“Traditional Czech fare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We had an evening meal in this pub/restaurant. The food was homely and well prepared. Recommend trying the ubiquitous pork-knee with grated horseradish. Interesting carved wooden wall panelling give this place a rustic feel. Service efficient if not particularly friendly.

“Good but slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Food is good but service is not so good (slow) maybe because of amount of people and only 1 servant (NY holidays).
Wanted to try goulash in bread, but the bread was finished(

“First-rate traditional Czech cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This restaurant was recommended by several guidebooks, as well as in this forum, so I went with high expectations, and I wasn't disappointed - in fact, I went back there to eat the next day. On my first visit I had a traditional Czech dish - pot-roasted beef with a creamy sauce, cranberries, and sliced bread dumplings - topped with a spoonful of whipped cream, and accompanied by a fresh green salad. It was delicious - and with a glass of Pilsner Urquell cost just 213 CZK - excellent value. On my second visit I had cheese and garlic soup (another traditional dish) followed by carp sauteed with garlic, served with potatoes, grated carrot and pickled red cabbage. Once again it was delicious - the fish fresh and sweet and beautifully cooked, and the bill (with a glass of beer and an espresso) just 214 CZK.

The menus here are worth mentioning - easy to read, and each dish is illustrated with a good clear photo. Great for anyone sampling traditional Czech dishes for the first time. Also, as a solo diner I was treated courteously by the waiters and didn't feel rushed - sometimes when a restaurant is as busy as this one was you feel that they can't wait to get rid of you to seat a larger group.

“Refreshing !!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Arrived at the door step excepting the regular Czech food, however the fish we ordered was fantastic. Wait staff were pleasant and easy to get along with.
