Where to eat ?

The national Czech dish is roast pork, sauerkraut and dumplings. Another speciality is goulash, often served with dumplings. The main meal of the day is eaten around noon. It usually consists of meat and dumplings, potatoes or rice, and soup. In addition to a simple breakfast and evening meal, Czechs enjoy a snack (svacina) at about 10 am. Tea is the most common beverage.
However, Czech beer is famous worldwide. The best-known brands are Pilsner (Plzenske) and Budweiser (Budvar), but just as good are Radegast, Staropramen and Velkopopovicky Kozel. The favorite aperitif is Becherovka, a Czech-invented liqueur, potently herbal and touted as having medicinal qualities. Plum brandy (slivovice) is popular.

Because so many of the good restaurants are quite small, they tend to fill up quickly: We recommend that you reserve well ahead of time. There are usually no dress requirements (though your judgment might dictate more formal apparel for those that are very expensive). In less expensive places, it’s not considered rude for another party to join you at your table if seats are free.


CHOOSING A RESTAURANT OR CAFÉ
Dining in Prague is relatively inexpensive by west European standards. The average price listed below includes an appetizer and a main meal with accompanying side dish, but not a dessert or drinks. The average price doesn't necessarily relate to atmosphere or the quality of food.
