“Wonderful Czech Pub with Great Food”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We asked our hotel for a recommendation for a place where we could get really good Czech food in an authentic environment. They recommended Kolkovna Celnice and we were delighted with the choice. We liked it so much we came back for a second night as well. Every dish we had was superb and the prices were very reasonable. The service was fast and the beers were great. We really liked the Roast duck, the Turkey Schnizel, the goulash, and the red cabbage. We even ended up buying 3 glass beer mugs to take home to remember this place.

“Good food but slow kitchen”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

We enjoyed our dinner when we finally received it. I think they forgot our order as everyone around us had been served and were through eating when they told us 5 more minutes. The 5 minutes end up to be 10 minutes. The good news was the meal and the beer were both tasty, just slow.

“Excellent service and local Czech food”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We loved the food and beer here. The food was a mixed platter of meats and the waitress made sure we knew that it would serve two of us--it was 900grams of food (shown on menu).

“Fun, value for money, very good service”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

I was pleasantly surprised by Kolkovna Celnice. I am always 'wary' of tourist restaurants offering 'genuine' cuisine of the country. Combined with this - it was a group booking for 20. My expectations were not high!
The restaurant is in the centre of Prague and not far from many of the Prague sites and central hotels. We were sat in the large, bustling downstairs seating area. Drinks orders were taken and delivered quickly. Both the food and drink prices are in line with other Prague restaurants 'off the tourist track' and provide very good value for money. The service was quick, and they handled our frequent moving places with a smile and still managed to serve the correct meal to the right person
This is fun tourist venue which offers value for money and good service. Be warned - it is neither a fine dining nor a romantic venue - but for what it offers - I would happily visit it again next time I am in Prague

“Eat with the locals in historiic beer pub!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

As you enter the historic dining area you are greeted by 10 beer taps and the "beer captain" who mans his post like a field general! The space is large, open, comfortable and you just know "you ain't in Kansas anymore"! The crowd is a mix of locals and tourists, all enjoying the wonderful authentic Czech food. Enjoy the "little sparrows" and a "half 'n half" beer (don't fret, it's a little Czech joke!). The duck, recommended by a friend, was amazing and certainly one of the best renditions of this dish I have ever had. And if the food and atmosphere wasn't enough, the prices are very reasonable.
