Eating in Prague Delightful and Affordable

Prague sports many places where you can eat – restaurants, beer gardens, sandwich bars and cheapest of all the sausage stands along Wenceslas Square. Restaurants, restaurace in Czech, is the most upmarket place to eat. You will be served at a table and be expected to order more than just a salad or a coffee. Pivnice, hostinec and hospoda or beer gardens serve lots of beer simple meals at fixed prices for lunch and limited à la carte dinner in the evening. Seating is quite often at long wooden tables for 4 to 10 persons or more and you are expected to share.

Beer Gardens

Beer GARDEN doesn’t mean that you will have to sit outside all year. The garden is only open in summer. The hostinec and hospoda type of restaurants often in the basement of an old buildings have age-old vaulted ceilings and lots of atmosphere.

Smoke-free

All restaurants are smoke-free. No reservations are needed unless you go to very expensive restaurants. The Czechs are early risers and lunch starts at noon, sometimes earlier.

Table Sharing

Table sharing is common, simply ask if the seat is taken. No need to speak Czech because most people speak some English. As a foreigner, you will be given the menu in English and if this is not available, there is always someone around who speaks English.

Czech Cuisine

Put aside concers about expanding waistlines when you want to enjoy Czech cuisine: it is heavy fare with loaded with fat, sugar and cream. Yet, traditional Czech dishes are a treat to the taste buds. Be sure to try the all time Czech favourite: pork, dumplings and cabbage. The best desert is undoubtedly: pancakes filled with fruit, ice cream, chocolate and whipped cream.
