Just come back from Prague. This hotel is situated on Old Town Square, so very good location. Prices were ok, service was ok, but the food wasn't great and the portion size was small.

Do not believe the "special offers" from the signs outside.
They offer 400 g Goulash for 200 CZK, that is with the loaf of bread included.
This makes it more expensive than other places.

My date said the Goulash didn't have much flavor and the bread was soft, not baked in the oven so it got soggy very quickly and there was hardly any goulash in there!.
I myself had the potato soup in a loaf of bread, also flavorless and soggy. A real disappointment.

This restaurant wants your feedback but become rude when it's not positive.

I've been to Prague many times and this must be the worst place I ever had my dinner.

The decor is quite kitsch and made to look shabby and cozy but the euro techno blaring out from the speakers really makes you want to leave this place as soon as possible.

This place does not serve dark beer, which is a must when you're in Prague in my own opinion.

Save your money and go to Mlejnice (Check the map for Kozna, it's in an alley behind the old town square).
Even if you have to wait for a table for 20-30 minutes it will be worth it for their flavorful, amazing and slightly larger beer Goulash (for 169 CZK). Trust me.

I choose this one because nothing else was opened in the Xmas eve night. Staff was very friendly, the food was very tasteful, I tried the Roasted Duck, was nice... Environment is good as well as the location, but the prices are not fair. Most expensive beer drank in Praha.

have visited this place on 24.12. Cheating have began from this that garners wasn't included in main courses, but in menu was written that garner are in. 2 kinds of beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mother of God in smallest coffee they have larger assortment. They don't show drink card and it's very hard to know how much cost beer. I have ordered black tea with milk an i have become cheapest bag tea for 60 CzK, beer was cheaper:) My food wasn't good, not enough salt, asparagus was not pilled and watery. and like in other comments are writed you most pay for everything and your bill grove up. to exaple for table set we have pay 200 CzK extra. Staff dont speak foreign languges well
