Good and not expensive food but one accident crossed a lot. Waiter throw glass of wine but there are no excuse discount or any actions to mitigate that.

We are Czechs so we aimed to visit this restaurant to compare :-) The waitress was great, prices ok-ish and the food fantastic - something even better than the original Czech food. Especially the svickova was great. We will come back during our next visit.

I went to this restaurant with a group of 12. Everyone was fine with their food, but nobody raved about it. They were out of the dish I wanted early on a Friday night. The beer was yummy

Love the soulful athmosphere and the interior! You come through the ordinary yellow door - and find yourself in a small Czech town:) The staff is very helpful and cheerful. Long wooden tables - very comfortable for a big company. Very good beer and interesting menu with czech cuisines. There is an art gallery on the second floor, a lot... More

It was nice to have good service for a change as well as good food. They also have a great selection of Czech beer. There are also some good vegetarian options available. Don't miss the goulash.

It`s one restaurant chain - U Hromogo Pola and Staromacek! But Staromac have four saloons two (smoke and non-smoke) on ground floor, smoke saloon - on first floor and VIP saloon! A young chef can offer his own version of chech cuisine! I`m going there every week for a meal with fresh tap beer!

and it breaks my heart to say this because I'm Czech. Service is absolutely disastrous, just like most establishments in Kiev, if not worse. Four people serving about the same number of guests, yet nobody takes your plates away, asks whether you want another beer or gets the food in on time. Main took 50 minutes to arrive. They counted...

This Czech restaurant--pronounced "Staromak"--is a great option for pretty authentic Czech food. They have all the Czech favorites--schnitzel, svichkova, pork knuckle, and of course, good Czech beer (Krusovice). They play Czech radio and have lots of "Czech" decorations throughout (including photos of Karel Gott). You can actually order a "meter of beer" to serve to yourself and your friends at... More
