Sunday Family Brunch at Zinc, Prague 1

Family Brunches on 01 November 2009 by Karen (8 comments)

This is a newcomer to the Prague Brunch scene. Every Sunday from noon till 4pm, Zinc Restaurant at the Hilton Prague Old Town Hotel, holds a family orientated brunch. What sets it apart from other brunches, is the fact that children up to the age of 10 years get all that they can eat and drink for free. You also receive complimentary parking from noon until 3pm.

The back end of the lobby (with lots of natural light streaming in), is set up as a kids’ play area with a baby sitter and plenty of toys for little kids. There is even a Wii console for the older ones, so after his meal, Robbie was able to have a mini ‘work-out’ playing tennis and baseball! Live jazz music plays relaxing tunes for the duration of the brunch.

For 990 CZK per person you get a welcome drink, local wine, beer and all soft drinks (and all the food that you can eat, of course!). The food is extremely fresh and set up in buffet style, so you pick and choose what you like. Some of the Cold Starters and Salads include Beetroot, Smoked Salmon, Mixed Bean, Coleslaw, Potato, Onion and Cheddar Cheese Salad. The Hot Buffet and Side Dishes include favourites such as traditional English Fish Pie, Fried Cod in Beer Batter and Mushy Peas, Yorkshire Pudding, and Glazed Carrot and Turnip Garlic and Rosemary Roast Potatoes.

There is also a ‘live’ Roast Station, where a chef will cut up and serve juicy slices of meat for you including Salt Baked Leg of Lamb, Roast Prime Rib of Beef and Lemon and Thyme Roast Chicken. This is an absolute must for meat lovers. My hubby was certainly in Seventh Heaven here…

My favourite section is the so-called Sweet Corner. Actually, I started my meal with the Oxford Bread and Butter Pudding with Brandy Custard which was absolutely delectable! There is also Sticky Toffee Pudding with warm Butter Scotch Sauce, Fruit and Sherry Trifle, Rhubarb Fools, Lemon Meringue Pie along with Freshly Baked Scones, Clotted Cream and Jam – basically enough to keep you going for the whole afternoon.

I got so caught up in talking about satisfying my cravings, that I completely forgot about the kids! They get their own little buffet with a variety of foods to choose from. This includes spaghetti with meatballs, sausage rolls, salads, chicken drum sticks and fish and chips (the waiting staff will make up fresh portions for you upon request).

I find Sunday Brunch at Zinc very relaxing and unwinding. Since the children’s play area is not directly connected to the restaurant, once the kids finish eating, one gets a greater sense of space to try out more dishes, while they play and are looked after by a baby sitter. The room is beautifully decorated in art deco style and the set up of the tables and chairs along with the amazing jazz band playing for you live, does not want to make you want to leave sooner than you have to. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon,  especially during the winter months.

If you enjoy fine dining, then try out Zinc in the evening sometime. The restaurants’s Executive Chef Ari Munandar, is a whiz at whipping up amazing fusion (Asian/European) cuisine such as Crispy Calamari with Spiced Salt and Chilli, Roasted Cashew Nuts and Green Mango Salad or Corn Fed Spring Chicken with Balinese Spices.

    I have just come back from brunch at the Hilton and it was amazing! The food was great especially as a Brit missing a good Sunday roast. I went with a friend so we had 3 children aged 21months, 4 and 7 and they were all well entertained for 3 hours while the adults enjoyed a stress free lunch. I was a bit nervous at 1st that the kids would make straight for the front door as the kids corner is in the lobby but the babysitters were very attentive and kept a close eye on all of them. Their own website doesnt really do it justice so thanks for the great report which prompted me to give it a go.

    I also went to ZINC for lunch recently and have to say that my experience was similar to Nikki’s. The kids ate well and then played for ages at the kids’ corner. The buffet now also includes fresh sea food and the most amazing curry that I’ve ever had in Prague. The food is of a very high standard and great value to boot. Definitely one of the best Sunday brunches in Prague at the moment.

    Excellent, I was in Zinc last week after three months as originally, I was not too impressed, so I said I will give them one more chance. As I am out for brunches quite often, I think this is far the best one in terms of food offerings, all the sushi and seafood which is part of the standard buffet was amazing, some items with a touch of Asia are also a nice add on. Space for kids is very generous, it is part of the lobby which is converted into a playground with supervision, toys and Nintedo console games for bigger kids. Very good value for money, with free parking and all drinks and a kids buffet, at this moment it is my favourite in Prague.

    Thanks for your comment Monika. You’ve whetted my appetite to go back again very soon!

    P.S. Karen, how much did you pay per person???

  • Karen on 26 May 2010 @ 03:14 PM

    It was about 995 CZK including all food, house wine, soft drinks etc plus parking. Kids under the age of 12 eat for free. I think it’s the best valued brunch in Prague and the quality of the food on offer is outstanding.
