    Authentic Czech food. It’s difficult to find Glutenfree traditional cuisine so please go here. Please note that there is a separate glutenfree menu (you have to ask for it). Here you can have goulash, pork knee, various kinds of schnitzel in an authentic restaurant. Most of the people were not eating glutenfree which I see as a good sign. I understood that the owners had two day Byers’s (??)), one with Celiac disease and the other with Crohn’s), hence the glutenfree menu. They have a gluten removed beer, Bernard’s lager. I had chicken schnitzel, pork knee, gnocchi and apple strudel. The glutenfree menu is huge! Go when you’re hungry! Note: for irony, one of the largest beer halls is next door, nothing but gluten there!

    I died and went to heaven!!! It was so exciting to be able to experience Czech food with my family! We were able to share. However, I left hating myself because I ate entirely too much!

    A large gluten free menu with traditional Czech dishes. Some of those items are made with a low gluten barley but are marked A1 with an allergen disclaimer so be sure to avoid those items.

    Amazing gf options. (Beware 1-2 things on their extensive GF menu had an A1 allergy, noting slight gluten ingredient) tried gf pork schnitzel and the gf beef goulash entree with mashed potatoes, followed by the gf fruit dumplings. The texture on the dumplings was like a sweet roll, oh so chewy, and possibly the best gf dessert I've had anywhere.

    When we walked in we were asked if we wanted a gluten free menu. The menu had many choices of Czech specialties. I had roast duck with dumplings and cabbage but I could have had schnitzel. The food was delicious and the portion was large.

    Great Czech restaurant! I was happily surprised when I sat down the waiter asked me if I wanted a regular menu or a gf menu! I have never had that happen anywhere (I usually have to ask for a gf menu or for what dishes are gf). The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. The food was delicious and authentic! My plate even came out with a little flag sticking in it saying gf. It was delicious and I had no reactions, so I highly recommend!

    I'm GF and vegetarian. they do have an extensive gf menu, but they don't have a huge selection for vegetarians. It is typical Czech cuisine. I got a delicious potato soup. I shared a potato pancake, which was not great and disappointing, and an order of fried cheese, which was a bit mediocre. Maybe we picked the wrong mains, there were other vegetarian dishes to choose from. I got fruit dumplings that were incredible! I think this is great for authentic Czech with loads of GF options.

    The best, most delicious authentic Czech food you can find in Prague! There's an entirely separate menu for Gluten Free and I am not talking about one page - it is as big as the regular menu! Everything can be made gluten free - appetizers, beer, bread, entrees, desserts. I backpacked around Europe for a month and hands down this is the best meal I had here!

    Food was very good, but expensive. Service is not included in the menu prices, and that is cheating in my view, because in this country it is usually included.

    This place was fantastic! My food came with little flags that said "gluten free," so I knew they actually cared and worked to keep it clean. I especially love that they serve gluten free beer, as I have been searching everywhere for it. I ordered the vegetarian risotto and rosemary potatoes from the gluten free menu, and they were both delicious, especially the potatoes. One thing to note is that while they do take card, any tips must be in cash/coin form. I didn't know this and wasn't able to tip. :(

    Without prompting they asked how many gluten free menus we needed. Great service, great food. They had gluten free apple strudel! Gluten free food had a flag in it to distinguish it from the regular plates.

    After having trouble finding GF good and beer in Berlin this place is a godsend for GF food and beer. My wife had her first real goulash and dumplings meal since she had to go on a GF diet due to her Crohn's Disease. Prices were reasonable and waiters were polite and helpful unlike the U-Flek next door which was very pushy and knew nothing about GF. We will be eating there again !

    delicious! Bernard is the best GF beer I've had and I also ordered pork schnitzel GF which was so good but too much for 1 person. I only give 4 stars because we had to wait almost 90 minutes for the entrees to come. if it is busy, it's not a good time to go.

    DELICIOUS food, amazing GF options, and super nice staff! Large portions and a hilarious flag in your food to assure you that it is gluten free. We went three times during a short stay in Prague (partly because finding affordable GF options was tricky) and it was so worth it

    Great local place with real Czech food. Goulash was amazing at the gluten free food comes with a little flag in it so you don't have to worry about mix ups! They have two types of gluten free beer as well. Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff!

    Off the beaten path, but a great option for those that want to try some traditional Czech dishes without the worry of cross contamination. The Celia Beer was great. Don't miss the Goulash either. We came for lunch so only sampled a few light dishes, but would come back. They use a flag to identify GF meals so you never have to guess if you got the right plate. Kudos to this place!

    Great local cuisine food and reasonable prices. Waitstaff were good, but might want to make a reservation if you can. Separate GF menu with lots of choices and food comes out marked with allergen flag.

    So delicious. Actual Czech food safely prepared. The staff is knowledgeable and your food comes out with a gluten free identifier flag. Celia (beer) was fabulous. We ate here several times... the pork schnitzel, roast duck, and lamb roll were all delightful!

    Wonderful experience. Chicken schnitzel is absolutely delicious and the potato salad that comes on the side. Celia the gluten free beer was the best. Bernard was more hoppy not my thing but others might like it. Waiters clean the gluten free glasses before hand for and previous contamination. All gluten free dishes are label. So many food options to choose from. Fruit dumplings was my favorite desert. Been there twice in two days. Highly recommend this place. Only bad thing was the gluten free bread can be skipped.

    You'll be so happy you came here! All of the delicious looking dumplings and saucy gravy's that you've had to drool over, you can have here! The gf menu is the same as the regular menu except safe! I had the beef goulash with dumplings and apple streusel. Both were incredibly satisfying!!
