Restaurant U Betlemske Kaple Czech Meals and very Affordable

An affordable meal in the centre of Prague is easy to find, but only if you know where to go. As in any tourist city: the closer to the centre the higher the prices, but this does not apply to Restaurant U Betlemske Kaple. Although this restaurant It is right in the middle of the tourist area, you can have here Czech meals and very affordable.

Lunch Menu

Betlemske Kaple is located near Old Town Square and therefore you would expect the prices to be rocketing high. You will be pleasantly surprised when you see the prices on the menu. There is one snag. Arrive before 2 p.m. because after this time the lunch menus are removed and you can only order a la carte.

Affordable Meals in the Centre of Prague

Affordable meals in Prague, not on Old Town Square, but close to it. Restaurant U Betlemske Kaple looks very inviting. The sun shines in through large windows and makes eating here particularly pleasant. Many other restaurants in Prague are hidden in Gothic cellars of impressive buildings and hardly see any daylight. This is no problem in the winter when it is dark but a shame in the summer when you would like to see daylight.

Sharing Tables

Traditional wood carvings depicting religious scenes – the devil, Mary and Joseph in the stable – decorate the walls of the restaurant. Robust wooden tables and benches line the walls. The place is very popular at lunchtime and you may have to share a table, this quite common in Prague. The tables in U Betlemske Kaple are big and even when sharing the table, it still feels private.

What is an Affordable Meal?

An affordable meal is always ordered from the lunch menu (poledni menu) and not a la carte. The lunch menu usually includes seven dishes. Vegetarian dishes are limited but you can order a la carte for a slightly higher price, with a larger choice of vegetarian dishes.

The editor of Prague-now can wholeheartedly recommend fried liver with tartar sauce served with fried potatoes and onions.

Malinovka and Beer

Unfortunately, Betlemske Kaple does not serve kofola, the communist imitation of Coca-Cola, but does serve tocena limonada, malinovka. This is raspberry lemonade on tap and surprisingly tasty. Of course they also serve Czech beer.

Restaurant Betlemske Kaple is an excellent choice to have a meal, always busy and has an excellent price/quality ratio and is one of the few restaurants in the centre of Prague with affordable food.
