This restaurant was suggested to us by our tour guide. So we decided to try it. The restaurant was really busy because of the tour groups in town and the wait staff was a bit stressed, but they got over it. We had 8 people in our group, but got to sit pretty close to each other and we were... More

The only restaurant we've been to that we found the waiter on duty, the most professional of all of them. Speaks very good English. Knows how to sell his menu. Well done!

We checked out a few other restaurants near by but they were full of patrons. "Fat Boys" was empty....that should have been a clue for us. Good variety of foods but nothing special. Served our purpose that day.

My husband and I arrived at this restaurant in search of a warm, hearty Czech meal. We were disappointed to find that most all of the specials were out of stock, save for the Ox tongue which we didn't fancy. We opted for pickled sausages and fresh bread. Indeed, the bread was fresh, however the sausages were rather ladden with... More

We were recommended to go here by our hotel as we were looking for a good Czech meal. We turned up just before 5pm and a male waiter took one look at me carrying my toddler and shook his head in a very flustered way and said they were full. I asked him how long we would have to wait... More

Thank you very much for feedback! We are realy sorry to hear you had such a unpleasant experience with one of our waiters. We are building our reputation of friendly local restaurant and abovementioned behaviour is clearly not in line with this. Person you met is no longer member of our team, so I hope incident of this kind will... More

This is a very small restaurant. The service is ok, but the waitresses were really swamped when we were there. They were literally running to the kitchen to pick up order. The food and beer were good. It was a nice lunch.

We came pretty late for lunch with hungry and hectic children, but we made it into a pleasant family lunch: Good service, excellent traditional food in authentic interior, dark draught beer and forest fruit lemonade is a must.

Recommended by ck shuttle driver out of goodwill. Had duck confit and the pork belly mains. Also ordered the egg soup. The 2 ladies were so busy when we came around 6plus. We had to find our own seats and take our own orders. Their smiles and courtesy came towards the end of our meal when the crowd dispersed and... More

The beef cheeks stewed with dark beer and clove served with celery puree roasted salisfy and confit garlic is A DELIGHT. Refined and really very tasty. The roasted ribs with piquant honey marinade is also worth a try, and there is plenty of meat to the ribs. The interior is quite basic with wooden tables and chairs, but we were... More
