As restaurants in Prague go, you won’t find a more traditional affair than here at Kolkovna, a modern Czech beer hall decorated in Art Nouveau style. It’s not only the décor that conjures up an old-school feel, however. The knowing, vaguely efficient waiters, Pilsner Urquell on draught (it’s owned by the brewery) and a menu that offers such traditional Czech classics as Moravian sparrow, pork knuckle and Pilsen Goulash, all add to the traditional allure of this place.
rnThe menu is far broader than you might expect from a local spot, and attempts to include modern and international cuisine – innovative hors d’ouevres appear alongside the ‘Things To Eat With Beer’ menu, for example. A slightly more breezy and refreshing establishment than many traditional spots, and in a very good location (central, but away from the main tourist draws), Kolkovna provides comfortable meals in a somewhat nostalgic environment.
