Gluten Free Prague

Czech Republic, Prague Guide (B): Gluten Free Prague

In the city where beer is cheaper than water, what is a gluten free girl to do? Long story short, I ate well in Prague, but it wasn’t without effort. Gluten free Prague is possible and I’m going to tell you how to find it!

Unlike other cities I’ve visited (such as Marrakech), you can’t just pop into any restaurant and rely on the menu’s naturally gluten free options. They don’t exist! The traditional Czech dishes revolve around beer, dumplings, and meat that’s either fried or swimming in an ale-infused, flour-thickened sauce. You’ll be hard pressed finding a salad in Prague.

So if you’re gluten free and going to Prague, you’ll need a plan and I’m here to help! Below I’ll tell you the best gluten free Prague options for traditional Czech food, non-Czech food, cafés and bakeries, and miscellaneous advice/what NOT to do.

On second thought maybe I shouldn’t have put this first as you could go to Prague and ONLY eat here the whole time. This is the #1 gluten free Prague restaurant that anyone on a gluten free diet NEEDS to go to! It’s a traditional establishment that offers a normal menu as well as a gluten free menu, and pretty much everything on the normal menu is available gluten free! This includes dumplings, two types of beer, all of the meat sauces, schnitzel, apple strudel, pancakes, and more. We ate here twice and I would 100% recommend to anyone! It’s also non-smoking, and the bartender was really interesting to talk to, both positives in my book! (Just make sure you go to the Svejk U Karla one and not the other Svejk as it doesn’t have a GF menu!) ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
