Some legends connected to the game...Rudolph II, the King most famous for his architecture of Prague had over 20 tunnels from the Prague Castle under the River to the clock tower...your job is to find his secret Elixir potion of youth, make it and escape the torture chambers before he finds you!
"Yes at New Zealand, where I lived one year, they have many possums and kangaroos, yet they are not real kangaroos like in Australia." he says and I say that is my favorite animal. The possum! "Yes they are very cute." he says!
"The traditional Czech we have here would be Roasted Sirloin with creamy dumplings, perhaps or the Sauerkraut and Dumplings yet honestly I am not sure if the Goulash is real Czech...it could be Hungarian!" laughs Filip when I say I love the Goulash!
no say it isn't so Joe!
O and they have a lovely conceirge who is a jewel to find to plan that perfect wedding...
"Yes, I guess people are interested that movie stars come here such as John Malkovich, yet the most impressive for me is the fact that we have been open 3 and 1/2 years and we're #13 on Trip Advisor from 4,800 restaurants in Prague." Now that is impressive.
"Yes, and we have about 2,000 reviews from the 3 years we've been open. The tourists that find us are funny. They love the restaurant the minute they walk in they ooo and aaa, yet the Americans know Indian food and they know exactly what they want to order. They're loud too in their conversations and their laughter here.
The waiters always say, O we have Americans! And the other cultures are funny since the Russians order dessert first and a couple of beers perhaps! The Asians never know what to order and we take our time explaining the menu and the Spanish are the funniest! They take at least 5minutes to ask about the Indian food. They have no idea what to order!" he says.
"What I enjoy the most is the presentation of the highest authentic Indian food with the atmosphere of luxury to match." is his final answer of his perception of the most beautiful of all Indian restaurants I have ever seen. Hope you love the food as you gaze at the walls!

One of my new additions is the 7 vineyards from Argentina. It is named Clos de Los Suite and a blend of 7 vineyards and their knowledge...famous ones from the Bordeaux family, a prominent collection of these 7 families. Michel Rolland who is world reknown asked these 7 to come to South America, Argentina, and produce a wine with a vineyard made up of these 7 names. And they came. You know that, Argentina has space everywhere. And they thought lets plant some grapes and make a vineyard." Valery jokes a lot. "Seriously though Argentina has Space everywhere. Every soil is different and each wine around the world tastes different even with the same grape because of the soil. The French have a huge debate going on Grape or Ground?"

That is important to me." Martin says. He is a happy young person who is always smiling and always happy. Totally lively and alive that is Martin!
I of course tried the pink cupcakes and to a boutique bakery a little expensive yet worth it. Yummy. All the tourists flock to the main bakery which is on all of the tours around Prague. If you want a little quiet bakery try the one that his wife runs. I am trying that one to taste the drinks.Love to Prague and great sweets.

Our restaurant offers an extraordinary experience in Prague; in the interior, our guests can see contemporary paintings and graphic works of prominent Moravian painters (Joža Úprka, Antoš Frolka, etc.) and displays of hand made historical folk costumes from Western Bohemia across Eastern Slovakia which were professionally and sensitively restored by girls from Uherský Ostroh led by Mrs. D.

Ï am from England originally and it is important for me to have Fresh Fish and Chips...I respect the Czech and Prague community and only use fresh local products too...I like being a Czech!"
Check out the picture of Che that Gordan had painted on the wall...Isn't it great." is the first words that the new owner, Jonathan, greeted me with...the proud owner of O'Che's..."that is about 1 year now. Does Jonathan miss the IT Computer jobs that he is famous for? "No I love the nonstress of owning a pub...maybe another OÇhes in the future.
Meet the new owner of O'Che's, a cool Irish Cuban Pub...yes that is right i said Irish Cuban. I love Cuba since my father is Cuban and I love the spirit of that people and while, Che Guevara is from Argentina, he is a world figure in termans of being iknown as Fidel Castro's best friend during the Independance of Cuba. Here you can find tons of memorabilia along with the world famous Guiness Brand of Beer. The new owner is from ChelseaEngland, "Although I am a LIverpool fan. All of my family is for Chelsea except me! I love Liverpool When I am little my brother took me to my first game and I was mad. When I am mad I do the opposite of what I am supposed to do! So, I rooted for Liverpool and have been fan ever since." says Jonathan, the young owner of the Pub since the last 2 months. "Me and the boys came here at Christmas and we were all drinking with Gordan and I said O what the heck...I am buying O'Che's and I did!" he says. Last year talking to Gordan who had owned the pub 17 years, "When I tried to decide on a name for the Pub I found that Che is the biggest seller of prints in the entire world...that famous Black and Red photo of him. I named it O'Che's since the Spanish Che is the name of a friend a Pal and that is why I named it that. I added the O' to show a Irish Pub and the Che to show a Cuban pub...once in a while a person will come in and say O are you Communist and I say no I am not Communist but only a very few associate Che with Communism. He helped the poor people around the world that is why people associate with his image and ideals." y

