This restaurant was a lucky find! It doesn't look much on the outside but we were lured by the low prices (eg. 139 czech korunas for a 300gr meal of goulash with a massive bread dumpling). The food was exceptional, very tasty and portions quite reasonable. The staff are very friendly (we were pleasantly surprised in comparison to other establishments). The menu has plenty of options and the atmosphere is quite relaxed. I am definitely going there next time I go to Prague!

From the outside this place may not look like much but go right on in and you will be pleasently surprised. You really can not find much cheaper but still delicious food in the whole town!

The bill summed up to 500 CZK (20 €) including beers, shots, starters and main courses for two. And the food was GOOD! The service was friendly and efficient and the decor and atmosphere nice and cosy with old farming tools hanging on walls and old-looking wooden benches and tables.

I wrote a review a long time ago, which seemed to have disappeared, so I am writing another one. This is a restaurant in Prague where we always have a t least 2 meals while in Prague. Great choice of meals, inexpensive, absolutely terrific ambiance, just perfect. We are already planning another visit for March 2013.

I visited this place 3 times this week and day after day I can say that it's a place to visit if you're looking for good food, nice beer and a fast efficient helpful service and all for only some hundert crowns!
This restaurant is very close to the "Dancing house" so if after the meal you want to walk around you just have to step outside!
This place is built on 2 levels, a smoker area at the entrance and downstairs a the non smoker area.
I preferred the non smoking area preferring the corner tables.
The crew speaks English, Russian and German.
Very smiley and fast service.
Modern music is on air, making the atmosphere great!
Food is lovely, I tested always different dishes mixing Czech food with international cuisine.
Grilled meat is always available as in Czech tradition with a large selection of side dishes.
An advice for stroganoff steak lovers, the way to prepare it here is slightly different then in the Russian tradition using salty cucumbers in the sauce.

We 've been in this place twice during our stay. First day -on Saturday we were very glad beceause of the quality of the food, prices, atmosfere, and the weiter. We spend there about tree hours, after very long walk in cold day. We decided for this long walk next day , because of the good memories previous day, and.. well. Th same soup and dishes tasted diffrent -in fact- worst. The weitress was more intrested with her friends then with her job.Next time in Prague, we won't go so far from the center just to know, how is today?
