    We found Czech food to be hearty/tasty but not terribly inspired. While amazingly tasty it offers fairly little variety. Czech restaurants reel you in with photos of smoked/roasted pork knuckle (tasty), goulash (chunks of meet in really tasty gravy/broth, often in a bread bowl), potato pancakes (awesome), assorted potato dumplings (also awesome), roast duck (awesome), with all of it featuring a side of kraut (varying degrees of sweet or sour). Beer flows freely and cheaply– the Czechs invented the pilsner and the country ranks #1 in per capita beer consumption. That said, you're in Prague, so you should experience it. I'd recommend:

    Pro tip: Be careful buying street food! Many options are (not entirely clearly) priced by per-100-gram. So you’ll see a big sign saying “$89 koruna” at the roasted meat stands with tiny text that says (per 100g). Since you’re not used to buying a plate of food by weight, you might assume that you’re getting fed for 89 koruna (about $4.50) when asked if you would like one serving. You’re not. And by the time you’re paying, it gets a bit awkward to back out of your $20+ worth of street food.

    Hi Brian,

    I recently answered a similar question. This is one of my faves; there are of course many but for really authentic food ya gotta go off the beaten path. Don't forget to try Czech "open-faced" sandwiches (chlebicek)!

    The restaurant U Čejpů (address: U Strže 1/150 Praha 4) offers the best Czech specialties, and they do them well. English wont be a problem. I always go here when I'm in Prague and craving Czech dishes like mommy used to make. It's cheap/mid-range. Most of the places in the centre aren't very good, and they charge a lot. Price is not usually an indicator of quality in Prague. In fact, for a lot of really great Czech food (and beer), visit the pubs. Those off the beaten path are the best, like Bašta - Sousedský Pivovar and U Bansethů (Taborska 389/49, Praha 4, Nusle) and Zlý časy (Čestmírova 5, Praha 4). A fun fact about Basta- they still use the old-fashioned porcelain beer-coasters. Both places are also inexpensive, with friendly staff. Hope it helps, have fun on the trams!

    I grew up in Prague, and my family's favorite restaurant to take guests to is Klub architektů It's set in a cozy, stone-walled cellar. The food is traditional and delicious. It's located in the heart of Old Town, right by the Bethlehem Chapel, which is where Jan Hus preached in the 1400s.

    As you approach the end of the st. Charles Bridge on the left there is a staircase down to a plaza where you will find a cafe that serves wonderful potato soup, pumpernickel bread and pelzner beer.
