I have only been here once so far but will definitely be back. I had smazeny rizek and so did my friend, and the portions were large and very tasty. I also tried a dark beer which I really enjoyed. Service was adequate speed and...the outside seating area was really buzzing on the hot evening that we went. Menu is quite big so there is lots of choice! Excellent location (though it is right by the road, which I know some people are put off by, we had no problems with it and enjoyed people-watching!!)More

One of the most famous places in town. Visited this place many times for different purposes, with family, business dinners. Menu isn’t very big but more than enough. It’s one of few places that works till very late, more suitable for foreign timetable for dinners....Serving food very fast. Place is big enough. Beers are very good. Average price is 200-300 czk per person.More

We spent 10 days in Olomouc and dined here twice; we were very pleased with our meals on both occasions. Serving staff were helpful and pleasant; regular menu had English translation which made ordering much easier. If ever back in Olomouc we would certainly return...to this restaurant.More

If you're going through Olomouc and are in the mood for traditional Czech food and beer in a traditional pub atmosphere, Drapal may be well worth your time checking out. The atmosphere is rustic, with lots of wood and there is a distinct Habsburg vibe...in the decor. The staff is attentive, efficient and polite. My meal of traditional Czech garlic soup (Česenečka) and roasted pork offcuts (Moravský vrabec) tasted just as they should and the Pilsner beer was fresh and tasted just right. The price was quite fair for what we received in both product and service. I really can't think of anything negative to say about the place. Give it try if you're in the area.More

I loved this restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The service was attentive and friendly. Everyone spoke English which helped a lot. I had a type of pork dish and it was delicious. Portion sizes were more like Americans are used too. Amazing beer.

This is a must stop for dinner every time we visit Olomouc. We've eaten here about four times, never with a reservation, but if you can reserve ahead of time for an evening meal, you really should. The menu is also in English and offer...a wide variety of Czech food, Virtually everything on the menu is delicious, whether starters, soups, or entrees.If you've never had Czech pilsner, you must try it, even if you're not much of a beer drinker. Great local old-fashioned atmosphere.More

If you are looking for the typical czech restaurant with good food and beer this restaurant/pub is the right. The restaurant offers variety of typical czech food which is delicious and fast prepared. The typical czech beer is very good choice to the food. The...staff is nice, polite and fast. We had a smoked backed pork knuckle and was great. For 2 person is one piece enough. What i can recommend is typical olomoucky tvaruzek (sort of cheese). Restaurant is big but in the evening is full and the reservation is recommend.More

Czech food comes in many guises. You can eat meat with dumplings, dumplings with meat, pancakes (very like dumplings) with berries, berries with pancakes u.s.w. The list is not very long, and the menus in Czech eating establishments tend to be on the short side...also. But who cares, when they have Losicka cesneka. This is a hearty garlic soup packed with egg, ham and ‘smelly cheese’ – not my description, but what the restaurateurs wrote in their English language version menu. The cheese is indeed smelly, and it trades the garlic punch for punch as you work your way through the dish. A spoon will suffice but you really need a knife and fork to eat this soup, or possibly a shovel, as it is densely packed with good things garnered from all our farmyard friends. The correct name for this cheese is Olomoucke tvarusky, which means ‘almost cheese’ from Olomouc. It derives its name not from its odd flavour, but from the way in which it is made. Blessed are the cheese-makers; starting with skim milk, they end up with a cheese that is high in protein and low in fat, which is why it is so good in soup; it forms the longest and stretchiest cheese strings, up to a foot long if you're not careful. The taste is simultaneously earthy, musky and slightly sour, reminiscent of biting into a fresh grave. In short, not for the faint-hearted. It should ideally be accompanied by Czech Budvar pilsner, the original Budweiser. Not the American version, which is ditchwater.More
