In general good food, but goulash dish had very little meat in it. Nice homemade lemonade. Good atmosphere

Been here many times. The food is always the same - very good, big portions, never a hit or miss. The restaurant is located among old, charming villas between a forest and a small park. Not exactly in the city center or near the colonnades...but worth the walk! You won't get rude staff or overpriced menu. Walk up the hill and enjoy! I would say my favorite item on the menu is the grilled pork loin with toasted bread. Massive piece of meat, always grilled to perfection, never dry. The goulash with potato pancakes also tastes great if you want something more typical. Beer is Prague's own Staropramen, not a Pilsner, but tastes good. When in Karlovy Vary, do a little cardio, take a walk here and you won't be disappointed!More

Several meters above the city center level, located in a quiet part of the town (near the famous Carlsbader Cemetery), with a good choice of food both local and world cuisine, Staropramen beer and a bar if not willing to eat

the pavillion is a beautiful and well established restaurant above the old spa town. With indoor and outside dining it is a great spot. The food is always good. We have gone here for over 30 years. the prices are a bit higher than the...local pubs, but worth it.More

We stopped here on our way to eat fast food because it was so late we figured nothing would be open. This place was open for another hour and we found a spot right on the street so we stopped in. We had a party...of 6, they had an English menu and the waitress spoke English pretty well. They were out of a couple things I tried to order, but I ended up with a delicious risotto. The kids devoured the sausages and schnitzel and the club sandwich was huge. The goulash was not exactly what we expected, but it was also good. Clean bathrooms, nice service. Overall this place was spot on and a step-up from the fast food we had been about to eat.More

Have been to this restaurant three times now. It's close to the hotel I'm staying in. The food is good and not expensive. The staff are ok, not overly friendly but they get the job done. Would recommend the place, but it can get busy...and getting a table without a reservation could be a problem at night.More

We kindly asked the Service for a free table. The answer was very unfriendly. They told us, that there is no food any longer at 7pm. At this moment the guest next to us got their dinner. Very pitty.More

Hello, We are very sorry for your negative experience and bad reviews. On this day, a power failure occurred in the area of Karlovy Vary. The kitchen and the service had to respond to this and to adjust the service of the meals. Sorry, we're...More

Choosed this place following to a recommendation of a colleague from our CZ office. We liked it, therefore, we went there two times. We enjoyed the place. Well decorated, the bathrooms are clean. You can even find mouthwash, cologne and earbuds. The food was delicious....We tried goat cheese salad, one of the best goulash I have ever eaten, beefsteak and trout. I recommend this place. 100%.More

First impression was not good because of behavior of the staff: not speaking any foreign language. But later when food was served( and served quite fast) the impression has changed: meal was delicious! And cheque was very decent!
