If you prefer mussels to oysters, head to Pařížská Street. Alongside luxury shops, there's also a Belgian restaurant called Les Moules, probably the most famous “mussel spot” in Prague. Proof of this is the fact that it holds the Best Mussel in Prague award. Every day they prepare 12 kinds of fresh mussels, which they import from Denmark (by the way - they can be on your plate just 12 hours after being caught!) and if you think that a classic portion of mussels is not enough, you can also enjoy unlimited consumption here. Supposedly, 1500 kg of mussels are consumed in Les Moules every month. Proof of quality, isn't it? Of course, the offer is not limited to mussels, the menu is varied and the Belgian beers even more so. As for service, it depends on who you happen to bump into. But the overall experience matches the location - it's simply luxurious!

Fresh mussels are supplied there three times a week and in addition to mussels, oysters and other delicacies from the sea, you will also find dishes prepared according to traditional Belgian recipes on the menu. An interesting feature is the pairing of dishes with exclusive Belgian beer, of which there are over 50 varieties. Beer with mussels? Or even with a sweet dessert? Why not! Just choose the right one, which the helpful staff will be happy to help you with. Visitors with small children will appreciate the children's corner with professional babysitting, and children are generally welcome there, which - in higher-level restaurants - is quite exceptional. So whether you're a lover of mussels, waffles, beer or even as a parent you want to enjoy a meal in peace for once and are wondering where to go - the answer is Bruxx.

You walk into the restaurant, choose what you fancy from a counter full of fresh fish and seafood, and the staff will prepare your meal right in front of your eyes immediately. Just a nice idea? Not at all! That's exactly how it works at Blue Fjord, a fish restaurant in Prague and fishmonger in one. The menu is really wide, with fresh fish delivered several times a day from all over the world. What we must mention is the excellent staff, who really know everything about seafood and can help with the selection even for those who are not very familiar with the “gifts of the sea”. The prices here are fair and the experience? Even better. The only minor drawback may be the open kitchen, which means that in addition to a satisfied stomach, you may leave with a bit of fishy odor on your clothes. However, even if you're not a big fish fan, this place - with an interior reminiscent of a fast food bistro at first glance, but with top-notch quality - would be worth a visit even just to peek in thanks to the uniqueness of the concept. Besides, of course, you can buy and prepare anything from the fish assortment at home.

Italy, tradition, quality, freshness, local ingredients, simplicity and authenticity - all wrapped up in a fine dining concept. This is how one could describe the Aromi restaurant, which ranks among Prague's culinary top. The proof is the many international awards Aromi boasts, including the Bib Gourmand label in the famous Michelin Guide. Fish and seafood, served raw (crudi) and cooked, are the main features of the menu. A luxurious establishment also demands professional service, and you'll certainly get that here. Do you like to look under the chefs' hands? Then you'll be pleased with the large open kitchen. The restaurant also has a bistro where you can have breakfast, coffee or even a quick lunch. In the summer, you can make your dining experience more enjoyable by sitting on the terrace. And if one authentic Italian experience isn't enough, stop by sister restaurant La Finestra in Cucina.
