I’d been recommended Red Pif before the trip and I was seriously impressed by the healthy, modern dishes and Michelin-star quality, not something I expected in Prague. The staff were also super friendly and attentive, although this might have been because we were the only ones in the restaurant! Slightly unnerving, but perhaps it was because it was January! I would recommend the perch, butternut squash, buckwheat, kolhrabi and blood orange for mains, and the pineapple, coconut, avocado and watercress for pudding.

We stayed at Hotel U Prince, which is 100% the best place to stay in Prague. It’s quite expensive but totally worth it and great value for money. The decor is very ornate but cosy, and the staff are extremely helpful. It’s situated right on the main square opposite the Astronomical Clock and just by Charles Bridge, two of Prague’s main attractions. It also has a famous roof-top restaurant, which is worth a visit just for the view.

Black Angles Bar was situated in the basement of our hotel and was truly spectacular. Designed in the style of a prohibition ear speakeasy, it had a stone vaulted interior and a Gothic design. Not to mention the phantom piano player (who we never found!) and killer cocktails. The only drawback is that you’re not allowed to take pictures!

On our last day we found this lovely cosy cafe, whilst hiding from the snow. Perfect for lunch we had homemade soup and fresh bread, sat on quirky sofas and armchairs. Their brunch menu looked delicious too, if only we’d had another day!
