“Great relaxed space”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

I visited this wine bar the evening I arrived in Prague for a light dinner with my husband. There was a short but very good wine list invluding local and French wines by the glass, an extensive cognac and spirits list and nibbles to sustain you. We shared a very good antipasto style plate served with bread and some DELICIOUS chocolate truffles for dessert. Definitely worth checking out.

“Classic Prague Cellar Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

U Stare Studny is a great place to go for a relaxing glass or bottle of wine. They have nibbles of olives, cheese and sausages - a perfect place to start or end an evening out, especially for smaller groups or couples.

I have been several times, and every staff member I have come across is friendly, professional and knowledgeable about the wine. It is a beautiful cellar and, as it's name suggests, contains it's own wellspring! If you are traveling to Prague, you should prioritize having dinner or a drink in one of the cities many cellars - U Stare Studne is one of the best you could possibly choose.

Na zdraví!

“Great little place - loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

We were looking for something nice and casual (and authentic and not too touristy), found this place on Tripadvisor and it was just perfect, we really loved it. Amazingly atmospheric, down a couple of flights of stairs into numerous cellars (you can pick smoking or non-smoking), really nice wine at good prices, excellent platter of bread and cheese - perfect! Seemed to be a lot of locals in there which I took as a good sign. Lot of people trying the Cognac tasting - looked interesting, maybe next time.

“Great place for evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

If you like Armagnac, Cognac or wine, this place is great for evening out. You can taste most of franche cognacs/armagnac and eat poultry paté or hand made truffels here. One of my favorit places to spend evening in Prague.

“Wonderful relaxing space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We stumbled across this place after visiting the bizarre KGB museum up the road. Very surprised to read reviews saying this is not 'for real wine lovers' as we had some brilliant (albeit French) wine (as the staff member said the local reds by the glass were very light), accompanied by a cheese and meat platter. I'm not sure that anything I saw suggested it was a wine tasting venue - it's a wine bar...... Service was wonderful (and all the staff we came across spoke great English - and given we're not in an English speaking country....). The atmosphere is great - how many places can you sit and drink wine around a 14th century well at your feet? I'd happily spend hours here and suggest others do too.
