""free appetizers"" Prague Tourist Trap Tip by doug48

Prague Tourist Traps: 298 reviews and 180 photos

many of the restaurants in the tourist areas of prague try the appetizer trick on unsuspecting tourists. thanks to VT i was aware of this scam. a friend of mine and i visited a restaurant in the little quarter and there was a small bowl of peanuts on the table. when we sat down. my friend reached for a peanut, i told her that we would have to pay for them. i asked the waiter to remove them. he came back with two small plates of cheese and tomatoes which i waved away. i could tell he was annoyed with my refusal. i checked the menu and peanuts were 50 crowns and the cheese and tomatoes were 75 crowns. what a ripoff ! if you want free appetizers go to milan italy, bars there basically throw appetizers at you and don't charge you a penny !
