Had a great evening here. Good food, especially the barbecued meats, which are cooked on a large grill in the middle of the room. Excellent live music, very good value for money and cosy atmosphere. Well worth seeking out!
The gnocchi with sheep's cheese starter was one of the nicest dishes I ate in Prague. Decent Pilsner Urquell, good service. The music we heard was a trio (violin, hammered dulcimer and double bass). They played a range of material, with leanings towards folk and gypsy music, but included quite a few reworkings of "old favourites". They alternated playing for about 30 minutes with taking a break for 20 minutes or so, which I thought was an excellent balance. The music is not amplified so it's at a level you can enjoy without it drowning out conversation.
To get there, take tram number 11 from I. P. Pavlova for 3 stops (get off at Nuselske schody). Then walk down the hill for a few minutes and the restaurant will be on your right. Go through the gate, keep going along the path (there were several small chalet-like buildings either side, ignore these, maybe they're used in the summer?). At the end of the path the main restaurant is on your left.
