“Went here twice in two days...obviously liked it !!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2012

Although the rest of the reviews are not very good, I had a great experience. I went twice in two days to this cafe and had the goulash. :) We were looking for a "quick' bite to eat and my husband had been there the day before with our daughter. He had gotten the goulash, she got pasta. She wished she had also gotten the goulash. Note about the goulash: it is basically beef in a brown gravy served in a bread bowl. The first time I had it, it had a bit too much pepper for my liking but the meat was tender enough to cut with a spoon. The second day I had it, the meat was slightly tough but the spice was right. So it is a bit inconsistant. Both times we sat outside. The weather was cold but the "patio" was "enclosed" with heaters. They had lap blankets on the chairs for those who wanted them. The wait staff was very attentive. Our glasses were never empty. We were able to linger as long as we wanted. We had a great experience. I look forward to going back in warmer weather to linger more and people watch.

“Staggeringly poor welcome and attitude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2011

We walked in and were not acknowledged at the counter, headed down into the cellar restaurant where a nice old guy was playing piano. Again no one there to welcome us, until the waiter 'flew' down the stairs and asked could he help us. We asked about dinner, he said did we have a reservation, we said no but the place was empty!

He disappeared and grudgingly offered us a 'small table'. The rest of the experience was the same, this guy should not be in hospitality. The next table ordered French fried which he forgot, then told them they had NOT ordered these but if they would like to now order he would get them.

Astoundingly poor atmosphere apart from the piano player, food passable but this guy needs a new career - suggest one with no people skills required.

“Good location; good beer; great presentation; great coffee; poor goulash”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2011

Located at a wonderful position in the old town square, perfect to see what is happening on the stages that host events often held there. We sat so we could have some drinks and food while we soaked up the atmosphere.

Beer was fine, coffee was fine, and feeling a bit peckish wanted a bit of food. Now eating Italian in Prague seemed a bit silly so I tried the goulash. It was presented most wonderfully in a hollowed out bread cob, however the wonder ended there.

Not to my taste, too much pepper, meat to tough and gristly; the quality of the food did not match the image of the restaurant. Oh well, it was a bit stupid ordering czech food in an italian restaurant.
