Potrefena Husa restaurants, Staropramen group

Burger Potrefena Husa (© Potrefena Husa)While walking in Prague’s centre, you will probably notice several Potrefena Husa restaurants. If you get in, you’ll see that they only have Staropramen beer or beers from the same group (for instance Stella Artois, which is distributed by Staropramen on the Czech market). This is simply due to the fact that this chain of restaurants was launched by the beer group.

A popular chain of restaurants

This chain of restaurants is very popular amongst the young working population (20-30 years of age), and the brand Potrefena Husa has succesfully developed in secondary cities namely in Plzen, Olomouc, Ostrava or Zlin. Potrefena Husa has now more than 30 restaurants operated in the Czech Republic.

Menus may vary depending on restaurants, but you’ll always find the Czech classic dishes (svickova, Plzen gulas, or pork schnitzel), as well as some very common international dishes such as burgers, chicken wings, grilled salmon and potato purée.

A great option for a cheap lunch

Some of the restaurants are located in the very centre – if you’re planning on going there for dinner, make sure you make a booking as they get very busy even during week days. At lunch time, you will be able to get the typical lunch menu (very common in Czech Republic) where you get a soup and a choice of 4 main dishes (one being light in calories). The soup will cost you approximately one euro, while the main dish costs from 4 to 6 euros – a great deal especially if you’re on a small budget. Still, one thing you may have to do is ask one of the waiters (who are always happy to help) to translate the lunch menu for you, as these are generally only on Czech.

Here below are some of Potrefena Husa restaurants in the centre :

“The Pub”, a great way to enjoy Pilsner Urquell beer in Prague

Pilsner Urquell, best Czech beer - copyright Pilsner UrquellPrague is indeed a very touristic city and when you’re looking for a nice pub or bar to go to, you may want to avoid the typical “touristy pub”…

A nice place to enjoy the best beer in Prague

Even though “The Pub” might make you think that you ended up in some tourist bar, you may soon realise that this spot is where locals meet! There are several reasons why:
– this is a great place to enjoy the best Czech beer (as any Czech person would tell you): Pilsner!
– you often have your own tap on your table… such a fun and convenient way to get a couple of drinks with friends, without having to bother standing up and waiting at the bar!
– the price is more than reasonable for Pilsner beer (even in the centre) as you’ll often be paying approx. 40 czk for a pint, which is roughly €1.6

One advice: if you’re looking at going there with a lot of friends, show up early… the place gets crowded rather quickly and is very popular!

There are several “The Pub” places in town – to find out more, have a look at their website, http://www.thepub.cz/welcome/

And as they say in the Czech Republic… na zdraví! (cheers!)
