Description: We are non-smoking small family restaurant focused mainly on Czech cuisine. All of our meals are made without any glutamate, dyes, condiments and other preservatives. 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.

“Our favorite Restaurant in Prague”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Excellent find, thanks to TA. A couple of stops out of town on the tram. We hadn't booked & were fortunate enough to get the last table. Excellent, friendly service. Really nice food. Great atmosphere (80's music being played when we were there which suited us).Clearly somewhere that you are not just treated as a tourist & is frequented by locals too. Nice decor & lighting. Get away from the tourist trap & enjoy this place!

Best place in Prague!
Nice atmosphere, nice people, good food, unbeatable prices!
It is not right in the center but the walk to reach it is really nice and pleasant (along the river).

“Just Okay”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

After reading the reviews and smiling at the name, we made a special effort to have dinner here. It was just okay, certainly nothing to make us anxious to return. My goulash was full of fat and gristle and my husband's chicken was dry. On the plus side, the prices were reasonable and the service was good.

Hello Mrs Christine
Thank you for your review. We are disappointed that we fail to meet your expectations.
We regret that you did not like your meal, but if you tell us about it during your visit at our restaurant, maybe we could do something about it. Also I have to tell you that we made goulash of shin of beef and thats little bit fat meat. But its not possible to make original goulash full of taste without that, but its little bit sad that you get alot of it in one portion. As I say, during your visit we can solve your problem, now we can just apologize you,
and hope that you will visit us again to see that we are ranked right in place. Thanks again.
Best regards TH

“Great Czech experience”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I understand why this is one of the top rated restaurants in Prague. Sometimes you want good food at a reasonable price, authentic experience and decent service. U Kroka gives you all this at a tremendous value. Beware of the giant meat platter ( forget what it's called) its absolutely huge and delicious ... You just need help eating it. Service was over the top friendly ... They made us feel like regulars, which we are not but would be if we lived here

“Outstanding authentic restaraunt”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Good food, good beer, good atmosphere, outstanding value for money. If your in Prague this is defiantly worth a visit, I would recommend making a reservation, we were lucky enough to get a table without but within 10 mins of us being there the restaurant was full, this was on a Sunday evening at around 1830.
