Their beers were nice, though not quite as good as I expected. Nice location, though where we were there was no view. Prices are ridiculously high, however, which is a little annoying. Wouldn’t bother a second time, though if you are in the area, the IPA was pretty good for a pils country.

Charming brewpub in Strahov monastery with several sections including a comfortable terrace. The nearby view on Prague is beautiful. We have not eaten here, but we drank the 4 beers offered with great satisfaction. The tmave was the best one I’ve ever had. They even had an IPA, not that it was a show-stopper, but it gives a glimpse that they do try to go beyond the ordinary. The service was very good with excellent English spoken and a prompt reaction when the glasses were empty. While the prices are pretty much twice as high as the city’s average, it is still half of what’s I’m used to paying, so I did not feel insulted for the quality I was offered. Seriously, if the beers had not been that good, I’d likely despise this place as a tourist trap. But it’s also a great brewery. A must visit in Prague.

Visited the brewpub on 12th and 14th July 2010. Was very impressed by the greater beer range. The IPA could only be described as nectar, full of rich hoppiness; the standard amber and dark tmavy ale were as good as I remembered them from 2004 if not better. There was also a wheatbeer, albeit on the sweet side.
Food was excellent on both visits, staff conversant in English, and of course the location is idyllic.
The best way to reach here is to get the No 22 tram to Pohorelec and walk up the steps through a doorway in the high wall. At the top of the steps turn right and walk past VELKA Klasterni Restaurace. Do not confuse the two. Velka is often full of tourists and shows sports on TV, and only has two beers. The photos above should help you find this pub.
And you’ll be glad you went.

I visited in July 2009. Ha, I cheated, I took the tram uphill around the Castle to visit the Klasterni Strahov. Evan Rail’s "Good Beer Guide Prague" led me here, and although he warned that service is sometimes poor, I found it to be very good, especially after charming the young server with some poorly pronounced greetings and a smile. They’re really quite nice here. Oh yes, the beer. Very tasty! My friend tried a St. Norbert dark lager and was very impressed - I went for a delicious semi-dark amber. The copper vats were just beyond arm’s reach, so it didn’t travel far in its brief life. I then moved to their wheat beer - one of the nicest wheats I’ve ever tasted. This stop was a prelude to the even better U Cerneho Vola just down the street. It’s then an easy stagger back to the tram stop for the journey back to the river. Highly recommended.

Nice place in a nice location. As usual, service was terrible, but if you can look over that, the place is ok, and the brews are also good. Food was tasty. We sat outside on a busy weekend, and had a good time.

Went there in early October with some friends for beers (and dessert) after some sightseeing around the castle and a lunch at the Klášterní Restaurace nearby. Was lucky enough to catch both the summer and the autumn seasonals at the same time (I guess). A nice place, warmed even on the outside. The beers were superb, the pear? pie or something similar I had (from their autumn menu) quite tasty. The location is quite nice too. All in all, I’ll be back, preferably for the other seasonals :)

2 beers avaliable in the winter period. They were both good and cheap as anywhere in Prague. 2-3 US a pint. The area around the castle and the walk down from Strahov was a beautiful experience. So when you visit the area and enjoys the view - go enjoy a couple of beers. Re-Rate Easter -14. After seven visits through the years. Best beers served in Prague. Lovely. Top 1.

We found this place by accident, thank goodness!! I drank one of the best weizens I’ve ever had. I tried all 3 beers they had on tap, excellent! The service was excellent, and the sausage and schnitzel were great. It may be considered expensive by czech standards but for what we spent for 2 lunches and 5 beers wouldn’t have even bought 1 round in a milanese pub.

Quite a walk to get there, uphill, but the view is fantastic and it is nice to eat and drink outdoor in the shadow. Beer and food was OK, the waiters quick in spite of the many people present. Only 2 beers.

Stopped here to try the light and dark. Had the beers along with the goulash. Everything was good, prices seemed fair.
