Dlouha is probably the hippest streets in Prague's Old Town and La Casa Argentina is one of the reasons why. As the name suggests, La Casa Argentina is an Argentinian restaurant, which means beef to me but this is much more than another steak restaurant. They have multiple dining areas, live music, live animals and an amazing kid's play area.

La Casa Argentina Prague
La Casa Argentina has four different dining areas, all decorated with their own distinct themes. When you walk in off the street you enter the Caminito Street room, named for and decorated to depict the famous street in Buenos Aires. This room seats about 60 people and features its own bar and a small stage. There is live music every night as well as Latin dancing.

Next to the Caminito Street room is the Salon Iguazu. This bright, sun lit room seats about 30 people and the decor is inspired by the beautiful Iguazu falls north of Buenos Aires. I'm told at one time there was an actual water fall feature in the room but due to some recent renovations it had to be removed, so now the dominant feature in the room is a large fish tank at one end.

Passing through Salon Iguazu you enter a nautical themed room called Puerto La Boca. It also has its own bar and looked like it would seat 45 to 50 comfortably. This room is also the home of La Casa Argentina's chameleon and two pigmy marmosets.

La Casa Argentina Prague
Upstairs from Puerto La Boca is the largest of the four dining areas, Salon La Isla. This room has its own bar and seats up to 90 people. The Salon La Isla is a large bright space, separated from the rest of La Casa Argentina by a set of stairs. It struck me that it would be the perfect place for a small wedding reception or a birthday party.

Just off the Salon La Isla is La Casa Argentina's magnificent children's area. If you are visiting Prague with children, or live in Prague and like most of us, you have children, this may be the most important information about the restaurant. I have been in Prague about ten years and have had at least one kid for eight of those years. I have seen all manner of wonderful child friendly spaces in restaurants and cafes around Prague but this is the best child friendly zone I've seen. There is a structure with balls to jump in, slides to go down and things to kick and climb on.

La Casa Argentina Prague for kids
It's perfect for the 3 and ups who don't have the patience to sit and wait for food to arrive. This clever little kid's area has its own washroom and a small kitchen with a sink and a microwave oven so you can prepare formula and baby food for the younger children. The fact that this family friendly spot has its own washroom is convenient but to have a small kitchen area, as well, really puts it over the top for me. As if that weren't enough, there is another small room just for younger children and babies. It's a small quiet space with toys and places to sit away from the noise and confusion of the main play area. This spacious children's play area is staffed with nannies and is free to La Casa Argentina diners and available to anyone for an hourly fee, so you could just drop the kids off while you shop in Namesti Republiky or along Dlouha.

La Casa Argentina Prague
As I said La Casa Argentina is about beef. They have 12 kinds of steaks, with a mix of U.S. and Argentine meat but they offer more than just red meat. La Casa Argentina menu has something for everyone. There are pasta and seafood options as well as an array of salads, desserts and of course, a great children's menu. Although I had beer, I think it's worth noting, they boast 119 wines and cocktails.

If you're out with friends, on a dinner date, or looking for a place the whole family can enjoy, La Casa Argentina is the place to be in Prague's old town.

   If you live in Prague, (or plan to) and have preschool age children, (or plan to), You will more than likely find yourself seeking out full or part time daycare. The first thing you should know is that the Czech Republic has had a bit of a baby boom over the last decade. There is some debate as to whether it counts as an actual "boom" but what ever it was, it resulted in a high demand for early child care and made good spaces scarce. On the positive side, with the high demand also came an increased demand for premium quality child care. Daycare is a solid business now and the daycares in Prague make every effort to meet the high standards expected by parents here.

1
   Materska Skola Bambino in Prague has done an excellent job of creating the ideal child care environment for this high demand, high quality market. Bambino started in 2009 with their Dejvicka location, expanded in 2012 with a second day care in Prague four and again in 2013 when they opened their newest location in Vinohrady. The Vinohrady location is in an area of Prague ten that consists almost entirely of villas built in the 20's and 30's. The Bambino daycare operates on a quiet tree lined street from one of these villas.

   Before Bambino acquired the space it had been converted from villa to office space so they spent considerable time and effort to transform the space back to a more homey feel. It's many levels and rooms are designated for specific purposes. A room full of beds for nap time, a room with a kitchen and tiny table for meals, a large, brightly lit music room, an art room, a large fenced in play area in the back, they have gardening and animals, (the Dejvicka location even has goats). The walls are covered with artwork from and photos of all the kids who've been with them over the years. The children move about in a care free manner, obviously at home in this relaxed atmosphere.

