Czech Cuisine

Where in Pilsen can you find the best traditional and modern Czech cuisine?

Today you can go to Pilsen to try delicious food from all over the world. However, even the most self-professed exotic food lover can sit down with a plate of traditional Czech sirloin on cream or quality pork, sauerkraut and dumplings. Where can you go in Pilsen for a quality Czech meal?

U Salzmannů

The oldest pub in Pilsen first opened its doors in 1637. Here, in the pub’s stylish atmosphere, you can try not only Pilsen beer, but also traditional Czech specialties. In addition, you can even stay the night at U Salzmannů, meaning you’ll wake up in the morning right in the centre of the city.

Brewery barroom Na Parkánu

Similar to U Salzmannů, the Na Parkánu pub also has its own page in Pilsen’s history books. Here you’ll enjoy traditional beer-matched meals, including goulash and roast tenderloin in cream sauce. Simply a complete Czech gastronomical experience.

Švejk restaurant U Pětatřicátníků

Apart from Plzeňka Plzeň, Riegrova Street also holds the restaurant Švejk. Švejk is sure to tempt every visitor with their pork collar, sauerkraut and home-made potato dumplings. In addition, you can enjoy your meal in their outside eating area during the summer months, which offers a marvellous view of St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral.

Lokál Pod divadlem

Lokál is already a well-known and established name. All of the Lokál locations, including this one in Pilsen, below the J.K. Tyl Theatre, are famous for their perfectly drawn tankard beer and menu of delicious, traditional Czech food. 9 out of 10 Pilsen locals recommend the garlic rump steak with spinach and potato dumplings.

Plzeňka Pilsen

You will find the Plzeňka Plzeň restaurant not far from Republic Square. Here you can enjoy Czech specialties, such as pork knuckle, smoked ribs and schnitzels of every kind. And, of course, some of the restaurant’s precisely drawn beer helps to make the meal.

Pub and Restaurant Lékárna

A restaurant and alehouse with a direct view of St. Bartholomew’s Cathedral. If you’re searching for the best “šnyt” of Pilsner Urquell 12°, then go straight to Lékárna. Here you’ll find an entire tank of only the highest quality Pilsner.
