Location: Calvera Restaurant (Click here for map)
Last night, we located what is perhaps the worst Mexican restaurant in the world... well, at least in Prague. I pass the Calvera Bar & Restaurant just about every day on my way to and from work, and curiosity finally got the best of me. It looks like one of those places that might be a hidden gem - one of those "hole in the wall" restaurants that you take your friends to to impress them with your insider knowledge of Prague. So - with high hopes, and tummies yearning for good salsa, we stepped under the faux stone archway decorated with skulls, and found a table by the bar.
Prague in the springtime is a magical place... all over town, tables are appearing on sidewalks, people are lounging on blankets in the parks, and trees are blooming. After a walking tour through the back alleys of Mala Strana, we climbed the hill to the imposing Strathov Monestery. The BellaVista Restaurant definitely lives up to its' name -- Beautiful View. The panorama view of Prague at twilight was ...bella! Gelatto and cappuccinos were ... buono! The price was... well, let's just say we paid for the view!
