Bredovský Dvůr

Just round the corner from the main post office, this Pilsner pub is ideal for a lunchtime beer

Restaurace Bredovský Dvůr is a great place to duck into for a beer and daily lunch specials (hotovky) while shopping in the center. It is, however, a bit dangerous.

Sporting an absolutely delicious tank Pilsner, good solid Czech food, of which the Koleno (roasted pork knee) is excellent, and a lively (and well-ventilated) atmosphere, it's easy to lose a few hours here.

Situated just around the corner from the main post office, Restaurace Bredovský Dvůr is a perfect downtown spot that won't break the bank. It can be crowded, though, so reservations are recommended for larger parties.

Just about perfect. On one visit it was slightly off but on all subsequent visits -- and there have been many -- it was right on.

Atmosphere: 8/10
Lively, clean, with interesting interior design. A popular place for workers from the neighborhood. The clientele is mostly Czech with a smattering of tourists.

Food: 6/10
Solid classics, a game section with daily offers, and a nice rotisserie in the back. Vegetarians can find a few good things on the menu, and the pastas are passable. A little too much reliance on Podravka (MSG) in soups and sauces makes some of the food a little blah, and some of the dishes seem a bit too ambitious for the kitchen. If you stick with roasted meat you'll be happy.

Culture & Friendliness: 9/10
Pleasant, friendly staff. English and German spoken.

Service: 9/10
Quick and efficient. As with most classic Pilsner places you don't ask for beer, you refuse it.

Bathrooms: 8/10
Definitely a rarity for a pub. Clean men's bathrooms with toilet paper. And locking doors! The ladies in our party also commented on the cleanliness.

Cleanliness of Taps: 9.5 out of 10
Polished and well-kept, just about as good as it gets.

OVERALL: 8.5 out of 10
"What a shame. The tank beer is delicious, the classic Czech fare -- meat, meat, meat -- is delectable, the decor unique and the terrace a pleasure. But the wait staff would rather have root canal than serve non Czechs. Been here twice in the past 12 months, and what would be a reasonably priced bill was, on both occasions, larded up with more than 20% hidden "extra" (tourist) charges -- bread, service charge -- we are not as stupid as you think..."
