Pseudo-traditional Czech atmosphere, hindered only by the abundance of tourists and the bar’s taking advantage of this fact. Still a really nice place.

Hmmm. Difficult to rate. I definitely enjoyed the beer and appreciate the history of the pub. That said, I was sitting between lots of tourists carrying guidebooks and felt a bit like drinking along an assembly line. The food looked okay but I went somewhere much nicer.

Visited on one of my first trips to CZ. It’s one of those "been there - done that" places. Have a beer for the experience - it’s unique in it’s own way (and a big tourist place - get over it!) and head for the back room and enjoy the Becherovka with your friends! There are many great places in the city where great beer flows I discovered in the years I spent here - have a beer and keep going.

Biggest disappointment in Prague, arrogant waiters, mediocre beer.

Look folks, it may be a bit touristy and they only have one kind of beer available (Awesome) and they shove the drinks down your throat, you can always get up and leave. I enjoyed the fact that i didnt have to wait for a beer. We sat there for 3 hours and had a great inexpensive lunch...try the beer cheese. and the kielbasa. Stay away from the shots (Becherovka) or only do one..or two.....The Tuba and accordion duets and roving folk musicians are wonderful. yes it is a moneymachine...it had better be if it is has been in business since 1499. I wish I would have made an appointment for a tour. Next time with the wife.
2008: Even my non-drinking wife liked this place. I came back from hittng the WC and found her dancing with the Tuba player. If that isn’t an endorsement for a nice afternoon, I’m not surewhat is. Again, it may be pricey for the Czech Republic, and a bit tourisy but who realy cares? It’s a great atmosphere and this year the brews and becherovka were brought to you at request. I went back two days in a row for thier solidly good beer. As my cousin Tim stated If you don’t like Tuba and accordion music and one type of good beer, then get the hell out of the Bar!

Turistfælde. Øllet er skidt, og smager overhovedet ikke af øl. Stemningen fejler dog ikke noget, og der er masser af mennesker. Live harmonika musik der går rundt langs bordene. Pas dog på med snapsene

A very big place - 4 wings and a courtyard. The service is very fast... a bit too fast... this is a moneymachine. Avoid the shots - its very expencive and not that interesting. The beer is not bad, but this is a lot more expencive than in the rest of the town. Note to Jacob - Here is Harmonica-music - and singing !!

Few large beer halls, traditional Czech’s cuisine, expensive tourist trap. On final price is added 10% for service. Excellent description gave "rlgk".

I loved this place, and the beer was great. There’s just something about a place where the beer doesn’t stop coming unless you ask for a check that I love.
