“Some history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

We did not order any food, only visited to have a look atits architecture. Italso houses the motocycle museum. Former City mill below the Castle and one of the oldest buildings in the city, in 1347 mentioned in a Charter of Petr I z Rožmberk, late-Gothic building stage first half 16th century, 1608-1611 reconstruction late Renaissance, in 1780 a major reconstruction took place, around 1880 the last gate of the city fortress (which stood between the mill and House Nr. 89) was demolished. The very first Miller was Mates Schemerle, the first actual owner (shared proporty between owner, authorities and landlord) was Antonín Postel in 1782 (now House Nr. 80 and separated from House Nr. 82 and other buildings on the island), past 1850 privately owned. Today the mill houses: a restaurant with a terrace at the riverbank, a Gallery with exhibition of paintings and graphic painters, a museum of historic vehicles (car, moto, bicycle), steam engines and antique objects. According to a legend the mill had the protection of the aquatic elfling who was responsible for shells and pearls, some named him the “little parelman”. According to the fairy tale his Rainbow-costume was decorated with pearls. Who wished to find a particularly large and nice Pearl had to ask the aid of the beaded Elfling, once the Pearl was found but fell back into the water could or it was impossible to open it a calamity would occur. In a second story it is told that due to an illness the mill got into major financial trouble. The Miller's wife sat by the river bank and cried many tears. Suddenly a little girl appeared and caught her in tears in her apron and said: "don't cry, everything will be fine", the tears turned into pearls and the miller’s wife spread these amongst the poor, after this noble gesture happiness and peace returned at the mill.

“Almost the only one to avoid in CK!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

If your taste in "authentic" is an "Irish Bar" in the middle of Texas or a "genuine" Country and Western themed restaurant in Glasgow, then this place may be for you! If, on the other hand, you can see past the the cycles hanging from the rafters and actually manage to read the plastic coated menu in the half light of the dismally darkened restaurant, you will realise that the prices for food and drink are nearly double anywhere else in CK. That would be OK if the quality merrited it- but it does not! You are simply paying for the pleasue of avoiding wonderful authentic Bohemian cuisine to dinne on the kind of junk served up be Frankies and Benny's or TGI Friday... and do not fall for the trick of being shown the steak (at a cost of £14 a time) that is about to be cooked for you on the open fire BBQ! It may not be the same one that comes back on your plate on a busy night. The beer served here is cheap everyhwere else compared to the premium brands (Budvar; Staropramen; Urquell) but for some reason it costs almost twice as much as anywhere else in the area! More expensive than a comparable restaurant in Prague and with prices to match and UK city, this place does not endear itself to the regular visitor to Southern Bohemia but may appeal to those whose tastes are for more plastic gastronomic experiences.
