Lokal is part of a small chain in Prague (there are, I think, two or three other locations, as well as some sister restaurants owned by the same company). This location is part of an inn located in Mala Strana, very close to the Charles Bridge. Food was good but not great (though portions were generous and fairly priced), beer was great (but it's hard to find beer in Prague that isn't!), service was not so great (it took a while after we were seated to get menus, then another while before someone came to take our order, and no one really seemed to be responsible for our table). The room was fairly basic; nothing really on which to comment. One interesting thing I will point out is that they seem to take their beer seriously: there were several different versions of Pilsner Urquell on the menu, and when I asked the difference the explanation was that each was the same beer but drawn from the tap differently to create more or less foam...interesting. I wanted to like Lokal more. It seems to want to be a place for "foodies" (which I am); they have their own butcher shop and make their own sausages and smoke their own meats, they make their own mustard, etc., but it just wasn't that special, at least not for lunch. Lokal is a decent place to stop for a casual lunch if you are nearby, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it.
