The top 5 places to eat in Prague

Nase Maso
This was somewhere that was recommended to us by the guide on our beer tour and we were taken here to sample the hotdog joint next door. It has a couple of tables to eat at indoors but we got a takeaway. Make sure you book a table if you want to eat in. You can pick any piece of meat from the butchers and they will cook it for you there and then, or you can choose something from the menu. We opted for a meat loaf rather than the burger as it was a traditional dish. The chunky meat loaf came with a spicy homemade mustard and juicy pickles inside homemade ciabatta style bread. It travelled really well back to our hotel and despite the fact it was a little lukewarm by the time we got home, it was delicious! I'd definitely recommend paying them a trip if you fancy a quick lunch. GET THE HOTDOGS!

Cafe Savoy
Designed to be reminiscent of the First Czechoslovakian Republic, this ornate, lavish restaurant is certainly a sight to behold. With a beautiful Neo-Renaissance ceiling dating back to 1893, it really does feel like you've taken a step back into yesteryear. I'd read that they were famous for their breakfasts and the desserts so I managed to persuade my friends that we should swing by one morning. My best friend picked a winner with an incredible french toast topped with lashings of syrup and a generous scattering of fresh fruit. It was a sight for sore eyes. Then she got greedy and ordered an indulgent hot chocolate that was pure melted hot chocolate. We defiantly all stared at her green with envy as she tucked in! The warm, homemade bread was absolutely delicious and really helps to kick the continental breakfast up a gear. It's well worth visiting just for the atmosphere and the French toast. It's not expensive but it's not cheap for Prague. Still it's cheaper than London!

Cafe Imperial
Another suggestion from our beer tour, this restaurant was actually located about 200 yards from our hotel. What a find! Owned by the Czech version of Gordon Ramsey, it's located below a hotel. Decked out in the style of an old Czechoslovakian cafe, it was absolutely stunning so it's definitely one to dress up for. Deciding to sample as much of the local cuisine I could, I opted for the tender rabbit drenched in a tangy mustard sauce and served alongside traditional dumplings. The meat melted in your mouth and the unusual dumplings were a joy to eat. My friend got the veal schnitzel which I'd recommend too.

Knowing that the boys were steak fans, I decided to book in a trip to a decent steak restaurant. Cestr is well known for numerous cuts of beef so it's definitely one for hardcore meat eaters. But you will also find fish on the menu too. I pumped for the steak tarter as I had read that it was extremely highly regarded as one of the best to try in the city. I'm glad I went for it but I think it might be an aquired taste so not sure I would eat it again. We all went for the set menu which included a starter, second course with a side and a main course with a side. It was incredibly good value but far too much food! The portions are huge and I would suggest just to have a main and a side because it can get painful! Steak eaters will be in their element here. Just make sure you book a table as it gets very busy.

A bit of mouthful but this cute little cafe near the John Lennon Wall is a great place to stop for a quick lunchtime bite to eat. The homemade pasta with lashings of pesto was fantastic.The prices were very reasonable and the portions were generous which is what you need when you have a long day of walking ahead of you! I've heard they have a good breakfast offering too.
