Czech Food

Overview

Quote:
My attention was drawn to an elderly couple obviously English who were desperately trying to order something to eat. The man speaking no Czech, the waiter speaking no English, they struggled with each other. "Can I help you out?" I asked the man who at that point viewed me as some etheral being sent to help him. A minute later and all was sorted out, the woman, a vegetarian had reluctantly come in to a Czech resataurant with her adventurous yet, ill prepared partner. She had been surprised to find it possible for me to order her fried cheese. The man had gone for the classic goulash and both had agreed to have pancakes for dessert having written down the words in Czech. I returned to my table, ate ...Read More

Restaurant | "Palffy Palac"

The Palffy Palac is located on the first floor of an old music school. The first time we came here my stomach sank as I realized that I was so underdressed. The saving grace was that the date and time of our appointment were midweek and early respectively. A tie is not required but a jacket and smart collared shirt are recommended. What a great place this is all year round but especially in the summer. It has a large lounge, a small lounge and an outside terrace. Live piano often accompanies the late diners. Celebrities mix with the people, the atmosphere is thick with discussion and conversation punctuated by a raised fork and the clink of gl...Read More

Kogo

Restaurant

Just off the beaten path, Kogo has been open for about 4 years and has acquired an excellent reputation. Very busy at lunch time, it specialises in Italian food of the highest quality. Fish, pasta and pizza are most popular but it also does a great steak. They have one particular meal which is Tagliatelle with salmon in a cream sauce which is my personal favourite for a lunch visit. In the evening, there are no main lights and the restaurant is lit by overhead "stars" and candles and it makes for great atmosphere. If you want Italian food on your visit you won't find better value for money and quality than Kogo.

Restaurant

Opens from 11am until 5-30pm. The easiest way to describe how to get there is to start at the Old Town Square and walk directly down the street called Dlouha, across the traffic lights and walk until you get to the square which is a car park. Govindas is on the left in the corner. Downstairs is a vegetarian sweetshop and upstairs is the restaurant. You have a choice of two meals 1-Big or 2-Small. They will also offer extras like bread and pakoras (or whatever was made that day and is usually 25kc). The big is 100kc and the small is 75kc. First come first serve for the seating and there are both low tables for folded leg sitting and normal tables and chairs. Take your tray back to the kitchen when you ...Read More
