One of a chain of 'Living restaurants' in the Czech Republic specialising in American style food. Offering a wide range of well-priced dishes that won't burn a hole in your wallet, pasta and Tex-Mex food predominates, while certain items are available in smaller portions for the ladies!

As you'd expect, duck and pork dishes abound, while excellent vegetarian and noodle offerings help ensure a varied 'pick and mix' meal. With Tsing Tao beer and local brews on tap, it all makes for a pretty decent Chinese.

Situated in a 19th-century neo-Baroque palace, the Pálffy offers an innovative mix of Czech and international specialties, with especially well-judged fish and game dishes.

The restaurant itself is sumptuously decorated inside, particularly the ornate frescoes on the vaulted ceilings. Offering delicious traditional and contemporary French cuisine - with some ingredients imported directly from France - service is attentive without being overbearing.

Prague's most upmarket Greek eatery has a menu comprising of 'ancient' or 'classic' dishes which, thankfully, doesn't seem to deter groups from ordering moussaka en masse! A well-ordered choice of dishes include traditional lamb cutlets with rosemary, alongside more adventurous offerings such as grilled lobster with squid ink pasta. Good, but expensive.

One of Prague's finest (formal) dining rooms, with an enviable reputation for high quality food and service. Here, the kitchen takes a classic, but innovative approach to the menu, drawing upon a number of culinary influences for inspiration. Appetizers such as mexican prawn with Chardonnay sauce and vanilla are sublime, while beef, duck and lamb mains are among the best in Prague. Surprisingly affordable, although booking (well in advance) is essential.

Housed in a 14th-century Gothic cellar, Flambée offers some of the very best Czech and international dishes in town. Seafood is a particular strength, though you might be tempted by fine Argentinean steak or an equally delectable rabbit leg ragout with Dijon sauce and purée of baked aubergine. Reassuringly expensive, but worth it.
Na Kampě 8b, Praha 1, Malá Strana, Tel: +420 257 532 685, Fax: +420 257 533 223, E-mail: email@example.com, Website: www.kampapark.com, Metro: Malostransk then Tram 18, Open: 11.30am-1.30am daily, All major credit cards,
As one of Prague's most fashionable nightspots, the restaurant enjoys a superb setting on Kampa Island. The rich red interior is splendid too, although ultimately any meal is judged by the overall quality of food served. In this respect, Kampa Park doesn't disappoint, with a fine seafood oriented menu that includes lovingly crafted dishes such as grilled lobster with sugar snow pea-cocunt purée and basil lasagne. Such attention to detail is also why the rich and famous (including Hilary Clinton, Bono, Michael Douglas and Bruce Springsteen) have visited over the years.
Karolíny Světlé 21, Praha 1, Staré Město, Tel: +420 222 220 008, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, Website: www.stoleti.cz, Metro: áíříNarodni trida, Open: noon-midnight daily, AmEx, MC, DC, EC, V,
Popular downtown restaurant in which all menu items are named after famous people/stars. For example, you could opt for a Marlene Dietrich (stuffed avocado with whipped Roquefort and marzipan) or tuck into an Ernest Hemingway (grilled beefsteak flambéed with gin). And, of course, there's no better way to finish off a meal than with a portion of Adalbert Stifle...

Game dishes abound, while fresh water fish including pike perch, can also be ordered. For vegetarians, a limited number of dishes, including tortellini with Roquefort sauce are available, while Czech and French selections make up a nicely rounded wine list.

