One word: WAU. It was actually secret tip from local friend. It takes some time and orientation to get there, It takes some luck to find empty seat, but it does worth it. For us the most authentic pub in Prague. History, nice people, and the best beer is not Pilsneur. Best beer is KOZEL. One of the few places... More

This is really one of the best pubs in Prague. I mean really authentic, old style, out of time pub. Excellent beer. Normal (Czech) prices, whatever it means. And normal people. As always. I hope this song will remain the same.

If you really want to see how to enjoy Czech beer in a Czech place - you need to come here! The place, the service is absolutely amazing. The menu is short but you will get here all the classic starters - go excellent with beer! The place is totally genuine!

Note: This review is based on visiting this establishment 10s if not 100s of times with my buddies when I lived in Prague. I haven't been back here since 2012. For some unknown reason, one of the very best beers in Prague--and one of the cheapest!--can be had in one of the most touristy parts of Prague. Trying to get... More

It's a great place to go for a beer, cheap, atmospheric and always full of locals. We really enjoyed their tlačenka (we ordered three in a row for just two of us!), and the beer (Kozel) was really good, too.

This was the most epic pub during my "tour de beer" in Prague. I visited almost 15 typical historical beer pubs in Prague and this one was very special. Historic and quite atmosphere, perfect beer and very tasty beer "snacks". I really recommend.

We never miss a visit to 'The Ox' when we visit Prague. Good beer, tasty food, prompt service. Shame about the cigarette smoke.

If you want to feel Prague you have to go there and order both type of beers! I will come back here in my next trip to Prague.

Others have committed that this place is quite touristy. Well, I found it the least touristy of the many drinking venues I visited on my trip to Prague- even though I was a tourist! There are certainly no concessions to the tourist. This is a proper Prague drinking establishment and although the beer could never manage to hit the heights... More

This place has for sure the best Kozel in Prague! and try řezané (half dark, half blond) its just to die for!!! If you want something small to eat, they have nice sausages made on fire. And it is right next to Prague castle, and still really cheap!

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
