We went for a Sunday lunch with friends, we were 7 adults and 4 children. We arrived just a bit after 12:00 and had ordered 4 soups by 12:15. Only after asking the waiter how long will we have to wait were the soups served...at just before 13:00.
Then the empty soup bowls just sat there, even though the waiter "checked" our table. Again, we waited and waited for the main dishes to be served. When I asked what was taking so long, the waiter told me that it all has to be cooked, and that there is only one cook in the kitchen. But when I took a look at everything on the menu, it was all "hotovky", all were foods that must be cooked beforehand and heated and plated to serve: Svíčková, guláš, koleno, hovězí líčka, etc.. No real "cooking".
The food was ok, whoever cooked it does know how to cook. But the overall organization on how it gets to the customer quickly is a disaster.
It does not help that the waitstaff spends lots of time at the bar talking and laughing while your glasses are empty and you have your empty plate in front of you for 30 minutes (some of the plates were not cleared even when we were leaving). Sloppy. No, not sloppy, the waitstaff just did not care, and they clearly showed it. Even after speaking to the owner and the waiter to give them some honest feedback, the waiter still forgot to bring the water that we had ordered. The waitstaff really sent a clear message that they do not give a sh-t.
It is a real shame, the place looks nice and must have cost a bundle to furnish. But I cannot recommend, nor will we nor our friends go there again. I remember when I have been disappointed in restaurants in the past, at Černá Ovce, I left slightly pissed-off as well as disappointed.
Oh, and if you are looking forward to some of the specialties that they list on their website, prepare to be disappointed since what they are serving may be considerably less and different than what they list on their website. And do not look forward to the "home made" bread. Its clearly not home made, even though they slice it about 3 cm thick. Very, very amateur across the board.More
Place looks good, however the service and food not at all. Ordered cold starter - waiting time long and we had to return it as it was not edible. People at the table next to us done the same... we have not even wait for...main course as most of the people around were not happy with the quality and some returned it...More
We went with a group of friends for a brunch and were truly disappointed: very ordinary food for a relatively high price. More to this, as it is a farm, sitting outside means listening to various loud jobs done in the building site of the...farm - we didnt hear our own words for more than an hour.
The service was, however, good, pushing my overall evaluation to 2 stars.More

We are sad for your dislike. Your brunch including the prices were pre-ordered. They are not high, but corresponding to our level (all is homemade).
Your reservation was inside in the lounge, but you changed and it was your wish to sit outside (althought it...More
Im living in Pilsen just few months, but i can say that this place is just amazing. Also for the families, because they have Zoo for children, Horses and now, when will be nice weather you can sit outside. They also provide excursions for children....Very family friendly restaurant. The food is amazing. I had beef cheeks and it was delicious. Sometimes you have to wait longer for service, but maybe we should more focuse on the quality and this amazing atmosphere in this place. They have also selections of beer from small breweries and very good elderflower lemonade. Higly recommended.More
