From Tripadvisor.com reviews of Original Švejk restaurant:
Authentic, good, friendly: “Very Authentic, and very good. Just like it looked 15 yrs ago or possibly 50 too. Simple what makes it special among the snobbish places nowadays. Wish it always remain a like it is today.”
Typical old Czech place with old atmosphere: “Was a group of 28 people here end of last month and if more people are here then the atmosphere is better and better. Amazing old traditional Czech kitchen with goose leg and goose liver prepared on very tasty way. One of the best places in Prague for Pilsner Urquell beer since it is not even from barrel, but direct from the tank deliver tank to tank the beer have excellent taste. I have spend many evenings here at the dinners with various amount of people and not one time disappointed. Also the harmonica player Miloš is one of the best players in town and he is there all the time. He play fantastic music and signing as well all traditional songs. This place have the atmosphere in the walls with a long tradition. You feel it directly on entry. Make a visit and do not forgot to make a taste of local specialties. Do not order just one meal.”
