This is a nice traditional Czech restaurant entitled to the national literary hero Švejk. Food is nice: meat is good in every form. I found a bit disappointing the side dishes, mainly the fried stuff: everything is frozen while this restaurant should serve freshly fried potatoes. Anyway I had the best svičková ever here so my score is high and... More

A simple little pub with lovely Bohemian atmosphere - supported by traditional music from yesteryear. Great beer and Sveijk as the main theme, well done. And the only late night bar if you wanted to finish off the day with a quiet drink.

Great local food, beer and friendly service. English menus and staff with some English made it a very simple matter to get a good meal. We went for the Bohemian platter (lots of flavours) and deer with cranberry (simple and tasty). I wouldn't recommend the side vegetables, as they seemed to just be a supermarket frozen blend. However, everything else... More

Very delicious dinner at fair price. Generous portions. Polite staff and fast service, payment by card possible. Booked table over the phone (however, booking in advance necessary only during the high season April -October). Staff speaks German too.

This serves nice Czech food and it's cozy and pleasent.Unlike some of the other reviews I found the staff okay and fairly friendly. The food comes pretty promptly as well. I liked the restaurant and had no issues at all with it. The prices are fair as well for a tourist spot.

We had an appointment at the Beer Spa next door that was booked an hour later than expected, so we stopped into this place for a bite. We had every intention of ordering a full meal, but then the service started dragging. First, we waited 15 minutes for a seat, while servers bustled by us. Finally we get seated in... More

Restaurant U Svejka was recommanded to us via our hotel. It is a nice restaurant, not haute cuisine, but I think typical Czech. Prices are fair.
