The white walls and primary-colored furnishings of this new gastronomy hub give off a young, cafeteria-style vibe that contrasts the historic fairy tale aura of nearby Malá Strana. This side of the river fades from historic elegance at the Prague Castle down to a contemporary shopping center around Anděl as you move south. Fresh & Fat’s menu offers high quality choices from early morning breakfast to tasty grilled meats, seafood, and pasta for lunch and dinner. Glass cases of cakes and pastries as you enter remind visitors to save space for dessert. A solid meal can provide fuel for a hike up nearby Petřín Hill, or a walk across the river to join the young, trendy crowd congregating beside the river’s edge at Naplavka during warm-weather evenings.
Time Out tip: Seafood isn’t always the obvious choice in land-locked Central Europe, but this restaurant lives up to the “fresh” in its name so indulge without hesitation.
Petřín Hill & Tower: For lookout points and picnic-worthy grass
