Of course itís a tourist place. But you can still have a good time here, if you soak in the atmosphere and just enjoy it for what it is. Food is good. Beer is OK too.

stopped in for a 10am morning dunkel, and what a fine dunkel it was. our reward for drinking so early was that the place was empty of people, and so also empty of cigarette smoke. large rooms, long tables, interesting character but I canít say much about the patrons, good or bad, since there were none. worth visiting for Tmave 12, which I found to be quite good on two visits, though I hear others can have some harsh criticisms of itís cleanness or depth.

I visited here in August and I have mixed feelings about the place. I was rushed into the front seating area which was just a large drinking hall. Was very very busy as expected from the few tour buses out front. I was happy to try the beer but just as happy to leave. Perhaps would be enjoyable with a large group. Definitely check it out for the house beer if nothing else.

Historic brewpub, kind of the Schlenkerla of Prague in that way. The vibe is pretty much the same, nice and old school with drunk and happy Czech tourists. The beer is decent if unspectacular, but it is the experience you come for more than anything else.

Although many consider it a toursit trap, the place is real good, as well as the beer. They have just one - dark, but itís the real deal.

It was summer, so it was very enjoyable resting in their beergarden (actually beer-yard) with a refreshing beer. One beer only is quite poor, indeed. A bit too much touristy. Service was ok, donít expect too much kindness in Czech Republic (see Novomestsky as worst example).

Several clean brown rooms in this beautiful Prague brewpub that has one of the prettiest beer gardens in town. Unfortunately, as has already been pointed, it is leaning intensely on the tourist trap, the worst part being those "Itís a tradition here" shooters that theyíll offer you a couple of times per hour despite your repeated refusals. Still, its tmave is a classic of the genre, all in softness, an extremely well-made one though not a personnal favourite. Heavily drinkable to the point that you donít mind itís their only beer. Okay Czech food. Its location is also very central, so itís hard not to recommend taking the half hour it takes to live the experience. Like Uerige, Cantillon and the likes, itís one of those places every beer lover needs to have been to on top of knowing of.

OK, 4 for ambiance. Looks great, though the crowds and amusement park atmosphere detract. Waiters are generally useless, the beer is over-priced and over-rated. I wonít go again, and I wouldnít recommend it except that the beer is so famous and can only be got here.

Visited everal times since 2005, latest visit was Tuesday early, May 26, 2015. Got there around 10:55.
Me and two friends sat down just for a beer each, didnít eat and didnít stay long. Not as crowded as many other times, also fast service for the beer and not as pushy as usual per the Becherovka that we donít want. Easy and fast to pay after.
Beer wasnít as fantastic as I remember it, acutally it was sort of bland and just OK. Not sure if theyíve changed the recipe, Iíve changed my preference or an old beer/bad taps. With the turnover Iíd say not likely an old beer and Iíd guess also not likely bad cleaning of taps. My hunch is theyíve changed teh recipe and/or brew process since the way it was when I fell in love with this beer.
Very touristy place, still worth getting to at least once. Very centrally located, easy walk from e.g. Lazarska.
Earlier text from earlier visits:
Iíve visited U Fleku once, when I was in Prague for one week in May of 2005. I will be going to Prague again in less than two weeks time and have booked a dinner and a guided brewery tour of the pub brewery for our group.
Last time I can remember trying only one beer of theirs, the "dark". I donít think they have any other beers, but with that quality, who needs more?
A bit split about what to put under selection, they only have one beer, so selection is very poor, but the one they have is excellent, so what to say?
Food is very nice too, and good sice portions of that.
The place is very bit pricy compared to many non-tourist places in Prague, but itís worth a visit and Iíd say itís pretty much mandatory to visit it at least once when in Prague.
Can get quite crowded, so might be a good idea to make reservations or come as small groups (or alone).
Visits to the brewery is possible, but make resevations to be sure, specially if you want the guide to be able to do the tour in English.
If the waitors comes with glasses of Becherovska and you donít want it, tell them fast, or youíll end up paying for it anyway.
A bit confusing since one guy handles beer, another food, a third the becherovska and a fourth the payment. Once you get the hang of that itís easier to follow who you should try and get the attention from.
