We ate there only soup and paladschinken, but they were amazing. I can just recommend the garlic soup with crunchy breadpieces. Wooooow, was delious!!! And the top of all was the "palaschinken"= "pancake" with nuts and icecream and a bit of warm butter. A dream...for people who like sweet food !!!More

Easy to find just of the main road and between two p[arks the restaurant offers a wide ranging selection of Czech specials.

Lunch in this hotel was a part of pre-booked tour to Karlovy Vary. We were supposed to eat there at 2 pm but when we arrived the restaurant was full of Chinese tourists and we were told to come back in 30 min, not much...but by that time all our group was really tired. I had a salad, which I wouldn’t called a salad, it was served on an old plate and consisted of few pieces of not ripened tomatoes, some leaves of salad and sauerkraut. I had chicken steak (as it’s called in menu) with some boiled potatoes. For desert we received a piece of cake, which was pretty tasteless, and again served on a scratched plate. If you want to try the taste of the canteen in 80’s this the right place to be. If you want to have a decent meal, look somewhere else.More

This is our second d visit, we were first here a year ago. Nothing has changed. The food is freshly cooked and while waiting we were well looked after. The food was delicious and very enjoyable. There were people sitting outside and inside we had...the place to ourselves, lovely and cosy. A very enjoyable evening thank you.More

On the 31th of December we were among several guests celebrating the upcoming 2016. The place is small, around 4 or 5 tables. You won't see any street crowd there, only those that frequent Charlie every time they are in the town. Everyone seems to...know the owner, Karl, whose hospitality and attention keep luring his guests back time and again. The food is genuinely Czech and simple. You can be sure that the ingredients are of the highest quality as they are being chosen carefully by Karl himself. The wait for the meal can be up to 30 minutes. Don't be surprised as the dishes are not pre-cooked. You can spend the wait savoring a glass of local wine or quenching your thirst with an ice-cold pint of famous Czech beer. Charlie is not your typical tourist restaurant where staff speaks your mother tongue but more of a local gem that lives by its own slow moving time and has that old never changing charm of a cozy café hidden from the main roads.More

I haven't actually had any food at this restaurant, and can't rate the cuisine. Passing by I have walked into the restaurant but found it to be too small, nearly claustrophobic with very strong smell of garlic, which more likely would stay on your clothes...unless you wash it straight away.More

We visited this little Restaurant, English Pub style, centraly located with my wife during our stay Jan. 2016. The Food is freshly cooked and delicious. The prices are resonable, Service very friendly and profesional but it takes ages until they (waiter, cook, owner etc. ONLY...ONE PERSON) deliver your order. Make sure you have had something small to eat, before you go to this Restaurant.More

The restaurant is about 5 minutes walk from the colonnade. It is quite busy and it took a few tries to book a table - the wait was worthwhile. The food was delicious and freshly made. Can't really say much more, except we had a...lovely meal at a very reasonable priceMore

Went to this delightful family run restaurant on 7th January. Small, seating 20, in a cosy room with wood panelling with well chosen artefacts and ornaments. Food absolutely superb! Cooked freshly to order. A little wait but who cares? Who wants to rush a nice...meal? More time to soak up the atmosphere and drink the stunning Czech beer, Staropramen. Chose the chefs speciality starter followed by beef in blue cheese sauce! Mmmmmm! No room for dessert! So impressed, booked again for Friday night! Easy to find. From the Colonnade with Hotel Nove Lazne on your left, turn left at the hotel's Baneo cafe. Charlie's s just 2 or 300 metres along that street. No hesitation in recommending. Price very reasonable for quality of good and service by Karol. Non-smoking!! Bonus!!More
