Finding good places to eat in Prague is very easy. It’s a foodie city, for sure, and that’s one of the reasons why I love Prague so much. The city is literally stuffed with nice and cheap restaurants & bars. You can easily eat a decent meal for under €10,- if you know where to look. Of course, in the touristy centre you’ll pay a bit more, but it’s still affordable.

Before we hopped on the plane, I digged into some online guides and blogs to find the best restaurants in Prague to go to. I did find several, and we took it upon ourselves to try them all. Well, not all, since we were there on some sort of national holiday, so some of the restaurants were closed. No worries, I still have some good restaurant tip in Prague for you. Here we go:
Best burgers at Sad Man’s Tongue
Address: Konviktská 7, 110 00 Staré Město
The boyfriend loves burgers, a lot. So of course I searched for the best burger place in Prague. I found it: Sad Man’s Tongue. The whole thing looks like you step into an American 50’s style diner. They have a fair amount of burgers on the menu, some pretty standard, others a bit more unique. Good news for all vegetarians: the veggie burger menu is just as big as the regular burger menu.
The burger is served with delicious fries with chili mayonnaise, and you can order side dishes like cole slaw as well.
Story time: I asked the waiter why the restaurant is called Sad Man’s Tongue. So the guy who owns the place is a huge Johnny Cash fan. The band Volbeat made the song Sad Man’s Tongue as an ode to Johnny Cash. He liked that, so he named his restaurant after the song.
Yummy bagels at Just! Bagel
Address: Na Struze 230/6, 110 00 Nové Město
Although we had an AirBnB with a fully equipped kitchen, we didn’t use it at all. There were so many places to eat in Prague, so hell no I’m not going to cook myself. That meant going out for breakfast as well. If you are looking for a nice bagel, then Just! Bagel is the place to go. A super small little restaurant with a gazillion bagels to choose from. Really fresh, really yummy.
Asian food at Yori
Address: Masarykovo nábř. 246/12, 110 00 Nové Město
This restaurant was actually pretty close to our AirBnB, and I’m a sucker for Asian food. So this was a no-brainer. They specialize in Thai and Vietnamese cuisine. And let me tell you: it’s delish. We started off with fried spring rolls for the bf and fresh spring rolls with dipping sauce for me. Best. I. Ever. Had.
After that, a big bowl of Pho. De-li-cious. And the total of our bill was only €29,50! If you are into Asian food, go here. You won’t be disappointed!

Juicy steaks at Crazy Cow Steakhouse
Address: Dlouhá 8, 110 00 Hl.m. Praha-Praha 1
If you like steaks (and don’t want to pay top dollar for them), Crazy Cow Steakhouse is definitely worth a visit. The restaurant is near the main square, so it’s a bit more expensive than the other restaurants in this list. If you order the steak, all you get is a steak. All the other side dishes are extra orders. We weren’t super hungry, so we ordered nachos as a starter, and as a main we both got a steak and shared one portion of fries and one portion of coleslaw. For us this was perfect.
Good Food Bakery
Address: Karlova 160/8, 110 00 Staré Město
Okay, not really a restaurant, but definitely a place to visit if you ask me. This is where you can get the famous Trdelnik, also known as Chimney cake.
I made a whole article about Chimney Cake at Good Food Bakery >>
Something to keep in mind: many restaurants in Prague are cash only. So no debit or credit cards. This is definitely the case at Sad Man’s Tongue and Crazy Cow Steakhouse. I can’t really remember if the other ones were cash only as well.
Because of the National Holiday, the pizza place and Mediterranean restaurant we wanted to visit, were both closed. But we’ll will go back to Prague one day, and try these and a bunch of other restaurants. The good ones will of course be added to this list 🙂
