4 Vegetarian Restaurants in Prague (Czech Republic)

Gopal

We were still quite full from our meal at the restaurant at the bottom of this post, so we didn’t eat a lot here. And it actually seemed there weren’t a lot of main meal options. But what we did see looked quite good.

Food: The only food we got was a cheesecake. It was completely delicious, in my opinion, but I almost never eat cheesecake because I am strict about not eating eggs and it’s hard to know if a cheesecake has eggs in it or not in most situations where I would have the opportunity. This restaurant was completely egg-free, so it wasn’t a concern. A main ingredient of the cheesecake was poppy seeds, which seem to be a signature food of the Czech (along with fennel). We also had lassis (which we weren’t thrilled with, but determined we don’t really like lassis, in general) and a large, energizing wheatgrass juice.

Atmosphere/setting: It was a pretty small restaurant with a nice homey feel. Very warm atmosphere and nice outdoor seating in a little courtyard was available as well but not when we were there because it had been raining.

Service:Β The servers were extremely friendly, again, and the service was quite prompt.

This restaurant was out of the main tourist area a bit in a nice little neighborhood that we probably wouldn’t have visited if we weren’t headed here. It was really a nice neighborhood to see and would recommend it even if you don’t want to eat at this restaurant.

Food: The food here was good, but not our favorite. It was Vietnamese, I think, which we like from time to time but doesn’t thrill us. But it was good. Important note, however: IT WAS HOT/SPICY (and we were not warned). Also, I think this restaurant was pure vegan.

Atmosphere/setting: This restaurant had two levels, both were very nicely decorated, cozy, and interesting. There was nice, tranquil music playing. And, again, like the neighborhood around the restaurant.

Service: The owner, who took our order and served us, was extremely friendly and sociable. It was nice to meet him.

I think you can tell that we had a good time and LOVED the food in Prague :D

Any questions? Have you visited Prague and have anything to add?

    Thanks for this post! We are off to Prague in a couple of weeks, I’ve been there a couple of times before but only been to Loving Hut (there are 3 branches in the city) and I really recommend them!

    I look forward to trying the ones you visited! x

      Cool :D We really wanted to go to a Loving Hut, but were out of our range or closed.

      Do you live in the States or Europe (or elsewhere)? Unusual for an American to visit Prague 3 times.. :D

        I’m in England, near London :) so Prague is a short flight away, very easy to get to. It’s really popular for UK travellers.

        Loving Hut is seriously amazing! I have been to 3 now and can’t rate the food highly enough.

          Cool. yeah, it’s popular here as well (just 5 hours away by bus/coach). nice city :D

          now i’m quite disappointed we didn’t get to check out Loving Hut :D will have to get back there again and do so :D

    Great article. Bookmarked for our next trip to Prague.

    We hit up Country Life after a long day of travel a few years ago. The “buffet” style was awesome as we didn’t quite have a grasp of the language yet. The food was fresh and flavorful and they had a lot to pick from. It was casual and the people watching was great as we struggled to keep our eyes open to an hour that was decent for us to go to bed…we walked away with full stomachs.

      Thanks for chimin’ in!

      We bought a bunch of stuff from the Country Life shop on Melantrichova (or something like that) in the center. Good stuff :D

      We checked out the restaurant, but our stomachs were stuffed at that point, so didn’t touch anything :D

    A useful article, but your restricted time in the city did not allow you to try four other vegetarian restaurants. Country Life, with an excellent health food store attached [closed Saturdays] near the Old Town Square, Maitrea-the sister restaurant to Clearhead-behind the Tyn church –and our huge favourite, Maly Buddha-at the top of Uvoz, near the Castle complex.Behind Bila Labut, you will find tasty Govinda too.
    Lots of other good restaurants serve tasty veggie food, such as Artisan in the Ujezd area-near the base of the Funicular and the pad Thai at Modry Zub–two city branches , and very reasonably priced. Enjoy!

    I went to Prague a couple years ago and was also pleasantly surprised with how many vegetarian restaurants they have. I loved Lehka Hlava. Two other vegetarian restaurants I enjoyed were Radost FX (which is also a lounge & night club) and Country Life Cafe.
