We went to this restaurant for a dinner and it was a good choice. Meals are very large, food quality is great, everything was very tasty! I was a little suprised that there were not too many people. Indeed, the restaurant looks a little like a pub (which certainly does not affect the quality of food), so I would not... More

I would say this is more of a pub than a restaurant, come here for cheap Czech specialties and good beer! The food was delicious, the portions huge, the service friendly and effective and the overall atmosphere very pleasant. There is a separated non - smoking area which I always appreciate in Czech republic as not all places have this.... More

I love when I travel and I stumble on a restaurant that just exceeds all my expectations. This is one of those places and I'm so thankful that I found it. My wife and I made a reservation (there is a small room toward the back with a few tables for non-smoking) and had nothing short of a Czech feast.... More

We popped into this restaurant as it was suggested on trip advisor to be a good place... The food was very tasty, great prices..the staff had no English but it was still very easy to communicate with them. We had our 11 week old little girl with us and even though they had bookings they still managed to fit us... More

We went to Panoptikum on 23.12. and asked to be seated. Unfortunately every table was already reserved, but the waitress called us back shortly before we could leave and placed us in small separated room, which was non-smoking on the plus side. We had the half duck with Knoedel and a pasta dish (vegetarian dish with only Gorgonzola and Pasta),... More

This is an ultimate choise if you are very hungry and want to eat Czech classics. Good meal, huge portions, historically low prices and polite service will take you to the times when Czech gastronomy was about above mentioned. Of course I am talking about times when cigarettes were usual in restaurants, so get prepared... :D Please, don´t experiment the... More

We went to Panoptikum based on tripadvisor, in search for some less touristic venues, along with fair prices. The food was very good - the dishes were well seasoned, and the variety was very broad, it took us 15 min to choose the right meal! The beer is excellent, and although the waitress did not speak any language but Czech,... More
