It was not hard to imagine being in the Czech Republic - tasty and genuine food and beers, with pilsners every bit as good as in the home country. Food was amazing. Worth going out of your way to find.
A fun Czech beer bar to bring back memories of past travels, but definitely does not feature Czech prices - more than 6-10x that! So, if you’re craving well made Czech lager this is the place to go. The Svijany svetly was in good shape, the Bernard not so much.

A fairly gritty boozer, this place. Lager-focused range. Kind of dark inside, all dudes - not the most inviting place, in case you need that feeling of comfort. A change of pace from some of the other Stockholm watering holes.
Updating my review end of February, 2013. Been many times, turned around many times due to it being super crowded and a long waiting list for tables. Cozy place that only serve Czech food and beer. Usually gets rather crowded. Not possible to reserve tables. Well worth it though. Great sauerkraut, very nice food, well kept beers. On occasion have something unfiltered, make sure to ask which one. Tend to have very nice service.
Very fun place that I highly recommend! One of the few places in the world that gets unfiltered Pilsner Urquell on tap for special occasions. I think Czech pils is the exclusive offering with generous pours in proper glassware of about 6-8 different Czech pils. Even pils that a beer nerd may consider inferior are served so fresh and so perfectly that almost anything is outstanding if you are in the mood for hoppy session lager. Food was fantastic and true to Czech style. In short, Stockholm has its own mini Czech Republic. A little bit difficult to find this place however...I would consider it a hole in the wall by my standards. So go out looking for it and don’t give up!
A really friendly and cozy place with a wonderful staff. Very crowded almost every evening.
The beer selection is not big, about 10 different Czech beers on tap. Sometimes they have "beer festivals" when rather unique Czech beers are served.
The food is outstanding and cheap. I especially like the "Pragerschnitzel ".
I have visited Soldaten Svejk at least 50 times.
I like This place and if I lived here I would be regular here ! Only beers from Czech Rep with usual sospetcs on tap as svijansky, primator or Bernard .. Plus urquell unfiltered which is always good but here in this condition it’s even better .. The ambiance recall the old Czech boozer with dark wood and middle sized tables .. A place for drinkers and not for beergeeks ..
