Place looks nice downstairs in beautiful Municipal Hall, but that's basically all there is to it. The smell of duck is so strong inside we wanted to walk out! I wish we had cause it wasn't a good experience at all! Bread came cold and hard, then we had to wait 30mn for our dishes (I noticed it's a common... More

We wanted to try a traditional Czech meal, and while the ads for Plenska might look a little "tourist trap" like from the outside, we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is beautiful inside and the food was delicious. The waiters clearly cater to an international crowd and had spoke great English.

We had a Prague Christmas lunch here (Dec. 24) and it was delicious and felt traditional and festive. This restaurant is very nice and historic feeling, but it was not overpriced and it didn't feel like it was trying to gauge tourists or be gimmicky. Highly recommend the duck. When you enter the Municipal House, go through the main doors... More

The municipal house is absolutely amazing and worth a visit and the Plzenska is one of a few dining options inside the building (on lower floor). The decor is great but I would agree with other reviewers, stop for a coffee and cake just to enjoy the historic atmosphere and maybe dine somewhere else. None of three of us finished... More

The food is perfectly fine, but the real experience is the traditional environment. Have dinner there before a show upstairs, and then head to the very cool Art Deco American Bar adjoining.

Great traditional Czech restaurant with accordion player to while away the the evening. A drink in the American bar before hand is a must. All of this whilst surrounded by Mucha inspired Art Nouveau decor. A real step back in time to Bohemian halcyon days.

The original restaurant in the Municipal House opened in 1920's - done in Secession architecture, including murals, furnishings and fixtures. Restored in the early 90's to its original beauty, it is a well preserved jewel, specializing in Czech national dishes, serving Czech Pilsen beer & Czech specialties. International dishes are available. The food is delicious (we had a duck and... More

I enjoyed this meal. It is a good way to experience Czech food and tradition. I enjoyed the accordion player and singer but they went on a break for most of the time we were there. They were just starting on the well known songs I would have enjoyed as we were leaving. I did try to make a reservation... More

I have tried many of the different items from the menu and nothing has let me down. So shortly the food is very good, staff was polite and with a good sense of humor and the building was just beautiful.

We asked the consierge at our hotel to help us to book where we could enjoy Czech food and hospitality. The Plzensk fit the bill. When we arrived it was apparent that they were a bit short on staff. Although we had a reservation and the place was not full we were left standing at the door for twenty five... More

Staying in Nove Mesto (New Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Nove Mesto (New Town)
Nearly 700 hundred metres long, Wenceslas Square represents the most frequent and buzzing crossroads of the city. The National Museum in the upper part of the square watches over your spending spree in countless shops and retail stores lining the entire square, which ends at Na Příkopě, the most famous shopping street. When tired or broke, you can explore the city's underpasses, which can take you to the Old Town or to the courtyards of art nouveau houses with secret gems of greenery, white benches and rose bushes that provide unexpected peace in the midst of the city. Be sure to pay a visit to the traditional cafés, classic Czech pubs, cinemas and theatres. National Theatre near the river has a lot to offer to foreigners. Go to the river bank and enjoy live music and drinks while watching a sunset behind Prague Castle.
