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.

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. When we got our check, we found the total price didn't match the food's price we ordered. The female owner used pen to write the price of single items and... More

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. At beginning you will be suprised about the amount of traditional food on the plate (wooden plank) and suddenly you start eating things you have probably never eaten before... More
