I second the suggestion that restaurants in that part of town cater to tourists and so will be overpriced. There are all sort of sites on Google and of course, Trip Advisor. I love writing scathing reviews about the ones that are bad.

Hi Chris, can you be more specific? Many of the restaurants in the Old Town are overpriced and not that good. But can also find all sorts of nice places - if you know where to look.

For example, Mincovna serves Czech food at a fair price and is directly in the Old Town Square, Lokál, also very good, is just a few steps away in Dlouhá.

Thanks. We are arriving this evening to Prague and are staying at the Ramada that is very near Old Town Square. Of the three suggested, which would be your top choice? Thanks for your help.

Both, it just depends on what kind of experience you prefer. Lokál looks more like a traditional pub (but everything is clean, professional, tasty). Mincovna is closer to a restaurant.
Ondrej...thanks so much for your advice. We had dinner last night at Mincovna and it was excellent. The service was outstanding, the beer and wine was very good and the food very well prepared with large portions. We also found the cost to be quite reasonable for what we received, at least by American standards. We paid the equivalent of $120US for four people with a bottle of wine, 4 beers, two starters and four entrees. Thanks again.

I'm really glad you had a good time, Chris!
Now I'd like some ideas for a restaurant for tonight to get away from the Old City Center. You mentioned that it is better to get away from here. We can Uber. So, please let me know your recommendations. Thanks.

Hello Chris, did you receive my email with restaurant recommendations?:)
Yes we did. We are going to the gourmet beef place today for a good burger. We are also going to a concert. Thanks again for everything. We really enjoyed our day together and your wonderful tour.
