“Edmonton Dining Fixture Does Not Disappoint”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

If you want a central European dining experience while exploring Edmonton, Bistro Praha is the place to go.

Every bit of this place carries the feel of a true Czech restaurant as the founder was a Czech. This carries right through to our waitress who my girlfriend, in spite of her own excellent English skills, happily carried on communications with in her native Czech.

The food, service and atmosphere were all great. If there was a downside at all, it was the cost of a genuine Czech beer which was quite expensive by a Czech standard. However, it is an imported beer in Canada, so higher prices for it must be expected.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

Fresh homemade food. I had the cabbage soup and the hungarian sausage. My sister had the beef goulash (which I tasted). All were excellent. The food is simple but very good quality.

“== comfortable like a well-worn elegant coat ==”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I love this place. Good to very good Gernan-Czech food, reasonable service with the odd waiter who greets you with silence, but so comfortable and predictable. Popular with the intelligentsia, musicians and mild bohemians. I don't know where I fit in but I keep going back to this restaurant. Good value, too. Order half portions unless you're famished.

“Bistro never disappoints!”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

I love eating here - the food is authentic and delicious and the bill is always less than I expect it to be. Great atmosphere and great experience every time. I feel like I am back in Prague. The only problem is getting a table without a reservation - don't bother on a weekend. Everyone else knows about this place, too. I love the fact that they have replicated the old location exactly. Nothing has changed.

“Excellent food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

We frequent this restaurant 1-2 times a month. We always have (and I strongly recommend) the Schnitzel with tomato salad to start, potato salad with the meal and the Lorch wine. This will cost you about $80 with tip (2 people). Make a reservation if going on the weekend as seating is limited.

Check out their web site for the menu. You won't regret a visit if have an interest in this type of food.
