Meduzzy Restaurant near Ujezd
Prague 5 Malo Strana
251 510 557 tel
Open 11am to 11pm
Meduzzy is on the corner of Melnicka and Ujezd near two main tram stops of the 9, 12, 20 running north from Andel that stop on Ujezd and the 9,18, 22 that stop on Vitzena and Ujezd intersection after crossing the Legion Bridge from the National Theater. It's just off the center of the world.
Czech, French, Italian, Greek, Spanish foods are served with wine and beer list available.
Prices range from 100-400kc for main dish. Salads 135-200 kc and Czech Beer, yay!
The plates are large so there's no worry about a rumbling tummy afterwards. The lasagna melts with succument meat sauce and lovely mild cheese that melts in your mouth as it slides down in you belly. Like most neighborhood restaurants there is a large menu which gives the full lsiting of house specialties and a day lunch menu which is available on "budget" price. A lunch special costs about 100kc which is reasonable for large plate of satisfying food.
Fetuccini with Salmon is 167kc with fresh salmon from the local fish shop. Pepper Steak is 491kc. A large Tuna Salad is 167kc and the Czech special Fried Cheese is 119kc. The menu offers something for everyone. Pita bread with Chicken, Pork or Lamb runs between 180-200kc. Pilner Urquell is the beer on tap.
The restaurant lines the busy main street Ujezd which stretches north along the 22 tramway to Malostrana. To the south the street stretches to Novy Andel along the 9, 12, 20 tram lines, so the corner is one of the busiest corners in Prague, but the restaurant has relaxing atmosphere and is a good haven during sudden rainstorms or after a weary foot trip up and back from the Prague Castle. The tablecloths and décor are colorful, but the atmosphere calm and soothing. It's a good stop with friends to huddle in a corner and share gossip or sit and read a book out of the weather. The service is warm and friendly; the food fresh and plates large. In spring, summer and fall when weather is friendly, tables are set outside along the sidewalk. Just off the main footpath of Segways and the onslaught of tourist hordes, Meduzzy is an ideal rest stop on a visit to Prague.
