Located not far from the central square, this restaurant has a few comfy rooms, a good (or should I say “very good”) selection of traditional and more modern Czech dishes at affordable prices. It it not a cheap restaurant, but it is not expensive as well. The environment is good and the food quality excellent. We were so happy that... More

If you would like to feel breath of socialism, visit U Pinkasu, staff was terrible and arogant, everything was problem. The worst experience of last years. It is definitely better visit Lokal or other Czech modern pubs.

Had a nice meal here. The atmosphere is quiet authentic. Large choice of food and beers. As expected, very little choice for vegetarians though. The trout was a good choice.

Nothing special, decent service. English was possible but don't think you can get away with anything. The food is alright for a pub but don't expect anything more than ordinary.

Classic Czech pub in the heart of Prague. You can taste all čeksá classic dishes, traditional Czech specialties and excellent Pilsner beer. To sit, you can choose a typical restaurant, cellar, bar or garden. It is necessary to take a long time to operate. There is often a lot of guests, both local and from abroad. Enjoy a touch of...

I visited restaurant during Xmas holidays. Despite of many tourists - food, waiters and atmosphere was very pleasant. I recommend baked quarter of duck with apples and marjoram, with honey spread, served with Bohemian dumplings,variety and two color cabbage.

As the River Vltava and Prague Castle are inherent parts of Prague, the genuine czech love for good beer and cozy pubs can be considered the cyech national heritage.
Just a few steps from Wenceslas Square, you can find a typical Czech restaurant called U Pinkasu, where Pilsner Urquell was the first beer being drawn in Praguee as early as in 1843. First class and traditionally draft beer is drawn on three storeys and each of these premises will captivate its guests with traditional czech cuisine as well as cosy atmosphere.
And this is the reason why people like coming here – excellent Pilsen beer drawn in a traditional manner, genuine Czech cuisine, home and unique atmosphere.

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.
