Hlavni Mesto Praha Tourist Traps: 3 reviews and 3 photos
Desperate for food nearby our hotel, we unwittingly step into what seemed like a friendly cafe for a bite. Had a so-so meal with a couple of beers then asked for the check. Came out to about two and a half times what it ought to have been. Lots of hidden extras. The waitress was quick to "explain" the bill (you could tell she'd had a lot of practice doing this) and give us the standard "I only work here, don't blame me" line--in very good English, I might add.
Unique Suggestions: Don't go, period! It's near the Castle.
Fun Alternatives: Don't give this restaurant your business! There are plenty of other restaurants that won't rip you off (well at least not too much--all touristy places tend to "rip-off" a least a little. A good rule of thumb is to judge the restaurant by the beer prices. 25Kc or less for 50cl (500ml) of Czech beer and the food prices will also be fairly reasonable. More than 30Kc for the same amount and you'll probably be ripped-off for the food as well. But, of course, it's all relative. Even about 50 or 60Kc for 50cl of beer is only about 2 bucks U.S. Can you live with this?
