One of the best restaurants/bar I went in Prague. The atmosphere is really nice, the place itself is worth a visit, so different from any bar I've been. The food is very tasty, the fried cheese is the best! The beer is great. I'll definitely go back. Really worth the wait (it gets very busy), better to make a reservation.

As the name suggests, this place is clearly a local hangout. It looks like a food hall or cafeteria, with servers getting the food behind glass covered counters with women in hairnets preparing it. It's really large in size and has lots of tables. The prices are very cheap and reflect the small portions-- two or three items would fill... More

Prague is known for its beef/steak tartare or Tatarak. I ordered it on each and every restaurants we've been to and IMO, Lokal has the best among all the restaurants I've tried. Fried cheese was also good and the ham. They place is always crowded, hence the service was not that good. It's a nice place to go if you... More

Lokal is a fun beer hall that is popular with both tourists and locals. Reservations are a must! Goulash and sausages are terrific. Beer is great too. Service is a bit abrupt but efficient.

Opened 6 years ago, purposely stark, like what it may have looked during the Communist era. Food was excellent, and Pilsner Beer too. Learned that the foam is the sweet part.

This is a very popular place in the Old Town. Centrally located, its like a hostel canteen. Huge, busy and plainly furnished.The food is good and reasonably priced. The beers are worth trying. Do note they take the last order for dinner at 10 pm.After that a cold selection is available.Dinner time also sees a rush enough to involve waiting... More

Did dinner here, gets very busy and we were seated in the cellar-- 2 levels below ground level. A bit spooky but still very nice. Attentive service and the sausages and fried cheese were top notch. Loved the chilled Czech lager. A lot less expensive than most of the tourist trap restaurants in the old city.

The Tourist bureau employee recommended we try this place as all the food is sourced in the Czech republic, making it truly authentic Czech food. The authentic thing is taken to such an extreme that you can't order your teenager a Coke a Cola (as we discovered). Only Czech food and drinks at this place. We found they don't do... 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.
