Enjoyed the 'half measure' of beer! Waited 20mins for a baguette. Maybe should have had the goulash bread bowl which they seemed to serve in about 2mins!! Tourist prices and poor service...sorry guys need to try harder to get average!

Food was great. Had the goulash and pork with Czech bread. Beer as with every place in prague was good. Service was quick and polite. Worth lunch or dinner.

Bottom line up front (BLUF). Skip this joint. I'm sure you can find good pizza without being waited on by a rude d-bags and getting charged extra fees. Pizza was delicious, but we were definitely made to feel unwelcome which was the one and only...More

Avoid this place at all costs! Service was rude and slow. Worst of all, the chicken in my sandwich was UNCOOKED!!! Seriously avoid this place like the plague. Typical tourist trap

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch

This traditional restaurant with a rich history is situated in a house built in the 16th century. Not far from the Charles Bridges. Right on one of the most popular tourist routes known as the Royal Way (Královská cesta). Despite this, it has preserved its quiet and relaxed atmosphere. The interior is cosy, in the period style with spectacular vaulted ceilings with fragments of old hand paintings inspired by G. Arcimboldo. In the summer season, the restaurant's large windows are open directly onto the Lesser Quarter Square (Malostranské náměstí) and it is an ideal place for sitting back and enjoying your meal and the atmosphere of Old Prague. Our cuisine is modern and offers in addition to traditional Czech dishes several original specialities with game and duck, as well as burgers and pizza. Menu cards are available in Czech, English, German, Russian, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese. We have PILSNER URQUELL, traditional Pilsner lager beer, on tap. Our wine collection offers many quality wines from all over the world and includes also wines from Moravian winery MUSIL, whose wines are presented at the “Wine Salon” (collection of top 100 Czech wines) each year.
