U Pečeného kolena isn’t somewhere you’d find unless you lived locally or were invited by a local. I had to follow a friend’s instructions to arrive there:

To get there, take a tram 11 or 14 going out of town to Pod Jezerkou.
When you get off, walk forward 173 metres and take the oblique (not the hard) right when you pass the horrible grey building …. Walk forward 84.38 metres, beside the Botič stream. The restaurant is before the first block of flats, behind the hedge.

I found the place quite easily.


We sat outside the entire time. The Budvar 12 0.5 (39Kč) was good.

The food menu on the restaurant website is one of those old-fashioned page-turning apps – I wish they’d just write down the basic menu.

The food was all fine, nothing special but nothing bad. Here are some pictures:

Smoked salmon salad 130Kč.

Pork knee

If you find yourself in the area and want to drink and/or eat outside, then you’ll be fine here.
