8 Can’t Miss Brno Restaurants | Where to Eat & Drink in Brno, Czech Republic

Sharing is caring!

During our TBEX FAM trip I was fortunate to be sent to Brno, the second largest city in the Czech Republic. During our time there, we were able to try many of the best Brno restaurants—everything from fine dining to Vietnamese food!

We also hit up several of Brno’s drinking establishments. We enjoyed laid back rum bars, high-end wine bars and even a bar with one of the most unique concepts I’ve ever seen!

I want to thank Holiday Moments for showing us their city and helping me with this list. They are experts at putting together tours of not only Brno but all of the South Moravian area. Be sure to check out their site if you need help planning your visit!

My Picks for Must Try Brno Restaurants & Bars

 

Jean Pauls Bistro

Zelny trh 14 (ground floor) // +420 608 152 221

Our guide showed us this local favorite for lunch. Apparently, it’s one of his regular spots.

On the menu you can find mostly Italian fare, including excellent pastas (try the carbonara), risottos, lasagnas, and salads.

The casual feel makes it great for a quick lunch while you’re exploring the city.

PAVILLON

Jezuitská 6 // +420 607 005 905

Pavillon is one of the best fine dining restaurants in Brno. The restaurant itself is gorgeous—modern without being pretentious. I loved the open kitchen concept. We could watch the team put our meals together during our visit.

The staff were all incredible—ever present without being over bearing and very knowledgeable about the menu and proper wine pairings.

Their menu changes frequently, but I advise you to try their tasting menu, like we did. I loved all of the dishes, but the seafood ones were my favorite. They do fish very well and the plating and accompanying wine were spot on.

Atelier Cocktail Bar & Bistro

Kobližná 2 // +420 739 401 086

Our guide recommended Atelier as his favorite place in town for both dinner and cocktails. Before landing in Brno, Atelier’s chef cooked in both London and Berlin.

Their seasonal menu focuses on locally sourced ingredients. It brings you dishes such as mussels roasted in coconut milk and served with long beans, chicken in a Mexican molé sauce, and some of the most gorgeous desserts in all of Brno.

But of all this place has to offer, the cocktails may be the star of the show. You can order them from the menu or discuss what you like in a drink with your server—they’ll gladly create an off menu cocktail for you.

KOISHI Fish & Sushi

Údolní 11 // +420 777 564 744

KOISHI is currently rated as the best restaurant in Brno, and for good reason. KOISHI employs an actual Japanese sushi master and uses only the freshest and highest quality ingredients.

Other fish dishes on the menu are prepared with as much love and care as the sushi, and the presentation is just as gorgeous.

If you’re not in the mood for seafood, the restaurant also features options like their veal tenderloin or roasted lamb. If you’re a fan of oysters, be sure to give them a try—we all loved ours, especially when paired with a local prosecco!

Go Vietnamese

Běhounská 115/4 // +420 720 021 575

If you’re craving Asian food, check out Go Vietnamese. Our guides told us this place has been popular since the day they opened their doors!

Here you’ll find authentic Vietnamese recipes made with fresh ingredients at more than reasonable prices!

I didn’t get a chance to try the pho (next time!), but the bun bo nam bo I did order was one of their more popular dishes, and I quickly learned why.

Café Pilát

Kapucínské náměstí 5 // +420 603 974 496

Café Pilát is a bit tucked away, but that makes it an even better way place to begin your day with a quiet cup of coffee. The caffeine addicts in our group raved, agreeing it was the best coffee in Brno. The gorgeous interior makes it a pleasant place to spend a lazy morning as you savor the details of the cafe.

If you’re hungry, their ever-changing menu features authentic Middle Eastern food with options like lamb shawarma and lemon baked potatoes served over red lentils, spiced meatballs served with bulgur, Moroccan lamb soups, and shakshuka for breakfast!

You can also find plenty of vegetarian options, like housemade falafel, hummus and stuffed eggplant.

Retro Consistorium

Mečová 4 // +420 543 210 175

Featuring one of the best wine selections (270+ bottles!) in Brno, they’ve got something here for anyone’s tastes.

Their weekly menu features choices such as a foie gras terrine with apple chutney and bruschetta, seared ahi tuna served over vegetable caponata, and some seriously impressive steaks.

Bonus: Now that I have you sorted for dining options, check out these suggestions for desserts and drinks as well!


Cupcakekarna

Nam. Svobody 21 // +420 732 985 829

What better way to finish your dinner than by sampling some award-winning cupcakes?

The cupcakes, which are as delicious as they are gorgeous, come in a wide variety of flavors, including red velvet, Oreo, marscapone, and even a chocolate chili cupcake!

They even stock vegan and lactose-free options.

Petit Cru Wine Bar

Údolní 11 // +420 774 497 787

Petit Cru has a great selection of wine and is manned by an incredibly knowledge shop owner who is happy to take a deep dive into wines with you. What else could you want from a wine bar?

Brno restaurants

Even better—you’re able to try a sample of wines before you commit to a glass! Situated right next to KOISHI, this is a great place to meet friends for a glass of wine (or two!) before dinner next door.

Zelená Kočka Pivarium

Dvořákova 3 // +420 775 566 602

This place is widely regarded at the best beer bar in town—likely due to their huge selection of craft beers. Here you can find everything from local brews to IPA’s, APAs, summer ales, golden ales and so much more.

They’ll even let you sample drafts to help you choose which you’ll like best.

You can also find a selection of hearty beer snacks to go along with your brews. We tried the pork ribs and homemade chips.

Cubana

Jezuitská 3 // +420 732 871 995

Cubana is a laid back rum bar that features more than 300 kinds of rum. The friendly and knowledgeable staff will go through the menu with you to help you to decide which drink you’ll like most.

They have all the Cuban classics—mojitos daiquiris, and caipirinhas, but many of their drinks come with great updated twists on the original recipes, such as fresh berries and star anise syrups made in-house.

Super Panda Circus

Shilingrovo namesti 257/3 // +420 734 878 603

This is one of those places where you’ll really just have to take my word for it and go check it out for yourself.

Super Panda Circus has been awarded best designed bar/best cocktail menu and best cocktail bar in all of the Czech Republic, so you know it’s legit.

The concept is a bit far out and hard to explain, but playing off the circus theme, you’ll roll dice to have your drinks determined, spin the wheel hung on the wall, or have your cards read to see what you should be served.

What ever drink you end up with, you can’t really go wrong. They craft only super premium craft cocktails, many made with local liquors. We even tried a Czech liquor infused with butter!

Their tagline is “nothing makes any sense,” and they proclaim “We do not have a regular menu, we have stories.” So, go for yourself and check it out. You’ll be glad you did.

Also, I should note, non-alcoholic drinks are available for those who want to take part in the experience but don’t want to drink.
