Only one microbrewery survived communism - U Fleků. They brew good dark lager. But now is the pub only for japan, german and russian tourist. The beer is good but 60 Kč for 0,4l beer is too much for normal people. Boring personal imposes becherovka liqouir on plate....Old harmonica player cant save my bad opinion
I avoided this place on two previous visits to Prague based on reviews such as the ones here, and now after visiting Iím kicking myself. The beer is FANTASTIC. Prices are high by Czech standards but that shouldnít deter anyone reading this. Service isnít great (deliberately giving us the least-filled glasses?) but it wonít ruin the visit. I didnít find it too touristy - obviously the patrons are almost exclusively tourists, but itís only like a tenth of the intensity of the Hofbršuhaus. Sitting out in the beer garden it was really pretty, and that beer.... damn.
The place is very touristy and chaotic. A lot of tourist groups drinking a lot and having fun. Live music inside consists of an harmonika player. They have just one beer, an excellent dark. Refuse to accept the local shnapps. The price is non cheap for the city standard. Anyway itís a must stop if you are in Prague.
Very nice deco and atmosphere. Too much tourists though, and very loud and croudy when visited the place ( spring 2007, on an friday afternoon). The beer was excellent, but you were constantly asked to buy the local schnapps.

stopped in for a 10am morning dunkel, and what a fine dunkel it was. our reward for drinking so early was that the place was empty of people, and so also empty of cigarette smoke. large rooms, long tables, interesting character but I canít say much about the patrons, good or bad, since there were none. worth visiting for Tmave 13, which I found to be quite good on two visits, though I hear others can have some harsh criticisms of itís cleanness or depth.

Every bit a tourist trap as everyone has told me before. Went there with my friends to have a picture taken with the HNK Hajduk Split plaque (yup, the best footie club in the world was founded there almost 100 years ago :D) and to finally try that famous beer. A big place, live music, groups of people eating and having fun around, plenty of staff, chaotic even. To cut the story short, you wonít get served outside one or two designated areas. Before getting to pay, you must endure the nagging to buy that liquor because itís "traditional". I steadily refused, not wanting to get more alcohol inside my system that my rating required, and that appeared to annoy the waiter a little. You donít go there alone for a beer or two, you go with a group as part of some package and have fun. Tick and go. Oh, and the beer was ok, good, but Iíd had better dunkels before.
Dark high wooden panels and furniture. People crammed and very close together in the front room. Space enough in the side room. Pleased to be away from the noisy front room where there even was a harmonika player. Was lured into drinking some kind liqour. Not the worst I had in that place. Guess it was vodka. Service was quick albeit a bit indifferent. Did not eat there as the noise from the front room was very annoying.
