I think here they have the most delicious dish for the famous Olomouc stinky cheese. It is served with bread and onion and tasted good :D

Close to the university, this brewery offers a wide range of local beers. The food is excellent and gives one a chance to taste dishes of authentic Czech cuisine. The portions are generous and everything is fairly inexpensive.

If you are beer lover, you must visit this restaurant! The brewhouse is part of the interior, you can smell hop once you step in:-) During the lunchtime they have daily menu, which contains 3 or 4 meals (combination of typical czech cousine with something lighter - chicken, salad, pasta, pancakes). Prices around 80 - 100 CZK. If you came... More

Czechia is renowned for beer--in a different way than Belgium--but a very special way. Saint Wenceslas Brewery is a way to experience a great Czech mini-brewery. Production is running in the dining area, so the happiness and hopiness merge into one intoxicating atmospheric quality. With great food and friendly staff this place is very real.

You may need to book at weekends, but it is a must on my list when visiting Olomouc. The food and beer is always superb.

This place was just around the corner from where we were staying, and we ended up there for one lunch and two dinners. All were great, and very well priced. We'd recommend the smoked pork knuckle with plum sauce if its on the menu, and the sausage from the "snacks to go with beer" menu. They make great beer (the... More
