While visiting Prague, you’ll probably hear about the restaurant Eska! It was recommended to us by several people, and after reading online reviews, we made reservations and set off to have a late dinner.
Eska’s objective is ‘to define the old with the new.’ Here is my experience dining at Eska!
– About –
Eska is a restaurant and bakery located in the Karlin neighborhood of Prague. It’s part of the Ambiente group which owns many restaurants throughout Prague, including some of my favorites like Lokal and Cafe Savoy, as well as two Michelin star La Degustation.
Eska was awarded the Michelin Bib Gourmand, an honor that highlights restaurants that serve high quality food at a reasonable price. Perfect for those looking to eat delicious food without breaking the bank!
– The Food –
We opted for the Chef’s Selection tasting menu — and were so happy we did! We were served five family style courses selected by the chef. Each course was expertly prepared… and quickly finished by us!
The food focuses on ‘old’ Czech favorites with a modern flair.
Traditional techniques like fire-roasting and fermenting are used with creative flavor combinations. I loved the strong focus on vegetables — while not a vegetarian restaurant (and plenty of options for meat lovers!), the menu moves vegetables towards the forefront.
– The Ambiance –
The restaurant is located in a converted fabric factory which gives it a hip, industrial vibe. The first floor is comprised of an open kitchen, bakery and outdoor seating, while the upstairs floor is the dining room. The exposed brick and pipework make for a modern yet casual setting.
