    Satlava: Medieval Tavern Atmosphere

    by JetlagCity Updated Feb 4, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    inside Satlava

    Satlava had excellent food and a great medieval atmosphere, too. It's in a cellar-like space, with only candles for light, and meat cooked on an open fire. I really enjoyed hanging out here!

    Meat dominates the menu. Ours was juicy and flavorful - try the wild boar if you get the chance, with a mug of the original Budweiser beer, Budvar, from the neighboring town of Ceske Budejovice. It's a lot more flavorful than the American version of Budweiser!

    This is a very popular place, so it's probably best to get reservations.

    U Dwau Maryi: Good service, good prices, antique atmosphere!

    U Dwau Maryi

    This is a lovely old restored medieval building on a side street in the heart of the Old Town. Sitting upstairs you also get a great view of the river. It has a nice quiet atmosphere, some music playing but not drowning out conversation.

    Prices are moderate for the Czech Republic, so basically quite cheap. We just had beer here, but the food looked good and the service was excellent. Choice of light and dark beers, apparently from the oldest brewery in the Czech Republic.

    Very friendly service and the medieval building's atmosphere made this place one of my favourites in Cesky Krumlov.

    Krcma v Satlasvske: Medieval Style BBQ Cellar

    by kit_mc Updated Jan 7, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Boyf enjoying meatfest

    This place offers great food at reasonable prices. The service was a little slow, very slow, but the food made up for it. Medieval style cellar with axes and swords on the bare stone walls kind of liven things up. Mind your head...

    Sit towards the back of the restaurant as the open BBQ, though interesting to watch, can get a bit too smoky.

    Favorite Dish: We had a great mixed grilled platter at 380 crowns. A real meatfest! Enjoy it with a beer.

    Hotel Ruze Restaurant

    by Krumlovgirl Updated Sep 10, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although there was a large tour group finishing up and we entered five minutes before closing time, the staff at the Hotel Ruze restaurant could not have been more helpful or accommodating. Unfortunately, our first choices for dinner were un available since they had also been the first choices of the people before us. I ended up with pasta by default and it was amazing. The plate was huge and after eating on it for thirty minutes I hadn't even finished a third of it. My dinner companions were also very expressive regarding the quality of their food.

    The most impressive aspect of the restaurant is definitely the decor. It is akin to stepping back into a medieval castle and the architecture of the restaurant alone is worth taking a peek at. First class service and dining all the way!

    Favorite Dish: In December of 2005 we had Christmas dinner at the Hotel Ruze. The price averaged out to about $20 per person and it was absolutely wonderful. You have to have reservations in advance, but the service, food, and atmosphere was first class. It is beautifully decorated during the Christmas season as well, and definitely worth the added expense.

    U Klastera Cafe: Cake for breakfast

    U Klastera Cafe

    This is a small coffee shop on a small side street opposite the Chateau. We popped in here fairly early to grab something for breakfast and settled on their rather nice cakes. Cake and a Latte for around 55 - 60SK.

    Favorite Dish: Cake! Chocolate cake!

    by iwys Written Dec 15, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurace u Pisare Jana has a wonderful location. You can sit on the terrace overloooking the Vltava River, eating great food and drinking local wine. They also have Eggenberg beer.

    Favorite Dish: The grilled trout was excellent, accompanied by a glass or two of Muller Thurgau.

    roasting fire

    this interesting restaurant-tavern is located in the upper castle gardens near the castle theatre. what is unique about this restaurant is that when you order a meat dish they roast it for you on a fire in the center of the restaurant. very good czech food moderately priced. also good czech beer selection. a very unique place to visit in cesky krumlov.

    Šatlavá: The best place in town!

    Inside the restaurant

    It's hard to get in, it's hard even to book it, but if you do, you are in the nicest restaurant you can find in Český Krumlov!
    Here there were the old prison cells of the medieval town, now it's a restaurant, but it seems that time has stopped!
    Great food, great atmosphere, often great live music too, it's really a MUST in Český Krumlov, don't miss it for any reason!

    Cikanska Jizba: A mean gulas!

    by riika Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cikanska Jizba is a gypsy restaurant that serves a plate full of mouth-watering spicy gulas to perfection! It's a very cozy atmosphere I'm counting down the days until I can eat there again! Of course they have many other czech specialties as well! Don't forget the local Eggenberg beer as well! :) They also have a live gypsy music in the evenings!

    Favorite Dish: The gypsy gulas!

    Satlava Karcma: Best Restaurant Ever

    by jahty Written Nov 29, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is a throwback to when food was prepared on a fire. It has a very medieval feel as it is in a cellar, with a big wooden door. There is also medieval armor all around the place. The tables are wooden and fit in with the atmosphere. The service is good, but not great. The food however is fantastic. This place alone is reason enough to make a trip back to Krumlov.

    Favorite Dish: I got the meat sampler both times and it was too good to ever order anything else. Other people in our group got the sausage and the garlic soup, all of which was awesome

    Any popular restaurant: Make reservations if it is mentioned in books

    by sunshine9689 Updated Oct 25, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We found ourselves struggling to find a table at any decent restaurant in town. Many were reserved for lunch by tour groups. Dinner time was not easy too.

    So, if you plan on going to popular places that are mentioned in Lonely Planet and other travel resources (for example, Na Louzi and Krcma V Satlavske), call first and reserve the table or you will be roaming the town, wasting your time like we did.

    PHONE #s:
    a) Na Louzi: 380-711-280.
    b) Krcma V Satlavske: 380-713-344.

    If you do not have an access to a phone, then try to beat the crowd by either coming earlier or later than usual times for lunch/dinner.
    12pm - 1.30pm is the worst time to go for lunch.

    This is the first place that we ate at in Krumlov, and it set the standard for everywhere else. I had chicken covered with cheese sauce, a salad, homemade bread, a glass of wine, a Pepsi, and chocolate crepes for about $6. I was very hungry.

    Favorite Dish: What do I suggest you try? Do like we did-try one of everything. We ate there twice on our trip and wasn't disappointed either time.

    This is yet another restaurant in Cesky Krumlov that cooks your meat over the fireplace. Unfortunately it was too busy for us to sit in the fireplace room. We got to sit in the dark dungeon room instead (cozy, but dark!). One of the neat things about this place was the pottery they used for dishes.

    Favorite Dish: Garlic soup in a bread bowl
