Once the industrial little sister to the Czech Republic’s two bigger cities, Prague and Brno, Ostrava has in recent years been growing as a destination in its own right. If you’re visiting the area, here are the 10 best restaurants to check out.
Let’s start with the tradition. Moravska Chalupa, which translates to Moravian Cottage, is a great place to come get typical Czech food with a gourmet twist in a calm, welcoming environment. Like many places in the country, they have a daily lunch menu, which allows you to enjoy their best food on a very low budget. Come anytime to try their specialty, which is pork fillets with grilled vegetables – a dish that really shows off their presentation skills. While they do have a good vegetarian menu, Moravska Chalupa offers some truly excellent choices for the meat eaters among you.

Zamek Zabreh Hotel & Restaurant
Zamek Zabreh has one of the best restaurants in the city, but that’s not all. It’s also a luxury hotel, and they have their own microbrewery (some of the products of which also go to their on-site beer spa, but that’s another story). The setting of an old chateau could not be a more beautiful place to eat, and they even have a big dining hall decorated in a medieval style if you need a place for an event. Their menu changes seasonally, but you can generally expect to find traditional Czech food prepared with a flair for the gourmet.
