Central and Eastern Europe are becoming increasingly popular destinations, particularly for business travel, and with cities like Prague it’s easy to see why. Though traditionally dominated by its industrial and manufacturing sectors, the city is seeing growth in services from finances, real estate and consulting to more tourist-oriented areas.
On top of this, it’s also a great place to spend a few days exploring. Small enough that you don’t feel swamped and affordable enough that you can enjoy your time without needing to splash out, Prague is the perfect place for a business trip. Read on for our top picks of places to eat while you’re in the city, and a reminder to purchase a decent business travel insurance policy before you go.
Countries like Italy and France are well known for their national cuisine, and most tourists would also be familiar with German classics like bratwurst. Czech food, though, is rarely so well known.
While all the places on this list bring their own unique twist, diners should expect lots of roasted meats and vegetables and rich, hearty stews and goulashes.
La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise
One of only two Prague restaurants to be awarded a Michelin star in 2018, La Degustation should be top of the list for any food connoisseur. Popular in business travel, companies often like to host guests in this exceptional eatery.
Its daily menus are based directly on a nineteenth century Czech cookbook, but expertly updated for modern diners. Sit back and let your taste buds enjoy the treat.
This is another local favourite – luxury travellers often choose Mlynec for its excellent location overlooking the famous Charles Bridge. Here, diners get to see the crowds go by below as they relax and dine on seasonal Czech classics.
Popular for its affordable lunch menu, Zvonice is an excellent place to get a meal at any time of day. Offering modern spins on Czech classics once again, Zvonice offers the unique experience of dining in a Gothic tower high above a sixteenth century street.
La Bottega Linka
Offering a heartier breakfast than many places on the city, La Bottega rewards multiple visits with its Italian influenced cuisine. Meat, fish and vegetables are cooked to perfection in charcoal-fired ‘X-ovens’, lending it a unique woody, smoked flavour.
Before You Go
To make your trip as stress free as possible, make sure you purchase a decent business travel insurance policy to make sure you’re covered for any eventuality. If you’re a frequent traveller, you might benefit from longer-term coverage – especially beneficial for business travel. Insurance is a great way to give you peace of mind while you’re away so that you can focus on what really matters.
