Great service, tasty food, cold beer

James Joyce is great for a beer on the way from work or when you fancy a taste of home, their food is a cut above the usual pub grub in other tourist bars. Try the all day breakfast or the cheesy fries, lush!

Irish bar is as Irish bar does. Fantastic service and personell, nice drinks, and what you'd expect from an Irish bar on the food and drink menu.

I always enjoy time spent in James Joyce. There's really friendly and kind staff, good beer and delicious meals. It's true prices are a bit higher but what you get is worth of it.

Absolutely delicious curry dishes that tingle all the taste buds. Variety makes an all too convenient excuse to have curry every night :-)

The Sexy Curry Company is my main motivation for visiting the James Joyce, as I'm not a big fan of Irish pubs - the 5-star rating is for Sexy Curry Company alone. You simply can't get curry this good in Prague. Every dish is a winner, and the menu caters to all heat tolerance levels. Value for money is also... More

The best part of James Joyce is its consistency. Everything they do is about quality. If you want traditional Irish food, or something from the Sexy Curry Company, it will be very tasty. Here in Prague, there are contests for the best burger. There is no contest. James Joyce has the best burger in town. If you had cheese and... More

Cosy, friendly and non smoking. A fantastic place for small groups to watch sport (make sure you book a table in advance). Excellent waitress service, even in busy periods. What keeps me coming back is that it hosts the Sexy Curry Company. Amazing food with depth of flavour from a chef of Indonesian origin. This is not your typical mass... More

Typical Irish pub in the heart of Prague with great service! There is also included Indian „Sexy Curry“ with delicious food. We enjoyed vegetarian and prawn curry so much!

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

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.
