I have directed friends, foreigners, teams and companies towards this establishment because the cook was a genius. Some time ago they changed the Cook or management imposed bad quality standards and everything is very bad compared to how it was for a long time. You used to order moravske vrabec and got a nice big piece of meat with nicely... More

Nice beer hall just off Freedom Square in the heart of Brno that does good beer. Only popped in because I had time to kill, but staff were very friendly and really enjoyed my beer. Well worth checking out.

Restaurant with interesting role in Czech social life. Good location in the center of the city. Welcoming ambience, maximum seating capacity, casual interior design. Definitely a place to meet with friends or family. Smoking or non smoking areas.Good and tasty local food. Staff in serving very quick. I recommend moravian sparrow or "svičkova" and a glass of dark beer.

nice place to go, with nice people inside, but they were smoking and this is not helping at all while you're trying to eat

This restaurant is centrally located and serves Czech favorites along with some other options. We ate here several evenings and had duck, goose, pork and pork ribs. The bill each evening was about 25E including wine/beer and tip. Everything was delicious and filling. The wines are also local and very good as is the beer. There is a non-smoking area... More

I've been there a couple of times. The place is very nice, it's huge, there is place for smokers and non-smokers and PLENTY of room (it's like a mansion compared to some of other places in Brno). It's located in the centre, few minutes from the main square if I remember correctly. The first time I went with a big... More

Beautiful building, modern Czech interior, quick service, clean toilets and above all : delicious Czech cuisine with slow cooked pork, spinach pancakes and even gnocchi with gorgonzola as Italian intruder tasted nice. We will definitely come back next visit!

The famous Stopek's Beer House has always been one of the pillars of Czech social and cultural life in Brno. There has been a pub here since the second half of the 19th century. It became famous with the arrival of the new owner, the genius Jaroslav Stopka, who took over the original Jonak's Beer House in 1910. Period advertisements always declared that the best Pilsner beer could be had at Stopka's. The pub retained its character and atmosphere even after its extensive modernisation. The author of the façade of the beer house is Czech painter and graphic artist Láďa Novák (1865 - 1944), a well-know Prague bohemian and also the author of the decorations on the U Fleků Pub in Prague, was also repaired and renovated. Pilsner Urquell and dark Velkopopovický Kozel, Fénix and Birell Light are all on tap. The head chef at Stopek's Beer House, Matěj Kovacs, recommends the excellent rosemary flavoured roasted lamb hock.
