Found this place tucked away just 2 minutes walk from the main shopping street. Its downstairs and has 3 small rooms with a little bar. We were a group of 11 people and we had a whole room to ourselves. The staff is young and super polite. It has a nice non touristy atmosphere. The beer on tap is great.... More

This restaurant has been around a long time and there are some interesting pictures on the wall to consider. I've eaten there a few times and I would say the food is traditional and wholesome but not exceptional - if you want to try steak hache, and you should this is a good place to try it.

Big surprise for us were portions. Food portions were really huge. Food and beer tasted great - we like it. Prices are fine as well. If you want to enjoy great food, big... More

This place has the ambiance of a bar and the staff really do not speak a lot of English so go with that in mind. However, should you be brave and wander in... you will be rewarded! The food is excellent - traditional Czech home cooking! Make a reservation ahead of time as the place gets full with locals. We... More

We went there with my children after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. It should be ranked well because of reasonable prices of the restaurant. Yes, that's true. But the service of a short brunette waitress was so rude. Probably, she was expecting she would get fired if she provided polite service. Though I was planning a 0 tipping, -probably... More

Really big portions in reasonable prices. We had rib-eye steak with peper and dry potato sauce, pork steak with green and red beans, potato pancake with mixed meats and... More
