Our visit was at the beginning of December. Finally I've taken my time to write a review. We have booked a table in advance, but the place wasn't much crowded that day. Our steaks were very delicious. I ordered a rump-steak with brandy sauce. The...portions are good! But be ready that the staff hardly speaks English. Well, that was not a big deal for us. I recommend to visit this Irish pub!More

Do not be fooled by the Merlins Irish Pub Title, this is a local pub serving fantastic food at very reasonable prices. The portion sizes are fit for the largest of appetites and of excellent quality and very good beer to boot. Service is friendly...and professional and puts many more expensive establishments to shame. A must visit if you visit Prague as the prices and quality are far better than in the City centre.More

Rude staff, cold food,. If you are English or even Irish I would advise avoiding this place like the plague. Staff definitely do not like other nationalities and when we asked for our bill the one member of staff was laughing as our food was...completely inadequate and cold and they knew this. I write an honest review of anywhere I eat, drink or stay at. Be warned this place definitely is not an Irish bar!!!More

If you come to Prague you must come here , for us it was only a 10 minute walk from our hotel , so if your in the centre you may be worth getting an uber ! The steak is absolutely amazing !

Never thought a duck burger can be so great. Yes - duck. Great burger and cheap beer, although it was strange they didn't offer Guiness when I asked what beers they have

This place was close to our hotel which was a 20min walk from the town centre. We liked the atmosphere, staff spoke excellent English and had menus in English although it seemed to be mainly of locals (which we liked). The steak was fantastic!! So...lean, and cooked to perfection. Prices were also lower here than in the town centre. I have put a picture of the menu below with prices. No picture of the steak but the fish n chips I had the following night (equally yummy) They have a small cocktail list with a G&T being 89czk I would definitely recommend this place.More

I went here with family and friends with a empty stomach. To get sure I got full i ordered the "Irish feast", 1kg of different food, everything from mashed potatoes, ribs, chicken and sausages. A really tasty meal. Nothing breathtaking but for sure tasty. Service...as well good, with no added fee on the bill as other experienced. I would recommend it since it have a really genuine atmosphere and nice staff!More

On our recent city break to Prague we decided to visit this Irish themed pub located close to our hotel. Upon entering this dark and dank place with a smell of dogs there were no welcoming words or smile from the members of staff. Funnily...enough we quickly noticed that we were the only patrons, which should have rang a bell. However we ordered our food and drinks from a very miserable waiter who advised that the owner and staff were local Czech people which is not a problem if you put some effort into service and hospitality. Once we were finished we left. No recommendations here I’m afraid apart from give this place a miss.More

We stop there, thinking the food will be nice and we were right food was good but at the end whenever we received the bill they charged us 20 % extras and they cover up as a tax of a tax since it was on...Czech we paid and once back I the hotel the receptionist told us that they overcharged us for something call “tax of a tax”... I won’t stop there and if you do ask the manager to talk to you of the price is not right the price shall include taxes.More

We walked over from Green Garden Hotel and enjoyed a nice dinner. I had the chicken breast with veggies and my husband had the Pepper Steak with green beans and bacon and baked potatoes with garlic cream sauce. Everything was delicious and if only we...could do half stars we’d give this place a 4.5. I admit the chicken was a little dry but that is so common in America that it never surprises me. The menu is very extensive so I’d come back and try something else!More

We ordered beers and aperol spritz, the beer was amazing, the aperol good, they stop serving food and snacks at 10 which was disappointing.

After succesfully escaped (not far from here is one of top Prague Escaperooms) we decided to take some beer and food at Merlinś Irish pub to finish the evening. Nice cellar with a lot of wood, reasonably crowded, not noisy. From menu we had a...goat cheese baked sandwich, very good, I had devil´s fried bread (which is dangerous in some places, consisting of junk meat and a lot of chilli to cover the taste), very satisfactiory, reasonably hot and tasty and a plate of fried jalapeno chicken wings (nothing but the bones remained). We tasted several beers, Guinness (a must in an Irish pub, isnt it?), Merlin dark lager special, KIngdswood cider and Czech He-Goat. All were given in special glasses, well taped, well chilled. The service was simple but friendly and all together we were very satisfied. Beer was for about 2 Euro (Guinness 2,75), the food also reasonable, altogether about 30 Euro for 4 people.More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place and we decided to grab a beer. The service was very friendly and the gentlemen bartender made small talk with us about America. The staff members know how to pour a Guinness correctly (as should be expected...from an Irish bar ;)). We enjoyed the atmosphere and they have comfy couches on the second floor. The bar itself isn't huge but there is plenty of seating throughout. We didn't try the food but have heard good things. Great place to catch a sports game or if you're thirsty!More
