Hotel and Dinner

When we were in Prague we stayed at Ventana Hotel Prague. It is one of the 2008 travelers choice hotel on trip advisor. It was right off of Old Town Square behind the Tyn Church.
The only problem we had was trying to find the hotel that was right in front of our face.  We were standing right in front of the store looking for our hotel.  Oh did we feel like dumb tourists.  We were just thankful we didn't ask where it was.

Friday night we visited a restaurant recommended by the Hotel. It was a typical Czech cuisine restaurant called Restaurant Zvonice. The restaurant is in a bell tower with the authentic interior of the Gothic belfry with the original bell St. Maria from 1518.

The bell from 1518

We again had a problem finding the restaurant when it was right in front of us. The guy said we could not miss the tower with flags on it. Oh but we did. That was our theme for the night-where is...Oh that right just look up. 
The side we saw walking up-no door or lights
The other side-with a door and lights
Us at Zvonice Restaurant-look at how nice the menu, it is all leather

If you are ever in Prague I do recommend this restaurant.

My dinner - chicken with au gratin potatoes
Joe's wild boar steak - not sure why it is underlining
Joe's Desert-pancake with blueberries
I would have shown you the scallops for the entree but they were to yummy looking I just had to eat them.

Yum! I was in Prague during the week Tchechoslovakia split into two countries. Prague was gorgeous and the beer was good but the food uniformally beige and stodgy. Obviously I need to make a return visit!

I was scared the food was going to be like German food, and there was alot of goulosh on menus. I did manage to find some food to eat. Joe loved his boar.
