Restaurant details
Good for: Bar scene, Local cuisine
Dining options: Late Night, Dinner, Reservations
Neighborhood: Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Description: The key to the success of Mad Bar as a mainstay of the Left Bank scene might be the great location close to Kampa galleries and Petrin park, or the steady stream of exhibitions, gigs and parties. Locals swear by the lunch menu, featuring Czech mainstays with a heavy sprinkling of Tex-Mex and veggie dishes thrown in for balance. In the evening, the hotshots of the ad industry and the young architects from the local offices make sure the party takes off.

popped in for a drink around midday,to see what 'all the fuss' was about...slightly overpriced budvar beer was served by efficient barmaid.the place was mostly filled with 'locals',as far as i could tell,most were eating something.nothing on the menu immediately appealed or maybe i was'nt hungry enough at the time.it looked an 'all right' kind of place,surrounded by other eateries<i counted 4> in what seemed an 'up and coming' type area judging by the prices.being alone,i briefly chatted with the staff,who were all 'pleasant enough' to try to speak english.i would've returned had my hotel been closer,

We decided to eat here base don the good reviews from Trip advisor, upon being seated we were asked what made us choose Madbar to which we replied 'trip advisor'. We were then offered a free beer if we agreed to give this restaurant a good review which alarmed me slightly. we did not accept and an unbiased review is below..

The establishment is not outstanding, but its by no means awful either. The guy who served us was very polite and happily translated the menu into English, he was attentive and chatty. The food was good quality and well presented, price is reasonable but we had better food for less money whilst in Prague. Atmosphere is okay, its a bit dark and décor isn't to my taste.

Hi guys. Thanks a lot for your reviews we really do appreciate it. Sorry if you felt we were encouraging you to write a positive review, that wasn't our intention. We're just discovering how Tripadvisor is an excellent tool for helping visitors to Prague find the great places to eat or drink here, and it's great that we have so many positive reviews putting us in such a strong position even among the more serious restaurants here. We had started encouraging people recently to write reviews as the more feedback we get the better we can be, and of course that includes constructive criticism too. The beer was offered just to thank for taking the time to write an honest opinion only, sorry if my bad English wasn't clear. I think to be safe we won't be doing that any more:)

Anyway, we are all glad you still enjoyed your visit.

Firstly, the staff made us feel welcome. Went through the whole menu in english and were prompt.
He asked what made us go there and we said TripAdvisor. To which he then stated if we give him a good review he'd give us free drinks. This review has not taken this into account and is a full picture.
The food was good. Not the best in prague but certainly not substandard. Service was great. Would recommend. Only giving 4/5 due to food quality.

Food was really tasty (you have to try their Mad Ceasar Salad, it's great), prices are low and the climate is awesome (nice choice of music). If you like simple American dishes, that's the place.
Mojitos could be better though, but you should drink beer in Czech, anyway ;).
