I visited this famous/infamous place at 6pm on a Wednesday evening (end of March 2012). I confess to being a bit apprehensive after reading reviews (on here and elsewhere) but was determined to try it. As we entered through the main door we were steered in to the left (no choice). I suspect that most of it was closed off as it was relatively quiet. Fair enough, we found a couple of seats at a table (feel free to share a table in Prague!) and before long two mugs of dark lager arrived.

Firstly the beer; I have to say it is pretty damn good - nice quaffable brew with a nice head and some sweetness to it. Please note that it is served in a 0.4L (400ml) mugs and this serving size coupled with the price per mug makes it probably the most expensive beer in Prague (apart from hotels).

The place itself was quite nice; a medium sized room with dark panelled walls, dark wooden beamed ceiling hung with a couple of rustic type chandaliers. And there was a nice clock on the end wall. Rustic "beerhall" tables and chairs. No escaping the resident accordian playing man - I suppose it helps with the atmosphere they are trying to create.

Then later the waiter comes over offering the shots of whateveritis and understood when we politely but firmly declined. These are more expensive than the beer apparently.

I had a second beer while my companion was finishing theirs and enjoyed it. Been there, done that!

A famous beer hall. It should be visited when in Prague. Probably wonderful if you are in a large group. However if you are there with a couple of friends two beers will be sufficient.

Great historic brewery in Prague. They only serve one beer as they have since they first opened, but it is a delicious dark lager! Cool atmosphere including German style beer halls and live accordion music. Simple but tasty menu as well. Highly recommended if you are in the city!

I'm not sure what I can say about U Fleku that hasn't already been said, other than if you're on the fence you should go. It's an experience that shouldn't be missed.

It can get very busy but they're also very good at getting you in as quickly as possible. Go early if you don't want to wait in line, or at least try for an off-hour (remember this also depends on the season that you're there).

I personally loved the beer, and even my wife who's not into dark beers thought it was pretty good. We had some goulash and thought it was some of the best we'd had in Prague.

The ambiance is what makes it though. The rooms, the guests, the waiters, the wandering minstrels... all without a hint of being "touristy" while still being one of Prague's most touristy locations!

Absolutely not to be missed!
