“A Good Place to Eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The first time I stopped in, the waiter made a mistake and I received the wrong order. The second time, I was amazed by the steaks, (probably the best I have ever had - which is saying a lot considering I am a former Iowan). Best of all, on the second visit, if you paid with cash instead of credit card, you received 20 percent off.

“You can smell the food from the door !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

My wife and i visited this restaurant last xmas, the first thing that pulled us inside was the aroma of the food from the front door....we didnt need to finish reading the menu we just just followed the delicious smell down the stairs into want seemed to be a vast wine cellar.

the rustic wooden tables and dimly lit cavern like added to the ambiance, the waiters seemed friendly you must try the spare ribs which at first looked liked a small portions but was full of meat that fell of the bone.

We'll be back again this christmas and i hope nothing has changed...this is a must visit restraunt when visiting Prague.

“Great steak place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

Came here with a bunch of friends as it is recommendedfor steak. Very professional and friendly staff.Restaurant is split in a smoking and non-smoking part, but you have to get through the smoking part to get to the toilet. We all had the seafood soup as a starter which was very delicious. Wide variety of seafood with a spicey taste. For the steaks, we had people going for the rumpsteak and the filet mignon. Both were perfectly cooked and had fantastic taste. Prices are pretty high, but match the quality.of the food.

“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) .
