Many people think that it’s easy to find a quality Czech restaurant with a good atmosphere in the capital. Unfortunately it’s not as easy as you’d think. That’s why U Vodoucha in Žižkov should be top on your list. Even though this traditional Czech restaurant is only a 5 minute ride tram ride from the tourist-frequented main train station, you’ll find this place packed predominantly with locals who know what’s good. With an impressive number of Czech microbrews on tap, a lunch menu with classic Czech dishes on offer everyday, and decor that makes you feel you’re hanging out in a village pub in the 1920s, U Vodoucha is the place to go to try traditional Czech cuisine and beer. And while you’re in the neighborhood, don’t forget a stop at the nearby Žižkov TV Tower where you can see David Černý´s babies up close and personal.
