Walked in twice; first time WAAAY too busy and walked out. Second time sat at small bar and had some nice solid Czech classic styles (lezak and polotmavy). Music and videos on flat screen were Bruce Springsteen and Alanis Morrisette; time warp?) Solid modern interpretation of classics Czech pub/pivovar. Did not eat.
Very nice restaurant with interesting painted walls. But crowded. It’s recommended to book a table or visit early afternoon if you want to sit (once was absolutely full even on 4p.m.). Service is better upstairs. Quite good selection of their own beers, but after rise of prices on december 2016 is value for money unsatisfactory. But still, I like this place.
Revisited Jan 2017:
Visited on my own in Jan 2017. I walked in and the place was no more than 25% full. The manager came up to me and asked if he could help. I asked for a table for one or maybe just a bar stool. There were a small number of small tables that were already taken and a couple of bar stools that were being used, but plenty of seats around larger tables. The manager refused to find another stool to let me sit at the bar because they "needed to work there" despite the place being very quiet and he refused to give me a seat at a larger table... that given the lateness in the evening and the extreme weather conditions he was unlikely to fill. What he did offer me though was a beer to drink outside in the sub zero temperatures where it was also snowing! Czech hospitality? You won’t be finding it here I’m afraid but there are many other places close by where you will.
A modern Bohemian style brewpub close to the Old Town Square. Seats a good 50 people so it’s not so small. They normally have six draft beers on tap and they sell bottles in the brewery shop over the road. Great Czech food, great service and solid wi-fi. Considering the location, prices are very reasonable too. Most beers are served in 0.25 or 0.3L glasses, so ideal for ticking. This place is now firmly on my Prague map.
Saturday evening and quite crowded but there was plenty of space upstairs. Refused service at the bar because there were too many people. Not directed upstairs. When upstairs was suggested by another customer the greeting was to be ignored. Eventually found a place to sit (20 minutes in by this point). Another 5 minutes to be asked what beer I wanted, another 5 minutes for it to be delivered so swiftly that my food order could not be taken. Three waiters serving 20 customers at this stage. I had physically to touch a waiter to get my one-dish food order in. The beers were OK but not outstanding. The Golden Tiger opposite and U Konstatu 50 metres away were eons ahead for service and beer.

Time to time visited Large stylish brewpub and restaurant on three floors of old Prague house. Interesting painting on walls. Six taps, fine service. Pleasant place.
Wonderful efficient service - once we’d primed the staff to let them know that we would want try all of the beers, as soon as one of our glasses was empty, one of the staff would pour the next one and deliver it to us with a description of what it was. And they weren’t empty at the time, there was other work to do. Best of all, they were very good beers on the whole. Prices were a little touristy, but you could tell you were getting quality. And that includes the food too - delicious. Environment was a pleasant little restuarant feel, perhaps spoilt by having the news/sports channels on a few TVs dotted around the place. We scoped this place in advance as Marduk was suffering, but happily had dupes of the earlier beers when he finally arrived - more good beer is always a nice way to start the day! Great place, definitely revisit-worthy.
