Not sure where to eat in Prague? The Czech capital does not disappoint with its wide array of restaurants, from traditional Czech cuisine to world-class fine dining options.
Located just outside of the entrance to Prague Castle, Kuchyň offers visitors a truly unique dining experience. With no menu, visitors select the dishes by lifting the lids of pots on the stove and letting their stomach guide them. While the selection is limited, it will be difficult to go wrong when letting the senses lead the way. Not only will the food entice your senses, but so will the view from this spectacular location.
The menu at Bistro à Table includes traditional French favourites like filet mignon and frog legs. There is even the option to have escargot served with or without shells. The chef is also the owner of the restaurant and takes great pride in creating colourful, tasty dishes. With a relaxed atmosphere and excellent French wine selection, you may never want to leave.
Asian fusion restaurant Sansho effortlessly combines fine dining with family-style service. There is an a la carte menu available for lunch, but the six-course dinner menu is served family-style at communal tables with visitors being able to select a meat, fish or vegetarian option. The seating arrangement creates a sense of community among diners. The high-quality ingredients are sourced from Czech farms and Prague’s local Vietnamese markets, and Sansho prides itself on using every part of the animal. It was the first restaurant in Prague to do so.
If you’re in the mood for pizza, Kmotra is the place to go in Prague.
