Where to eat in Cesky Krumlov?

We will be spending a couple nights in Cesky Krumlov and want to know some recommendations for some typical Czech food and/or not to be missed restaurants in the city? Thank you!

There are a lot of good places to eat in Cesky Krumlov. One favorite is in the Hotel Latran. After breakfast is served to guests, this place becomes Cafe Studl (open to anyone who wants to eat there). They serve both savory strudel and sweet strudel so you can have a fantastic strudel lunch. The Czechs know how to do strudel.

We love the food at Papa's Living Restaurant from the onion rings to the ribs and with many other choices (don't skip dessert- it is too good to miss). This has a mix of Italian and other foods. All good.

Restaurant Bohemia has Czech food.

For an overpriced meal that everyone who visits Cesky Krumlov is tempted to try, there is Le Jardin Restaurant in Hotel Bellevue. I am not wild over it but thought I would mention it.

Cesky Krumlov is so small, it is easy to wander the streets around the main square and find a restaurant. I recall a lovely place that the entrance looked like a cave when we walked in. I ordered garlic soup there. It was awesome! Have tried to replicate it, but unable. Have a great trip!

We also liked Latran. Really enjoyed Katakomby Grill Restaurant in the town square. You go down a spiral stairs into a series of cellars carved out of the rock. It's open grill style cooking, and meats have never tasted so good. Loved the atmosphere.

I believe Mary and Dale are talking about the same place (Katakomby Grill). We were less impressed with the garlic soup, but everyone is different.

We enjoyed the fish restaurant (Rybarske Obceastveni, I think) for its simple preparation of really good local fish -- but remember that in the CR the big meal is at noontime. This place was busy at noon, but utterly deserted and eerily quiet in the evening when we visited. Staff speaks no English, but menus are printed in several languages.

Our favorite restaurant by far in Cesky Krumlov was Na Louzi tavern -- great food and beer (of course) with a boisterous local atmosphere. We so enjoyed the "chicken mixture" with mushrooms and Roquefort that we returned for it a second time. During our visit two older gentlemen led the patrons in singing Czech folk songs, accompanied by accordion and "spoons." You might call this touristy, but how many visitors from abroad know Czech? Reserve early in the day to be sure you get seats.
