Our Story

We're cooking delicious food since 1999

EST. 1999

Restaurant El Centro was founded in 1999 as first spanish restaurant in Prague by Radek Neruda and his wife Norma Lam de Neruda. The beginings of the restaurant were very humble, but as time went by it found it's strong position in the portfolio of Prague restaurants. One of its advantages is it's posision at the heart of Prague at the Lesser town just five minutes from Charles bridge. EL Centro, with it's carefully chosen selection of tasty tapas, renowned paella, soups and grilled steaks, became a place where people like to return.

Cooking Traditions

We offer you the delicious, traditional dish - paella, with your choice of steaks or fresh fish. We have an enormous choice of excellent Spanish wines as well as carefully selected local wines.
The Spanish cuisine is heavily influenced by regional cuisines and the particular historical processes that shaped culture and society in those territories. Geography and climate, had great influence on cooking methods and available ingredients, and these particularities are still present in the gastronomy of the various regions that make up the country.

Food Quality

Our chef - Anton Mosimann - is selecting the most authentic and fresh ingredients for your dish and he is handling them in the best manner possible to maintain their value in order to deliver the best dishes to your table.
All types of paellas are cooked with olive oil.
