Having lived in the Czech Republic, the bar is lower for me
Sep 2019
I was in a private tour group. Me my wife and our great guide. As we had previously lived in the CR for about 2 years, the guide let us handle our own food etc. We di fine. Got what we wanted, it was fine and the meal and the beer was totally fine. This place was not cheap, but not super expensive. Def you are paying for the experience. My food came sans tartar sauce. I need it. I asked the first passing waitress, she said OK. after 5 minutes I saw our waiter and asked him and he said OK, We are eating deep fried cheese--if it cools, it is tire rubber, need to get it while it is hot, and it requires tartar sauce., A few minutes later, both showed up with tartar sauce. and looked at me disapprovingly. I think I might have been scolded, had I showed any understanding of Czech. My wife and our guide were Asian, they still are actually. I led the way and I think that is part of why we diot seated fast and received OK service. While seated we saw a saw a large tourist group of Japanese people. Young, old, healthy and teetering about. The staff was really dismissive or just ignored them. Some group stragglers showed up and clearly had no clue where to go (the group was in the interior) but staff just ignored them for the most part. Race relations is an issue, and racism is often on full display in the CR, but seeing it so starkly was troubling if unsurprising. I'd go here again, but would reconsider if traveling with my mostly Asian family.

The food was very good, although the pricing seemed rather bellow average. The waiter did not seem happy to be seeing us.

Bad service
Sep 2019 • Friends
Wanted to have lunch with a group of 10 people, but have not received table. We were told by an unpleasant older waiter to come back after an hour, no reservation needed. When we came back, there was still no table, however we have seen a lot of empty spaces. The same arrogant waiter was shouting that we can’t sit down to the empty tables, because it is reserved. Also those guests were kicked out from the place, by an other arrogant waitress, who were already seated with comment that it is already reserved. Then why were we told to come back after an hour when they knew that lot of tables are reserved? We have seen lot of angry guests due to this not really tourist friendly behaviour. Unorganized, below the average hospitability, poor service quality. Do not recommend the place.

Nice Seating Outside
Oct 2018 • Couples
Ordered a beer here before we ate dinner at the restaurant. The pivovary is pretty cool looking, but some view of the brewery operation would be nice, and maybe a few more shirts or other items for sale would be an upgrade. There was nice seating outside.

It seems that the last days are around the corner
Aug 2018 • Friends
In local brochures you can read that the brewery offers daily guided tours, however, once we arrived it seemed that the business was at halt. At the entrance gate a very rude lady rushed us away in local language. In the ticket/sales shop of the brewery the girl was not informed about guided tours and after some telephone calls found out that the manager, obviously the only person who could conduct such a tour, was in Prague. Subsequently we patronised the pub round the corner. Selfservice with no english speaking personal and beer that obviously flows rarely - the taste was a bit stale, contrary to the local beer offer in pubs in Cesky Krumlov.
Overall I suggest that you safe your time and don't make an excursion to this forgettable place.

Good beer and food!
Jul 2017 • Couples
Went here after a walking tour for a beer and a snack. Beer is good and they have a decent selection of food. Stop here if you have time. It's the local brewery from 1560!

Tiny restaurant with home-cooked food
May 2017 • Couples
I stumbled into this tiny place while looking for lunch in Cesky Krumlov, while wanting to avoid crowds. It's a small, cosy pub serving what feels like home-cooked food. It felt like a one-woman operation, so service was a bit slow, but not unreasonable. I had the szegedin goulash with bread dumplings, which turned out to be a hearty, tasty meal (if a bit on the salty side). You should come here if you want a tasty meal without bells and whistles.

Eggenberg Brewery/Restaurant
May 2017 • Couples
This was the best brewery/restaurant we visited in our trip trough Czech Republic.
After we finnished our tour trough the castle, we were recomended by our guide to go there, and try probably the best beer in the whole Czech Republic.
The whole restaurant is located in ex-monastery and the enviroment is amazing, especially from the inside!
We went there and I ordered Pivovarsky Gulash and Eggenberg Dark Beer.
For me that was a perfect combination.
The staff was kind and quick, and prices were excellent!

I would definitely recommend this place!
Cheers!

Simply the best

On our last day in the town we went to the brewery to have dinner. It was super. Friendly stuff, fast service, great local beers, and delicious meals, for resonable price. Really recomended if u want to have a nice lunch or dinner in the oldtown.
