Hi guys,

We'll be visiting Prague in a few days and would like to know if anyone can recommend good, cheap bars for drinks. Also, I've heard food is quite expensive there so any good restaurants would be great, any sort of food but we do like the occasional chicken madras!

Also, unfortunately my digicam has packed in, Pentax Optio M40, any decent repair shops or cheap shops for a new one??

Many thanks for your advice.

DoA

we had a bit of trouble finding a place to get cheap drinks at night that were fairly central without having to get a tram... we ended up drinking in our hostel bar - A Plus hostel which had CHEAP beer and good pretty cheap food.... but i dunno if you can go there without staying there, i think you can actually........

As far as drinking goes, I didn't go to any bars, but any restaurant (some with bars in them) that I went to had cheap beer, even if the food was a bit pricier. One restaurant I'd def try is Pizzeria Kmotra (V Jircharich 12, Praha 1.) The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Bohemia Bagel (4 locations including one near Charles Bridge and one near Old Town Square) is also good with some items at more reasonable prices. However, as an American, the price of bagels in Europe in general shocks me, so you may find most of the prices good:) A couple of traditional Czech restaurants that come highly recommended (and are supposedly quite inexpensive) are V Cipu (V Cipu - off of Panska) and Ferdinanda (Opletalova and Politickych veznu), though I haven't actually been to either one of them myself.

On a side note, while I've yet to get this info into the wiki, I have added most of my info on attractions and such, so check that out if you're interested.

Cheers!

if you're wanting cheap stay away from the old town square, especially the restaurants opposite the astronomical clock..big tourist area and they have caught on here that people will pay the same as they do in england (and more) which is V expensive for prague...your're looking at £3+ a pint in some of these places not the 20p you can get a couple of tram stops out of the centre. Buy beer from the local offies for about 5p /0.5L bottle!

There's a nice italian restaurant we found on wenceslas square. it has a stone pizza oven...the pizzas were awesome, and is nice and cheap!! cost about £9 for 2 mains with 2 drinks each. its half way up the right hand side (if you were looking at the museum) down a bit of an ally into a coutyard.

Enjoy!

Hello,

I know I am late to post comments on this thread but it is about restaurants in Prague and I just come back from Prague a week ago and believe me I was really upset because I didn't have any idea about the good restaurants in Prague this is the reason what exactly made me to post here. I searched out through few travel guides and believe me these travel guides resolved this problem of mine. Below is the list of some of the good travel guides:

http://www.travellerspoint.com/guide/Czech_Republic/
http://www.prague.biz/restaurants
http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/czech-republic/prague/where-to-eat?ec_s_name=asc

Hope this will be helpful for those who has just planned their trip to Prague.

Regards

Mariah

Yes we went to that pizza restaurant, it was very nice and cheap. And a nice marijuana smelling smoke coming from the other end of the restaurant, which was reassurance that we hadn't entered some prententious tourist restaurant selling food at 10x the price of the decently price places

Make sure you price places before you go into them - prices can vary drastically from place to place even if they are next door to each other!!
