Sometimes you just want to get away from Prague and go for a ride, to eat well and let your kids run around a bit. The perfect place for this is just 20 km away from Prague in the direction of Plzen and is called Restaurant “Ve Stoleti” (at Century). It was my hubby’s birthday, so a good lunch was in order, and we felt like driving somewhere where it was nice and green.
The restaurant is stylish with lots of space inside and garden seats are around small pond with fish. It is refreshing and your kids can safely run around because it is a closed complex. The inside attic will hide you from rain.
In general, driving in the direction of Pilsen (Plzen) can really take you away from city life and let you enjoy a bit of the countryside. Usually, we stop at this restaurant if we drive to Kartlstejn or Krivoklat Castles, which are not far from there. This area has many woods where you can go mushroom picking or bike riding.
All of it starts around the highway A5 right after Metropole Zlicin and IKEA in Prague 5. The area I am recommending is called Berounsko, in which the town called Beroun, has in the past few years, became a very popular town to live in.
The restaurant itself has an outdoor play area with a trampoline, sandpit, swings and other attractions. It is efficient and safe and our boys had a great time there.
The inside of the restaurant is very spacious and traditional. Here, I can image hosting a birthday party or wedding. You can book the entire restaurant or any part of the restaurant of your choice to organise family celebrations, wedding receptions and business meetings. The grill lounge can host a private party of up to 24 people. The restaurant’s capacity of 50 seats provides an original venue for wedding feasts, receptions or banquets. The 20-seat attic is a perfect place for a romantic dinner. The patio at the garden pond is a favourite relaxation area, particularly in summer. There are 70 seats on the terrace with a view of the playground. So, quite a few people can be accommodated here all at the one time.
You can easily choose from the menu because it is in English and with a wide choice of dishes.
