This is a must visit if you're in prague. It is touristy, but it is old and serves some great beer and food. It was a little pricier than most places I visited too, which meant it cost about $30 for two meals, one dessert and 4 beers including tax and tip. I sat out in the beer garden because it was a nice day. Nice relaxed atmosphere and you can tell the place is old. Some live music to set the mood as well. Don't come here if you want selection. they have one beer and that is it. Their own dark lager, but well worth the trip to sample. The food selection is slightly larger and I would give this a 3. The food is very good. I enjoyed some smoked pork with red cabbage and bread dumplings and topped that off with apple strudel. The service was prompt and friendly. Just be careful that they bring around food and spirits that you will have to pay for if you take it. So only take what you want to pay for. Over all, a great place to visit.

U Fleku is good for only one thing, it's fantastic beer. If I could I would just take a growler and drink it out on the corner. I sat outside in a small courtyard surrounded by drunken tourists. A bad oompah band played their poor little hearts out.

Servis was moderate, and the food looked awful so we didn't try it. Beer was expensive by czech standards, moderate-cheap by american standards.

There is a beer musuem there, didn't get to see it but I hope to on my next visit.

Yes, as awful as this place is, the beer is simply that good. I will go back just for the beer.

Said many times before. Fab beer, crap food. Very touristy. The biggest bar I've been to in Prague, with both indoor and outdoor seating. I sat outdoors, in the center of the building, I thought that was fairly unique. They had a tuba band playing, I guess for the purpose of giving the place a German feel. I was surrounded by people who spoke anything but Czech, this is not a place for the locals (and 32 crowns a beer, that is expected, as most local pubs charge around 15). That is not to say the beer wasn't worth it, please see my review :-). The menu was in pictures for the Czech illiterate, and I swear they didn't even try to present the PICTURES well, never mind the food. They also have a gift shop as you leave, somewhat unique for a pub. Highly recommended, but only for the beer.

What a place. The whole setting has 1200 seating places (not just the brewpub though). U Fleku is NOT like any other pub. If u are into the English Style pubs and you can't stand anything different then this is not your pub. A great place with a garden at the back yard to sit and enjoy your beer. I went there for lunch and it had a lot of tourists enjoying their beers and food. This place must be darn great in summer time and especially the nights. They serve only one beer their own brewed dark beer. The beer is excellent. It also has a shop on your way out to buy any souvenirs. I bought a U Fleku beer glass for my collection. Great brew house/beer garden!!!

Whilst records state that the original brewing rights for the U Fleku are dated 1499, it is highly probably brewing took place here long before then. 1499 is the official date though & so the U Fleku celebrated its 500th Birthday recently. It is comprised of many rooms, but these are usually reserved for special functions or coach parties. The casual visitor will more than likely be ushered, or drawn by the noise, to the centrally located open air area courtyard, this houses many long bench tables and a few trees!. Your beer will be brought to you by one of the many suited waiters - you do not have to order it, just sit down. When I first came here in 1992, we ran a table tab on the back of a beer mat, however, it appears this practise has ceased somewhat, and it is now customary to pay the waiter for the beer on delivery.
Choice is limited, just the One House Beer. But what a Beer!!. A dark, spicy brew that comes in a 0.4 ltr glass and costs (2002) 49 Kcs, which is ~$1.60. It is expensive, at least twice that of anywhere else in Prague–but the beer here is simply the one of the best dark beers in the Czech Republic. The surroundings are excellent and an imbibational inspiration. If you walk here you will no doubt pass the many rows of German Coaches parked outside. The U Fleku is very commercial now, & it clearly caters for parties of Germans, who have a very cheap drinking outlet for excellent beer that is not very far from home. Souvenirs can be bought on the way out (right hand side booth as you leave).
Put simply, this place is a legend, sure it has changed over the years and it is commercial, but then, so now is Prague. It is still a "Must Do" if you ever find yourself wondering aimlessly around the capitol with time on your hands. The U Fleku serves arguably one on the best Dark Beers in the Czech Republic & is the Best Beer Hall in Europe outside of Germany IMVHO.
