Delicious!

Really good traditional cuisine in a pub. Friendly service and tasty tar tar stakes. The pig head cheese was so delicious, try it even tough it sounds weird.

We took the advice of fellow travelers who said it was worthy and we completely agree. A bustling restaurant with Czech classics served up in a rustic way. Think 'bierstube.' It is award winning and is several hundred years old. Very fairly priced for someone accustomed to paying in Euros. Fresh. Tasty. Good service. Would return anytime in the area... More

Though it's an old pub, the inside was bright, clean, fresh - not like the dirty old Bohemian pubs of the past. We had fried cheese, salmon (both served with the pub's own homemade potato chips/crisps), and garden salad with chicken strips. Delicious, all of it. Fried cheese is standard "vegetarian" pub fare in these parts, a must-try if you're... More

We ordered a Beer of course. The Goulash soup came in a bread bowl complete with lid to keep it hot. It was wonderful.. We had the chicken roast with pomme frites and weiner schnitzel with potato salad. Oh so delicious. Will eat there again if in the city.

Service is not the best, food is so-so= quite OK. Beer is very good. Historically this pub is one of the oldest in Plzen. Question is: Is that enough? I would recommend a different pub: Parkan, Comix, 12°. All three are quite close to this one Cheers!

The service was terrible and not a friendly atmosphere at all. The food was so-so. Would not return to this establishment.

Friendly servers - not always the case in the Czech Republic. We sat on the deck under a huge umbrella - it was a lovely evening and the place had a pleasant vibe. The apple cider was sweeter than I am used to, Mom had beer (it is the location after all). We had a goulash and dumplings and I... More

Set in a great location almost right at Plzen's main square, U Salzmannu is one of the oldest pubs in the region and really stands out between the rest. The beers are top class. The people coming here are mostly locals, which adds to the atmosphere. Food is above average, yet not the best in town. Really recommend this place... More
