Eggenberg Pivovar Reviews & Ratings
Very nice meal, washed down with delicious locally brewed beer. Service was fast, with sufficient English and German to make ordering food and drinks simple. Highly recommended. 😊
Very cool brewery (since 1560) atmosphere, though no sings if actual machinery, either used or for display. Food was good and the beer very tasty (you can get unfiltered one) and the waitress was kind. The photo is taken at 21:30, right after the kitchen was already closed.
As I mentioned in the rafting tour post, this is one of the class spots to stop for a bite and a drink along the way down the Vltava. Set in a beautiful, historic building, you'll eat family style with other guests - probably rafting groups if you're here in the summer. Stop in, have a drink and meet a friend!
Extremely slow service, mediocre food, I was very disappointed.
Eggenberg beer! Do I have to say more? Awesome!
