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.

A very interesting place. Quite alot of tourists. The beer was served before we even sat down, and the glass of licqeur was brought just a fewseconds later. I tried to say no, but thewaitor just said it was a tradition to drink it and then I guess I had accepted the glass. An old man with a harmonica played czech music and all together this place was very different but kinda nice...

Got here at 9am, had the whole place to myself. Sat in the Biergarten in the back, very pretty. Tacky dark wooden picnic tables and umbrellas surrounded by trees and beautiful architecture from Neo-Gothic and Renaissance with a hint of modern looming in the distance. A bunch of separate rooms in the main building, all dark wood, looky homey! I was pampered, but then again, they didn’t have much else to do. A great beer. The moral? Start your day here in the warm summer sun, free from tourist inanity (insanity?).

Hard to find, but worth it once you’re there. Yes, it is touristy... but at the same time it is damn good beer. I would go back there.

I’ve 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 don’t 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 it’s worth a visit and I’d say it’s 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 don’t want it, tell them fast, or you’ll 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 it’s easier to follow who you should try and get the attention from.

Did not really like the place, there is only one kind of beer, and the way they serve you is different. I liked that cinammon alike beverage they gave.

I showed up on Christmas Day and U Fleku was PACKED. Furthermore, the stench from lack of deodorant was overwhelming - strong enough to drive me from the building after only 10 minutes. In that time, however, I did quaff the one U Fleku beer and it was delicious. It’s the typically thick, rich, very very malty, lightly bittered dunkel that people in Prague are so fond of. Very nice and sweet. Drinking it while revelers were singing and rocking back and forth in their bench seats was an interesting experience. Beer is US$2 per glass, which is pricey for Prague. Waiters didn’t impress.
I felt U Fleku was a bit hard to find as it’s on a darkened side street, so bring a map.
