Why so empty?

I went there based on the reviews I read. Do people here eat late? I went at 7pm, and I was the only customer in the entire place. The food was good, service good, and price good, too. The menu was both in Czech and English. Just a little bewildered by the emptiness, that's all.

Poor service, empty, don't be fooled by the pretty building. We waited 20 minutes to be served drinks and about 20 more before being given the bill... we were wanting to order food. Locals had candles lit and were treated with basic manors, not amazingly well all the same though. Would never go back in.

Uneatable spicy soup, not tasty mushroom risotto but that would be survivable. But the incompetent and impolite staff is something else.. The guy is so arrogant and the ladies so amateur, it hurts.. :) just the payment procesy took three atempts and 20 minutes :) never again!

Good is usually quite good. Yet, today had a garlic soup which was so salty that it is simply ridiculous. I told the wait or and i have been waiting for a reaction for the past 65 mins. CRAZY BAD AND DISRESPECTFUL SERVICE. I have been happy with this place in the past yet today they lost me as a... More

A second dinner confirmed the good quality of the first . I enjoyed eating in the garden although the dining room is comfortable and well decorated. There is also an excellent pianist.I did like Tuna steak with orange sauce one evening and a salmon steak with garlic mashed potatoes the second one .Desserts are gorgeous .Try Bohemian Cake with honey...

I understand,that two waiters for the restaurant are so little. But it is problem of the owner and not mine. So friday evening: Sweaty waiter told me, that the kitchen is very busy and i will wait about one hour for the meal. O.K. I have accepted it. But who was very busy? For the first drink I have waited... More

Podkova diserves a much higher rating! My dinner alone was a most pleasant experience, with excellent food and great service. Scallops were so fresh they hadly needed cooking Venison rump was not served very rare but you didnt need a knife to cut it, it was so tender and served in a delicious mushroom sauce with traditional Czech dumplings.
