Simple and nice dishes, but they have to change the decoration of plates and the menu card. I drink two different beers but had exactly the same taste. Traditional and friendly... Unfortunately they dont speak english although many tourists visit it!

I have to say that I'm thinking is it OK to tell you about this great place or to leave it for myself. Food is absolutley amazing, typical Czech cuisine for a very fair price. Place where you can meet real Prague people, not like in centre of town where is all packed with tourists. My personal favorite meal is... More

We found this place with favourable reviews on trip advisor. This place did not live up to those favourable reviews. Located on a back street, the bar/restaurant offered an authentic local atmosphere - the garden was pretty busy and people seemed to be enjoying themselves. When the waiter took our order, he seemed unsure of what was on sale, and... More

During the day they have cheap basic lunch specials. It's non-smoking during the day. At night it gets smoky. They have a huge beer garden in the back and the Czech food is good and traditional. We don't go here often bc it's not dog-friendly. Not the friendliest service but hey, what do you expect? Actually I think there's a... More

Portions are huge, meals are really tasty and inexpensive. They have a really nice outside seating area at the back, so don't be fooled by the regular "bar look" from the street side. You'll forget your in the middle of a city. Staff was friendly and helpful, although their English is not the best. Worth a visit if you're in... More

Very good food. If you want to eat cheap (100czk for soup and main course) and drink local beer this place will be very nice for you.

Best place in Zizkov for summer lunch when you are at work. You can create your own menu for best price. Nice garden here!!
