Eat Where The Tourists Do Not Go
There is only one tip that matters here: Eat anywhere but where the tourists go. If you really want to experience the Czech cuisine then stay away from tourist spots. True, the sign outside the door will say authentic food cuisine but it is not. It is overpriced and made for customers that the cook knows will probably never return. Czechs never go there.
The best food is always in restaurants that the locals frequent. The portions are bigger and less expensive. The waiter will speak spotted English, but that is all you need. You cannot go wrong with Czech food. Point to something on the menu and enjoy. Or as you walk into the restaurant have a look at what other people are eating. Then when the waiter comes, point and ask to have 'what she is having'.
The Beer Sign Leads The Way
To find an authentic Czech restaurant turn off onto a side street and walk for ten minutes, away from the tourists. Restaurants are easy to spot, not by a sign stating the name of the restaurant, but by a large glowing sign stating which beer they serve. Each restaurant serves one brand of beer. The beer company supplies them with table cloths, coasters, glasses and a large glowing sign to display outside the restaurant. The most popular beer in Prague is Pilsner Urqual. It glows green. Looking down a street you can quickly determine whether there are any restaurants. Just look for the beer signs.
