Had it not been for the disastrous service we received, our impression would be so much better. We came as a big group and had reserved a table. It took long for us to get menues. Every time we asked our waitress for something, she...would literally roll her eyes. She seemed bothered by us and it was not very pleasant. The food was good and beer great, so its a shame we were dissed every time we ordered something. When we were leaving my colleague asked her to give our complimenta to the kitchen. She rolled her eyes so bad they are probably still in the back of her head...More

Found it by accident in one of the arcades so popped in for a drink and ended up staying the evening. Arrived about 6pm and it soon filled with groups of locals for after work drinks. Eventually had food, plate of chicken wings and a...beef salad. Lively and busy but not overwhelming so and service superb, these people are true professionals. Stopped a potential pub crawl but thoroughly enjoyable. Word of warning, beware of the absinthe.More

If you´d like to avoid the ovious tourist traps at the Venceslas Square try Hospoda Lucerna, just a few steps away from the square, on Vodickova, in the cellar of an old galleria with among other things a cinema. Hospoda Lucerna is a very rustic...restaurant, far away from white table cloths and supple servants. Here the food is substantial (and well tasing), the beer great (and cheap) and the service head-on (but friendly). And the bill won´t disturb your peace of mind... So, if you opt for a geuine Czech establishment Lucerna could be a good choice.More

We came with a group of colleagues. The location is nice. The food was OK, but the service was very very slow. In the meantime, we were promptly served liters of beer.

This little gem has been on my visit list since I first went to Prague in 2007. Consistantly good food served quickly at a great price. The wait staff are friendly and helpful and its nice to eat with the locals. Lunch for the two...of us with wine came to 15 quid. Give it a try.More

Went here because it was recommended by a friend and it was perfect for our group. I wasn’t too hungry so I got a salad and potato soup and it was actually one of the yummiest Cesar dressings I’ve had and the drinks were a...reasonable price as well.More

This cellar restaurant is hidden at the end of the Lucerne shopping passage (ie. arcade) just a few steps down Stepanska from Wenceslas square. We enjoyed the hearty meals and inexpensive prices. Good Czech beer and basic food choices such as a kielbasa style sausage...in a spicy sauce. We especially enjoyed the goulash soup-we had it two nights in a row.More

This authentic Czech pub is just a few steps from busy"Václavák" square. And it's worth to visit. Huge range of draft beers, tasty food ( especially lunch menu), or if you'd rather like have just a bite&beer. All these for very reasonable price, based on...area. Mouthwashing Pilsner Urquell from tank is must try. Service always very attentive, flexible and polite.We always pop in, when visiting Prague. Highly recommended this genuine Czech" hospoda".More

I haven't been in Hospoda v Lucerně for some time. Last week I went there for a simple lunch. Despite the fact that there were only 4 (!) guests in the dining room for at least 150 (!) I had to wait about 10 minutes...for the waitresses attention. She was talking with the bartender. From the menu I ordered pulled pork with mashed potatoes and a ONE glass of the dark beer. Both tasted good, beer had the right temperature. First at home I looked at the bill which showed that I was charged for TWO beers. Considers the low occupancy and a slow pace in the restaurant it obviously could not be a mistake. To make it even worse: for beer which is on the menu priced at 24 CZK they charged me 56 CZK. And this sum multiplied by two - 112 CZK. So I was overcharged by almost 400%. If you would go there check your bill immediately, please.More
