Try these three Andy. Both were firm favourites of mine when I was living " v Praze."

U Staré Pošty is a little gem! Starting at the top of Wen-Sq, with the Museum and its metro stop right behind you, simply take the first right down, walk right down the end of the street and on the far left is this restaurant, which means At The Old Post Office, because guess what?!.... Here you can have traditional Czech food and a pint of beer for about £5 each, £8 for a two course meal. As this is Czech food, don't expect it to be high quality fare, but it is nevertheless a top quality little eatery. You can tell this because it is frequented by locals, not tourists. They do speak English though!

I can't remember the name, but if from U Staré Pošty you were walking back to Wen-Sq, take the first right (or first left if obviously not going to USP!) On the first right corner, there is a white bricked substantial restaurant. This is proper quality with higher prices to match. Expect to pay a huge £12 each for a two course meal. I know, watch those pennies!!!

For something completely different, go onto Line A (the green one) of the metro, go 3 stops from the Museum stop to the station Jiři z Podebrad. Get off and basically head for the massive and spectaculary ugly Prague Tower, complete with surreal babies climbing up it. Walk past this to your right, straight on and after about a minute, you will come across the Akropolis. This has a fantastic restaurant, mid-range. If you really want to experience the Žižkov Republic, which is the area you are now at, head for the nightclub below. It is, er, a bit different!!!

"na zdravi!"

Hey Andy,

You HAVE to try U Provaznice Restaurant. It's located right near Venceslas Namesti (the main boulevard in Prague), but it's not expensive at all (i'm a budget traveler, so i mean it). The food is AMAZING - you have to get the house specialty, which is a pork thigh, and the beer selection is great. The atomsphere is pretty cool, too. It's full of young locals, chilling out, drinking beers and smoking. Getting a table might be a bit tough, but I think in my 4 nights there, i ate there twice, and didn't really have to WAIT for a table.

And it's got a really cool story, but you gotta go there to find out what it is :)

Address:
Provaznicka street 3, Prague 1
Open: 11:00 - 24:00

Have fun!
