Jizera, is about 100 mt going down from the statue of Wenceslav

The funny thing about Jizera is that this is a two storey complex
with three restaurants and the best one is hidden downstairs where
nobody can find it. The management should put up better signs as

go inside the bistro, from which they can also go upstairs to the
But the best 'real' Jizera restaurant is straight down the stairs
as you come in from the street.
They have good food (try the pfeffer steak with baked potatoes),
a superb interior - real old Prague cellar - and good service.
It is rarely full and the other diners are mostly Prague citizens.
The atmosphere is quiet, low lights and really nice place to escape
to from the hustle and bustle of Vaclavskè Namesti and the
rest of Prague center.
Last but not least... the prices are not those of Prague center
at all but very reasonable.
Here's an example:
Pfeffer Steak - Euro 6,00
Baked potatoes - Euro 0,75
Beer 0,33x 2 - Euro 2
Espresso - Euro 0,75
Slivovic - Euro 1,20
Total = Euro 10,70
If you're touring Prague say from the Prague Castle and Hradcany,
down Nerudova, accross Charles Bridge, through the old town onto
Vaclavskè Namestì ... Jizera is a good place to end
up at either for lunch or dinner.
