Festival to showcase Czech Republic's top restaurants
9 Dec 2011

Gastronomes considering a trip to the Czech Republic next year can time their visit to coincide with a major event showcasing some of the nation's best culinary offerings.

The Grand Restaurant Festival will take place in Prague and several of the country's regions, including Central Bohemia, South Moravia and Karlovy Vary, from 15 January to 15 February 2012.

Visitors will have the opportunity to sample unique dishes at reduced prices at a range of high-end eateries, many of which are highly rated in Maurer's Restaurant Guide, the Czech equivalent of the prestigious Michelin Guide.

One of the most popular aspects of the 2011 festival, the Yummy Bus, will be returning next year to offer tours visiting selected restaurants in Prague for tasting sessions and meetings with chefs.

Pavel Maurer, publisher of Maurer's Restaurant Guide and founder of the event, said: 'The festival is an ideal opportunity for anyone interested in outstanding cuisine to visit the best restaurants in the country while paying token prices.'
