As in any other European capital in Prague there is a wise choice of restaurants, cafés, bars, taverns and pubs with international cuisine, with different kinds of national cuisine, as well as restaurants specialised for example in fish, vension, vegetarian or cosher dishes.

Characteristic for the Czech cuisine are various classical dishes, such as pork with cabbage and dumplings, sirloin of beef, tomato, dill, msuhroom and other sauces with dumplings and beef,, or schnitzel with a special potato salad, or perhaps fruit dumplings strewn with cottage cheese and sugar. It is also possible to choose from many regional specialities, various potato and mushroom dishes as well as desserts, such as famous Bohemian and Moravian cakes.

A good dinner must be accompanied by the Czech national drink - beer. First and foremost worldwide known Pilsner beer, brewed in Plzeň, the city in the Western Bohemia. But many other excellent light and dar beers also figure in the offer - Budvar, Radegast, Gambrinus, Staropramen, Kozel, Bernhard, Krušovice and tens of other brands.

The selection of delicious Czech and namely Moravian wines is abundant as well.
