Oh yeah, go here just to sit in the courtyard on a hot summer day drinking unfiltered Pilsner Urquell. This is the same beer as that which is served on the brewery tour, only it’s from the tanks and not from the wood barrel... but man is it delicious... one of the best pils I’ve ever had, different from the wood fermented version, and dare I say better? As far as the interior, it’s typical old wood, a lot of seats and benches, the food is above average but not the best we found in Czech Republic. You owe it to yourself to visit this place and drink the unfiltered PU before you hit the brewery tour, just to be able to compare them with little time inbetween.

Well, this lovely beer hall/porch/walled garden resturant/tourist museum attraction could not have been any more convienent for me since the Pension City where we stayed during our two nights in Plzen is 75 paces away. The Unfiltered Urquell is all it stacks up to be and is served with pride here. The waiters and barmaids are attentive but not pushy. I ended up sitting o the canopied porch all the times I was there. Fil met us here and subsequently dragged us about Plzen until we stumbled our way home. A very pleasant place to have a spectacular beer.

First rating: Very nice food but really did go there for the Kvasnicovy Urquell which is excellent. Make sure to visit the museum and then carry on to the brewery visit. Second rating: My third visit in four years. Has turned a bit touristy now it seems. More expensive and the food was worse, goulasch was quite crappy compared to older days. Also service was slower.

Excellent beer, nice atmosphere, very traditional (but not in that old-style, murky way). As good as a modern Czech beer tap gets.

A good, not too touristy or pricey pub in the center of town. Friendly, helpful service, nice patio. Enjoy Your Kvasnicovy Urquell there....!

This is the restaurant that serves the unfiltered Pilsner Urquell. They have the 2 Master beers, which are quite good as well. The food is pretty good too, so I recommend having a meal while you down your Urquell Kvasnicové. While you’re there, why not visit the adjoining brewery museum, it has lots of interesting, archaic brewing artifacts. Do not miss this place while in Plzen, it’s always worth a stop.

I quite liked this place as a pub - a nice relaxed vibe and a fairly young crowd on the occasions I’ve been there. The food is very good too. Service was a bit average when I was last there - they kept bringing me the wrong beer even though motelpogo said I was pronouncing it right. Obviously you go there because of the PU kvasnicovy which is very nice, but I think it’s been surpassed these days. And then there’s the Master beers... don’t do it! Obviously this is a must-visit at least once, but there are several places within a five minute walk I’d probably rather drink. But I like places that are a bit weird - this is probably the nicest (classiest?) good beer pub in town.

the main reason to come to this place is that it is the only pub which offers unfiltered pilsner urquell, a rarity that you will otherwise find only on the brewery tour. it’s a bit touristy but at least this means the staff speak good english. really nice balcony, smoky interior. hearty food, try the pig knee
