Many of the traditional Czech pubs that once occupied just about every corner in the Old Town have sadly given way to shops selling glass and t-shirts. This one is a survivor, though it's had to make some concessions to the tourist trade—greatly expanding its seating capacity and losing some atmosphere in the process—in order to make it. That said, it's still got a great Old Town location and very good Pilsner Urquell beer on tap, and is big enough to accommodate groups of virtually any size. The Czech food, including the goulash and lots of pork dishes, is not bad if you need something to bolster your stomach amid the buckets of beer.
