I think you already know one thing about us for sure, we love eating out and searching for something new and different. Last Monday, we were floating around Malá Strana and hunger struck. There are many restaurants in Malá Strana, but we were looking for something unique. Luka Lu, a Yugoslavian restaurant, was exactly what we were after.

If you want to have a break from the typical Czech dumplings, pork, or heavy stews, head to Luka Lu. This restaurant has very joyful atmosphere created by a quirky, colorful interior with lot of Balkan and Mediterranean elements. Luka lu is full of brightly colored kitsch – you can see real creativity here.

We came in during the lunchtime rush, so it is no wonder that the restaurant was packed and a bit noisy. In spite of it being the busiest time of the day, we were served almost immediately. The waiter started us out with homemade bread, which was warm and crunchy. With it came a soft cheese that we liked a lot. For the main course, we had the roasted peppers stuffed with cheese and seafood salad. The salad was truly outstanding, full of mussels, shrimp, octopus and calamari. All the seafood was fresh, perfectly cooked and flavoured with olive oil and fresh, chopped basil. As we ordered from lunch menu, the prices were very fair (120 – 150CZK for main course including free coffee).

Final note from us: If you find yourself wandering from the Charles Bridge to Petřín stop by at this authentic Mediterranean restaurant. Delicious food and great service is what you will get there.
