Any tips for must eat restaurants? Not too expensive and preferably in city centre. Fine with almost everything!
Thanks!

It really depend if you want to try local dishes (I would recommend Lokál in Dlouhá or U Vodoucha which is much more authentic), want to get a taste of Prague's post-hipster scene (Jam & Co. is interesting and so is Javánka, both Asian-fusion spots near from each other), or maybe just prefer meat (Čestr is great and locally sourced, but so is Maso & kobliha, although they take inspiration from English pub food). Or just try "chlebíček" (open-face sandwich) at Sisters' Bistro.

(Generally speaking restaurants in Prague are not very expensive. For locals, lunch for anything around 150 CZK and dinner around 200 CZK is basically the norm.)

There are a lot mentioned here that I don't know but I seldom go into Old Town where the tourists and Segways tend to congregate, I'm sorry to say the you are most likely to be overcharged or given smaller portions here, too. Go a little further afield, easy to do with a map or GPS, via trams. You see a lot that way, too.
An icon is Café Slavia, right next to the river at Divadlo, with #22 tram stop in front. It was traditionally where the dissidents met to plot. Now, there is a great little piano player in a tux in the evenings who plays non-stop, classical, film themes, show tunes. When I went to Café Louvre, across the street a ways, the waiter was incredibly rude and didn't come back to let me give him my order. So you never know what kind of service you'll get. Some people are happy to practice English and some hate Americans.
The best thing is to Google the types of restaurants you want--they ALL have websites with maps and menus. Just check your receipt before you pay to make sure the price is as stated and there are no extra items added. (Butter and catsup are charged more, however, but not much. Do tip 15%, it will make you feel good because most Czechs are incredible cheapskates. 25 crowns equals a dollar. Feel like a millionaire with a nice tip and they really appreciate it.

Mistral at metro station Staroměstska. Very good food, not expensive, daily menus, great desserts, nice interior. Go there :)
Lehka hlava - also in the centre. Good veggie place.
Atmosfera - near the river, easy food, good, nice "atmosphere"
Cafe Louvre - best for brunches, big portions, Louvre is a must.
