DON'T EAT HERE!! The Prague Inn runs a Restaurant on Wenceslas Square. It's one of those outdoor places with a cover for rain and has a cute drawing of an old uniformed guy as their logo. The food is poor, they charge outrageous prices and they are unethical THIEVES, in my view.

Stay Away.

They have pretzels hanging on each table. There are 10 per table. Each pretzel, and they were the thin hard kind some bars give out for free, was $3. We asked for some bread. There were two slices each and a dollop of butter. They charged 10.29 cents for that. It is a rule, said the waiter that they charge 100czk for everyone at the table when there is a side order. He said he knew it was wrong and a rip-off, but that was their policy.

This restaurant is a pure rip off! We shared a meal, had 3 drinks and tasted 1 pretzel on the table, which by the way was horrible. When we got the bill, it was $1200 Koronas, which is about $75. When we brought this to the waiter's attention, he said we were charged for the bread basket, which we were told was part of the meal, and we were charged for 4 nasty pretzels which we did not eat. A small soda or water was 100 Koronas (~$5 usd). There are much better restaurants for much better prices. Buyer beware!

Located in a main tourist area, it has a nice patio. That was as far as it went. Very slow service and the food was absolutely terrible.

I hate to be too sensationalist but this place is criminal. The practices used to fleece tourists of money are unbelievable and would not be tolerated anywhere else. Just read the other reviews of this place you can see that im not makeing it up. 1 course for two people and a drink each for just under £50? They even had the balls to charge £7 for bread and garlic butter that we didnt even ask for! Shocking behaviour, just wish we had visited trip advisor before to see how poorly this place reviewed. The food was very average and the service aggressive. We should have walked out. AVOID! AVOID! AVOID! (Did i mention avoid?)
