If you are looking for a meal to remember, Prague restaurant Lary Fary is the place for you. Set in a baroque building halfway down Dlouhá, it is part of a new breed of eateries trying to appeal to all and sundry. Serving up a waywardly eclectic range of food – from Brazilian-style churascos to Greek mezze, Japanese sushi and Italian pastas – the menu is truly international. Gigantic skewers (meat, fish, vegetables) that dangle tantalizingly from hooks suspended over your table are the house specialty, and prove a memorable experience.
The venue itself is intimate and discreet: a small street-level spot with vaulted ceilings in the main dining areas and an underground feel. The attentive and tactful staff seem to know their stuff, and the restaurant is careful to set couples apart from larger parties to offer a little more intimacy.
A variety of live music can be enjoyed some nights of the week, and this can provide welcome distraction when culinary standards occasionally slip (dishes can taste bland or even a little cold). Come here if you want a wide choice, but be aware that the prices are ridiculously inflated.
