If you had come to Prague only 10 years ago as vegetarian, you would have had a tough time finding something delicious to eat. Back then, most restaurants would provide exactly two vegetarian options: fried cheese and fried cauliflower. Thankfully, things have changed.
The local vegetarian scene had vastly improved since then. In the last couple years, we have witnessed an ever-growing number of vegetarian restaurants. We came up with a list of our favorite vegetarian restaurants for you. We hope that it will help you find a nice place to enjoy vegetarian food and make your stay in Prague even more amazing.
Lehká hlava (Prague 1, Old Town)
Where else could we start but Lehká hlava, which is probably the most famous vegetarian restaurant in Prague. We love its chill atmosphere, and its unique interior design is definitely worth a visit. Although prices are a bit higher than you might find at other places, the food is bursting with flavor and worth the price. Reservations are definitely recommended.
Loving Hut (all around Prague)
Loving Hut is like McDonald's for vegetarians. This chain of vegetarian restaurants can be found all over the city. My favorite one is located on Jungmannova street. We especially like their lunch buffet that offers Asian specialities almost indistinguishable from their original meat counterparts.
Radost FX (Prague 2)
Another very popular restaurant among Prague veggies is Radost FX. Even though it is slightly more expensive, the food on the menu is a pleasure for the taste buds, and the portions are huge. There is also a famous night club right above the restaurant. Every night has a different music theme, there is always something for everyone.
Dhaba Beas (all around Prague)
Our favourite North Indian eatery with self-service lunches is tucked away behind the shopping complex My and the Národní Třída metro station. You can find Dhaba Beas branches all around Prague. You pay by weight, 100g is around $1. This place is very popular especially at lunchtime. Come early or late to avoid the lines. Usually one hour before closing everything is 30% off.
Etnosvět (Prague 2)
We think that newly opened restaurant Etnosvět is one of the fancier vegetarian restaurants in the city, and the prices seem moderate for what you get there. We got a chance to experience the lunch buffet. As there are not many restaurants in Prague, offering buffet, it was a nice change. The place is very foreigner friendly and we were surprised to hear all the different languages spoken there. The staff is super nice, welcoming you right at the door and explaining how everything works. Be prepared that this is not a cheap place, but the food is worth it. The best was the calming atmosphere - the mixture of natural greenish interior with relaxing music really transports you somewhere far away from a busy Legerova street.
As in many European countries also in the Czech Republic we consider the end of April and the beginning of the May to be quite magical....
Easter in Czech Republic is likely to be different from anything that you have experienced at home. We have put together some Easter...
