Picked this restaurant after reading couple of reviews. I was looking for a cheaper place to have lunch with my family in otherwise, quite expensive town. For really more then a reasonable price, we got very big portions (especially for Czech standards). Food was excellent, and i can say it was best lunch i had during my 2 month stay... More

Huge portions/low prices. You should also try pint of Svijany Beer because its much better than Pilsner Urquel.

The female owner wasn't very friendly and with not very good English. We ordered two dishes and a beer. The traditional Czech dish was better than the other fried fish.

Very good food (and portions) for good prices and very interesting interior with historical photos of Karlovy Vary - probably the biggest public exhibition.

We anticipated an hour and a half would be enough for lunch prior to our bus departure, we barely made it. As anxious Americans we wanted to eat and run but that is not the lifestyle in CR. We had 2.5liters of gambrinus, a very tasty Czech beer. The food arrived and it was great! I ordered the chicken caprese... More

Best food by the meter. Order 1 day in advance the traditional meter of food. Pleasant staff and good secret of Karlovy Vary as not many tourists can find this place.

Authentic Czech restaurant out of the tourist flow. Good food and service, local prices and cold beer. Best in Karlovy Vary we have found so far.