A lovely Italian restaurant located near to the banks of the Vltava and just a stone's throw from the Charles Bridge. Using only the freshest, most authentic ingredients (shipped in from the motherland) Don Giovanni has a wide-ranging, albeit traditional menu of fish, poultry and pasta dishes. With a comprehensive wine list, comfortable, neo-Classical surroundings and some of the best puddings in town, it all makes for a thoroughly enjoyable meal!
Pizza Kmotra Kavárna
V Jirchářích 12, Praha 1, Tel: +420 224 934 100, E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, Website: www.kmotra.cz, Metro: Narodni trida, Open: 11am-midnight daily, No credit cards,
With tasty pizza made using a real wood fired oven, and prices starting at just over Ł1 for a basic Margherita, Kmotra is an enjoyable and inexpensive dining option. In all, there are twenty six different pizza, plus a selection of salads and pasta. Puddings are calorific ice-cream concoctions, although the toffee sundae and blueberry varieties are both worth the sacrifice! A great budget choice.
Taverna Toscana - Piano Bar, Restaurant & Pizzeria
Malé náměstí 11/22, Praha 1, Staré Město, Tel: +420 221 611 535, +420 221 611 536, E-mail: email@example.com, Website: www.tavernatoscana.cz, Metro: Staromestska/Narodni trida, Open: 11.30am-midnight daily, AmEx, MC, EC, V,
A touch of Tuscany in the heart of downtown, the taverna has been thriving in Prague for six years. Home to a pizzeria (at No. 22) as well as a restaurant (No. 11), both offer a tempting assortment of Italian antipasti, salads, pasta, risotto and meat dishes. Pizza is priced at around Ł3, while a la carte options are slightly more expensive. Vegetarians will fare better at the pizzeria, although in both cases, they offer a good selection of beers and Italian wines. Highly regarded.

A good value Mexican restaurant located in a quiet part of Malá Strana. Although we're not too sure about the neo-Alamo décor, Azteca offers excellent fajitas, enchilladas and quesadilla, along with over 25 types of tequila (ideal for fast draw contests during a meal). Enjoy!

Formally the French-Moroccan Casablanca restaurant, although now completely transformed into an enthusiastic Lebanese eatery. A traditional setting, good hot/cold mezzés and kebabs, plus an extensive range of meat oriented main dishes (not to mention the alluring prospect of baklava and mouhalabié for pudding), make this one well-worth seeking out.
Thai Restaurants in Prague
Rámová 5, Praha 1, Staré Město, Tel: +420 222 325 119, Fax: +420 222 327 009, E-mail: email@example.com, Website: www.orangemoon.cz, Metro: Namesti Republiky/Staromestska, Open: 11:30am-11:30pm, All major credit cards,
Despite a rather non-descript location, the Orange Moon (based in a cellar) offers a good selection of Thai, Indian and Burmese dishes at very reasonable prices. For starters try tom kha hai (Thai chicken soup with coconut milk and ginger) or tom yum kung (hot and sour shrimp soup) - both excellent. Staples such as pad Thai and Singapore fried noodles are also fresh and tasty, while the Moon's vegetarian curries aren't as highly charged as the menu would suggest. Puddings are a let down though. Simple ice-cream affairs, with absolutely no nod to traditional (and rather good) Thai desserts, otherwise subtract from a cheap, and rather good eatery.
Vegetarian Restaurants Prague

Expanded from its take away bar on Jungmannova 1, Country Life is crowded at lunchtimes, with inevitable long queues at the cafeteria-style counter. That's because even non-vegetarians are impressed by the salads, pizza and soups. Seating upstairs (why it's included here), although main dishes could do with a visit to the salt mines. Closed weekends.

This Hare Krishna club, tea room and restaurant has no menu as such, simply the dishes of the day for 75 CZK. The food arrives on a tray with varied small servings, which add up to a big meal. You can sit on the floor to eat, but have to remove your shoes to do so. Frequented by a young crowd (mainly as students can gorge themselves for next to nothing) Góvinda offers cheap, inoffensive food. Free water with lemon on the tables.

With a plum location opposite the Old Town Square's Astronomical Clock, the Milena is certainly one of Prague's busier cafés, though sadly not among the best. Named after Franz Kafka's former girlfriend, the writer and political activist, it offers only average coffee, pastries and lunches, while service (particularly during the summer) is laboured.
Grand Hotel Evropa

An impressive, albeit slightly faded example of a turn-of-the-20th-century coffee house, with a fine Art Nouveau interior. The Evropa's location on Wenceslas Square is reflected by suitably high prices, while service (especially during the summer) is distinctly sluggish. Cakes and pastries are quite good, but coffee tastes like a chicory based substitute.
