3. V Zátiší

Google Map

Prague was introduced to fine dining at this small Bethlehem Square restaurant (see V Zátiší). The dégustation menu – a selection of tasters – brings out the kitchen’s best and pairs it with select Moravian wines. The Czech specialities and Indian dishes are enhanced by the cosy atmosphere. The seafood is so good you’ll forget you’re in a landlocked country.

5. Terasa U Zlaté studně

Google Map

Dining atop the hotel of the same name (see U Zlaté studně), guests of “At the Golden Well” can enjoy the breathtaking views from the beautiful terrace (see Terasa U Zlaté studně) or directly access the Royal Gardens of the Prague Castle during the summer months. The classic Continental cuisine matches the view – but only just. The dining room is tiny, so make sure you make your reservations well in advance.

6. Alcron

Google Map

Seafood is the speciality at this Michelin-starred restaurant (see Alcron) of the Radisson, but the talented chef Roman Paulus can creatively prepare almost any dish from the exquisite menu. Just make your request as he does the rounds of this small Art Deco lounge. If the dining room is full, try La Rotonde, which is just across the foyer. After dinner, enjoy cocktails and some great live jazz in the Be Bop bar.

Enjoy the romantic ambience of one of the most famous Baroque buildings in town. Nestled in Prague Castle’s imposing walls, this fine dining establishment (see Pálffy Palác) offers palatial surroundings and an expansive, changing menu of traditional Czech and European cuisine. A memorable dining experience with impeccable service. If you can’t get a table, choose a takeaway dish from the Pálffy Delicatessen menu.

8. Field

Google Map

Prague’s best example of farm-to-table dining, with an emphasis on free-range poultry and livestock, local ingredients and simple presentation (see Field). The main courses are built around unusual but traditional bases such as smoked beef tongue and rabbit. Reservations are a must.

9. Plzeňská restaurace Obecní dům

Google Map

It may be a bit touristy, but it’s fun nevertheless. Gorgeous tiled mosaics of bucolic Bohemians cover the walls at this restaurant (see Plzeňská restaurace Obecní dům), while an accordionist rolls out the Beer-Barrel Polka almost nonstop. The traditional food and beer are good and fairly priced.

10. Ichnusa Botega Bistro

Google Map

The owner has brought a piece of his native Sardinia to Prague, so expect big appetizer plates of thinly sliced dried ham, prosciutto and cheeses, followed by mains of fresh fish, pork and pasta at this bistro. Highlights on the menu include prawns with tomato, red pepper and garlic, and the grilled tuna is especially popular. The wines are homemade and also brought in from Sardinia. Reservations advised.
