Come to Prague to enjoy some of its exquisite gastronomy. The most recent edition of the Michelin Main Cities Guide has awarded two restaurants in the Czech capital a Michelin star each. This is the first time ever that Czech chefs have secured this prestigious award. Prague has also increased the number of BiB Gourmand restaurants, a label signifying good quality food for reasonable prices.

The Michelin star has been awarded to the Alcron Restaurant lead by Chef Roman Paulus and restaurant La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise headed by Chef Oldrich Sahajdak. Both restaurants offer tasting menus. Alcron is famous for its fish and seafood specialities and restaurant La Degustation Bohême Bourgeoise introduces traditional Czech cuisine using recipes from the late 19th century.

Gourmets and lovers of fine dining will appreciate that the number of top quality restaurants in Prague is constantly growing. Two Prague restaurants Sansho and Monastery have recently acquired the label of BiB Gourmand. They will complement restaurants SaSaZu, Le Terroir, Aromi and Divinis which managed to retain the status awarded to them last year.
