Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Prague

Gran Fierro
Found in Prague’s New Town, Gran Fierro is an Argentinian steakhouse and cocktail bar decorated with light industrial flair.
Nejen Bistro
Offering delicious bistro fare in Prague’s Karlin district, Nejen Bistro is a chic, minimalist restaurant with a fresh, seasonal approach to its menu.
Aureole
David
The richness of the food is something remarkable at David, where the Czech Republic's larder of readily available game is combined with the French love of sauces to create a menu so intense belts need to be loosened before meals have actually begun.
Boheme Bourgeoise
Boasting its Czech credentials is what this restaurant is all about. Its selection of traditional food is all created using ingredients bought from Czech farms and small organic producers. The cavernous yet pared down interior adds to the authentic f
U Maliru
The oldest restaurant in the city, U Maliru offers fine French cuisine and a beautiful romantic setting.
Universal
Enjoy good French food in albeit slightly surreal surroundings. Out of the way but worth the visit.
Sahara Cafe
The atmosphere is the main attraction to this Middle Eastern themed restaurant. The candles and lanterns combine with the comfy sofas and seats to create the impression of a chilled out casbah.
Yami
Our choice from the many sushi restaurants that have cropped up in Prague of recent years, Yami combines a friendly atmosphere with stylish interior and your staple sushi dishes.
Lary Fary
Part of a new breed of restaurants trying to appeal to all and sundry. From Brazilian-style churascos to Greek meze Japanese sushi and Italian pastas the feel is truly international. An upmarket clientele come for the surprisingly good global fare.
Essensia
The Chef's ambition for Essentia was that it be part of a movement to return Prague to its glory days as a centre for culinary excellence. With its wide selection of Eastern dishes cooked to gormet perfection, it certainly achieves its goal.
Francouzska
This is all about turning back the clock. As waiters glide across the floor in Prague's most elegant restaurant, attention to detail seems imperative from the table settings and service to the design and architecture. An excellent menu rounds things
Lehka Hlava
An amazingly jazzy interior compliments the bright colours that the completely veggie menu has to offer in this funky eating spot. Situated on 'the shortest street in Prague' you will feel like you've stumbled upon a hidden wonder.
Soho+
A trendy eatery in a lightly out of the way location, Soho + will fulfil any of your culinary desires with its range of French, Greek, Italian and Japanese food. The chic-est place to eat brunch in all of Prague.
Brasserie Ullmann
Courting couples and illicit lovers meet in the relative seclusion of this charmingly smart restaurant, set on the ground floor of a redeveloped Chateau in the middle of one of Prague's parks.
U Pava
U Pava has an old fashioned opulence ingrained into its dark wood panelling, painted ceilings, antique furniture and rich, dark textiles. A subdued lighting scheme adds a romantic ambience to proceedings and the clientele reflect this.
U Prince
U Prince's roof terrace has some of the most beautiful views across the Old Town, it beats the pavement cafe that draws crowds for coffee waiting for the astronomical clock to chime and the morality play to begin.
Aromi
An atmospheric and stylish Italian, Aromi will ensure that your joint desires for fresh well prepared food and atmospheric dining are met to a high standard. A classy experience that shouldn't be missed.
Maitrea
If you are on the path of personal development, and in search of some positive energy, Maitrea, one of the new vegetarian restaurants in Prague, is the place for you.
SaSaZu
Newcomer to the scene, SaSaZu has quickly made a place for itself among the best restaurants in Prague. 
Alchymist Grand
Located within Mala Strana's charming cobbled streets this stunning newish hotel has jumped straight to the top of Hg2's list of favourites. Opulent to the core decent sized well appointed rooms provide marvelous respite from the tourist hordes.
U Modre Kachnicky 2
The Blue Duck is one of Prague's more charming Czech restaurants. Set in the Old Town, a few minutes from the main square and in the heart of the tourist mass, it is somewhat surprising to find a local restaurant of this quality.
Kolkovna
If it's a beer hall with charming decor and relaxed ambiance that you're looking for then Kolkovna is the place for you. Tucked away from the main tourist drag, there is a selection of beers and traditional dishes to suit everyone.
U Patrona
U Patrona is almost the perfect restaurant in Prague for an intimate evening, especially if you can secure the balcony table on a warm summer's evening. Sophisticated and elegant with attentive service and refined cooking.
U Zlate Studne
Sarah Bernhardt
An Art-Deco beauty, this restaurant opens doors to a classier kind of dining.
Mirellie
The second in this chain of Mediterranean restaurants in Prague, Mirellie in Vinohrady is similar to its counterpart in Dekvice, serving up a pleasant meal for very reasonable prices.
Kogo
Kogo has managed to maintain its extraordinary popularity over the last few years, which has been largely based upon their ability to offer delicious Italian food at reasonable prices accompanied by a constantly buzzing atmosphere.
Cowboys
Having revamped one of Prague's more famous name restaurants, Bazaar, the Kampa Group have created a super stylish steak house, complete with bar and summer terrace from which Prague's bright young things and green-eyed tourists can enjoy the view.
La Finestra
Italian chef, Riccardo Lucque opened this - his second restaurant  - in 2009 and diners have been lapping up their Italian meat specialties ever since...
La Veranda
Café La Veranda's sleek interior sits beneath street level, viewed through long windows set at ankle height. The menu (innovative, for Prague) fuses foods, spices and cuisines from East and West into a simple and healthy cuisine.
Sansho
This Asian fusion restaurant, created by acclaimed former-Nobu chef, Paul Day, is rather unique in its offering...
Bellevue
Bellevue's accomplished international menu draws in a grown-up crowd to sample some of the city's best cooking, although at times the atmosphere can be slightly rarified. A summer terrace has views across the Charles Bridge and towards Mala Strana be
Parnas
Parnas has many things going for it, a wood panneled Art Deco room, breathtaking evening views, proximity ot the National Theatre, and last, but not least, a gourmet Czech menu. Glamourous, elegant and definitely worth a visit.
Rybi Trh
We're always surprised by the quality of restaurants one finds if you stray slightly off the beaten track. The selection of fish and seafood at Rybí Trh especially impressive for a small land-locked country.
Grosseto Marina
Grosseto Marina, the newest branch of the chain of restaurants in Prague, offers a reliable and affordable Italian meal.
Kampa Park
Prague's first truly modern gourmet restaurant has moved with the times, keeping up with changing tastes for food. Set in an idyllic spot on the banks of the Vltava, this is highly recommended for all visitors to Prague for that blow-out meal.
Khajuraho
Offering luxury dining in the heart of Prague, Khajuraho provides a venue for lovers of Indian food who are willing to pay a little more for the pleasure.
Mlynec
Mlynec's great selling point is its position, next to the Charles Bridge with a terrace over looking the river and up to the Castle. Marek Purkart's cooking stands head and shoulders above the remarkably uninspiring decor.
U Raka
The elgantly simple U Raka is a revelation, the country farmhouse style main building could be miles away from Prague. On entering the main building the warm glow that infuses it spreads through you and keeps you wanting to stay longer.
