“A nice getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

I had a chance to visit this restaurant more do to the entertainment. A great big restaruant adorned in old Czech costumes...seating or balcony seating overlooking parts of Prague... a big open hearth grill for typical Czech fare. Entertainment on the weekends....definitely worth a visit.

The musicians I heard were originally from Moravia but now residing in Prague. They performed traditional Moravian dance and music (cymbal)

Doing it on your own, one can take the Red metro line to Roztyly and exit the back side of the metro. You will have to walk up a small hill about 50-75 metres. On the back side you can take the paved path or the natural path up the hill...you can see the rooftop of the restaurant...black tiles with orange lettering "Koliba" Also, look for the big Pilsen Urq. neon/green sign on the top.

A great venue for small or big groups.

“Great barbecued meats and live music”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2012

Had a great evening here. Good food, especially the barbecued meats, which are cooked on a large grill in the middle of the room. Excellent live music, very good value for money and cosy atmosphere. Well worth seeking out!

The gnocchi with sheep's cheese starter was one of the nicest dishes I ate in Prague. Decent Pilsner Urquell, good service. The music we heard was a trio (violin, hammered dulcimer and double bass). They played a range of material, with leanings towards folk and gypsy music, but included quite a few reworkings of "old favourites". They alternated playing for about 30 minutes with taking a break for 20 minutes or so, which I thought was an excellent balance. The music is not amplified so it's at a level you can enjoy without it drowning out conversation.

To get there, take tram number 11 from I. P. Pavlova for 3 stops (get off at Nuselske schody). Then walk down the hill for a few minutes and the restaurant will be on your right. Go through the gate, keep going along the path (there were several small chalet-like buildings either side, ignore these, maybe they're used in the summer?). At the end of the path the main restaurant is on your left.

“Fun evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2009

We were booked into the Koliba U Pastyrky traditional Czech restaurant by the desk clerk at the Hotel Galileo. The restaurant is located in a slightly down at heel area near railway
arches - it looked a bit odd but we were welcomed into a cosy and lively atmosphere with locals and some tourists. The Gypsy trio was playing what sounded like authentic music and the general atmosphere was good. The menu contained mostly local dishes with meat the predominant feature. The enormous skewers of meat were cooked right in front of you on an open grill - good value too. The atmosphere encouraged a sociable vibe and we were joined by an Irish couple who like us proceeded to drink too much - we walked back to the city through darkened unfamiliar streets laughing and joking all the way - all in all a memorable evening - thoroughly recommended but take it as it comes!
