“Perfect meals and beer”

“Awful food, unpleasant service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

I come to Brno almost once a year, and every time I try a new place. Every time I want to try some local food and this place had been recommended by a hotel receptionist, who said it has an excellent cuisine... Well, excellent was only my beer, the food was awful. The place itself look nice, is old-fashion stylised, but in funny way does not look old, rather brand new, perhaps in a about 50 years it will get the charm.

I picked up and recommended to my friend dishes I know, I had tried before (at restaurants and and/or friends homes) and I must say that with exception of the goose pâté (not foie gras!), the other food - goulash, baked duck, sauerkraut, cabbage, 3 different kind of bread/potatoes dumplings (knedlíky), strange cold sauces - did not taste good. At all!

The waiters were quite rude.

There are much more better restaurants in Brno. Although for having beer and beer snacks it's cool (upper floor is for non-smokers). Crowded in the evenings; reservation recommended.

“Reasonable prices, varied menu with classic Czech dishes and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Having not been able to book a table at 10pm, due to arriving late from Bratislava, we were still able to get a table in the non-smoking section of the restaurant (which is a bonus, considering a lot of bars still allow smoking - something we're not used to in the UK).

The food was filling and excellent for the price (compared to the UK at least, but it is a little more pricey in Czech standards), the menu had a good selection of dishes and small sides to compliment a few rounds of beers. I was informed that the menu covered quite a typical range of Czech dishes and I decided to go for Beef cooked in cream and wine and I was certainly not disappointed as it was deliciously tender and filling. Not entirely sure about the whipped cream and cranberries with it though...

The staff were all very pleasant and efficient, speaking English without fuss. The location makes for a good pit stop on a bit of a session around Brno or any sightseeing/shopping. As other people have mentioned, it is an idea to try to book a table in advance since it can get very busy in this place.

Worth a visit.
