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 13, 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.
Tourist central and the prices match. The beer is excellent and worth the trip. Nice traditional beer halls with musicians wandering around helping you part with cash. Shots are also foisted upon you which are extra.
Worth a visit for the beer and venue to say youíve been but after that wouldnít rush back.
Wow, I never entered a rating...OK, well itís a landmark pub. I actually liked it better the second time around.

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.
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.
