Dining in the open air in the leafy surrounds of a restaurant or cafe garden is one of the great pleasures of summertime in Prague. Choosing the right spot for an outdoor meal is now easier with a new payment app feature that'll come in handy for garden season.

Qerko is an app that allows diners to pay at restaurants via QR code without waiting for a server. It lets users search for more than a thousand eateries that accept payment via the app. Using the garden filter you can also see which restaurants have gardens; half of them do, and a total of 125 in Prague boast outdoor seating.

The people at Qerko sifted through data from users who visited restaurants with gardens and shared the top-ranked establishments, basing their list on the reviews customers leave when paying. Restaurants were rated according to food, service, and overall design and ambiance.
