The pub is strategically located. It’s about halfway up the hill when going from the downtown touristy Prague walking up the equally touristy hill with the castle and everything. Basically it’s the perfect pit-stop. The pub is actually two separate buildings with a wonderful patio in between the two. The building on the left is more like a pub while the building on the right is more like a restaurant. Both feel very authentic in their respective ways. Beer and food is among the most pricey I’ve had in Czech Republic although by my North American standards this is still dirt cheap. Beer was about average and food was average, my goulash was below average but my friends meals looked delicious. I didn’t like the fact that the beers were served in 400ml. WTF. A beer in Czech Republic comes in a 500ml pint, period. Terrible service, a rarity in Czech Republic. 3 beers on tap including one seasonal. I’ll remember this pub as the pub that served the Svatý Norbert Velikonoční 13°, the best standard Světlý (non-barel-aged) I’ve had in Czech Republic. Unfortunately this was the seasonal but I’d book a flight back to Czech republic just to drink that beer. Overall it is really worth stopping by for a few hours. Plus if you do the Prague touristy circuit you’ll be walking right next to it.

A truly great place - wonderful setting within the first courtyard of the Klasterni Strahov. New, modern feel to the rustic wooden tables and chairs as well as a large oudoor seating area. Okay service, though it was a bit unpersonal. Highlight of the day when a Spanish ’mama’ arrived, blabbering in Spansih to the friendly waitors. Who didn’t understand a thing. She kept blabbering. Their beers are simply outstanding as well. I’ll go here everytime I’m in Prague from now on!

A top class brewpub, for certain. Efficient and friendly service and good beers. Big, airconditioned cellar restaurant, very hot bar/brew room, and a plenty of outdoors seating. I really needed to eat a salad that day, so I’ll not talk about the quality of their food...
Now, if only I could have bought the autumn, winter and spring specials bottled, selection and overall could have gotten really high grades.
Visited again during the winter, 2011. Had food and it was everything you could hope for. A great roast goose with all the necessary trimmings. Beer quality still excellent.

Fantastic spot, get there early in the day. Very nice beers, the service was a bit lukewarm. Don’t miss this. Visit the library next door to work up a thirst.

The monastery was just fantastic located and the atmosphere was great. Live music from the nearby monastery, while we enjoyed the three different beers on tab. Food was excellent and very cheep. Service was unfriendly and not very informative or helpful unfortunately. Maybe they had a bad day? Still this is a must place to see when in Prague.

Hike the hill to this spot, it’s worth the view on the way up and it’s worth the beer as a reward for your hard work. On draft during my visit was a dunkel, hefeweizen and an amber, all solid but nothing groundbreaking. No food for me but the plates nearby smelled wonderful. Prices are a bit high even though it’s not tourist central in Prague, it’s still Prague, so expect to pay US $2-3 per 1/2 liter instead of $1-1.50 in Plzen.

On a rainy day in Prague this past week I spent a happy two hours sitting around an umbrellaed table in the rocky beer garden. The kitchen is well staffed and the interior of the brewpub is a nice presentaton of old world charm and newe copper. The staff was attentive and chatty. I was frotunate enough to speak with martin the Brewmaster at length. Not too hard to find but worth the hike up the hills about the castle. I liked the bicycle horn when the food was ready. My wife especially enjoyed the desert menu.

It’s easy to dismiss this place as a blatent tourist operation but there’s nothing better than samplng some of these well made beers after a long hike up the hill through Mala Strana. This modern looking brewpub has two regular beers on (amber and dark) and a serious of rotating seasonals (inc weizen, Easter beer, Christmas doppelbock and Autumn dark). Menu is deep with local offerings. Beers are not the cheapest in town but you will certainly get something different. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back.

It will be simple to comment. This has been the best place I visited in Prague, though they have a small selection (usually 2 beers on tap), their beers are the best in town (IMO) and the position of the monastery, dominating the city from the hill, is superb. We enjoyed a relaxing hour in the garden with their beers.
