To flavor dishes we use just salt, pepper and fresh herbs. Permanent menu starts at 3pm every weekday. The lunch menu is available from 11am till 3pm until then, but with very limited offer and especially for local people. Regular menu is then available all weekend plus we do weekend specials.

“Great local place - thanks TA”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

I took some friends here based on TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. Prices were good for the quality of food, atmosphere and service were good. Seems like a nice little unspoiled local spot that's both nice and casual inside. All three of us guys had the duck with dumplings, and we all loved it.

“Good Introduction to Czech Food”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a wonderful restaurant. If you are staying in Old Town, walk down the river to Vyton, or take the 17 Tram from Karlovy Lazne. The food is really lovely, mixing a Czech influence with the more 'Western' takes presentation and variety. I lived in Prague for several months, and this was a great place to go get a salad or some soup when I needed a break from the heavy meats and potatoes. There is an English menu as well. You may also bump into a number of other Americans because the apartment complex next door houses a number of students from CIEE (such as myself!) I definitely recommend this place, and was there almost once a week.

“U Kroka is not Krok!”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

There seems to be a lot of Trip Advisor confusion over this one. TA routes you to Krok. Follow the address to Vratislavova 12, close to U Semika. U Kroka is very clean, nicely decorated (Modern style), staffed courteously, and an amazing value! We had delicious soups (cauliflower and chicken noodle w/vegatables), a great salad, roast pork w/creamed spinach & potato dumplings, and a chicken roulade stuffed with liver. Everything was great. I'll definitely try to make it back here!

“Worth the walk”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

We went for dinner and after getting lost were pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and excellent food. I had the goulash and my wife had the stuffed chicken, both every tasty. By far our best meal in Prague. 21 euros including 2 beers and 2 glasses of wine.

“Lovely hidden place to eat”
Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

We read about the restaurant in this app and wanted to try it. Make sure you go by the adress of the place! The link in the app can be wrong, because there is a pub with a similar name (Krok) near by. Don't mix it up.
After searching for a decent restaurant in the center of Prague and not finding one, we were positively surprised entering the U Kroka. The place is modern, staff is very friendly and speaks English. The menu offeres a big variety, not easy to choose! The food was served quickly and tasted very good. We had a soup each an a main cousre one with beef the other with rabbit. It was all delicious and the prices are very reasonable. We payed for the food and 2 drinks each 500 czk. Way better than every tourist hotspot in the old town!
