Want to taste some of the best food Prague has to offer, all in one convenient location?


Many of Prague’s respected restaurants will gather together at the 2018 edition of the Prague Food Festival, which will take place this weekend, Friday May 25 through Sunday May 27, at the stately Vyšehrad Castle grounds.

Now in its 12th year, Prague Food Festival has long been known as a celebration of the best restaurants the Czech Republic has to offer.

This year, 22 top restaurants from Maurer’s Selection Grand Restaurant, a long-respected guidebook from Czech chef Pavel Maurer and local equivalent to the Michelin Guide, will take part in the fine food fest.

Participating in this year’s festival are top Prague restaurants like Deer Prague, Bellevue, AUREOLE, Francouzská restaurace Art Nouveau (at Obecní dům), Yoshihashi, Le Grill, and many others.

For Praguers, the fest also presents an opportunity to sample fine cuisine from restaurants around the country like Chateau Mcely, Terasa Jordán (Tábor), Zámek Ratměřice, and Zámek Liblice.

Also preparing some special delicacies at this year’s fest will be the Czech National Culinary Team and the Czech Association of Chef and Confectioners.

In addition to the top restaurants listed above, side exhibitors will present dishes like Austrian Burgenland specialties, goose liver, rolled ice cream, Italian cheeses, and much more to go with beer and coffee specials, organic wines, champagne, and cocktails.

Tickets (and food prices) aren’t exactly inexpensive: a 500 crown entrance will net you 300 crowns (10 “grands”, which can be purchased separately at 30 crowns apiece) in credit to sample meals from the various stands at the festival. But you’ll probably want to buy some more grands before leaving.

Tickets can be purchased online for the discounted price of 450 crowns.
