Extensive beer and Czech lager menu. Home cooked food. Friendly staff. Unpretentious. Not tourist-y despite being by the river Liffey

This place is a real find - authentic Czech/Central European food, and of course fabulous beer. When you are tired of the Guinness, come in for some Czech beer on tap.

Food good Had Ribeye and my wife had Chicken Burger very nice. They were very busy with a party that was in so slight delay in service but were very apologetic about it. There really wasn't that much of a delay

We had lunch here and couldn't believe how empty it was. We had the Club Sandwich and chips with a Coke at it was€20+. For Dublin, probably not that much above the norm, but it was just so average. Crispy bacon being stringy and fatty and not crispy is probably the biggest let down. Hard to rate atmosphere as we... More

Thank you for your review. We try to make each of our meals special. The bread for the dinner sandwich is from local bakery and it's served with hand cut chips. I can see why stringy bacon can lead to disappointment and will point it out to the chef. We hope that you will give us another try in the... More

Ate here on a very busy night and the service was friendly and quick. 2 course special came out at the appropriate times and was the most delicious duck I've ever had! Not overly pricey and a great atmosphere! Recommended!

Nice to see some Czech & Slovak food in Dublin! I love other cuisines but it is hard to find this type of food and it is very satisfying for sure. Try the Halushky with the tangy sheep cheese (a rare find outside Eastern Europe) & bacon. Wash it down with a Pilsner Urquell! I only wish there was one... More
