This place gets a lot of hype which we found undeserved. The only great thing is the bistorical building and unusual layout of the place. Bowever, the food is very unimaginative and overpriced. The beer was also nothing to come back for.

Good service, food and beer, comfortable surroundings with lots of different seating areas and seems popular with locals too.

We tried to get a place at this establishment twice, however without any success. Staff was very unfriendly and unprofessionall telling us twice that the whole place was fully booked though half of the restaurant was empty. No recommendation to come later and no apologies. I had a feeling they didn't want us at their place. First time we have... More

Its exactly what you would expect from a brewery restaurant. Good variety of traditional Czech cusine. Unfortunately, the staff is really cold,even rude. Once you finish the meal nobody cares about you anymore.

Crowded and festive beer hall with authentic delicious bohemian dishes. Crowded, a hot spot for many local people so it's better to make a reservation in advance. Fast and professional service. Sadly a lot of people smoke indoors, it's a bit on the loud side as well. Nevertheless, authentic regional dining experience with excellent beer, always worth a visit.

if you are a beer fan, or if you have read Michael Jackson's (not the singer) World Guide to Beer you'll know about MK. This is hundreds of years old and an old meat market. I went there in 1984 when CZ was still communist. Ceske Budejovice was grey, wet, depressing. There were some pearls, but i went to drink... More

Checked in as the place was recommended by my hotel receptionist. Was not disappointed. Very good česnečka, delicious svíčková and excellent beer. Typical Czech atmosphere; good service and good looks for the place. Would return with every occasion!

I recently spent a week in České Budějovice, and ate at this restaurant twice. The name means "Meat shops". It was the site of meat shops in the past. Since 1954 it has been a restaurant. The food is excellent Czech beer hall fare. The beer food item called "Budvarský Mls" was just awesome. It's one of the best beer... More

We ate lunch here, our shuttle driver said this was his favorite place to eat. A lot of locals were there. Good food at a reasonable price.

Everything matched the expectations. Tasteful local food, gorgeous beer and a fully renovated local. Definitely one of the places to go in Ceske Budejovice!
