We spent a lovely evening here. I had looked at it from the outside several times and assumed it was a touristy place. Well it is, but the ambiance, service, and food here are very good. Local Czech fare well prepared and delicious. Would definitely come again. Good for couples or small groups.

TripAdvisor notes that this establishment is open until 11 pm. It was not -- at least tonight, when we went there at 10:20 and were told that it was closed. The restaurant is on the town square, looks quaint inside.

The service was good and the food was delicious. I had chicken with melted cheese that tasted amazing. There are many czech options to choose from in the menu.

Mastal is a great restaurant with an excellent value for money offers, especially if you are into grilled meats. I had a carp with rosemary and mashed potatoes. Delicious. The beer from nearby Budweiser ( do not confuse with American one) pairs well with the Czech specials. The service is personal and above local standards. I will come back.

We had pork knuckle here and it was very average compared to other restaurants. The owners are rude, impatient, and intimidating. They forced us to tip, and even though we did tip they looked unhappy. The restaurant was full of tourists which makes sense why they don't care about individuals.

It is a traditional restaurant. The service was OK. The food came fast enough but it was nothing special. The roasted duck was really dried and over cooked. The pork knee, was good and really generous. We ordered also some veal soup with liver dumplings, which was decent and some garlic soup, which was not so good. Very crowded restaurant,... More

We decided to eat at this restaurant because of the roast duck specialty. We were seated promptly and the staff, although a bit cool, dealt with us in a reasonable time. Our food arrived quite quickly, but it was way over cooked. The duck was dried out and more than a little chewy. It tasted like it had been cooked... More

This place is a bit hard to find and when you get there it is a lot bigger than meets the eye. The atmosphere is really inviting. What you get is really good basic Czech food served by friendly staff even though when we arrived the place was packed out and the staff rushed off their feet. You get more... More

The interior of this restaurant is beautiful, build in a historic style and with the fire place it feels nice and comfy inside. Unfortunately, this is the only positive thing I have to say about this place, the rest was not so nice. After we sat it took about 10 minutes for the waitress to show up and when she... More

Enjoyed this restaurant with our Gate 1 River cruise tour. Food was very good and loved the cave decor - very medievel. Fish dish was served with the whole fish, port chops were nice and moist. Unique opportunity to dine here.
