Went here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. Very good food and quite cheap. I had pork knee and my companion had the quarter goose. Highly recommended.

We went as a group of 18 on a stag weekend, the beer was really good and very good value, We had a set menu of traditional Hungarian food, out of the 18 i think it was about 30/70 for loving it or hating it. It was different to say the least, we only ate there once. I thought it... More

Legendary pub with its own history, but current time is not so beautiful. Very expensive food with low quality, lazy staff, only beer is quite good. There are many superior pubs in Prague.

Huge plates of incredible food, plentiful and great beer and a really interesting location. Not even that pricy. Would totally recommend.

My wife and I visited this lovely place twice. Needless, to say for any fans of brave soldier Shveik written by Jaroslav Hashek this destination is must to go to while in Prague. The service was excellent and the food was great. We ate twice in this place, ordering every time different dishes. Everything was good and cooked to perfections.... More

Terrible staff... So unfriendly... They treated us so badly... The food was cold... And some of them untasteful... The wine terrible... I will never go there again... Unpolite staff...

No music in the venue, teas served without milk, bread without butter and bill issue without asking for it. Let alone how rude and unfriendly the waiter was. Perhaps Monday isn't his best day. The place was empty, feels desolate, paid 18 euros for a meal that could be better cooked and presented. DO NOT COME. If you are interested... More

I was looking for some authentic place in Prague insiped by Hasek book and I made big mistake by chosing this place. Overpriced and dirty. The worst place in Prague, I would say.
