Le Cafe Colonial
Le Cafe Colonial is one of the livelier places to eat in Prague. This colourful, funky café-restaurant deep in the heart of the Jewish Quarter, with its walls painted in deep reds, blues, yellows and greens, is hugely popular with local Josefovs and tourists alike. The café section (to the right as you enter the main door) is comfortable and suitable for a casual lunch and a cosy chat.
The main restaurant is slightly more overwhelming, with huge wrought-iron, Art Deco chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, a giant love-heart mural on the far wall and designer tables and chairs vying for your attention. The stylish menu heralds a high standard of cuisine drawn from a predominantly French menu, but tinged with Italian and international selections and the occasional regional flourish.
The wine list is complete, with a small choice of Czech and some reasonably priced Italian and French dishes. All in all, a tasteful but relaxed dining option and very good value for money.
