You’ll find that each of the medieval style restaurants recommended here offers a similar medieval experience . . . a banquet with a medieval food menu, your choice of beer and wine, and authentic medieval music. We thought the medieval fortune teller was a highlight among the sword fights, jugglers, and other medieval entertainment at U Pavouka in Prague.

Your medieval feast menu will offer you a choice among several entrees. The medieval times dress code is casual.

Book this Prague Medieval Dinner with Unlimited Drinks – Go directly to the restaurant via your own transport to the restaurant where a 3-course dinner or 5-course meal with unlimited beer, wine or soft drinks and live medieval show awaits.

U Pavouka Medieval Tavern (The Spider) – Not far from Old Town Square is a massive historic medieval restaurant Prague is famous for. Advanced tickets are required for their medieval dinner experience, so be sure to make a reservation. Check out TripAdvisor ReviewsGo online to select from several medieval dining experiences.

Once inside the underground tavern, you will instantly be immersed in sights, sounds and smells that feel centuries old. The heavy wooden tables and chairs lend credence along with the ropes and nets that swoop overhead, resting on twisted beams. All of the actors are dressed in period costume and mingle with diners throughout the medieval banquet, which is a generous 5-course dinner that includes food and unlimited drinks. We chose a grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes and grilled whole trout with herbs and butter.

While you dine you can enjoy the show that plays throughout the entire affair. You’ll see exotic belly dancers who use live snakes and swords as props, jugglers, and swashbuckling comedians all dressed in period costume, complemented by authentic music played by expert medieval musicians and drummers.

The processional was one of our favorite parts of the evening where we got a closer look at the musical instruments (and the beautiful dancers). We also quite enjoyed the ravishing medieval wench who wandered from table to table telling fortunes. She was quite accurate in her assessments, too.

Be ready for an evening of fun and merriment at this medieval tavern Prague Old Town location. Never did we imagine ourselves enjoying a restaurant which is called “The Spider,” but we really liked everything about this experience, even if it was touristy.

Note: Consider a journey from Madrid to Prague, where you’ll enjoy iconic and important sights in a curated itinerary designed to be the trip of a lifetime.

U Sedmi Svabu

This is a historical tavern located in the Castle district. The traditional medieval dinner menu is accompanied by entertainment comprised of musicians, dancers, a swordsman or two, and fire show. Dining options from the regular menu here will easily satisfy your appetite, ranging from a warm and cold starter selection to smoked duck and turkey breast and traditional Czech options such as goulash, bohemian dumplings, pickled cabbage and pork knuckle. Choose a traditional dessert: Slavic honey cake, which is a homemade cake that has dried fruits, nuts, almonds and whipped cream; or fruit dumplings sprinkled with sugar and grated cheese, “decanted with drawn butter.”

Their Friday and Saturday night feast price includes unlimited drinks (beer, wine and soft drinks) along with a 2.5 hour medieval performance.

Tavern Brabant

This medieval themed restaurant really goes all out to create an authentic medieval bar and tavern in Prague. Skulls hang from above and hay covers the floor in the medieval bar. While the food is probably not historically authentic, Czech food is generously filling, so don’t expect to eat a light meal. This is a medieval banquet at its finest. You certainly won’t leave hungry with all of the traditional Czech offerings that are touched with medieval restaurant flair. The roasted pork, the Bock beer, and the goulash are traditionally flavored.

This restaurant proves that dinner in a medieval tavern in Prague doesn’t have to be kitschy or touristy. The focus is all about dining in an authentic setting. So if you are looking for a 5-course medieval dining experience that offers great food without all of the entertainment distractions, this would probably be the perfect place for you. Check TripAdvisor Reviews.

A visit to a medieval-style tavern only assures you one thing . . . While you may only want to do it once, it’s a great night with lots of fun to make a unique and memorable experience!

Bula Deb! This is historically-based fantasy, lighthearted and lots of fun. Definitely not highbrow and sometimes that's just what we need.

Bula Dana! We loved Prague, too. One of our favorite cities. This evening was great fun - just the thing to take the edge off a cold day filled with more serious sightseeing.
