What: Excellent vegetarian restaurant in the centre of Prague (there is a sister restaurant in Prague which will be reviewed here soon).

Prices: Cold starters around €3, warm starters around €4, big salads around €5.50, mains around €6, desserts around €2.50.

Vegetarian menu: All the food is vegetarian and the extensive menu is in both Czech and English. Examples of mains: spicy goulash with seitan served with dumplings, Thai eggplant with tofu, fresh coriander, chilli peppers, coconut milk and rice, quesadilla with tomatoes, fresh spinach, olives, feta cheese, rice, guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream. Examples of starters: warm onion cakes with roasted red pepper cream sauce, red beet tartare with goat cheese terrine and spelt flat bread…and much, much more.

Drinks: Lots of teas, fresh juices, mulled juices, wines and more.

Service: Friendly. They were very slow at the beginning, which is good if you don’t like the feeling of being rushed out of a restaurant.

Comfortable? Yes. The tables are a little too close together, but the atmosphere is very relaxed. They say that the restaurant is designed according to Feng Shui. The wood used for the tables and finishings is lovely to the touch and the restaurant is, in general, a pleasant and calm place to sit.

Was the food good? Yes. Everything was very tasty and the portions very generous. The bread was served warm — a pleasing touch. The mulled juices were especially good. It was exciting to have so many things from which to choose (for once).

Toilets: Downstairs. Very nice and clean. The sinks are especially nice.

My advice to the chef: Keep up the good work.

My advice to the manager: As above.

Overall: It would be great is there was a similar restaurant in Dublin. It is definitely worth seeking out if in Prague.

Management were asked to respond to this review.

  1. Response from the restaurant:

    Dear Dublin Reviewer Team,

    Thank you for choosing us for your review.

    Your words and opinions on our service pleased us and they encourage us to go on with our vision.

    Our idea is to offer people an alternative to eating meat by experiencing something pleasant, inspiring and tasty, instead of speaking about moral or health.

    We do so already for 6 years in our older sister restaurant Clear Head http://www.lehkahlava.cz and we found many fans and supporters from that time that helped us to open this second and larger sister restaurant Maitrea http://www.restaurace-maitrea.cz just in the heart of Prague.

    We will be glad to meet and serve you in either of our restaurants in our beautiful city.

    Cheers
    Martin
    Maitrea and Clear Head Restaurants

  2. Thanks Julia — what exactly do you think vegetarians would enjoy in those restaurants?
