That strange smell wafting from deep inside the courtyard behind Týn Church is the most extensive selection of fresh seafood in Prague, served at the "Fish Market." From starters like oysters on the half shell and jumbo shrimp to main choices like monkfish, salmon, eel, shark, and many others, you select your favorite fish and method of preparation at the bright counter near the entrance. You can eat it with the standard pilaf and other accompaniments, with numerous spices and sauces, either in the comfortably modern indoor area or the medieval courtyard during nicer weather. Despite the name, the dining room has the trappings of a modern bistro rather than an old fish market. This isn't a bad choice for seafood lovers.
