“Good food, poor service, great value overall”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Na Varandach enjoys a quiet, if somewhat desolate location, which helps it from being crowded by packs of tourists albeit it would be a stretch to call it a hidden gem. The rather run down exterior gives rise to a modernly furnished bar style restaurant with a small indoor terrace which is a refuge from the smoky, alcohol infused atmosphere inside. We had no reservations but were promptly seated outside.

Not being a beer drinker myself I can only trust the impressions of my family members that the stuff is very potable, with the unfiltered variety being a good choice for a more sturdy drinker and the mix of light and dark kinds a very lady-appropriate choice. The menu is, as would be expected, heavily geared towards keeping the beer steadily flowing, although there are thankfully a few lighter options available. We had the beer cheese for starters which was flavourful and not overwhelmingly salty. The goulash was almost Flemish in style with a clear bitter backdrop of the gravy well balanced by the airy bread dumplings. Meat was lovely and tender and not at all greasy. Chicken salad featured fried chicken pieces coated in seasoned bread crumbs and arranged in a small basket of melted Parmigiano (of sorts). Again, the dish was well prepared and creatively presented.

The service staff are the main weak point of this restaurant. Rude and arrogant sums it up nicely. I understand this is a 'high-throughput' establishment but they really make you feel as if you're on a rolling band. This takes away from the enjoyment considerably. The attitude whereby you're supposed to feel apologetic for "disturbing" the waiter by lagging with your choices or not completing the entire order in one go is very annoying.

Overall however, with good food at reasonable prices in a setting not reminiscent of a stag party hangout - Na Verandach is a great choice for a casual meal in Prague.

“Staropramen sörgyár”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

At this place you can drink a full range of the brewery. The real attraction is the unfiltered Staropramen.. It does not deserve more than one word .....

“Great place for beer and snack”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The place has superb atmosphere. The food is great, especially BBQ ribs and chicken wings. Great place to hang out with your friends. The music is great and the variets in food and drinks. Coctails are delicious.

“Good atmosphere”
Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

This is the Staropramen brewery restaurant that is listed seperatly on TA. The place had a good atmosphere, it was busy and lots of locals were eating. Great selection of beers (from their brewery) as well as wines and cocktails. Had the Czech specialties off the menu which were very good, 2 large beers, 2 cocktails and 2 main courses for less than 700ck, around £25! Bar was also busy and looked like a long night ahead.

“Have a hearty meal at the home of Staropramen beer”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

This restaurant is at the Staropramen brewery and never disappoints. It has a lot of capacity,but if you want to be sure of a table any evening, book ahead especially if you prefer non-smoking. Food is czech classics: gulas, pork knee, ribs, schnitzel but there are a couple of pasta or vegeterian options too. Beer menu is wide and while this is a restaurant there is no problem to go here just for a beer. It's very informal.
You can get there by metro to Andel or trams 6,12 and 20. And I hear the self guided tour of the brewery exhibit is a nice pre-dinner activity for 1st-time visitors to Prague.

I think the negative review of Kaka is about a different restaurant along the street with the same name. So don't be put of by this.
