Description: Excellent Czech cuisine, great atmosphere and best beer in Brno. The famous Stopek’s Beer House has always been one of the pillars of Czech social and cultural life in Brno. There has been a pub here since the second half of the 19th century. It became famous with the arrival of the new owner, the genius Jaroslav Stopka, who took over the original Jonak’s Beer House in 1910. Period advertisements always declared that the best Pilsner beer could be had at Stopka’s. The pub retained its character and atmosphere even after its extensive modernisation. The author of the facade of the beer house is Czech painter and graphic artist Lada Novak (1865 – 1944), a well-know Prague bohemian and also the author of the decorations on the U Fleku Pub in Prague, was also repaired and renovated. Pilsner Urquell and dark Velkopopovicky Kozel and Birell Light are all on tap.

While in Brno we decided to try different place to eat and saw Stopkova...we remember place as a old fashioned pub full of smoke but it is not the case anymore...went inside and got place in non smoking section on the first floor... Which is great and hard to find in Czech republic...
Place is renovated ...very nice and clean...toilettes were super clean!

Service was very friendly and professional from the start to the end....

Appetizers... Pate..meat plate... Very good!

We each ordered different kind of soup and have to say..all were very good but winner was garlic soup with croutons and stinky cheese ( tvaruzky)

Rest of the food was just great..we can not write about all of it since we went back again and again and tried as much as possible while in Brno... Duck..schnitzel from turkey..Moravian and Spanish bird, goulash ... Our mouth is watering just when we think about our visits...

We will be back for sure and we are recommending this place to everyone who loves food and wants to try Czech food on top of it....wooow..very impressive !

I spend a lot of time in Brno on business and can easily spend every night here for dinner. Pays to call ahead for a reservation as it gets busy. Restaurant food in a pub atmosphere. My number one in Brno.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. The building is old and interesting. It is very central and lively. The atmosphere is that of a pub and they serve traditional czech food (which is heavy). The portions are large. The prices were reasonable.
