This is a local restaurant, for locals. Do not expect the staff to speak English, although some do. Food is delicious! Small portions, but filling. Not expensive at all. lunch for two including dessert and beer costs 13$. I would recommend the beef goulash with dumplings, and get the local beer. For dessert, get the dumplings with strawberries. that was... More

This little gem is a cellar which is reached through a set of steep stairs. Small alcoves surround the central bar area, which makes for an intimate experience and the servers are very friendly. We stopped in on a quiet night and enjoyed a few cocktails as well as the Armagnac tasting. A highlight of our trip!

This was our second visit, our first being exactly two years ago, and it was just a good as we remembered. We tried all of the tasting flights between us and I had the cognac flight. This culminates in one from 1957! If you enjoy tasting fine cognac, armagnac and/or pinneau then this is a must visit establishment. Great value... More

A must visit location in Prague. A few minutes from Charles Bridge but a world away from the tourist bustle. An unassuming shop frontage with a narrow door leading down some stairs into the cellar bar proper formed from a number of cellar chambers. A large selection of cognacs and armagnac available plus wine. Staff are charming and helpful. They... More

Great bar situated way down the narrow steps under the street level. The old well in the center of the floor makes it unique. It is a relatively small space on two floors and it feels quite intimate. We liked it the first time and we knew we were going to come back. it was just as lovely the second... More

My friend and I randomly found U Stare after a long day of walking around. The waiter was very friendly and let us try different wines to help us select the one we ordered. It's a cute underground wine bar. We liked it so much we came back again in the night after dinner! Highly recommend for a good glass... More

We walked by U Stare, which was 2 doors down from our hotel multiple times without paying it much notice. I am so glad that we walked down its narrow stairs to check it out on our last night in Prague. It is a multi level cellar space (which was apparently an old food cellar) that specializes in wine and... More

I recently traveled to Prague with my wife and friends. While the wives were shopping, my friend and I stopped by U Stare Studny on the recommendation of another person. What a surprise we were in for (in a good way). This is a cognac "bar". I believe they also have wine, but it is not a restaurant per se.... More

We spent in this bar few hours, but unfortunately only 2 glasses of wine...Wine list is a little bit narrow, prices are average for this area and waiting time was: more than 30 minutes for cheese and dryed tomatoes (we got it after urgencies), 15 minutes for water and about 20 minutes for waitress (even there were 4 waitresses for...

Neighborhood Profile
Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighborhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighborhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.
