Try Field in the Jewish quarter; one of the best meals I've ever had. Also U Hrocha in New Town for traditional food. Best old beer hall I know is U Medvidku. It's not as touristy as some of the others, and they brew their own beer.

Pub U Hrocha is in Mala Strana (Lesser Quarters), not in New Town. One goes there for beer which is excellent, not for food.

Been a while since I wasin U Hrocha, but is great , real authentic place but a lot of tourists.
U Medvidku used to be a favourite place of mine but has gone downhill rapidly in the last year or two, food and service has really dropped in quality.

this place is near Wenseslas square,very good food and if in the right area of the restaurant can see it being prepared.

this is in the heart of the old town, sometime hard to find but worth the effort ,real old fashioned Czech Pub.

I go to this place for the beer but the food is very good,try and get into the upstairs rooms,or if the weather is nice then the garden area which can only be described as eclectic , just off the bottom of Wenseslas Square.

where are you staying , might be able to suggest place nearby ,personally my favourite places are well away from the city centre.

Sad to hear about U Medvidku going downhill. It's been 4 years since I was there last. First time I went, in 1995, I was the only person in the place who spoke English. Made the mistake of ordering a pilsner...

When we lived Prague we took all of our guests to Klášterní šenk: https://www.klasternisenk.cz/en/

Atmosphere, food and beer all great! We just visited Prague a couple weeks ago and made sure to visit this restaurant. Easily accessed by taking tram 22 or 25 to 'Břevnovský klášter'. As an added bonus, the monastery grounds are lovely.

I agree! Klasterni Senk is terrific. It can fill up though, so make sure that you make a reservation.

I too like Klasterin Senk,I was last in there at New Year and had their roast duck which was lovely,the time I was in before I had rabbit which was brilliant but had some great meals in there over the years, a bit higher end than many places and certainly worth booking especially at weekends.There is a new bar opened up just across from there that I am going to check out next week.

The spot may not look very traditional, but it's the place for a certain local dish - the fried cheese.

It's called U Houmru and is the Zizkov district, and the cheese is great, and so are the fries with it. A beer to pair with this is certainly a given.

A few years back, I really enjoyed a place called U Kroka Vratislavova 28 128 00 Prague 2.

The food was well prepared and tasty, with a mix traditional and more modern choices. Very reasonably priced for the quality. Casual, and it seemed very much a neighborhood place.

I see that it's gotten Trip Advisored, so maybe it's changed.
