Prague Scenic Restaurants – Bricks

Bricks (formerly Hergetova Cihelna)

If you are coming from the Old Town across Charles Bridge you’ll see Bricks on the far side on the right behind the anti-flood wall. Its a large restaurant with more than 300 places of which 170 are outside plus another external called the “boathouse” which has comfortable seating for 50 plus a upstairs lounge/cafe for another 90. Inside is fine with both elegant and more casual areas but its the outside terrace that I direct you to. An absolute must to reserve outside in the summer whether for lunch or dinner. They’ll have the space heaters out if its a bit chilly but it’s such a great position right on the riverside with spectacular views of the Charles Bridge and the river Vltava. If you are wondering about the name, it’s because the area was formerly a brickyard.

The Food

Have to consign this to “International Cuisine” because of the sheer coverage of cuisines from around the world. Part Italian, part Asian, part Mediterranean, part burgers/steaks so no specialities to recommend but a wide-ranging menu will see that everybody will find something at Bricks. The business plan is “location first, nice menu second” so on my list for a nice place to go for the scenic aspect but there is better food to be had in the city.

My Favourite: At the time of writing it was Risotto Nero (grilled octopus with chilli-tomato) and the chocolate cake.
