Restaurants

In Prague you can find international restaurants from the finest Italian and French cuisine to Japanese, Korean, Thai, Greek, Scandinavian and Mexican. Food is still affordable, despite price increases in recent years. Original Czech food comprises roast or grilled meat and dumplings, which not all tourists necessarily find tasty, but when it’s done well, traditional Czech cuisine is worth a try.

Prague is safe concerning cleanliness and hygiene. Catering facilities are inspected by a state authority once in two years, whereas in most other EU countries the inspections are done only randomly by some professional associations.

The restaurants we list are recommended for their cuisine, ambience and popularity among travellers. If you want to eat at a particularly ‘famous’ establishment, it would be better to make a reservation, particularly at peak periods such as weekends and during the high season.

During the Covid pandemic, many restaurants were forced to close, with some just fighting to survive during lockdowns as they are only permitted to sell takeaways. Most restaurants, especially those in the tourist areas, were forced to lower prices and adjusted their menus to the locals. It is yet to be seen how large an impact it will have on the Czech restaurant scene.
