This restaurant has an eastern european theme and is very busy with large groups. Dishes are generously proportioned and good value, but don´t expect fine dining. For example, try the various-meats-dish-for-2, which is huge at a very modest price. Seating inside and outside and also in the vaulted cellar.

Restaurant offers variety of south and east European food. Portions are large, very tasty and cheap. The place is loud and has interior of a tavern. Not a place for romantic dinner but perfect for meeting with friends for a beer and something tasty to eat. I have been there couple times and sometimes it looks like they lack waiters... More

Szwejka is part of a chain and I've been here to Kompania Piwna in the Old city and the Kro akow one by Wawel castle. Basically the food is decent to good depending on what you order. the portions are large and there are daily promotions. I go on Mondays for 'Monday night schnitzel club where a schnitzel, fries and... More

With very reasonable prices in this restaurant, we tried the plate for two persons. There aren't much words which can describe how huge and delicious the portions were! Excellent service and very friendly staff. Worth to visit!

This place is very crowded, I guess because it is cheap. the food is average; low quality ingredients cooked up reasonably well to make for a passable dish. The portions are large, but i tend to go for quality over quantity, so this isn't a priority for me.The service is also underwhelming. you get the distinct impression the staff want... More

This place is one of my favourite places because of the reliability of both food and service. They have staff members that worked for them over the years which says something important about the business by itself, doesn't it? Their food has been great for all the years I have visited them for both lunch and for dinner. One of... More

We had Argentinian beef, pork knuckle as main food, Herring as a starter and chocolate mousse as desert. Starter came with the main meal which should not be the case and shows inadequate attention to serving of food. Argentinian beef was good but the rest did not go beyond any average taste of food. Chocolatte mousse really sucked. The portions... More

Welll, I will start by saying that I have been a couple of times in this place not only for lunch or dinner but also for breakfast. This restaurant has some pros and cons. Pros: Service is pretty fast, menu is varied and food is more than enough (maybe too much), place has a lot of room. Cons: You cannot... More

If you like a place to have fun and drink with friends, or if you are starving and you priviledge quantity over refine food then this is the place. The food is good, not elaborated but good czech food. Drinks also good and in unlimited quantities. Most important the orchestra the "Eastern Mariachis", accordion , trombone , Bass, traditional music,... More
