You'd expect something more historical, but the brewery--or at least the museum and attached buildings--looks like an office building. The restaurant is around the corner. As always in the Czech Republic, you'll be seated next to someone who's smoking. The Twenty-first century certainly hasn't arrived here in this respect. The food here is simple, unimaginative pub fare to go along... More

It's about 1.5 miles due north from the main square: Karoliny Svetle 4. Not a pretty walk by any means but not bad. We popped in just for a couple beers and some fries in the early afternoon. It was fine. Typical Czech surly staff, decent beer and good fries for about 5US.

We are here before the brewery trip and I had a glass of the light 4% budvar beer and to eat Carp both of which were really good. Thoroughly recommend- also we walked there and it took half an hour from town although you could get the number 2 bus.

This is the second time we visited Ceske Budejovice and also the second time we had lunch at the Budvar Brewery. We came back because of the food food and excellent beer of course. The place was packed and a lot of the tables were reserved for groups that were visiting the brewery but there was a place at a... More

You can come here after the Budvar Brewery visit. Good beer - I like Budejovicky ležak tmawy. Very fresh and good food. Reasonable prices.

Tour of the brewery was very good value. Guide was friendly and laid back and it was very un-corporate, like a nice family business and we were free to take photos. Had a few lovely beers in the restaurant. Didn't eat so can't comment on that but the prices looked reasonable.

I guess people who don't understand beer wouldn't like the place. They make their own beer and it's very good one. The food is ok, nothing to surprise you. Small no smoking room, no tv in the room, but lots of vintage beer posters. The main old hall is huge and seems like no big difference how it looked from... More
