In a country where brewing beer is an art, this pub and restaurant serves its own unique selection of microbrews with confidence. Light, dark, and mixed Czech-style pivo are poured by the half liter while more specialized coffee, banana and sour cherry beer is served in smaller portions. However, beer is not the only reason to visit. A large menu of Czech favorites is offered at prices sure to make you grin. Choose between standard or large portions from 90Kc to 150Kc per meal. Don't forget to ask your server about the 5l take-home kegs of beer with built-in taps!
First of all, I do like beer...but not as much as to visit the place with the following limitations:
1. Extremely stuffy and hot atmosphere whereas the outside temperature was about 22C. Maybe it was just unlucky moment when air conditioning was off for some reason, but I could hardly wait the bill to get out to stop sweating.
2. There were two of us and when there was the table with 4 seats the waiter refused to give us separate place instead offering us the table with two persons (couple) already seating there. It was very uncomfortable for them and for us to sit together since were complete strangers.
3. The service was poor. No smiles, no personal approach at all. "Eat, drink...if not just go away ....there will be others.."
Resume. You have to be extreme lover of beer to enjoy the place....
Above all the beer. There are some eight or nine lagers brewed next to the restaurant. The pale lager is slightly cloudy and gorgeous. The dark one is heavenly. Then there are fascinating herbal and fruit beers. A green nettle beer is sometimes available.
One oddity to try is "Samp", pronounced SHAMP. It comes looking like a champagne bottle. It pours and behaves like champagne in the glass and, blow me over, it almost tastes like champagne.Absolutely delicious and only 3.5 ABV.
Instead of jugs a group's beer comes in tall tubes with a tap at the bottom.
This is certainly a place where I would visit again and again.
Excellent choice of Beer's,Light or Dark and unfiltered also fruit beer's
On the number of occasion's we visited we found it difficult to get a table immediately(we then had to share with other diner's) but if you are prepared to wait then it will be well worth it.
If you don't want to wait for a table then ask to stand at the small bar and sample some of the great beer's on offer.
I am an American living and working in Prague. I work right across the street and go there all the time. Great beer. Its also very Czech but a good mixture of people. They have a smoking and nonsmoking section, and the food is good if your in to "man food". Further it is cheap...$5 dollars for a good meal.
Okay, besides the wonderfulness of the nonsmoking section, the REAL story is the beer. As another reviewer said, don't be put off by the color or the name: TRY THE NETTLE BEER. Coffee flavor is also a definite must-try. Personally, I thought the banana flavor was dreadful, but different strokes, and all that.
For those less beerly-inclined, try the "champagne beer" for the sweeter taste and lighter mouth feel. But then, what are you doing in Prague if you're NOT beerly-inclined?
Food is good, not great. Get the vepřo-knedlo-zelo and you can't go wrong.
Friendly people, terrific beers, reasonable prices. Thumbs up.
One of the best experiences in Prague when my husband and I visited Pivovarski Dum. Warm greeting at the door. Menues in any language you wish. Food and beer are absolutely the greatest, and it is extremely cheap. (Ex. After having wonderful meals, coffees and splitting 9 beers, the final bill with tip was less than $25). We went back 3 times while being in Prague for 2 weeks. Just take a cab or a tram to 15 Lipova and enjoy.
