We were all tired and worn out, and took a seat at a large wooden-benched table, ordered our first Czech beers (dark, and Pilsner), and hit the menu. It's a largish menu of mainly traditional Czech dishes. We had no idea what to expect, as it was relatively early in the evening, and few people were eating as yet. (It filled up as the evening progressed, though).
We decided to go for main courses and dessert - which it's as well we did - as the portion sizes turned out to be ENORMOUS! Hubby had a Czech platter (various types of meat, dumplings, etc.), eldest had Pork Schnitzel, youngest had baked chicken with ham and cheese, and I had a chicken ragout type of thing with steamed vegetables. All of which was washed down with more beer (dark and Gambrinus) with fruit juice and water for the kids. The portion sizes were twice what we'd normally have, but all seemed to get polished off anyway!
After all that we decided to share one dessert between the four of us - a crepe stuffed with chocolate ice cream, with whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Huge too it was - but four ways made it reasonable, and the kids (and me *grin*) always have room for pudding!
Service was fairly efficient and came with a smile, even as the restaurant filled up. All in all - a success. The bill, including a small cover charge, came to 1020CZK - about £24 - which seemed pretty darned good for what we'd had.
