Nice place in a great location, but one of my food orders was a huge disappointment. The cheese plate was overpriced and flavourless. I'm Czech and enjoy all levels of restaurants in Prague, so I know what to expect for different prices. The 290kc cheese...plate consisted of two tiny blocks of mold with no flavour along with 2 crackers that can be bought at various shops in the city for a few crowns per cracker. I wonder who would me more offended by this menu item as it was prepared: Czech or French customers.More

My family and I came to Červeny Jelen for lunch and we loved it! We ordered various types of meat plates such as: Beef ribs, sirloin steak and beef tartare. All the food was exceptional and a pleasure to eat. Of course there was great...czech beer and some good desserts. The restaurant is very nice with two floors of tables, a bar, an open kitchen and various original decorations. The waiters were very kind as they suggested us some meals and spoke perfect English. Not the cheapest dining option in Prague, however quality of food, service and location stood up to it. We enjoyed eating here and we recommend to visit the restaurant once in a while.More

Very loud acoustics but the food and staff were awesome. Eclectic mix of traditional Bohemian and interesting dishes in a former bank. Very crowded the day we arrived but were able to sit at a community table and enjoy the flow of the place. Great...design. Wish we stopped in sooner as we’d have eaten her twice for sure.More

A classy place with classy food and great beer. A must try place when in Prague. The sharing plates were great and beer seemed better tasting than other places we dined at. Want to return to try more of the menu. Cheers from Down Under.

We had an amazing time and the food was awesome at Červený Jelen. We are from Melbourne Australia we were told by friends to eat there and so glad we did. When you are visiting Prague make sure you dine at Jelen and don’t forget...to have a beer” best beer I ever had in my life. They have Authentic Czech food and the cakes delicious. You can’t missed it at the back entrance in the laneway you can see the flying red stagsMore

Big restaurant suited for large groups in the centre of Prague. Very good beer and fast service. Not so good for a romantic evening for couples.

Went for a meal with two friends tonight. Staff are really friendly, desert was amazing and of course excellent beer. However I ordered the Wagu burger- a whopping £23 (720czk)! And it first came out not as I asked it to be cooked. Was like...raw mince on a burger roll, and when it came back the second time, it was still not as I asked it to be cooked and I could only eat half. My friend ordered a small brisket and we were charged a large. I would say say that when it comes to food this place seems to a tourist trap. No suggestion from the waitress to remove this from the bill, after half the burger I had I felt sick. Really think the food has let this place down. Was looking forward to this meal too. I have had better burgers in Prague for cheaper and a better atmosphere from staff especially when something has gone wrong, which is very rare I will admit! The staff changed their tune and were quite rude when I said I was not happy with the burger. I was Surrounded by three staff asking what was wrong with the meal. They then warmed up later after ignoring our table for about 30 mins. If you want to pay through the nose for inadequate food this is the place to go. If you don’t. Do not eat here but do go for coffee and cake or a beer.More

Visited this place again with my friends. Beer is good, food tasty (but on the pricier side), but service lacks speed. Waiting time for drinks was long... Although atmosphere is nice, this place is beautiful

So during my 9th visit to Prague in the last 10 years on the first Saturday of December 2021 I chose Cerveny Jelen as the place to have my Saturday evening meal. I was not in the slightest disappointed. I have visited Cerveny Jelen before...on my last visit to Prague in Dec 2019 however that experience i felt was a bit rushed as we dropped in with no booking and so could only have a table for 90 odd mins. This time me and my friend made a booking in advance in the UK and had the table from 7 through to close. An old bank converted into a fine Czech cuisine restaurant with Tankovna Pilsner Urquell on draft what's not to like? The service was really good and the waiter was attentive. Food was a bit pricy but well worth it. We both had the Wagyu burger, and the meat was so tender it melted in the mouth, piping hot and the beer came as quick as we could quaff it. So much beer was consumed. The food, the service and the setting just all came together in this amazing meal out package which really marked the visit to Prague. Would i go again? Yes, i would even travel to prague for a couple of nights just to visit here again.More
