Old communist time nostalgy is present at Lokal in a very positive way. Incorrupt way of cooking, very good traditional meals, prices reasonable and of course best Pilsen. Located in Old Town, easily to find, very friendly staff. Gets crowded over weekends especially while Marathon, suggest you book your seats in advance.

Knowing I have a penchant for authentic local food without a lot of fuss, a good friend brought me to Lokal. We had duck and pork dishes and our friend had the pork/dumplings. While it was interesting being in the great hall amid locals and tourists alike, the food was only so la la. Czech beer anywhere makes me happy,... More

Tried to walk in on a Saturday night around 7 but it was full & the place is huge. Returned on Sunday when the place was full of locals many watching Sparta Prague on a couple of pull down screens. Huge platefuls of food, good service & beer was fine though not much choice just dark or light. Reasonable prices.... More

I would like to preface this review by pointing out that I have been living in Prague for over 20 years and have therefore had Czech food hundreds if not thousands of times (and I have consumed a few Pilsner Urquells as well). Lokál has been open for several years, but it is a bit out of the way for... More

We have visited Lokal Restaurant at Dlouha 33, 110 00 Praha 1. Although we ordered "beef hanger", we realized something different with the meat. We could not catch that was a pork since we have never eaten pork before because we do not prefer to eat it due to our religion. At the end, it came out "pork necklace" in... More

A friend and i hit this place up last minute with no reservation and were able to get a table within 20 mins on a saturday night. We were happy to perch on the side of the bar and watch the steins being filled to happy customers. Food was great, servings sizes were enough for me, with two sides and... More

The atmosphere here was great. It was busy and loud, but oddly still felt somewhat homey. Additionally, the food was delicious, and you must order the goulash with bread dumplings. The sauce was so fantastic that I couldn't help but mop up every last bit of it with the dumplings! However, what is not up to par here is the... More

During a short stay in Prague we looked for an eating place with original local food and we found Lokal . the place looks like a cantina of the past communist era, huge and austere but the food is good , the beers great and the service prompt.If you are not snobbish you will surely enjoy it too.

We went to Lokal on the day of arrival. We wanted some local food near our hotel. The restaurant is not, and doesn’t pretend to be a 5*. But the food is tasty. You can taste the local food, as we think locals would have it. The goulash and the dumplings were good. I would only say that the portions... More

We had a good time here. The beer was really nice. it comes from a tank or something. We loved the atmosphere of the place. Worth having a look.
