“Overpriced food, mediocre quality meat and bad service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

This is a typical cavern restaurant, nothing out of ordinary and quite dark inside. I ordered some appetizer which never came and the food took an awfully long time until it was served (well, we saw people coming after us finishing their food and leave). When the main course finally came the waiter mixed my order with a similar one(but cooked differently). That wouldn't have been the problem if the steak I got would have been chewable. I was expecting a better quality meat considering the cost of the rib eye steak - 398kc ~ 16eur (for comparison the Florentine steak costs ~ 40eur for a kilo, so 1/2 would have been ~20 in Italy!!). After long fight with the meat :) I gave up. I tried also the Filé mignon from a friend's order which had much better meat for 100kc more. Overall, the restaurant is overpriced for Prague/CZ prices, I'm sure there are better steaks out there with lower prices. The service was a complete fiasco so they should be replaced. Not recommended! The cook seems to be doing his job but everything else is missing (consistent good quality meat for all steaks and good service, better atmosphere) .

“Good atmosphere but a bit expencive drinks and food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

There are several halls in this restaurant, with details referred to Latin America.
Menu also has "Latin America" trend.
Staff is friendly and service is Ok. Prices are a bit high.

“Nothing special with terrible personel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

I was over there few days ago. Food was quite good but prices are rather high. In my opinion you can easily find the same quality for less money (e.q Jama Ostrovni). Design is nice and oryginal but there is very limited light inside. It is really hard to read menu.
But the biggest problem of this place is stuff. They are not helpful, slow and not nice at all. Do not ask, they do not help you. The simpliest request is a big issue. If you have easy question you have to wait for answer for few minutes (they have to go and ask some better oriented person). I think they are all relicts of the previous, communism times.

Just do not waste money over there!

“Really nice steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

We arrived late to the city and found this restaurant. Although we walked in at around 10 o'clock we were served with a smile and the Pork fillet that we had was delicious. Food was plentiful and very cheap. Excellent value for money away from the tourist area. This restaurant is a steakhouse that is accomodated in a large cellar. Its a large place with bar and dance floor and had a good atmosphere.
