We like to get lost and find places the locals would visit. Sometimes you win - sometimes you lose - but it beats a tourist trap by miles.
We stumbled upon Ostrovni's by pure accident. Our feet were worn and we were hungry and we had gotten a little lost - so we were ready for a big lunch and a couple of beers.
Our waiter was not at all fluent in english but that was quite okay, we made due and he was trying very hard to understand and accomodate us.
We ordered the duck, the lamb shank and 2 beers. The beers arrived shortly after and though we had to relocate to another table (we totally missed that we sat down in the smoking area) the wait was enjoyable and our food arrived after an appropriate time had passed.
The duck is really good, the potato dumplings was delicious, even the cabbage is great in this meal. My husband had the lamb shank which was fine but the duck shone really bright - we switched meals from time to time to share the amazing food and our waiter checked in on us (replenishing our drinks when the first 2 beers were drunk) from time to time.
We ended up waddling away after our meal, but it was a satisfied waddle.
2 days later we came back for more - we ordered the roast chicken and the duck. I had a mojito and 2 x sparkling water and my husband had a beer.
The duck meal was still amazing. The chicken was a bit boring but that's okay - the duck was filling enough for two ;) The waitstaff was attentive and not trying to sell more like other places in Prague does.
We waddled away yet again - and yet again extremely satisfied.
You should try finding this place whenever you're in Prague!
