Daylight robbery at Cafe Bar Trinity -Prague

This cafe offers on the menu a small or large capuccino.

When waiter asked which one we wanted we said the 'normal' capuccino! When the bill came the price was €15.20 (380 KC).

When I asked which was the large cappucino I was shown the same small cup but was told that there will be a double dose of coffee!!! Rip Rip Off... The cafe is situated at the bottom of Wenscesles Square before you head on to the Old Town its at a junction to the left opposite H & M. Stay Away. Two cappucinos at beautiful Cafe Obecni dum only cost us €6.30 (158KC)!!!!

We had the misfortune to visit this cafe during our stay. In fact we kept the receipt as a reminder of our unhappy experience. They charged us 380kc for 2 large cokes! what a rip off!

The waiter was very crafty at coming to our table immediately before we could even open the menu and we were stupid enough to fall for it, so two cokes were ordered without us looking at the price. We sat there ages wanting to get our moneys worth. It was interesting watching him make the same move on the unsuspecting tourists. The table next to ours was charged nearly 800kc the coloured drained from the poor lady's face.

Please avoid this cafe bar you have been warned...

LOL that's good - 'brutally expensive' - also 'lacking just a little user-friendliness' - master of understatement :)

I'm seeing far too many of these reports of bad restaurant experiences in Prague. It's very disappointing. Seriously, I am saddened.

I understand how you feel.

Myself personally I'm happy to know these rip-off business so that I 'm ready NOT to spend money there, so famous Mystic Café, Trinity Café and what the name of the Pizza place in Mala Strana, near Bohemian Bagles?

The places I have been to so far, modest to moderately priced places, I have neve had problems so far and Prague for me still is a place where I can eat quite inexpensively, much less than western European capital cities.

The business is owned by Czechs, so can't blame it on russian mafia - it always looked very inviting with all those red blankets. Maybe someone should visit and take the info on prices.

I might do it next month, any contributions welcome :)
