I came here to Prague with my daughter for a few days city break and after lots of lovely sightseeing we wanted to finish our trip away from all the other tourists and enjoy some real traditional food. After doing an internet search we found...this restaurant called Svejk. The food was amazing and we were very pleased to see they had a gluten free menu to match the regular menu. We couldn’t have found a nicer place to eat and relax on our last day.More

The food was really good and it was reasonably priced but the front of house staff were a let down. Most places I went to in Prague were friendly and would go out of their way for you but this was really poor customer service....It was Sit down, what do you want, here's your food, bye kind of attitude.More

The waiter was really rude with everyone, with no reason... there were 12 people in total and the old guy (the only waiter) was really rude... as soon as we arrived he did not say 'Good evening' or 'hello' and not even a smile... he...just pointed a table... when we sat he throw the cutlery on the table and left... You could not really enjoy the food with the weird vibe created by the waiter... I would have left the restaurant after 5 mins because of him... but we staid just because of the Gluten Free Czech option (THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD DEFINITELY IS NOT WORTH THE WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EXPERIENCED IN AGES)... Definitely a place to avoidMore

We try it yesterday and the food was good but the 2 old staff was unpleasant... Try to rip off and give taxes if we pay with credit card.

God knows how we found this place, but we was so glad and satisfied! We had huge plates with different selections of local food! It was absolutely delicios and portion was more than enough. The atmosphere is old-fashioned but gives a nice vibe for the...place!More

The service was horrible and took over an hour to get our food done. The prices are high for the quality of the food too.

An excellent choice for both coeliacs and non coeliacs. Traditional Czech food as well as basic pub grub. Good sized portions. Hubby really wanted the GF apple strudel but was too full so we’ll be back for sure! The staff were very friendly, good service.

With two of us gluten free we wanted Czech food and found this place. Couldn’t eat it all though as SO MUCH FOOD! Meat, cabbage, potatoes, bread and dumplings. All gluten free. Oh and gluten free beer too. Lovely.
