“Excellent value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Not fancy by any means, this is a good traditional restaurant. We were only in Brno for the day, so it was nice to be able to sample a local beer. Also, with Brno being near the wine growing regions, we tried some local wines as well. The food was typical Czech fare--lots of meat, dumplings and heavy sauces. It was tasty and filling. The service here was very friendly and welcoming. We wanted to buy some of their beer mugs, and they were very accomodating (and reasonably priced). This restaurant is a stately presence on the side of the cabbage market, so it's easy to locate.

“Delicious, great ambience and reasonable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The fried chicken with mashed potatoes was amazing. Add cucumber salad and the local beer and you have a winner. All for less than Eur 12.

“Nice seat on the cabbage market.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Nothing outstanding but decent dinning on a warm evening in Brno looking out on the square or at the Church steeple depending on where you sit.

“Must have caught them on a good day then...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I don't know what the other reviewers were unhappy about. When we went, the service was impeccable, the food although not perfect was quite good and excellent value, and the decor was interesting and had lots of historical interest. I went back a second time and it was just as good that time. Okay I grant you it wasn't the best I had in Brno but it wasn't by any means the worst and I left each time very full and happy.