   There's no question Bambino has engineered a pleasant and enjoyable environment for the children. I hardly had to get past the first floor of the converted villa to see that. It's difficult to imagine a better space for young children but when seeking out child care, there are a few other things you will likely need to consider.

7
   The best daycares in Prague will fully prepare your child for the transition to elementary school. Bambino belongs to the Czech School register, which means they meet all the requirements and regulations of the state and private schools. Bambino has both Czech and English programs, (with the addition of French at the Dejvicka location).  The children going into Czech school will obviously take the Czech program and the ones going to private, English schools would go through the English program. I find most parents, whether Czech or long term foreign residents, would like their children to be bilingual and it is possible to have the children spend some time in both programs. I'm guessing, based on my experience with my own young children, that even when a child is spending all his or her time in one language program, they will tend to pick up some of the other language just from the interaction with the other kids.

  Aside from language and other more academic aspects of preparing them for first grade, Bambino tries to ensure they are mature enough and emotionally ready for the big step. Children, of course, mature at different rates and some kids need a lot more support and development than others. Bambino has a policy of no more than ten children to a teacher so they have time to focus on the kids that need a little more time and energy.

4
   Bambino schedules a yearly meeting with every parent to discuss the child's development through the year but the teachers write a monthly evaluation of each student and these evaluations are available upon request.

   As a parent of preschool age children, all I want is for them to be in a comfortable space with a good staff and a solid program of learning and development. As I've described, Bambino has all of that.  They also have a door to door bus service, summer programs, flexible schedules. they even do birthday parties on weekends.

   It's a new era for early child care in Prague and Bambino gets it.

   Prague is exploding with children. Nowhere more, it seems, than in neighbourhood of Karlin. The cafes and restaurants in the area have done a pretty good job of adapting to the influx of tiny patrons. It's become quite common for an establishment to dedicate a corner or even a small room to the under 12 set. Cafes, Italian restaurants, even your more traditional Czech eateries are giving in to the growing demographic of parents with young children. Parents that still want to go for lunch or meet a friend for coffee.

Kralik v radiu Prague
    Let's face it, once they start walking, most kids can't sit quietly and wait for their meal. They need some sort of distraction. Some places make more of an effort than others but they generally have a small table and chairs, some paper, crayons, books and an assortment of toys. Of course many of these cafes and restaurants offer a child menu or at least a few kid friendly items on the regular menu. Králik v rádiu has taken this concept to the next level. You could say, they made a large play area and put a cafe in the corner.  

Kralik v radiu Prague
    Králik v rádiu is a casual cafe, brightly lit, decorated in muted primary colours, some durable tables and chairs and a cement floor that says "you can spill anything on me, it's ok, i'm expecting it." The decor is done with toddlers in mind. There's not much to knock over, scratch, stain or rip but it doesn't feel spars. The overall feel is bright, warm and inviting. There's a corner near the door with lots of space for shoes and bags and a long  row of hooks for jackets. This might be my favourite feature of Králík v rádiu. Even the most child friendly places in Prague don't give you enough space for all the stuff you have to cart around with you when you have children.

   The second of Kralik v radiu's two rooms is about the same size as the seating area and essentially one big play room. It has some tables and chairs, a sofa and of course a wide range of toys.  The play area comes with supervision and organized games, music and art activities that are free of charge. Of course it's well worth to know you don't have to watch them every minute. The price to use the supervised play area starts at 100 CZK per day but depending how many kids and whether or not you eat, the price can go down to less than 38 CZK per hour.  If parents want a few hours of alone time, they can leave their children in the capable hands of local babysitters for 300 CZK per hour. The price scale makes it a popular spot for kid's parties.

Kralik v radiu Prague
   Kralik v radiu offers your standard cafe fare with gluten and lactose free meals. They have cakes, pastries, and coffee but they also prepare a good variety of kid and parent friendly dishes in their small kitchen. They have soups, pasta, salads, omelettes and sandwiches. The food is good, home- made, reasonably priced and as good a reason to go to Kralik v radiu as any I've mentioned so far. I've been to many cafes and restaurants in Prague that fall short of Kralik v radiu based on the food alone but it's their unique approach and their ability to create a parent friendly space that will keep us coming back.
