“Good place off the beaten path near the castle hill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

I recommend trying this place because it was out of the way of all the other places and quiet. You will want to get away from all the crazy tourists to have a quiet lunch. The place is very clean and the wait staff seemed nice. Food was probably average though. Not the best Italian, not the worst Italian. Just good hot food and a quiet place to sit.

“A good place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

We enjoyed a nice lunch at the Black Eagle with dishes from the Czeck kitchen along with local beer. A nice atmosphere, and good value for money.

“Pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2012

We stopped here for lunch after leaving the castle. We picked it because it appeared to be full of locals having a good time. We thought the service was adequate, but not great. All 3 of us enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere.

“Bad service, can't tell about food because it never arrived...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

My girlfriend and I went to this "restaurant" and thought it might be nice. We ordered our drinks which arrived in timely fashion. We then ordered our meal (tortelinni for her and some kind of spaghetti for me). We sat there for 35 minutes without any service whatsoever and when we told the waiter we just wanted to pay for the drinks and leave, he had the nerve to be mad at us, despite our food (which takes maybe 10-15 minutes to make) never arriving in this time. Not to mention, the restaurant was nearly empty except a small family beside us. By the way, they came in after us and ordered their food, and it arrived in the time we were sitting there. Stay away if you don't want to ruin your day and starve.
