The area
Neighbourhood: Malá Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the Kings route taken by future kings on their way to coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral. Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch shops and restaurants. Do not hesitate to turn a corner into any narrow street. You will suddenly find yourself in a calm and charming neighbourhood full of hidden gardens, parks with peacocks, fruit trees and ponds. As the neighbourhood is a home to Czech Parliament and many ministries, you can also run into well-dressed officials. If you are thirsty or hungry, it is the right place to be. Restaurants offer delicious traditional food and of course, the best Czech beers.

Duck dish was very good. But service is abrupt & transactional ( entire waitstaff is this way )
Jan 2020 • Couples
This appears to be popular place with the locals as well as the tourists who manage to find it. We found it via Yelp app ratings.

Half of the patrons drink only. The other half also order food. There are only 12 tables and one large group table with several areas for standing room / bar only. As a result, when they have advanced reservations, the number of available walk-in tables can be few - so keep this in mind if you are planning to go during peak dinner hours.

The service is quick which is good and bad. The food comes out quick, but the waiter just wants to quickly seat you, serve you bread, take your order, and get you to pay. No small talk. No welcome. Not even bothering to push the specials of the day. But both times we went for dinner, the server did take the time to emphasize in a very slow and deliberate manner - when delivering the check to us - that the “service tip was not included in the price”. I felt this was a bit insulting given how transactional ALL the waiters were throughout the meal. And so we just tipped 10% which I felt was MORE than generous. If they want a 15% tip, I do expect them to at least ask me how my meal was OR at least say “welcome” and/ or “thank you” for dining with us.

Nevertheless, the duck dish was good and the portion was generous. The atmosphere is lively and informal in a good way.

Good local bar and restaurant

Had drinks here a few times during recent visit as it was close to our hotel. Good place to sit and watch the comings and goings on the square. Beer was good. Ate here one evening and can highly recommend the local czech speciality of beef in a creamy sauce with cranberries

Rude but good food

The food here was good, at least the meat dishes. The fish was gross. Staff was super rude at first as well as we were getting a table.

Must be in Prague!

Each time I’m visiting Prague with friends MB is on my list “where to eat”. Absolutely perfect Czech meals and good beer.

My favorite from their menu is duck and goulash soup.

And prices. As for city center very low.

It was ok
Dec 2017 • Couples
Sat down for dinner on new years eve with my girlfriend. The place was crowded as expected and very loud. The food took a long time to arrive and tasted average.
The staff looked tired and annoyed throughout. Not a bad place, but not the best of Prague by a long shot.

Great Czech food and drink, reasonably priced

I asked at the front desk of my hostel about a nearby restaurant with local beer. This was their recommendation. Nice place, right at the tram stop, great people watching, delicious food, cold beer. I went back for lunch the next day!

Perfect ending to our visit

A wonderful spot to relax with true Czech food and excellent beer. Easy to find immediately off the tram stop and not a tourist in site. Excellent English speaking staff. Recommended highly.

We've had the Wiener Schnitzel and Gnocchi with Sheep's Cheese. It was delicious! Two big chugs of Czech beer (Pilsner Urquell) and we were done. Great atmosphere and nice staff. Very affordable too!

Amazing!!

We came across this place after searching for somewhere to eat for ages, it looked like it was full of locals = in my mind it must be good.
The waitress was very assertive and friendly, we ordered a light bite 'creamy potatoes' oh my they were wonderful and it came with fresh roasted vegetables. Also had a beautiful glass of red wine. We were really pleased and pleasantly surprised how high the quality of the food was, as walking past it you would just see it as a pub. It was so much nicer than the night before and that was good plus it was half the price! Definitely recommend this place to anybody, if I ever go back to Prague this place would be the top of my list.
