“Massive portions at unbeatable prices.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

This was one of three restaurants in different price ranges recommend by our guide. Off a little alley deep in League's historic vented it is unpretentious but clean with the feel of something locals would save for themselves.

For approximately $5 I ordered the pork cabbage & dumpling plate. The plate contained large portions of pork roasted & what I would describe as "corned". Cabbage came braised as well as sauerkraut. Three huge dumpling portions in two ways also accompanied. I would recommend sharing so you would have room for one of the inexpensive local beers as well as desert.

“Nize value 4 money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013 via mobile

Agree with others - this is definitively value for money and then this close to the market square. Great beer ! Service is medium but naturally it helps if you tell them their beer is great :o) I'll be back !

“Probably the best choice for a budget lunch in central Prague”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

You know how the Old Town Square can be expensive in terms of food. However, U Cipu offers one of the best solutions for affordable food and drinks just 30m away from the Atronomical Clock. Just look for the sign at one of the small passages facing the clock and you will find yourself in a nice back alley with a few street tables and plenty of seats inside. The food is rather delicious and the beer is also nice. But what's best is that you can spend as much as a half of money you would do in most places located right next to it. The best pick for a fast affordable lunch while sightseeing.

“Not sophisticated but good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We enjoyed it!
Near Old Town square but away from the crowd in a somewhat quiet street - very decent quality czech food, many different beers, cheap price compared to some other restaurants nearby. Good for light dinner! Average service: our main waiter, very kind, brought us some tap water in addition to our paid drinks when we asked. Later, we asked another waiter for another glass of tap water and she said she couldn't!!!
