Hostinec U Matěje Kotrby in Nové Město is a brilliant hostinec that offer a really good range of Czech meals and a superb range of well priced drinks. Located in Křemencova'this hostinec offer well priced meals in a superb environment with friendly staff.The inside has a brilliant music themed interior with superb seating options throughout the whole interior. We had just visited U Fleků and decided to have a meal in this excellent hostinec.Very lively when we visited but we didn't have a problem in finding a table.When we visited we had a fantastic Czech meal and beer's which were excellent and well priced. Hostinec U Matěje Kotrby is worth going to and very easy to find from Národní Divadlo tram stop it's a short walk..(This is my first review of Hostinec U Matěje Kotrby). Opening Hours. Monday-Dunday-11.30-Onwards. Public Transport. Tram Stop. Narodní Divaldo tram stop.

I love nothing better than wandering around the Old Town streets,taking in the great architecture and dropping into the fantastic traditional pubs that proliferate the Old Town,one pub that we dropped into is an old favourite of ours namely Hostinec U Mateje Kotrby . This is a traditional pub ,interior is superb ,dark wood features ,eclectic decor and furnishings ,a solid wood serving bar and plenty of seating options spread throughout this pub,all in all it's a great pub to unwind in. We were here on a Friday afternoon ,pub was busy with a great atmosphere ,we ordered beers from Pilsner Urquell Brewery ,these were served in excellent condition being iced gold and sparkling and with the distinctive foamy head so characteristic of the way Czech beers are poured and served,for a meal we chose pork in breadcrumbs with mashed potatoes and salad,this meal appeared in no time at all and was absolutely delicious . My meal was superb,pork in breadcrumbs is as a traditional meal you will taste in this wonderful city,so tasty,so filling and coupled with our delicious beers made for a great dining experience . We really enjoyed our meal and beers in here before we moved on and as on every previous visit to here we had a great time. Hostinec U Mateje Kotrby is easy to locate along Kremencova . Opening hours are; Monday to Sunday,open from 11.30am till very late . Well worth checking out if you're in the area.

Lovely Czech meal, friendly atmosphere and great service. Relaxed and quirky interior. Food served quickly, a mixed cheese starter, mains and a drink came to under £20 each.

Working nearby, I have occasionally had the lunchtime menu here, which was always pretty good. But I was embarrassed to have brought my friends there for dinner. The location worked for us, but the alarm bells should have started to ring when we asked for a reservation for 8 pm and were told that we could only be there for 1 hour...which they miraculously solved when we said no. Of course they didn't really have any bookings coming in at 9 pm. Service was appalling. Our group consisted of Czechs and long-term residents so this is not a case of not being used to Czech ways. Wait staff took beer orders and didn't ask those who didn't want beer what they would like. 3 of them and none capable or caring enough about the basics. We were practically having to rugby tackle the waitress who was more obsessed with clearing a table (which was not required for waiting guests) than in offering drinks. Rudeness to one of our party who had to go to the bar to finally order her drink. Condescending staff and a refusal to split the bill to allow us to pay individually by card. I have seen (subsequently) on Czech reviews the owner apologizing and saying the staff were all 'brigadnici' (trainees), but this doesn't seem to be fixed. The wait staff seemed to have been hired as pretty blondes, but they are the reason I can't recommend this restaurant. They are letting the kitchen staff down as the food was pretty good, though price wise, there is better for cheaper in this area so only go here if passing during the poledni (lunchtime) menu period.

This place is a rip off charging the double than the menu online and the one that we had been given. The hotel nearby gave us a 10% discount and they charged us almost the double. The most ridiculous Caesar salad with a chicken tasting like a grilled plastic bag. Just ridiculous! Long story short don’t take Under consideration discounts from hotels that it’s not even valid is a trick to send them tourists, their English is poor as in hospitality you would expect better service and welcoming staff! Nice environment but this is not enough! We would prefer to eat street food instead of this despite of the prices charged! Faulty marketing and misleading prices that proves that this place is a rip off and robery! They take the menu from you so if you want to come back to them there is gonna be a fuss and argue over another menu that they have the overpriced dishes! 10% tip for the service which is not worth it! They are sneaky and not even worth visiting! Nothing special. Guys have a nice meal in reasonable prices at Pork’s and try the pork knuckles and the cabbage salad, generous portions and good prices!

The restaurant was across the road from our hotel & we got a 10% discount voucher from the hotel. We both had burger & chips & I was recommended the Urquell lager which was excellent. We returned for a second visit on our last night so it must have been good.

My daughter ordered a chicken Caeser Salad and the majority of the chicken was pink. The waiter advised they boil the chicken and it SHOULD be ok. Not worth the chance ( 425 kc). Not a great explanation and no offer to rectify. Burger & Fries were good (372 KC) and a good price on Plzen beer (39kc for .5l) . But the pink chicken was a deal breaker. Would not recommend this restaraunt.

Awesome Restaurant with a lovely menu to cater for all tastes. Service was friendly and professional, prices were very reasonable and the food was fantastic! Highly recommend the pork knuckle 👌 The small bar next door was our favourite across all bars we visited in Prague, barman Leo was fantastic, served us up some great cocktails and took time to chat to us about local culture etc Would be my first stop on a return visit to Prague!

We were suggested this restaurant by our host at the hotel. Tereza and Petr were very kind, Petr also suggested us a very nice alternative to goulash that was unfortunately not availble when we had lunch there. We would recommend for meat quality and kindness.

My husband came to this bar with his friends in June and was very impressed with the service. We decided to visit Prague as a couple in November and returned to this bar. Great service by Marian and his team. We ordered a Bloody Mary cocktail (a favourite of ours) and were not disappointed, loved the flavours. Bloody Mary’s are a very difficult cocktail to make so was very impressed with this one! If visiting this bar and love Bloody Mary’s then do yourself a favour and order one!

Our hotel gave us 10% off this place and we attempted to eat here twice. The first time we walked in to every single table reserved and when we talked to staff they said they don't serve food, even though other customers around us were eating. The second time, we walked in, once again every single table was reserved only this time the staff did let us sit down. The menu however was extremely limited and we eventually walked out.

Great atmosphere. Outstanding food. I would highly recommend visiting here on your visit. Couldn’t have been happier with my steak tartare app and entree of steamed potatoes with the dill sauce. I would not normally have opted for the potato dish as an entree, except the server recommended it. Very happy I leaned into the suggestion.

We stumbled upon this gem on our first night in town, and what a delightful find it was! With a craving for traditional Czech cuisine, we couldn't have picked a better spot, conveniently located just opposite our hotel. The warm and friendly service added to the local ambiance, making us feel right at home. As for the food, it exceeded our expectations. Both of our meals were delicious, showcasing the authentic flavors of Czech cuisine. A perfect start to our trip. Highly recommended!

A Facebook group recommended U Matěje Kotrby, and we were not bydisappointed. We got a seat right away. Servers Maruska and Jarda were excellent; they were friendly and helpful. The food was superb. I got the cheesy meatball which was crispy and was accompanied with creamy potatoes. My husband had boar goulash and dumplings. The meat was tender and the bread dumplings were great to soak up the delicious sauce. Unfortunately, we were too full to eat dessert. I highly recommend U Matěje Kotrby!
