“U Balbínů” Restaurant

U Balbinu Restaurant Prague From Tripadvisor.com U Balbinu Restaurant reviews: “Lovely meal“: We stopped on the street to look at the menu for this restaurant, and a gentleman came over to us to tell us he lived nearby and really recommended the restaurant. We were looking for somewhere not too touristy so we went inside and we were glad we did. There was a huge choice of traditional Czech food and everything was reasonably priced.
