Best vegetarian restaurant ever!
Posted on 11 / 29 / 2011
My husband is a vegetarian and I had already had a big klobasa at the Old Town square, so even though it was almost 9pm we decided to give it a try, on the advice of our tour guide. On this first time, on a Friday night, maybe because the staff wanted to leave for home, the food was uninspired and the service was nothing less than awful: Slow, forgetful of our order, took forever to bring me a cup of tea, then after we ordered our bill and payed in cash the waitress left us for a long time waiting for our change, which quite frankly made me think that she wanted us to forget so she could keep the change. I mean, it was that bad! The food was nothing special and for the rest of our week in Prague we didn't eat there again. But on our last night there we were in the area and my hubby wanted to give it another chance, and since it was about 6pm we decided we'd give it another try. We didn't have a reservation and the place was quite full, but we found a table downstairs. This time, it was a dreamy experience! The guy who received us was very attentive, our waitress was delightful, serviceable, prompt, well informed of the menu options. And the food? Simple DELICIOUS! My hubby had an entree which looked delicious and according to him, it was exquisite. The Hemp beer was nice, my aloe vera drink was yummy and refreshing; and both our desserts were scrumptious! I had the carrot cake and I could not believe how good it tasted, the layers of flavors, the crunch of the carrots, the spices, oooh it was the best carrot cake ever. And my hubby had a lime pie that was just as amazing!
I wish we had Maitrea here in Fort Lauderdale, if it were, we would eat there at least a couple of times a week!!
If we ever go back to beautiful, gorgeous, vibrant Prague, we will definitely be back at Maitrea too.
- I will rate this restaurant according to our experience the second time we ate there, because I am sure that the unattentive service and the tasteless food of our first time there were just a glitch :)
Excellent menu, Great service, Peaceful setting
