The only nice room in this brewpub is the one that looks like the first level at Pivovarsky Klub. The waiter was not the nicest one, the goulash was merely passable and expensive and the two beers I tasted were either bad or mediocre. I was so disappointed that I didn’t even care about the (rather expensive) imperial stout they had in bottles.

I’ve been to this brewpub 3 times, although on my first visit the pub was too crowded to handle my party of 6 or 7 people. But I was there long enough to see some strange looking beers, a couple of tables with giraffes, and a generally attractive appearance; I also noted a fine atmosphere and vowed to return if possible. This review is based on two return visits in July 2011.
This brewpub doesn’t serve the largest number of different beers, but their variety can match the on-site brews of any pub I’ve ever been in. Besides the usual array of Czech beers -- light and dark lagers -- they have banana beer, the very odd nettle beer (it’s naturally green), an excellent sour-cherry beer, coffee beer, beer champagne, beer brandy, and some others. Visitors can get a nice sampling wheel to try the standard and eccentric beers. Sampler aside, prices seem a bit high (by Czech standards), but the beer is very good quality and many are unique.
This pub is very near to a tram stop and walking distance to the Old Town section, but far enough from any main tourist area to attract many casual tourists. My first trip here was with locals.
I ate here on two occasions and the food was very good each time. Service was professional if a bit less warm than some from other parts of the world might hope for. English menus are available and most servers speak some English. Menu features traditional Czech foods. There are several different seating areas, but not seats at the bar. Tours of the brewing facilities are available on occasion (I think depending on how busy they are.
I hope to return again, hopefully with a bunch of people so that I can have a giraffe at my table -- also to get a tour and find out more about both the ’regular’ and the weird brews.

Thanks to google maps fail when plotting maps took me quite long to find it and locals seem not to know much about it. Anyway, a rather big brewpub/restaurant that is actually well visited. Food is decent, while, beers are interesting to say at least. They have a tasting samples, which comes on handy if you’re first time at the place. Service wasn’t slow as it could be for so many people. Food was okay. I felt like prices are a bit higher or average comparing to other Prague brewpubs, still cheap.

brewery and restaurant near Karlovo namesti. Six or seven beers draught plus their Imperial Stout bottled in the fridge. Service was ok, food was ok (had the honey-marinated chicken breasts), the beers are ok. Nothing special, but all in all worth a visit.

Bit of a walk from city center but it is worth it. Wide range of types brewed from nettle beer to Grodziskie (can’t complain there). Service was friendly but not overly. Decent process. Interesting design of its place , clean but bit cold.

Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. At first we tried to get there on Friday evening but it was totally packed. Second try on Sat noon was ok. Food was nothing special as it was partly made of normal supermarket frozen food (e.g. vegetable mix & salmon steak). They have a nice selection of their own draft beer. You can order a 8 x 1 dl sampler set which includes all of them. Very reasonable prices.

A nice brewpub and popular among tourists. Beers varies from excellent to pretty weird stuff. The new Dum Scotish Ale was a pleasant surprise. Good food and efficient service, although it was pretty crowded. (Visited 23rd February 2012)

The svetle and tmave "piva" are excellent. The specials beers are pretty amusing: coffee, banana, nettle. Funny but not necessarily good. I you see the Grodziskie, a now discontinued Polish smoked wheat beer, try it it’s amazing. Ambiance is nice, fauna is a mix of tourists and locals. Service is hit or miss: can be un-friendly but english is never a problem. Huge windows combined with tilted mirrors allow you to keep an eye on the open-top fermenters while you quaff your pivo. Nice. For the food, I must say I am always a little bit disappointed...
