I was fortunate to learn about a traditional Czech restaurant just on the outskirts of Prague from friends who had been there a few times; the owner even seemed to recognize him as we walked in. Despite the fact that the restaurant is not a haunt for tourists (am pretty sure we were the only ones), some of the room designs had the wild west written all over them. Zlaty Dul is located on Plzenska 173, Kavalirka in Prague’s 5th district, so a bit of a distance from the center of town. (well worth the drive or cab ride).

The building is a former gold mine, the first gold mine in Prague in fact, each room feeling like a well-decorated stylish cave, with its own unique character. Take a look at some of the shots I took on my iPhone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 While you’re hanging out in this crazy, creative, eclectic building set on two floors (the lower half feeling more like a cave or a dungeon – a funky one that is), the menu doesn’t disappoint. The wait staff don’t know a helluva lot of English so a strong recommendation if you have an iPhone is to download the Czech English translator (I think it’s around 2.99) but well worth it when you’re stuck in a bind and need to get across that you’re lactose tolerant, allergic to nuts or want the best beer on the menu.
