The service is good and fast, the waiters are Nice and smiling and the café is in the center. The only weak point is the gulasch.. it was delicious but I think that for the price only 4 little pieces of meat it’s not enough!...Anyways thanks for the hospitalityMore

We came in for drinks and the servers were lovely. Great sense of humour! Prompt with drinks. Never had to wait to be served. Music was great! Unexpected to hear Eminem but it was very welcomed. Had a blast! Definitely recommend!

First night in Prague for the first time ever and came across this gem of a restaurant. Super friendly staff that couldn't do enough for you. Always made sure we had a drink. Lovely relaxed atmosphere before the arrival of the food. And oh my...what a joy that was to taste. Delicious local produce which looked as good as it tasted. Would throughly recommend a visit to this restaurant.More

Went here for a dinner while walking through the city. We were lucky to get a seat since it got very crowded afterwards (it was a Thursday). Service at the restaurant was very good , mostly quite efficient and fast with some delays at the...end. I had a great veal irloin in a traditional Czech sauce with two types of knedliky (bread dumplings). This was quite a nice flavourfull dish. I also had some side salad which was okay. As usual they had the standard draught beers like Kozel and Pilsner which were great. Price is a bit on higher side for Prague but still quite fine. Worth a visit in any case if you want to try traditional Czech food.More

Great for a casual night out with friends... Service was great we visited with our friends during a long weekend break for a drink then returned later for an evening meal. Great Service and hospitality and everything was spotlessly clean. Barbara served us on our...first dinner visit, really helpful and friendly and gave good advice on options available including a reasonably priced wine that was superb. Location a little out from the main square but well worth a visit , so much so we returned another night and had an equally good experience with fine cuisine. Thoroughly recommend.More

The Restaurant-Cafe Svateho Vaclava is conveniently located on Wenceslas Square. It's deceptively large - rooms on 2 levels. We went there for lunch and shared a traditional Czech meal of goulash and sausages. Both delicious and more than enough. The service was friendly and efficient.

I went on Sunday evening, with my wife for a late dinner. We were both tired and hungry from the days activities, and the restaurant was very busy, we almost didn't go in, but we saw a few empty tables and we are very greatful...that we did.. The first waiter met us by the door, he didn't seem to happy that we were there, led us to a very small table in the corner. while we were waiting for the menu, we noticed a couple of larger tables. We asked the waiter if we could change, because we needed the extra leg room., he said no, and didn't say it too nicely, we tried to discuss with him, but he wasn't budging. When he went away while waiting for us to choose our food, we saw that another waiter wasn't happy with the first waiter for some reason, and they were looking at our table. Then the second waiter came to our table and asked us if everything was OK, and we again requested a larger table. The second waiter, who was very friendly, told us "of course" and led us immediately to a larger table(which was much more comfortable for us, as we also needed to relax after a long day) He was very funny, and he smiled a lot, it made us forget the first waiter, who didn't make us feel welcome or comfortable. I think the second waiter said his name was Valstimar (I do apologise if I didn't say his name correct ) we asked him if he could recommend something for us. He was more than happy to, he recommended the Pork Knee, and Beef Gulash. Both of which were very tasty and satisfying. Plus he even brought us 2 shots of a local liquor, for free. Thanks to him, we had a great experience, and when we come back to Prague again, we will definitely be back. Thank you for the very friendly service and the warm feeling as we left. Thank you.More

Just arrived in Prague on a 4 day trip, was walking passed and saw a table outside that was free. A few drinks afterwards and I’d became a sort of start point to our longer evenings. Staff were polite and quick. Got used to the...big head on the beer as didn’t expect that 😎. Food was tasty. Well worth a sit in the sun with a beer or a Gin…More

Not really. There are some meals that will suit, however, it’s quite difficult to explain this concept and expect a completely gluten free dish.
