I found this restaurant from a travel book in Hong Kong and booked a table for 5 in advance. We were assigned to the table near the fireplace that used for cooking. As it was too hot and suffocating there, we requested to change seat....Yet the waiters were unwilling to do so and just ignored us. Yet I voiced out that I had booked a table long time ago. Finally and grateful we were allocated to a table inside. We did order the famous roasted pork knuckle there. It was just so so. Probably that popularity may not be in consistent with good food and service.More

Rustic style and a big barbeque made a perfect atmosphere. Food was great (enjoyed a mixed grill plate), staff was polite and had no issue that we had our two very young children with us. Not sure if they have child seats.

We had a dinner at that restaurant and are happy about the choice. Food is good, especially bbq dishes, waitresses serve food quickly and keep an eye what customers need. They also have a menu set with soup, main dish and desert that together come...in a good price deal. The place is a popular one, so a reservation may be needed in most busy hours.More

The food was so amazing here that I am still dreaming about it. We had the pork ribs and the pork skewers and both were fantastic. Make reservations because this place is always booked, but totally worth a visit if you like barbequed meat. We...liked the cellar atmosphere here too and everyone was friendly and helpful even though they were sooooo busy.More

I ordered their offer of a day (soup of a day, beef ribs), baked potatoes and a small beer. Soup was not really interesting, but ribs were to die for. Could not eat everything and asked for a doggy bag. They cook meat on open...fire. Paid around 18€. The toilets are not very clean though.More

The best meat in whole country! The quality is excellent and the man who grills the meat is a star!! We had grilled pork knee, mustard, freshly grated horseradish, pickle, pepper, cabbage salad and sourdough bread and the second dish was grilled pork ribs, with...BBQ sauce, freshly grated horseradish and bread. We drank one shot of Slivovice and one of Hruškovice. It is better to book a table as this place is really famous and many people were leaving because they couldnt find available table. It is famous especially for the locals.More

As we wandered in a blizzard through the old cobbled pedestrian streets of Cesky Krumlov, we came across this hole in the wall (cave?) restaurant that wafted out wonderful aromas. We walked in to a half-full dining room, but all of the vacant tables had..."Reserved" signs on them. This is clearly a popular place. Because it wasn't quite dinner hour, we were told to take a seat anywhere. So we sat next to the open fire grill to warm up a bit. Not being super hungry, we ordered an original Budweiser, garlic soup and Strudel. Everything hit the spot. The service was good and everyone in the place was having a great time. We felt like we had stepped back several hundred years in time. So glad we popped in.More

Walked into the restaurant and looking forward to a great meal, we waited at the entrance to be seated but not only we weren’t greeted (the staff did see us when they walked past), they just ignored us as if we were invisible. We waited,...trying to be understanding as they may be busy but nope. They just weren’t interested. Spoke to a free waiter asking for a table and he just stared at us blank, shook his head at us trying to signal us there’s no free seat, not even a smile or a single word. We left. Have some dignity, just walk away and don’t bother. No one deserves treatment like this even for “good food”. I’m sure there are better places that deserve your hard earned money.More

We had grilled lamb chops, Tomahawk pork steak for main and homemade fruit dumplings for dessert. Lamb just melted in mouth and pork couldn't be cooked better. Fruit dumplings were simply perfect! Additionally restaurant has an unique, warm atmosphere and large portions. Special thanks to...Pavel and the whole staff!More
