Visited the James Joyce a few times during a stay in Prague with friends and can thoroughly recommend. Super quick and efficient service each time we visited and the food was always good. Seems to attract locals an visitors alike.

Off the beaten path in Old Town but worth every step! Get a cold Guinness - okay, two - and they have great food - all at reasonable prices and a place you can get away from the huge crowds. Best service in Prague!

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful

of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
