This place is legendary? Yes, the beer is good. Well, pretty good. And expensive. The food is also insanely overpriced, and not very good. I could see the atmosphere of an oompah band being fun if you’re part of a drunken 50-person Italian tour group, but there are better things to do in Prague.

The beer and schnapps may be overpriced by Czech standards, but for a Norwegian no beer abroad is overpriced! Worth going to for their one and only beer, which is very good. The infamous schnapps (which I drank AFTER the beer) was actually not too bad. Did not eat on our visit.

Expensive tourist trap, but the beer and the food is worth a visit.

A guidebook staple, but very disappointing. Waiters are unfriendly and very pushy, virtually forcing you to have the ’traditional’ liqueur, and hovering as you sip your beer, waiting to slam another glass down. Crammed with tourists appreciating the nice, traditonal beerhall decor. I didn’t like the beer much really, and wouldn’t bother coming back here.

Knew this was a tourist trap going in and expensive by Czech standards but you travel half way around the world and you have a chance to visit the worlds oldest brewpub you of course take it in. The dark lager didn’t disappoint and probably one of the better ones I had there and there is no such thing as a under pour there. It is a little annoying about the schnapps guys coming around every three minutes but I was warned before I went. I recommend going for a beer or two and not much more. Staff was friendly but my wife is fluent in Czech so I may have been treated better than normal.

This is the place. Uber-touristy, but for good reason. Great gulas, copsky salaty and knedliky. The beer is the tastiest in Prague. The drunken Germans and accordion player are a little much, but the beer is certainly worth going for. They close at 11, but you’re right across the street from Nebe and a short tram ride from the dozens of bars in Vysehrad.

A bit too touristy, but as a beer lover one has too go there at least one time if in Prague. Prices for the beer higher than normal in Prague, Prices for the Becherovka is astronomical.

I did’nt try the food. However it was a great place to go if you are a group of people going out to drink large amounts of good quality beer. We got our own room. Traditinal and beautiful. Try their beer snaps!

I agree with TimE, visit there for their excellent beer. Go to eat somewhere else.

The most touristy place in Prague (and that says ALOT). Expensive, but tasty beer. The waiters say the apple schnapps are a tradition and literally put them in front of you nose as if to force you to take one (of course you have no idea how much the schnapps cost until the end and then you will be shocked at around $5). We had a cold cut platter and it was pretty good, but too expensive. This place is somewhat over rated IMO.
I recommend stopping by here for one or two beers and then leaving. Don’t purchase any food or schnapps and you’ll make out fine.
