Had Paella here, it took around 35 minutes for them to cook it. I must say it was worth waiting for it. Delicious. Would love to come back to Prague just to have Paella from here again😘 Keep it up!!

We came across this Spanish Tapas restaurant on the way back from a very long walk around the park and monastery and decided it was time for a late lunch (around 2.00pm). We were warmly greeted and the choice of food was fantastic as there was not too much meaning that it will be freshly cooked. We were not disappointed... More

An absolutely wonderful find in the heart of Prague. This jewel is 2 min away from Charles Bridge, in Mala Strana. Each and every meal I've had at El Centro has always been as if I am eating a homemade meal -- as the owners take care to deliver their best to each customer as if they were guests at... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
