“Simple food done nicely”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

This place is a nice local restaurant, which was in fact what attracted us to it. We were looking for nice simple, not-pricey, food and that is exactly what we got. All the food was cooked nice.

“Don't go there!! Worst food and service ever!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

My friend and I had dinner there last night. I ordered the roast duck with dumplings and red cabbage. It was the worst meal I've had in years! The duck had been reheated and warmed up to the point of being totally dry, like cardboard , tough and tasteless. The dumplings were cold and the red cabbage a sticky, gluggy mess. My friend, who is gluten free, ordered steak and a side salad. The steak was fine but there was no side salad except for three tired lettuce leaves and half a baby tomato. we ordered water but never got it.when the waiter came to take our plates he asked how the meal was and I told him ( and showed him as I'd left most of it) but he didn't seem to care. we couldn't get out of there fast enough.dont waste your money, there's plenty of other places nearby.

“A restuarant with atmosphere!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Was in the cellar and ate there, the food was perfect and so was the service. The girls were a bit stresed but there was a lot going on. Seems the the Czech people use the restuarant. we had a gang of 10-12 czech lads next to us and the had great fun which raised the "feelgood" factor of this place.

Highly recommended when you are in the area, but even worth the walk there. We finished our visit to the area with a trip to the Absinth bar and an absinth ice cream...

“Trap for tourists, average food at average prices ”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

It's literally designed to milk the casual tourist walking in. Leaving on the table stale pretzels and almonds and then charging for them just at the time of the bill is lame, nobody was informed about the cost of those and it's not mentioned on the menu either.
Food is very average, beer is good as it is in every single restaurant, pub, bar or club in the whole country.
Waiters will try any way to cheat for a higher tip, claiming the service is not included and then complaining that the tip that was volunteerly left wasn't 10% of the total amount.
Stay away from places like this.

After visiting your restaurant on May 27 th with my friends, I must express my gratitude for the ongoing evening, the food was great, nice and smiling waitress and Czech beer babe. On the next visit Prague again, do not forget to visit your restaurant. Recommend to all.
