Two minutes from the Old Town square but tucked away on a side street this place has everything - a restaurant, a wine bar, a café and a food shop.
On winter evenings it’s a lovely place to go with friends for wine of varying prices but consistently good quality. Many are available by the glass. During the summer, sit in the peaceful courtyard at the back of the restaurant for al fresco dining.
The evening menu is very good but the real bonus is the daily lunch menu - choose between two and three courses, with or without wine, and you will have change from 200CZK.
Expect European cuisine with a twist of Czech including duck, rabbit and dumplings.
Independent wine importers and retailers Vera and Robert certainly know their stuff when it comes to vino, and when it comes to entertaining their guests. During the week this wonderfully cosy yet very modern wine bar is frequented by office workers (Karlin, where Roberts is situated is a burgeoning business district). However, on Friday evenings and weekends Roberts is also open to locals seeking (high) quality wine at affordable prices. Roberts offers a very wide range of wines, really tasty nibbles to accompanying them (the best pecorino romano I've had in Prague, or elsewhere), friendly and knowledgeable service and an in-bar wine shop. Oh, and very comfy sofas that make a quick visit utterly impossible.
Book a table ahead as Roberts often closes at the weekend (but is very happy to stay open for small groups).
While Prague is overwhelmingly known for its beer halls and charming pubs, the city also bears testament to the Czech Republic's burgeoning wine culture. One of my favorite places is the Vinicni Altan winery, an intricately trellised wine bar and terrace hidden in the Havlickovy sady park and adjacent to the recently renovated Grobovka chateau. The winery sits perched atop vineyards that date to the time of Charles IV (14th century), and offers a range of domestic Bohemian and Moravian wines as well as regional ones, many for as little as GBP 5 a litre - making it the perfect place to while away an afternoon soaking up the sun and looking out over the southside cityscape. Altan also hosts tastings and special events about once a month, and has a range of mouthwatering sundaes and cheeseplates to complement the varietals.
