Hi, it’s me Marimonda!
Continued to the previous post on Cesky Krumlov, today I’d like to introduce some places I dined out.
Papa’s Living Restaurant
First meal I had in Cesky was at Papa’s Living Restaurant, which is specialized in Italian food. I chose this place just because I was hungry and it was just in front of my airbnb. The restaurant has a stunning view, and it was amazing seeing the sunset.
We ordered one tomato soup (59CZK),Shrimps (349CZK), Risotto (239CZK), Lasagna (249CZK), Tagliatelle with salmon (239CZK), and Tiramisu(109CZK). Including drinks it was about 60 USD. Considering the fact that it was a good meal and the restaurant was placed in the center of the town it wasn’t super expensive, and it seemed like it was one of the decent restaurants in town.
The service was fast and servers were nice. The servers were energetic and responded very fast and smiley. All the dishes we ordered were ok, but if you’re eating outside it gets colder than you think. However, it’s worth to eat on the terrace because the view from the restaurant is awesome.
On the following morning, I went to Zapa cafe. I also went there because it was just in front of my airbnb.
To be honest, I was surprised to see the price. I expected to be cheaper, but coffee shops in Cesky are not cheap at all. A cup of coffee in zapa cafe cost about $2~3. It’s not unbelievably expensive, but it’s absolutely a price for tourists. Most of the people coming into the store were tourists. I was hungry so I had it well, but I can tell it’s a bit overpriced place. Plus, the service was quite slow and the servers were not that friendly. I don’t recommend here, but sadly there’s not many alternatives in Cesky.
I also had a lunch at Svejk restaurant, a traditional czech style food restaurant.
As you can see in the picture, most dishes are accompanied with potatoes to fill you up. The portion is pretty big. Unfortunately, I don’t remember all the names of the food, and now I can’t recall them except the rib, which I ordered. hehe. The price on average was 280 CZK per dish. If you’re looking for a traditional czech food, you should visit here. They have various beef dishes you could imagine. All dishes were rich in flavor, if you like French boeuf bourguigon you would love their beef dishes.
Of course don’t forget to try some street snack. You can see the chimney roll very easily. Inside the roll, you can choose toppings to fill it up. I chose nutella, but you can add nuts, ice cream or whipped cream to make your own roll. The surface of the roll is covered with sugar, thus it’s a bit sweet but perfect to charge yourself in the afternoon. The price varies depending on your topping.
Last but not least, I DO recommend this barbecue restaurant! It was the best meal I’ve ever had in Cesky, and one of the best barbecues in my life. If you’ve read my previous articles, I am not picky with food but also a very hard person to be pleased with food. But it just WOWed me.
Bluegrass club seems like a local restaurant a bit away from the heart of the city. This family restaurant specialized in grill-cooked meat. We had burgers and ribs and both were successful. The restaurant is a bit far away from the center, it took about 15 mins by foot from the center. The price was also very cheaper compared to the previous two restaurant (as far as I remember it was about $10 per dish).
The only thing that I didn’t like was only cash is accepted in this restaurant. Since it was the last meal I had in Cesky, I was in short of cash and thinking of paying it with card. We had to order only three dishes because we didn’t have enough cash. What a shame. Fries and bread were not that special, but I still miss the meat! The owner is very nice and friendly, but since he did everything from taking the order to paycheck, the service was a bit slow.
Enjoy your trip with Marimonda! See you soon. 🙂
