During a stay for 3 nights, I took twice a dinner in this restaurant. First time with working colleagues for a business dinner. second time, the day after alone, because I appreciated the place. As a frequent traveller to Czech Republic, it was a good surprise to see the CZ ambiance Inside. Live music was the most reason for my... More

The restaurant tries to serve Czech food and tries in general look like a typical czech pub. Fails completely. Beer snacks (breat, chicken wings, onion rings) tasteless. Main dishes seem to be reheated in a microwave. Steak was horribly salty. Service is the worst I have seen in years, even for already low Russian standards. The waiter girl seemed to... More

Nothing extraordinary - you have to wait long for your order to be ready, those who came after you but ordered an alcohol and snacks will be served prior to you. Rather average quality of food

We picked this for it's location and we weren't disappointed as we were able to soak up the atmosphere in the pedestrian seat. Outside seating is the way ahead here. But the food was only average and the waitress certainly displayed a 'couldn't be bothered attitude'. Shame really as the location is great. Likely the management don't care too much... More

We had read the restaurant reviews beforehand and had decided on trying Pozavchera and Mindal'. Unfortunately Pozavchera was full (the food we saw looked wonderful) and my husband thought Mindal' was too far as we were rather late so we took pot luck with this Czech restaurant without checking it out first for reviews. Well serves us right since there... More

Nice place. Relaxing, fun. The ice cream desert was delicious. As one who lived in the Czech Republic, though, I could say that I was disappointed with the Czech-iness. It definitely felt more Russian.

Good beer selection (no Guinness, though). Tasty food; not much czech, though. The kitchen is slow. Live music (a jazzy girl and a boy on a piano) -- ok, although a bit loud. And you would expect a Czech music in such a place, right? Still, very nice, worth visiting.

Good food, many kinds of beer and the waitresses dressed the way... u know... like those girls from oktoberfest... and when they are holding your beer in their hands it seems they have four beers but not two at the first glance. )) A bit expensive though but a chance to feel Czech spirit is worth it.

Pros restaurant: nice decor, wardrobe. Cons: The only smoking lounge, a strange kitchen. The chef only distantly has an idea of ​​Czech cuisine. For example, there are no dishes garnished with dumplings and sauerkraut in the menu. The quality of food and beer (Czech?) is also very average. I do not recommend eating here!
