Prague is known for its heavy traditional dishes and beer. Food in the Czech Republic was influenced by its surrounding countries such as Germany, Austria, and Hungary. Typically, restaurants have menus in English, although you might have to ask to see it. If you are feeling adventurous and want to find a "locals restaurant" then turn down a side street and walk away from the touristy areas. Most restaurants are easy to spot because of their large glowing signs which states the type of beer they serve. When you dine in Prague, the usual tip rate is between 10-15%. Restaurants in Prague have not been known for their service dating back to when the country was still under the Communist Regime. Then, it did not matter how the service was because waiters and waitresses would not be able to earn any extra money and therefore did not feel the need to be as attentive to customers.
