“Turning into a tourist trap”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

Having lived near there in the past, I've had the chance to visit several times.

On the plus side, they serve food late at night (if they haven't closed early) and it's usually of a decent standard.

However, the beer is another matter. It's the only place in Prague where I have ever seen barmen run glasses under the hot tap before pouring a beer. The reason appears to be to fool the customer into thinking that's the reason for your second or third beer being considerably warmer than your previous one as they regularly dish up the stale beer from below the taps and imagine that their travelling tourists don't notice.

They also increased the price of their Pilsner overnight by a whopping 12Kc - 37.5%. This is clearly taking advantage of the hotel trade nearby where people don't know any better but is an absolute rip-off for the area.

So if you're hungry after 11pm and have no other place to go, you might bite the bullet and grab a meal there but there are far better options.

“Not worth the visit.”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We visited this restaurant due to a recommendation by the Lonely Planet travel guide and we were very disappointed. Eating in the bar area, the food was average at best and I ordered creme brulee for dessert which had split. The service was very poor: we were not greeted in a friendly manner and had to call our waitress to place our food order, and then our drink order, etc. and she looked as if she couldn't be bothered even though nobody else was in the restaurant; we felt like a bother to her. It's understandable that in a non-English speaking country not everyone speaks great English but by far the best English they managed was to remind us that a tip wasn't included on our bill. A smile translates in every language. We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone and would not visit again.

“Beer, dinner, blues”
Reviewed 1 December 2012 via mobile

Had nice dinner, kabob, salads. Recommend the roasted goat cheese starter. Blues guitar and bass were nice but a little loud. Be sure to go down stairs.
