Yes; it;s full of tourists. Yes; it is WAAY overpriced (for Prague). Yes; the waiters pushing Becherovka can get annoying. That said; the beer is a world classic; the building is is beautiful. The beer garden is pleasant; what more do you want? 60 taps; w/ half being Imperial wet hopped golden Trappist Ale? Not bloody likely... Go; have 2-3 beers and get on down the road...

This is a huge beer hall with a very smokey smoking section and a very quiet and sparsely populate non-smoking section. Beer is brought to you before you really need it, but that is a-ok by me. The food was pretty solid and went really well with the beer. Don’t try the Becherovka though. They try and force these shots on you. Just polity decline and have another beer.

Fun, traditional, place in Prague that is a must for all beer lovers. The selection is limited to their one dark lager, but it is really good, so you won’t be disappointed. The atmosphere is fun and boozy, and there’s usually some merry band playing traditional (drinking?) songs to keep everyone happy & drinking. And drinking is what this place is about; it’s hard to keep the waiters from serving more beer or snaps. Food is ok bavarian-style (pork, potatoes and stuff). Compared to Czech standards, it is a bit pricey, but worth a visit.

Yes it is over-touristed and the staff could look a little more interested and it is expensive even for central Prague but all that misses the point of why this place is a global treasure. It has survived in one way shape of form for 500 years and none of us or the institutions and beliefs we cherish are going to come anywhere close to that. It a hero dressed in black. As older Czechs used to say before the Velvet Revolution, "First survive. Everything else is luxury."

Sat behind in the patio. Weather was not good so we had most of space to ourselves. I like vibe feel of this building. Beer was solid. Had a good time. I would go back next time I am in Prague.

I liked this place, maybe it was the big room, maybe it was sitting down with a very young son and enjoying a beer, yeah only the one beer, but i enjoyed it. service could have been a little better

This place wasn’t as huge and crowded as I had imagined it to be, probably because we visited in the early afternoon. Waitors really want to sell their Becherovka, but they’re not unfriendly and declining twice should get rid of them for the remainder of your stay. A little pricey and the beer is overrated, but getting the rating wasn’t as unpleasant as I had expected.

Uno de los mejores lugares visitados en Europa..... La cerveza es realmente buena, acompańada de un licor de cortesia que dan en el lugar...
El precio es relativamente barato y el ambiente es de primera calidad...

Jam packed in smoky little rooms. Loud. The German style oompa band only adds to the noise. Pushy service when it comes to the shots they offer. Beer is good and keeps coming until you tell them to stop. Great food and a decent value. A little bit more than other places, but it is the tourist area.
