“Good food in dark alleys”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

This is a low key restaurant with dark alleys and dark rooms typical of the city. We took the recommendation of the waiter and had tasty food with good beer at good prices. This is near the Sheraton Charleston Square hotel, and is ideal for a short walk out and a quick, informal dinner.

“Don't be put off!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Approached via an alleyway and has a slightly scruffy feel, but don't be put off by this. Excellent beer brewed on the premises. Food is well presented if slightly stodgy (if you like dumplings, you'll love the is place!). Service slightly lackadaisical. Locals bring their families here. Not particularly touristy.

“Good beer, alright food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

The beer is exceptional. The service? Not so much. Sarcastic service from the waiters. Food was reasonable but nowt special - just typical Eastern European stodge.

“I was concerned about the bad reviews, but it was a great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Me, my parents and my friends had a great time, tasted a lot of nice food and enjoyed good beer, staff was friendly and the place really feels cosy. We had no problem getting tables re-arranged to accommodate our group, we got recommendations regarding the drinks (try the beer champagne, it was something new for us), the waiter was in a good mood and joked with us... and we were not the easiest of guests, requiring things like vegetarian dishes and communication in 2 languages.

“Just ignore the waiters and enjoy the beer and food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We came across this venue on our way back from Wenceslas Square to our hotel on our first day. We were by this time tired and hungry but determined to fit in as many micro breweries as we could. We were on a self organised 15 day trip across Czech Rep. and Slovakia.
First the good points. The dark larger is very good and we were sat right beside the copper's. Price of their own brand beer is 38Czk for .5l (at the time it was 32kcs to the pound) so not to extortionate.
Unfortunately the waiting staff seemed to busy watching a football match to bother with customers but when it became clear that we were football fans relations seemed to warm!
For food we had the mushroom soup in bread. This is a dish that my wife makes often at home and it's sad to say the professional kitchen was not able to match hers made in a small kitchen at home. It was filling and as it was washed down with the good lager we managed to finish it.
To sum up it was nice to have a beer in a micro brewery so close to the city centre and sitting so close to the coppers. Food was acceptable but if we had not been so tired and hungry the staff would have made us think about going somewhere else.