Jonathan, the new owner, says, "I am keeping O'Che's exactly the way it is. I love the decorations of Gordan's and the pictures and all of it. It is a lot of people that come in and love O'Che's and try it for the first time since they see the Guiness sign. That is why I tried it the first time honestly. I saw the sign and just walked in. Guiness is known around the world for the best lager ever. And it is true. I ordered a new huge Guiness sign that is my contribution to O'Che's and it had to be made out of wood since the building is a historical building. I had great fun doing that." he says. "o and come tonight at 8pm and try the live band and dancing." Alright!
"What have I added? Let"s see...high brands such as Zacapa and Bulova. And now a top shelf of premium whiskeys...and cut the menu from 19 items to only 8 items. Yet we use only local Czech products now and fresh high quality. The fish and chips is fresh instead of this frozen stuff. Now people actually come back because of the food instead of only the drinking!"he jokes.
Jonathon having fun in his pub!
HERE IS THE BIG PARTY PLACE NAMED O'CHES..."Sometimes it is crazy in here for no apparent reason...such as when the Stag Girls come in...or one night a couple of nights ago a wedding from India came in and partied with us all night. Every guest eventually danced with the wedding party! Things like this happen all the time!"says Jonathon,. pictured below. "Has anything changed in the last year since I've owned it? Yes I have grey hair! "
At Corto Pizza some people like getting their picture taken and some only love the food! ´We are the first Italian Restaurant in Prague. As a matter of face when the communist regime was demolished, we were the first in the Czech Republic of Italian Restaurants to come into the country. People here loved it. We had ques 2 blocks. The food is the best and the Czech people came all the time. I myself is 1/2 Czech and 1/2 Croatia. Croatia had tons of Italian restaurants and so I was used to it. Then the big companies started coming into Prague and all the internationals of course came to eat here to. Now we have many competitors at Prague yet the people from the last 25 years remain loyal to the Corto. They tell friends who tell friends and they send us postcards from around the world. That is nice for me to know that when they come here to eat they love it and they remember it when they're away too.´ says the owner Renato! http://www.pizzeriacorto.cz/ Havelska 15, Phone 224 214 15 4
´We have wonderful food with great service. That is why people come. A friendly team that likes to have fun and get to know the guests. That is important. I´ve met people from around the world here from every nation and of course it is great to visit every country in the world without leaving the pizzeria!´ says Renato.
Here a guest is having a light lunch of the delicacies of the yummy Restaurant Corto.
The entrance to Corto is literally right in front of the mercatos which is about 150 meters from the famous Clock Tower....Great location!
´Prague used to be the city of mystery. And now it has evolved from the city of mystery after communism to the city of provincial hidden growth to the city of international recognition although that is a slower thing happening. We´ve yet to receive the international recognition of say Paris yet maybe that is a better idea here. We love the tourists and we love when they come to see the culture of Prague and of course try us yet we still like to be a little hidden too.´ the owner says laughing. ´And we do breakfasts too since we own a Bed and Breakfast Corto and my sons named Igor and David Apartments which are named after them! ´
When you meet the owners of La Piccola Perla, they are sitting at a table doing accounting work. I ask Mr. Tony from the Sopranos(he looks just like him!) if he is the "Accountant that pays for it all...like the famous song!" and he laughs and says yes. Mr. Vito talks about his food.
That is his favorite subject and he uses his hand gestures continuously to show his passion. "The parma cheese, the tortellini, the Italian wine...that is Italy. That is love. The Lamborghinis!"he exclaims as I say and the Lamborghinis is from his city of Bologna. "We look up Lamborghinis and see it is located at Via Modena ,12. I say that my mother's family comes from Modena. "Me? I prefer the Ferraris."he says.
Address: Perlová 412/1, 110 00 Praha 1-Staré Město
You know when I was introduced to one of the owners of the lovelz La Piccola Perle in Prague he reminded me of Tony from the Sopranos at 8am in the morning. When I came back at 10am to interiew him and his boss, Mr. Vito,I met a man that uses his facal expressions all the time to make you laugh and to use his hand gestures to amuse. ´I am a real Italian from Bologna,´ he says. ´And to be honest a real tortellini maker knows that every tortellini has 4 grams of stuffed prosciuttii and that is it.´ he insists and so of course I must find a tortellini picture! When I eat at the restaurant that night we laugh with tables next to us. A couple has come to the restaurant every two days the last years since finding it! They say that they moved to Prague from England and live a couple meters away. They love the food(mine is heavenly with shrimps and that dessert of Tiramisu.).
The waiter keeps saying that he is 27 and gives me a glass of "the best red wine in the house..."he gives me a huge portion and I somehow am able to drink all of it. However, the grappa that Mr. Soprano gives to me is a little too strong for me. Woah! I say and in about 16 minutes take 3 tiny tastes. "Aw it is only 48percent alcohol."He says. Trust me 48 percent is very strong~!
The Tiramisu of my invite here at La Piccola Perle is the most yummy dessert ever. The food is out of this world.
