“Nice place to meet with friends and drink beer”
Reviewed 4 June 2013

I was in Ceska a few years ago for the first time and last time was in January 2013. I have to say that the service got worse (me and my boyfriend went in not noticed by any waitress) and food got worse (there is a long time wait for a meal but food taste like it's not freshly done). In summer there are outside seatings where service is better. Regardless that I like Ceska because it has large range of beers and it has inside with nice atmosphere.

“Location isn't everything....”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

...And location is the best thing about this pub. The food was mediocre ( for example watery onion soup with rock hard stale bread and thin veneer of cheese) and lousy service. Yes, there is a good selection of beer, but then this is Poland- and that is not hard to find! Keep going if you pass this place- there are many other much better places in the immediate vicinity.

“Will visit again, but no rush”
Reviewed 17 August 2012

I like that pub located in basemet which is huge advantage in warm Summer days. Beer is OK, they have many Czech and Slovak beers, which are good. I will visit that place again, but will not push my colleagues to do that asap :)

“Used to be better”
Reviewed 27 December 2011

I have been a frequent user of this restaurant and I liked it a lot for certain reasons
+ great variety of beers
+ tasty food (Ceska salad is my favourite mainly because of its garlic and cream sauce, good starters and main coursers as well)
+ nice location in the Old Town
+ two levels (upper is more like a restaurant, lower one /in the cellar/ is more like a pub).
However, I have noticed some changes which start to turn this restaurant in a food and drink factory...
- waitresses - everytime I'm there they seem to be overworked and underpaid, they are slow, unwilling to help you and unkind... you can forget about a welcome smile and "good bye"... I feel as an unwanted guest there
- drinks... last time I oredered mulled beer and it tasted like lukewarm water with ginger syrup; after one sip i gave it back and ordered tea, no body was interested why I changed my mind...
Moreover, the tables are too close to one another so at times it can be difficult to leave your table...but you have a chance to listen to your neighbours' stories;)
To sum up, this place has a potential for a pleasant meeting spot but it is consistently spoilt by its workers.
