Hidden on a quiet street bordering Čechovo Náměstí, Pod Lipami serves fresh lagers from Pivovarský Dvůr Zvíkov and a delicious menu of Czech inspired cuisine.
Zvíkov beer is hard to come by in Prague; the brewmaster is very choosy about which pubs sell his well crafted lagers. A pleasant surprise in Vršovice, Pod Lipami not only serves light and dark lager from Zvíkov, but also has on tap Pilsner Urquell and Staropramen. Zvíkov’s lagers are served like they should be; in clean glasses, perfectly chilled, and ultimately refreshing.
Serving classic Czech dishes like wild game goulash with dumplings and svíčková (beef in a cream sauce), they also make a good burger and fries. The chicken wings are generously cooked with a sweet, sticky tangy marinade and fresh ginger. Thin and tender, their veal schnitzel is breaded and crisp. A more modern take on the Slovak national dish ‘halušky’, their homemade potato gnocchi are delectably soft, topped with smoked ham, caraway seeds, and sauerkraut. Occasionally, they’ll have weekly specials, celebrating special Czech holidays, seasonal dishes, or fresh fish. Everyday they have an affordable lunch menu.
Service is fast and friendly. One of the newer restaurants in the neighborhood, it still seems easy to get a table without a reservation. However, Pod Lipami’s reputation for good food at a good price is quickly bringing more people in.
Pod Lipami’s got everything you want in a local eatery- great beer, delicious food, affordable prices, and good service. A non-smoking restaurant, Pod Lipami’s guests are from every age group. As frequent diners, we’re also impressed with their consistency, something that isn’t so easy to come by on the Prague dining scene.
Located on the corner of Slovinská and Madridská, the closest tram stop is Vršovické Náměstí and the 135 bus stops a block up the hill at the Slovinská stop.
