    A really good traditional czech food. Cool decor with the painting fresco on the walls, good atmosphere, reasonable prices, friendly staff. The food and beer were delicious! . For overall value for money was one of the best places we visited.

    You could not ask for better service. Seems popular with locals as well.

    Note: 10% service charge will be incl.on top of the bill.

    Favorite Dish: Duck with sour cabbage was delicious.

    Well worth a visit.

    Highly Recommended!

    U Bubenicko (Old Bohemian Pub): Don't miss the Old Bohemian food and atmosphere.

    The food was excellent traditional Czech, in generous portions, and the service was friendly and good. The prices were reasonable and fair. The decor is old Bohemian pub rustic style and on some nights, there is music there. We found it by accident, just walking and sightseeing and it was lunch time. We like it so well, we went back the next night for dinner.

    Favorite Dish: We were trying traditional Czech dishes and we had a potato and mushroom soup, followed by a fish dish, which was very good.

    U Bubenicku: Unpretentious pub....

    Good little pub serving excellent beer and well-cooked standard pub food (food to go with beer, main dishes, Czech & foreign etc etc). Rustic tables, filled up quite quickly with young-ish locals after 7pm (always a good sign), pleasant service. Menu has English translations, and the staff also speak some English (which is helpful).

    I had 'Moravian sparrow' which is basically a type of stew, with bread dumplings and pickled cabbage (see rather wibbly photo). With two x 0.3l of dark beer it came to around 3GBP (146CK). One cannot possibly complain about that!

    Well worth a visit, far less touristy than pubs in the Stare Mesto/Wenceslas Square area.

    At last a place that is still serving beer at the prices we all used to remember Prague for!!! With a pint of Pilsner at only 25Kr (60p) you really can't go wrong! Bubenicku is a large beerhall situated on the ground floor of a tennement block decorated with some impressive chunky statues.
    It's the sort no-nonsense, functional but comfortable pub that used to be on every corner. There are two rooms at right angles to one another. The one closer to the bar - surprise, surprise - is preferred by the more serious beer drinkers. The customers seem respectable and Czech, a pleasant combination so close to the centre. In a radical departure from convention, the tablecloths here are brown and white. Handily placed just around the corner from U Flekù, it provides an escape from that pub's high prices and flocks of tourists.

    Favorite Dish: We didn't have anything to eat there, we just enjoyed the beer!

    This place has bittersweet memories for me. On my first visit in 1997, they had the hard to find Herod Dark 13, one of the very finest of Czech beers and the food was good and inexpensive, but there was a mysterious cover charge and some other inexplicable costs as well. I wrote it off to being a tourist in a local place and it didn't amount to much more than a couple dollars. It was a small price to pay to have this magnificent beer that I had not been able to find anywhere else. On this second visit, the place was spruced up quite a bit and it was now a Pilsner Urquell outlet. The food was still excellent and cheap and there were still some discrepancies on the bill but without the Herod on tap, not sure I would go back.

    Favorite Dish: Duck with what else, knedley (bread dumplings).
