Best EATS in Prague! Join me while I share with you some of the best places to eat in Prague!
If you plan a trip to Prague in the near future, these are some of the charming places slightly off the beaten path, yet still very close to every place you want to visit in Prague.
I’ve promised a follow-up post to my Prague-Best Things, Sites and Tips To Know! post in September. I’ve finally gotten a chance to sort through my photos and share with you a taste of Prague. With so many places to choose from, these are some of our favorites places to eat.
First, there are two places we enjoy going back to again and again for their delicious breakfast, both of these restaurants also have a lunch and dinner menu as well and offering special Czech dishes.
CAFE IMPERIAL is located inside the Imperial Hotel ( Na Porici 5, Prague 1). And it’s a 10 minute walk from the Old Town Square. They offer a wide range of breakfast items to choose from. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is early 30’s art deco, elegant and historic.
Sometimes I enjoy stopping in for a quick afternoon coffee and snack. They make the best cappuccino ever!! And they serve it with a chocolate truffle and a small glass of water. Simple and elegant.
Cafe Imperial also have Czech signature dishes on their menu. If you want to try some Czech cuisine, I highly recommend Cafe Imperial.
Next on our list of favorites is LA BOTTEGA LINKA!
LA BOTTEGA LINKA is also a short walking distance from the Old Town Square. It’s an Italian Bistro with a versatile menu and specialties from the grill. Very casual atmosphere, with a lovely staff and there’s never a wait or a long line to get in. And the food is excellent!
One of their signature dishes (and it happens to be our favorite) at La Bottega Linka, is their grilled octopus over creamy mashed potatoes and charred truffles. I have to tell you, it’s outstanding!
LA BOTTEGA LINKA also has its own on premise bake shop. Here is one of their classic pastry’s filled with passion fruit cream. This dessert with their white chocolate logo on the side was amazing!!
If you want to splurge on an upscale restaurant that is popular among locals, try KOGO SLOVANSKY DUM Restaurant. It too is located in Prague 1 and offers a wide menu of meats, seafood and tapas!
However, keep in mind if you are planning to eat there on any weekend, we highly recommend you make reservations, or the wait may be very long.
Another upscale restaurant in the area is called CASA DE CARLI owned by a young chef named Matteo De Carli, who was also a chef at New York’s famous Cipriani’s on 59th Street.
CASA DE CARLI is open for lunch and dinner and everything on the menu is SUPERB!
KAMPA PARK Restaurant is one of Prague’s premiere fine dining that offers gourmet French-style dishes, with 3 summer terraces and a romantic winter garden, all on the river with spectacular views of the Charles Bridge and more! The food and service were exquisite! Ask to speak with the manager Peter, who will gladly give you a full tour of the restaurant and its different scenic views.
How about Pizza!
If your in the mood for a delicious wood burning oven pizza and one that gives you the experience of authentic food from Naples, Italy? We found one.
SAN CARLO PIZZA E CUCINA NAPOLETANA is also located in Prague 1, Mala Strana and they’re open for lunch and dinner every day. A charming little place located beside Hotel La Ballerina, but keep in mind – they have become so popular you’ll need to call and make reservations for this one too.
How about a PUB or Beer Hall!
The Czechs are known for their fine beers and ageless brewing methods. If you are looking for one of the Best Pubs or Beer Hall in Prague? We found it!
LOKAL located in Praha 1, is across the Charles Bridge in the Old City called Mala Strana. They offer a wide menu of their famous Czech beers, dishes and sausages. It’s a fun, casual place to relax and enjoy a good beer with a sausage and potatoes.
And while we were seeing the sites, we stumbled across a sandwich shop where local Czech people eat breakfast and lunch on the go! These are colorful open faced sandwiches that are very appetizing and are displayed like a work of art. With a wide variety to choose from, it was difficult to eat just one!
These sandwich shops are called LIBERSKE LAHUDKY and have 9 locations throughout Prague, making it easy for you to stumble across one! And they are very cheap. Click on the name and check out their website.
Also, the students who come here to study abroad always go to Bake Shop in Praha 1. It’s a Bistro / Bakery that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner and it will sure to leave you satisfied!
Well, there you have it! I hope you enjoyed our post on Best Eats in Prague!
