The Best Restaurants in Prague
Crème de la crème:
Tasting menus are based on a late-19th-century Czech cookbook at this newly anointed member of the Michelin family. Each course is accompanied by its own amuse bouche. Accord three hours for this refined and surprisingly light Bohemian extravaganza.
With a maximum capacity of 24 and hidden in the plush Art Deco folds of the Radisson Blu Alcron Hotel, chef Roman Paulus conjures up unforgettable dishes in the most intimate setting. This dedication to excellence earned the restaurant a Michelin star in 2012.
Order fresh pastries, soups and paninis from the blackboard menu and sit on the mismatched furniture amongst a stack of newspapers and temporary art exhibits. Don’t expect to find many tourists here. A great place to stop after the Jirak Farmer’s Market.
A Prague institution in the Old Town, this café house has weathered both time and multiple regimes.
Stop for a coffee, snack, lunch, or a good dose of a bygone era. An excellent place to people-watch.
The best coffee in Mala Strana, just a few minutes walk from the Mandarin Oriental.
