Prague is well-known among travelers and study abroad students as an inexpensive city (or at least inexpensive in comparison to Western European and American cities). While the city is home to many inexpensive eats, it still claims a number of high-end, expensive restaurants. When you are in the mood to treat yourself to a fancy dinner, or are traveling with your parents, here are the local restaurants you don't want to miss out on. We promise, these spots are well worth the price.
La Finestra: This Italian restaurant offers Italian classics as well as delicious meat and fish dishes. Make sure to make a reservation at least a week before your visit, as the restaurant is small and fills up quickly. The staff here is really nice and will make an effort to make you feel at home. This restaurant is conveniently located and is a five minute walk from the Old Town Square.
Pagana: This family owned Italian restaurant is one of the best spots in Prague. This restaurant is best known for its flaming pasta, which is made and presented inside of a giant wheel of parmesan cheese. Make your reservation far in advance as you don't want to miss out on a visit here.
Grosetto Marina: This boat restaurant, situated right near old town square on the Vlatva River, also serves Italian cuisine. When entering the restaurant, every single staff member will greet you. The food is delicious and the boat gives its guests a great view of the Prague Castle and Petrin Tower.
Etnosvet: This restaurant is brand new but is quickly becoming a local favorite. While the food served here is vegetarian, the dishes are so good that vegetarians and carnivores alike keep coming back for more. They offer Mexican, Asian, Mediterranean, and Italian dishes.
Buddah Bar: This is a perfect place to go with a big group. You won't be able to miss the giant Buddha statue when you walk inside. Enjoy a delicious cocktail here and share a few dishes with your family or friends.
Agave: This fancy Mexican restaurant offers classic dishes such as tacos, burritos and quesadillas. Don't leave without ordering a frozen mango margarita. The staff is known to bring out free appetizers as “gifts” for guests.
Restaurant V Zátiší: The cuisine here is a mixture of Czech and Indian food. The décor is really stylish and modern with big comfy chairs and dim lighting. The wine list is great and features a few Czech wines. Indian and Czech is surely an odd combination, but here they make the combo delicious.
