Our selection includes 9 restaurants, which we have divided into three categories: inexpensive, moderate and expensive. This division is only intended as a guide, it is by no means official categories.
All restaurant prices in Prague include 21% VAT. If a service charge of 10-12.5% is added to the invoice total, the final amount is usually rounded up to the nearest ten unit. If there is no service charge, a tip of 10-15% of the invoice amount is given.
The prices quoted are the average price for a three-course meal or the price for a bottle of the cheapest wine or house wine. VAT is included, but no service charge and no tip.

Sarah Bernhardt restaurant
Like the Francouzská a Plzeñská Restaurace , the Sarah Bernhardt is located in Obecní dům, the magnificent Art Nouveau building. The decor of the restaurant belonging to the Hotel Paříz is far less artistic than in the Prague Municipal House ( Obecní dům) , but with the original prints and advertising signs from the early 20th century on the walls, it is still a classic example of Art Nouveau. The menu is full of culinary highlights such as duck breast à la Rossini on caramelized chicory and chestnuts with champagne sauce as well as delicious vegetarian and French dishes. A pianist plays on Friday and Saturday evenings.

The Tavern has many advantages: The restaurant specializes in beer and cocktails and it serves food, primarily burgers, which fill the stomach but do not empty the wallet at the same time. You should definitely get to know the smoked BBQ-Pulled-Pork version like the house, but there is also a large selection of vegetarian dishes (e.g. burgers with spinach and beans) as well as salads and side dishes. Cocktails that serve as the restaurant’s trademark include The Tavern Wench, which contains vanilla-flavored vodka.
