Prague VKolkovne (Kolkovne) Restaurant-Well Worth the Visit
We knew it was catty-corner to the large Spanish Synagogue, only outside on the awning it's named Vkolkovne, not Kolkovna. There are seats outside. Inside there's mostly tourists and some locals alike, a good sign. It was separately recommended, by three different Czechs who favor it as a friendly spot with authentic good food. (It's prices are "pricier" to them than prices at their local favorite restaurants, which are not near Old Town or other touristic spots.) For travelers/tourists, it's very good bang for the buck. Eat outdoors, smoke in the quaint long main area, or go smoking free downstairs, past the door to the restrooms.
Many people liked the Traditional Platter-duck, sparrow, smoked meat and beer sausage for 350 kr. (19,2 koruna to $1) The rich soup served in a bread bowl is popular among locals.
Highly recommended for traditional food that locals highly rate as good and authentic.
