I have tried many of the different items from the menu and nothing has let me down. So shortly the food is very good, staff was polite and with a good sense of humor and the building was just beautiful.

We asked the consierge at our hotel to help us to book where we could enjoy Czech food and hospitality. The Plzensk fit the bill. When we arrived it was apparent that they were a bit short on staff. Although we had a reservation and the place was not full we were left standing at the door for twenty five... More

The restaurant is located in the famous Municipal House. Menu is full of Czech specialities, staff is very professional, speaking German and English as well. The food is very, very tasty and really good. Don't miss the original Czech Pilsner beer.

An Institution in Prague and a must visit. The building is stunningly beautiful. Across the street from Námestí Republiky Metro. I have been here 3 times and all excellent meals so far. It's in the basement of the Prague’s Municipal house. It's a beautiful Art Nouveau period Pilsen restaurant. If you wish to try Czech classical meals, you should not... More

Of all the restaurants you will dine in while in Prague, Plzenska will give a true Czech experience in dining. Located in the basement of The Municipal House in Namesti Republiky, the ambiance, food and traditional dress, music and service will be unique. First of all, being in the basement, resembles being in a Rathskeller. Traditional dress by the servers,... More

Rainy afternoon in Prague. A wonderful place for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea or dinner. We bought tickets for a 6pm performance of the Prague orchestra. Spent the afternoon in the restaurant for late lunch and dessert.

Take a step back in time for a romantic or special dinner in this restaurant. You can imagine Hercule Poirot coming here - the building is a real gem of Art Nouveau style. The food is good and the service attentive and friendly.

This restaurant is found downstairs in the Municipal Building. It was a great delight to walk through art deco architecture before entering the restaurant. Even if you do not want to eat you should take a walk through this area and have a cocktail at the oldest 'bar' in Prague - Americky. Such fun. The meal in the restaurant was... More

We ate at this restaurant twice while in Prague due to the quality of food for the price. The first time, was an early lunch, therefore they were not busy. The second time was an evening before the Classical Concert at Municipal Hall. It was convenient to walk up two flights of stairs to the concert. The Restaurant was 75%... More

This restaurant has high ratings in Prague's Top 10. Go for the atmosphere not the service. While we were there at 7 PM, there were four large tour groups who received the majority of the service. This is a tour destination.

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred meters long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theaters. National Theater near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
