5 of the nicest modern bistros Prague

Bistro 8

Veverkova 8

+420 730 511 973


This street has become a hype since the opening of Bistro 8. Go and try their lunch menu, which is inspired by all corners of the globe, or order a coffee with some non-milk – made of dates, almonds and a pinch of Himalaya salt.

Martin's Bistro

Velehradská 4

+420 774 100 378

This laidback place feels like your local watering hole, where everybody is welcome (including kids and dogs). Martin puts together a carefully tailored menu (pairing food from around the world with French wines). A generous selection of spirits and cocktails is a reminder of his previous career as a bartender.

Krystal Bistro

Sokolovská 99

+420 222 318 152


Experienced chef Petr Tyrichtr decided to leave a famous gastro chain six years ago. His bistro aspires to continue the tradition of the simple Parisian eateries
of the 1930s. Peek into the busy kitchen in the back room, a glass of Matuška IPA in hand.

Bistro Milada

Šmeralova 22

+420 222 520 419

This is the closest you can get to a true French bistronomic experience in Prague. Treat yourself to three courses, each of them jam-packed with seasonal flavours and colours. If at some point you feel like licking their non-matching plates clean, then do – they will love you all the more for it! But make sure to save some room for their homemade marshmallows that come with the bill.

Wine Food Market

Strakonická 1

+420 733 338 650


This will be your shortest tram ride ever to Italy. Enter through the pasticceria, explore the flower stall, the fishmonger’s and the pasta bar before sitting down at one of the long tables in the middle of the busy hall.
