I passed by this restaurant with a few of my Erasmus buddies and decided to give it a try. And boy, we should not have done that. I have never seen more contradictory place. Dont get me wrong, the food - appetizers as well as...main courses - were great and tasty but the staff was outright rude. When I say rude, I mean "we dont want anyone here" rude; particularly, a bold guy was really unpleasant to deal with. Apparently, we were the lucky ones, a couple that sit two tables behind us were ignored completely like they were invisible. They left without a word after 10 minutes and the staff did not give a damn. Stay clear of this place if you do not want to spoil your mood.More

Na Pelke is a great spot for those craving traditional Czech food in a non-traditional setting. Situated on the same property as Strahov Monestary, the restaurant is in an old underground space that used to store beer brewed by the monks. Come hungry! The portion...sizes are generous. I highly recommend the goulash, and whatever seasonal beer they have on tap. I will definitely be returning next time I'm in Prague!More

During our visit to Prague, we visited an excellent Na Pekle restaurant on the premises of the Premonstratensian Monastery in Strahov. It's not far from the Prague Castle and it's definitely not a classic tourist restaurant. You get something extra with your meal here. The...chef, whose name is Dan, cooks with old Czech recipes, so you can try dishes that were eaten in Bohemia many years ago. As an appetizer, we tried "Forman meat" with fresh horseradish. It is a kind of "paté" that ancient carriers took with them on their travels. It tasted great. For main course we had braised beef cheeks with "bramborová litina", which is a potato pie with plums and mushrooms. The food was excellent. To drink, we ordered a light Portuguese "vinho verde" and a cucumber lemonade with bergamot. We will definitely come back.More

Sometimes, the best things you experience is by pure chance. We stumbled upon this terrific place by getting lost. However, what caught our attention initially was not the restaurant itself (it is situated in a veritable cave btw!) but the outside grill garden that is...operated by the same management however they had closed the grill so the staff showed us Na Pekle (the selling point being....it is in a cave). The cave itself being the "least" terrific thing the restaurant had to offer though it did add up to a great "middle ages" atmosphere. The great things first. The meals - as appetizers we ordered "butcher´s" roastbeef, foie gras with truffles and "goulash" soup . I had had my share of slices of roastbeef and foie gras but this was something else entirely. Especially, the roastbeef was served with a sauce, the kind of which I had never had; it was sweet yet it had a pepper finish (really hard to describe however delicious). The soup was nothing like the soups I had tasted in Prague before though its being the same kind of soup. Also, had we known the amount served, we would have ordered one appetizer only. Which brings me to the next great thing, the size/amount of the meals. One cannot leave this restaurant without being completely full. As the main course, we went for beef "cheeks" (sorry I do not know the proper English word) with baked potatoes, dried plums and mushrooms, and slowly-baked veal with "creamy" potatoes. The meals and their side dishes may sound strange, the former one particularly, but these two were one of the best combinations of meat and side dish that I had ever had. The beef came with wonderful sauce that had traces of red wine but plums elevated it to whole other level. The veal was juicy, tender and complemented the potatoes very well; although I must say the potatoes themselves could serve as dish in itself. At this point, we felt like combusting on the spot so we did not try any desserts, although their coffee was quite good. The last but not least is the atmosphere itself. I cannot think of a better place for a date than here: being in a veritable cave, check; wonderful meals, check; the proper lighting, check. Now the "not-so-good" things. I do not want the following to come off rude but the place seemed... a bit "chaotic". The staff was polite and professional in general sense of the term however they seemed a bit "lost". Initially, we received a wrong menu and our beverages got mixed up. The table next to us got a half of their orders, for their orders got entered into a wrong terminal that was linked to the grill place upstairs (eh???) as I understood it. Being nosy, I asked what that was about and I was told that there had been a recent change in management and everything had not had time to settle in... This might explain why you cannot find what we have had on the restaurant menu online. There is a completely different menu and it is quite dull to be honest. The very last thing, they really ought to work on their signs/propagation because it is really easy to miss it. The last thing to mention is the pricing. Considering the sizes, quality, originality - most things in the printed menu I had not seen anywhere in Prague maybe apart from the soup, roastbeef and beef "cheeks" - and tastefulness, they should ask half as much, the least. The price-to-all-the-things-mentioned-above ratio is simply outstanding. We paid twice as much in downtown Prague for half of (all things considered) what we had received at Na Pekle; not to mention staff downtown was generally rude (or we were unlucky)... Final thoughts - if they manage to remedy the "chaotic" things, this would be one of the best places to visit in Prague, and if they do not or you do not care for a bit of chaos with your dinning experience, the quality of meals more than compensates for it.More

LOVED this restaurant...in a 600 yr old wine cellar of the Strahov Monastery (or maybe older). It's dark (candle lit tables) and rustic and if you like history, so cool! We went at 5pm and had the place to ourselves, which made it very romantic....Had the sausages for appetizer and the salmon for dinner. Both were wonderful. Blueberry beer was also good. Service was fast and waiter was very friendly....even showed us around the cellar to point out some of the older/historic parts. HIGHLY recommend.More

The website says that they are open until 9pm daily. We got there at 8:15pm and were told the kitchen closes at 8pm. We were welcome to sit there but we couldn't get food. Nowhere does their website say that you can't order food after...8pm. We would have gone earlier if we had known. The staff wanted to argue with us as we left. It was truly a terrible experience.More

Amazing underground restaurant as Monastery brewery. As you we go down the stairs we came to amazing underground chamber of ex monastery brewery storage centuries old. We were well served by very kind staff. We spoke in English and we didn’t have any problems regarding...understanding each other. Also the golash was delicious but we call that Bograch as there are also potatoes inside. The dark beer was nice as well the brownies were very tasty and with not too much sugar. The prices were pretty normal for Prague standard. The place has no gsm signal, that was also great, so we weren’t disturbed during our dinner. But they have Wi-Fi in case you need connection with outside world. We enjoyed the interior with service and for sure we will come back.More

This is by Prague Castle so we took a cab from our hotel, it was definitely worth it. Note they drop you off at the gate and you walk up the hill, after dark you definitely have to watch your step. We loved this place...and I don't even drink beer. My bf is a beer judge and he said this was the best beer he had in Prague Note they don't brew beer on the premises but monks do brew it off site. Staff was very friendly, bf had beer and while I had wine, we split the charcuterie tray. The cavern setting was romantic, with tables and cubbyholes were illuminated with candles. After we ate the server called us a cab, again you walk down the hill through the gate to wait.More

The atmosphere is very nice and it could be a pleasant place to eat. But I am really disappointed: When I visited with my family (reservation made several weeks before), my top 3 choices of main courses where not available. Also my first choice of...beer and my 2nd choice were both not available (blueberry and new years beer). Since the menu has only a fiew dished to offer and 2 of them were not possible to order we ended up with some pork fat with bread called "spare ribs" which were uneatable. We have not been asked if everything is ok at all. Prices are very high too. Payed 130 Euro for 5 main dishes and 4 starters + 9 0,4l beer. Cannot recommend this place after my 2nd visit.More
