In such a big city the number of restaurants is naturally enormous, ranging from the very famous restaurants to the less expensive trattorie or pizzerie. Whether you are looking to enjoy classical Czech food, regional specialities or international cuisine, Ostrava has what you are looking for.
The main street for wining, dining and having a great time is Stodolní Street, in the heart of the city. It boasts over 70 bars and restaurants in an area covering just a few blocks. Other dining establishments with cuisine from around the world dot the city. Fast food restaurants are concentrated in the centre and in the city´s shopping malls.
The city´s growing collection of wine shops mean that Ostrava can provide aficionados with the best wines from Moravia, Europe and the rest of the world. Ostrava´s coffee shops are a great way to start the morning, its tea-rooms are pleasant way to relax after a hard day´s work.
And a visit to the region would not be complete without a pint of the local beer, “Ostravar”, which has been brewed in the city since way back in 1897.
