Konirna Restaurant is a traditional Czech restaurant set on a small square in the heart of the Lesser Town (Malá Strana)
area of Prague, just a few minutes walk from Charles Bridge
The Konirna Restaurant building has a tradition of hospitality dating back to 1776. A recent restoration project has refreshed the restaurant, and enhanced the charm and character of both the building and the setting.
The main restaurant is divided into reasonably small, cosy rooms, plus there is a Medieval cellar for larger groups.
Konirna offers both classic Czech cuisine and some International favourites, with meals ranging from beef sirloin and rib-eye steak to a delicious knuckle of lamb in black beer. There is wild boar, leg of duck and a very interesting take on goulash, with smoked sausages and bacon. There is also fresh fish from the Czech rivers and lakes.
Starters present some nice local soups along with spicy tiger prawns, trout and a deer and wild boar pâté.
While the food is very reasonable, drinks are slightly over-priced compared to other restaurants we list at this level. However, there is a good selection of Czech and International wines.
From April to October Konirna opens a terrace at the front of the restaurant. This looks out on a small, quaint square. As this is hidden away from the main tourist route, it is easy to sit for hours enjoying the tranquillity and old world atmosphere of this part of Prague.
Konirna is a good classic, traditional Czech restaurant.
While Konirna has the feeling of a small, intimate restaurant, it has so many rooms and cellars that it can in fact accommodate large groups. This is an ideal restaurant for groups of all ages. Advance reservations are essential.
