Nie wiem czy dobrze trafilismy, bo zamiast knajpy byla restauracja przy-browariana w budynku dawnej poczty (to chyba od niedawna). Wystroj ciekawy i elegancki, jedzenie w menu raczej drogie, lecz piwo w normalnej cenie i smaczne. Cztery albo piec do wyboru. Obsluga sympatyczna.
This place was a bit special for me. It counts #1000 on my "visited brewery" list. So, I really hoped it wouldn’t disappoint me and in fact the place was quite good. Of 7 local brews I didn’t like only the lightest one (probably as it was served too cold) & weiss. All other 5 brews were really good, so I was a happy customer.
Hot day - terrace was a big win, nice big parasols to keep us polar bears happy. Beware the differences between the (English) menus and chalk boards, all the beers have 2 slightly different names, but it’s quite easy to pair them up. (e.g. "Wenceslas" = "Svatovaclavsky"). Beer quality was spoilt by dodgy wacky recipes - the fruits really didn’t do it for me. Staff brought food and beer, and they took plastic, we don’t need much more than that to keep us happy. Food was decent tavern fare, a mixed meat snack plate was greasy and salty and therefore actually rather decent. I’d come here again, certainly.
Nice place, one of the best I went to. The 10ş is possibly the best value beer in the city at 25kr a pint, and all the other four types I tried hit the spot too. Decent food at reasonable prices served by friendly efficient staff. Very well worth a visit.
Nice brew pub within walking distance of the old city centre. Weird location and entry (ground floor of an apartment building, through the apartment entry hall), but once inside very spacious yet cosy as well. Extensive list of beers, supposedly all home made (who am I to verify this ;-) ). Went there two nights. First night service was excellent, given the fact that this was one of the only fluently English speaking waiters we encountered in Moravia, it was probably a student doing a summer job. The second night service was terrible. An unfriendly big bossy girl, only calling her girl because of her apparent age. She refused to give us some snacks because the kitchen was closed, although the night before this had not been a problem, as long as we sticked to the cold snacks only. Nope, not so nice. Food was ok, but like I said, we only got snacks. PRO-TIP for people with notions of French: Lard is not bacon but just a pot of pig grease. :p Anyway, totally worth to check out if you’re in Olomouc. I mean, what else are you gonna do? :p
Établissement visité le mardi 5 mars vers 19h30. Ambiance: Grand local avec vue sur les cuves en cuivre. L’endroit est non fumeur. La clientčle est principalement étudiante. Service: Menu et service en anglais. Le service est trčs lent par contre. Sélection: 7 bičres maisons en fűt. Nourriture: Boeuf aux champignons. (205e rating d’établissement)
The place itself is pretty ugly - old decor low ceilings and just a weird retirement home feel to it all. The crowd however, was rather pleasing to the eye. Our waiter was very friendly, english menus, great service in english. The food was good, I had salmon which was well prepared and the beers were very well made and in great shape (They make sure you take it as seriously as they do). An Olomouc must.
Loads of students hanging out here, mostly beautiful, educated young women too. Service was friendly and efficient as well. House brews are excellent, especially the two Svetlys which are crisp and very hoppy. Food was very good quality for Czechia with a few inspired dishes too (tvaruzky cheese topped with blackberry jam and whipped cream? Sure!). I’d come back in a heartbeat. What started out as an evening with no expectations ending up being a show-stealer.
