Only read Tripadvisor after ordering a drink so had very low expectations.

The menu's did not have prices, but the waitress quickly produced one with prices when asked. The meals were average, and prices were high but not as high as I was expecting having read the other reviews. There was also no cover charge as had been mentioned in other reviews.

Service was actually good. I think it is an okay experience if you get prices up front and know what you are in for.

We've never had more expensive pizza in our life (not in London, Amsterdam or Italy). It was december and the heating was not on. Waitresses were dressed in jackets and scarfs. The quality Of food was really bad and the restaurant does not accept cards! The closest cashmachine is 10 minutes down the hill so altogether bad experience. Do not recommend.

We stupidly didn't check trip advisor until we had sat down in a very odd restaurant. No prices on the menu! Luckily we saw what others had said and asked the price of everything before ordering and didn't touch the stale looking crisps. A weird dining experience we hope not to repeat.

We went into this place because it looked warm and cozy and it is conveniently located next the castle. We made the mistake of ordering our drinks before we looked at the menu and found it strange that there were no prices. At this point we thankfully checked tripadvisor and were put off by the terrible reviews so decided not to order food. Our bill came 220 which is about £8.50 for 2 very sugary hot chocolates. There was an additional 10% charged on top of this and when we queried it the waitress told us it was tax. I then asked her to show me the price list and she conveniently had it hidden behind the counter which confirmed the lower price. She then back tracked and said that they had put their prices up but hadn't printed a new price list yet. I looked closely at the price list and in the small print it said there will be a 10% service charge added for you satisfaction, before she finally admitted that it was a service charge. As I wasn't satisfied I refused to pay this out of principle.

Suckered by the smiling waitress and no prices on menue routine. The bill for 2 mediocre pizzas, Vienna Schnitzel and a pork and potato dumpling creation, plus 3 iced teas and a beer reached 2,409 CZK, 89 GBP - far higher than comparable dishes in near by restaurants. Be warned! The only thing mystical here is the bill. Spoilt last day of otherwise great 3-day break in Prague.
