trick) of my Kosel 500ml draught. The (sole) waiter got the mutters, and this spoiled the rest of the evening. The food was mediocre (not great,... More

Unfortunately I was left feeling a bit underwhelmed with this restaurant. It took more than five minutes for the waiter to even notice I was there and bring a menu. My first choice wasn't available so I settled for another "specialty". It actually tasted quite good but the serving size was pretty small. When I was finished I waited so... 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.
