Rustic tavern inside the historic and beautiful monastery, with some tables outside for eating, drinking and admiring the courtyard. Two of three of the Brevnovsky beers on tap, plus a couple of good but more mainstream beers, to wash down some seriously hearty traditional food. We couldn’t get past the cold starters, digging into smoked pork belly with mustard and horseradish, pork cracklings in lard with fresh onions, and goat cheese in blackberry sauce. Next adventure would have been bacon dumplings, but we were full. Side benefit to the food and history and atmosphere is getting to drink some excellent lager made on the 20-hectoliter around back, just beyond the ancient medieval tire repair shop. Come and spend the afternoon. You can get here via foot and tram in 20 minutes from Prague Castle. True.

A restaurant located in the old monastery, vis a vis brewery.
Interesting interior, plenty of space, good food, proffesional staff.

Gotta agree with previous poster heres, really shitty service. Visited twice recently, beers from Brevnov, Klaster and some 3rd brewery when I was there. Had reservations so no problem sitting, but as mentioned before people get turned away. They even angrily told a group of 3 English girls to bugger off after we had made room for them at our table (we were only 2 and had plenty of space), but hell no, not at this restaurant. Food really average and we almost had to nag to get our glasses refilled. Will not return.

Very nice place to eat and drink, good kitchen, a bit pricy. Great in summer - there are tables outside and some toys for kids. Situated in the beautiful monastery - worth visit too!

Trundled out to the Monastery on a Saturday afteroon. It’s lovely out there. The grounds are very picturesque. The primary purpose of our visit though was to get some high end beer at the source and chow down on some tidy scran. When we walked in, we were met with the customary surly attitude from the head waiter. ’No tables’ he said. We hadn’t sat on the number 22 tram for 30 minutes just to jump back on it and go home hungry so I really battled him on this. He told us there was no tables and no hope of getting one. I pointed one out - ’what about that one’? - ’it’s reserved’ - turns out it was reserved in 90 minutes time so he graciously did us the favour of letting us eat lunch at it. It’s not like we were sitting down for a 12 course tasting menu. 90 minutes? I’ve encountered this kind of malicious customer service countless times now. I’m not sure that they even know that they’re doing it. The place is nice. It’s got a homely, rustic Czech feel. The food is good too but not particularly better than any of the more centrally locate purveyors of Czech cuisine. While we ate, all the reserved tables just lay empty. We left. Still empty. people just kept getting turned away at the door. If you’re going to go, be prepared to have an argument with the waiter. It might be the only way you’ll get fed. Ultimately, I wouldn’t recommend making the trip unless you have a lot of time to spare and you’ve seen everything else. Their beer is available elsewhere in Prague and the food is good but not THAT good.

One of the best food in Prague. One of the best beers in Prague. Situated right in the beautiful monastery. Very fancy restaurant. You should try IPA as well, they brew it very well.

Nice place inside the Brevnovsky Castle area. Service is not top class, one of the waitors did not seem too keen on working this day. Two taps from Brevnovsky Benedict, and three taps from Lobkowicz. Did not try the food.

A great restaurant away from the tourist crowd though you may run into a bus load of hungry tourists. This is a popular place among locals and larger groups. Easy to reach by tram 22 or 57. You can see the monastery buildings from the tram stop Brevnovsky Klaster. When I first visited in 2008, we came for the Klaster beers. Now I headed straight for Brevnovsky Benedict Svetly and Cerne(Tmavy) Lezak on tap. The brewery is in a nearby building, but was closed Saturdays. Great food, and large portions at reasonable prices. Even my elderly parents liked this place... Yes, you heard right, I do not always travel alone! (Visited March 16th 2013)

New monastery tavern, located next to the Breunau monastery church of St. Margret; rustic, but also modern interior and a small patio with a view to the church; 6 taps, two of them are brewed in the Břevnovský klášterní pivovar next door. But, this is n o t the official brewery-tap, because the brewery and the tavern are run by two different companies. Good for a draught czech "Abbey"-beer.....
