U Pinkasu Restaurant
In the heart of Prague awaits one of the most charming hidden gardens where you can sample hearty Czech food and the delicious amber nectar that is Czech beer. The center of Prague features many establishments serving Czech food and thirst quenching beer but it is sometimes difficult to find one that is not a tourist trap serving overpriced food and badly poured beer. It is with joy that we happily recommend the authentic U Pinkasu Restaurant, which is situated in the city center in between Prague’s Old and New Town. The restaurant was established in 1843 by Jakub Pinkas as a traditional Czech pub where one could always get good high-quality beer. Nowadays the restaurant functions as not only a pub but also as a lovely restaurant that features an amazing outdoor eating and drinking area that is overlooked by part of the Gothic Church of Our Lady of the Snows that was never finished due to lack of funds. The result is a sort of hidden garden overshadowed by impressive and towering Gothic looking ruins that provide not only a beautiful setting but also a shady refuge against summer heat. The interior of the restaurant is cozy and welcoming and can easily be agreed upon as being a refuge in the cold, snowy winter months, which makes this gem of a restaurant a real crowd pleaser in all types of weather. There are many reasons why regulars and tourists alike keep visiting this amazing place: excellent beer poured from the tap in a traditional, award winning manner, authentic and delicious Czech cuisine and a comfortable and pleasant environment. At the U Pinkasu Restaurant you will find a variety of cold and warm starters, soups, salads, beer specialties, old Czech specialties made from recipes from 1843, fish, vegetarian meals, delectable desserts and much more. If you are looking for a traditional, affordable and downright charming Czech restaurant in the center of Prague, U Pinkasu is where it’s at!
