“Nice stop for coffee and cake, but that's about it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

What a pity. I've always been a sucker for restaurants located in parks. There's nothing more wonderful than strolling through a park, enjoying a nice meal, then walking it off a bit while breathing in the fresh, green air afterwards. It's all about the journey, not the destination, right?

Unfortunately, Ladronka can be a disappointing stop on that journey.

First the good points:
The soups (daily special) are very nice, homemade affairs. The cakes (also daily special) are also always nice. The beer is cold and fresh, even though I'm not a fan of Krusovice, they tap it well. The coffee service is also nice. And if you are with small children, there's a children's menu - cream of wheat porridge (krupicova kase), spaghetti and fried chicken breast.

The bbq meat is fair. They won't ask you how you want your hamburger, and if you tell them, don't expect it to actually come that way. The pork and pink salmon are acceptable.

The service is inconsistent.

Don't order the pasta, gnocchi or salad. The caesar salad is made with iceberg lettuce and a mayo-based dressing. The "Greek" salad features a variety of anaemic vegetables topped with a rectangle of what seems to be processed cheese spread. The "buffalo mozzarella" is probably from the dairy case at Kaufland up the road. That's probably also the origin of the gnocchi and pasta.

Overall ... a very mediocre place.

“Terrible Service, Extremely Bad Food, and Expensive~!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

My fiance and I arrived here after a nice sunny day in the park for some late lunch only to find overpriced mayonnaise salad, salmon drowned in oil, and old bruised vegetables. After sending the salad back, the waitress said we have to pay half. I refused which brought the manager down from his private table on the terrace under the gazing stares of their friends. Tried to argue the finer points of mayonnaise in a cesar salad instead of giving us a refund or offering to not have us pay at all. WILL NOT RETURN AND DO MY BEST TO STEER PEOPLE AWAY.

“Excellent food, great service and beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

Ladronka Gourmet Restaurant is a great choice - they offer traditional food, nice wines and the service is really good. If the weather is nice, I recommend the terrace - the view is excellent.

“Terrible service, prices, food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2012

Located in a park where its the only place to eat or drink, it seems to just not care about customers.

There are four bits (beer garden, inside cafe, courtyard restaurant and gourmet restaurant). All of them are fairly shocking, although the be garden beside kids playground is ok for a beer.

The food is poor and the service is terrible on all levels, unfriendly staff, long waits. Its also very expensive. Bring a picnic to this park instead.
