“nice front building but dirty and bad smelly smoky place”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Near by Prague Castle a rather cheap place to drink smoke and eat.
Place is hold by two boorish guys.
It is not really a restaurant but they serve food to go with beers.
Food is as simple as a typical synthetic sausage with soft mustard, thank can serve also quick cooked ham with two eggs.
Regarding food: pass your way!

Beer is cheap but tables are dirty, old, used and as it is allowed to smoke in public place, the area smells bad even cold or fresh smoking.

“Great traditional drinking hole”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

I stumbled upon this old pub after visiting Prague castle; it is a traditional drinking place that also serves snacks. Although there was a segregation of tourists and locals with the locals having a reserved table the pub had a great atmosphere so much so that it would be easy to spend an extended time drinking beer, especially as the beer tasted so good. The service was initially surly however after a few drinks it was good humoured and pleasant.

Tables and benches at least 30 years old, same old good beer, fantastic feel of Prague as it used to be before tourists came and changed this city for ever. Do not miss,

“Old time czech pub”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Everybody who likes Czech beer culture should visit an old time pub like this. Beer is great here, you can also get simple snack and the atmosphere is magic.

“Classic Czech pub”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Had some great nights in this pub meeting interesting Czech people and drinking lots of their excellent Kozel lager.

It doesn't have the following: food (well none worth trying anyway, come here to drink go elsewhere to eat), a non-smoking section, tourist friendly 'have a nice day' english speaking staff, tourist rip-off prices, fake tourist music.

What it does have is great beer at super cheap prices, a genuine locals pub atmosphere and stacks of history. If you learn a couple of Czech phrases like hello and thank you, you should have a great time here.
