We have been eating there since 2009. The restaurant has a great medieval atmosphere and is located in the cellar of a building. It has an open fireplace which is also used for preparing the meat.
Unfortunately this restaurant looses quality each time we have been there. We have been there 4 times from 2009 - 2013. The first time it did impress with its great atmosphere. The second time it was one of the best meals we ever had. The 3rd time the food was very bad and the service arrogant and unfriendly.
We just have been there a 4th time, Sept. 2013, and figured out that they have changed their menu, opening hours, staff and owner. Looks like they are trying to make it more interesting for German visitors as the menu now also is translated into German and the menu includes now dishes that also are very famous in Germany such as pickled knuckles of pork ("EISBEIN") and Sauerkraut, fried mashed potatoes instead of dumplings, etc.
Looks like the new owner is trying to make the place a little bit more upscale although the prices are not too upscale. The menu now includes rather international dishes than typical czech dishes. The service was OK.
The restaurant charged us for the bread although we did tell the waitress as we ordered that we do not want to have any of the bread and also did not touch it as we ate. They were unwilling to take it off the bill and told us it would be written in the menu that it comes automatically. In the menu it was written as a side dish that can be ordered, we did not find any note that it comes automatically. The typical Prague rip off...
They also changed the music. Whereas they used to have good music that did not take too much of your attention they are now playing Enya & other music which is a little annoying.
This time the food was ok. The place lives from its atmosphere. We probably will not come back for a 5th time. Every time we have been there we have been almost the only guests. We do not know how this place can survive.
