Prague Scenic Restaurants
If you are coming from the Old Town across Charles Bridge you’ll see Hergetova Cihelna on the far side on the right with 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. Read more and/or make a reservation at Hergetova Cihelna.
Terasa U Zlate Studne
The restaurant is located at the top of a 16th Century building but inside is quite modern and takes advantage of the view with large windows and a large outside terrace used when possible. The decor is bright even allowing for the dark flooring and as a narrow room its quite cosy with space for 26 people (increases to 40 if configured for a group). The large outside terrace seats 40 comfortably. Each will have a wonderful view but tables next to the railings giving an unobstructed city and rooftop views are the most sought after.

Valoria (formerly Cowboys)
On entering from Nerudova you’ll find yourself in the main restaurant area. Valoria is a smart “international” restaurant with a fairly small but delicious menu. The reason its primarily in the scenic section is that you go upstairs out onto the main terrace which has an assortment of tables and armchairs. When reserving a table you also have the option of a spot on the covered raised terraces which have good views and as they are covered, more privacy from the overlooking crowds.
