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

We visited as a family of 2 adults and 2 kids on Saturday evening. We were seated in non-smoking part of restaurant. Almost all tables were taken or reserved, so we got ours purely by chance. It was clean inside, and the walls were nicely decorated with historical photographs from Karlovy Vary, but cigarette smoke was in the air from... More

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.
