(visited in in July 2009 and 2012) One of the most atmospheric and authentic places I have ever supped beer in. Walked in with friend as it opened and had a beer in 45 secs. Did not eat; VERY limited food menu. No noise other than talking and the thud of beer glasses landing on your table. Kozel beer (tankovs sytle) is the thing to have here. Prices are kept low b/c it is "owned" by a group who want the locals to come not the mass of tourist hordes. Do not go mess this place up.

Visited July 2012. This is the epitome of a local bar. Two old men as waiters, one man pours the beers, the other man serves them!
No advertising for the bar, so we walked by several times!!! Dark benches and tables, very small, very cosy. If you visit the castle, come here for a couple of pints.

Have visted on and off over the years. As a tourist you are more or less tolerated by the staff, who seems to enjoy their local patrons more than the occasional thirsty tourist. Very genuine place though, and very nice to find one such as this in the more touristy parts of town, instead of heading more to the suburps that I’m more used to doing. Haven’t eaten here, not sure I’d try, but you can get nice beers at low prices in a Czech style pub atmosphere frequented more by Czech than tourists. Nice to swing by after visiting the monastary brew pub, before getting the tram back to town.

Hardly any tourists, only "grumpy old men" serving and drinking Kozel beer. I like that! I am not a big fan of the bottled Kozel beers, but here you get excellent Kozel Tankova - fresh and unpasteurised. (Visited 22nd February 2012)

I was in Prague during summer 2008 and this place became a favorite haunt of ours. One of the few places we found that served Kozel at the time. Their svetly right off the draft was divine at the time, so much better than the canned stuff abroad. I was just a beer novice at the time, but anyways. A very nice, classic Czech beerhouse atmosphere with excellent and quick service though not a word of English was spoken I think. Selection of course wasn’t very good. Food was very simple and not that great. Very cheap though. Two euros bought you a filling plate of sausage and potatoes as well as the svetly (or cerne if that was your choice) to go with it.

Nice authentic Czech pub. Small selection of beers but they are kept well. Recommended place for one or more beers.

Not a big choice of beers, but they’re all from trap. No fancy dining, but just some honest (greasy but yummy) snack food. Great atmosphere, just join other people at the large tables. Locals usually want to be left alone, but you can pick up conversation with some other tourists. One of my favourite pubs in all of Prague!

Good old fashioned watering hole close to the Castle area, perfect place for a pit stop on the way to Strahov. I always drink the Kozel dark here, so much better from tap than bottled.

A very nice little place with an authentic local feel despite being situated in the middle of tourist hell. Excellent tankovna Urquell.
