Visited Hiller now several times for lunch over the week and dinner on Saturday evenings.
Highly recommended to reserve a table for Saturday evenings when there is vegan buffet.
Every visit was special: food is really good stuff, staff is very freindly and open for special wishes. Interior is easy but absolutely okay. prices are absolutely okay for the very good quality you receice. Will definitively come back more often.
The food at Hiller is excellent. I brought a non-veg friend here and she loved everything we ordered. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Hannover. Make sure to try the buckwheat pancake with salad, it is excellent!
The oldest veggie restaurant in Germany is now vegan and offers plant-based versions of classic German dishes.
It's worth a visit and the lunch offer is good value
Hannover is not rich in superlatives, so being the city with the oldest German Vegetarian Restaurant should certainly mean something! They are now consequently vegan and they are a restaurant that should not be missed in Hannover.
I've been to the Hiller a few times, and I must say that they have come a very long way from a nice, but a bit boring vegetarian restaurant to a place where you can indulge in delicious vegan food.
I went for their dinner menu, consisting of a very fruity and well made tomato soup, a delicious main dish of potatoes, mushrooms and "pepper steak" and an apple pancake with soy ice cream. All of these dishes were wonderful, and worth the price (EUR 18 for this menu)
Offering German "Hausmannskost" (homestyle food) in vegan versions - that is something you do not find often. They also have some slightly more exotic dishes like curry or chili. But, to be honest, if you want to have a nice Indian or Chinese vegan meal, well, there are Indian and Chinese restaurants that are either vegan or offer vegan options and might be the better place to go.
Out of the biting wind and into the warmth of Hiller i stepped to be met by a friendly welcome. The menu was all chalked up on the board as a selection of three different menus starting at 7 euros and the top price menu was only 12 euros. I plumped for the middle one 8.50 for three courses, raw veg salad to start followed by spicy mash, Brussels and tofu burger followed by plum pudding. All washed down with a carrot and orange, freshly squeezed juice, lovely. The value for money is very good bit you may need to brush up on your German before you go to work out what is on the menu. Otherwise, recommended :-))
Everything here is vegan! It's literally one of my favourite places in Germany. I can really recommend the Saturday buffet, it's heavenly! Btw: it's only a few minutes walk from Hannover's central station, which makes it the perfect place to come to, even when you're just passing through.
We went to Hiller for the three course lunch menu on a Saturday afternoon. The service was friendly and reasonably quick, I enjoyed the classic feel about the place (being a vegan I hardly ever come to traditional German restaurants). We all had different vegetable and potato dishes with seitan or soya bits. It was all very, very tasty, just a little too oily to my taste (but that's the traditional way). As for starters two of us had a tomato soup (not so speacial) and one had salad (tasty). The dessert was a delicious coconut trifle. Including three main courses, drinks and one children's dish we paid around 40€ which is a really good deal.
I am also happy to see the owners seem to be very engaged in the vegan and animal rights movement - they have a fine selection of vegan-themed books, lots of flyers and leaflets and invite people connected with the vegan scene and book authors for readings and workshops on a regular basis. Thumbs up!
Had a 3-course lunch here. Price depends on the main course you choose. I had a very flavorful and tomato-ey tomato soup for starter, a main course of cooked millet topped with creamed chanterelle mushrooms and some kind of a starchy patty with a piece of crispy seitan schnitzel on the side, as well as hazelnut cream with mixed berries for dessert. All for €12 only and it was already the priciest option on that day. Everything was yummy and, above all, vegan. Staff was very friendly. Wish I had come on a Saturday so I could get to try the evening buffet!
Hillier serves up some of the best vegan German food I've ever tasted! I enjoyed an evening menu of avocado salad for starter, crispy seitan, potatoes and creamy mushrooms for main, and a desert plate comprised of three different deserts- all for 17 euros.
Absolutely fabulous restaurant. We were in Hannover for four days and visited this restaurant twice. First day we tried 3 different mains - all excellent! Second day we went broader and gorged ourselves on the amazing options...all recommended by a very attentive waitress who also reminded us what we ordered the last time (two days ago) and was happy to translate everything on the menu. She also remembered what everyone around us ate as we used that for reference on the first day! (very impressive). Anyway foods to definitely get... noodle soup, avocado salad, spinach "quiche", the dijon dish was loved by my wife but maybe too strong but number 42 (can#t remember the name) was excellent. The dessert of pancake was best I have ever eaten and wife tried vegan ice cream and loved that! If you only go to one restaurant here then it must be this one. Very close walk from station (about 3-4 mins). Go! We are even thinking of going back for an early dinner before we catch the plane!
Food very tasty and delicious. Wide selection and big variety of vegetarian dishes (vegan options available). They offer set meals with savings compared to single dishes.
Staff very friendly. If the restaurant is very full, you need to be prepared for longer waiting times as everything is prepared fresh and at peak times there are not enough waiters.
It's the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Germany, dating back to the 1950's. It still has some 50's atmosphere. :). Some compare it to canteen style but we think this is an unfair judgement and we didn't have this impression. There are flowers and candles on the tables and nice decoration on the walls with historic photographs.
We had two entrees, two main dishes, two soft drinks and two glasses of Cabernet Sauvignon and paid 40€ which is very reasonable for what you get.

This is the only true vegetarian restaurant in Hannover.
At Lunch it serves three menues with the same entree (salad) and desert at a very reasonable price. We usually go there Saturdays and their is hardly any repetition as they respect the seasons. Very tasty and freshly prepared.
Quite a sophisticated and elegant place but non pretentious and very friendly. Superb menu, lots of vegan choice. Lunch time dining here is an absolute treat where a there's usually a special set menu deal. Been here twice, once for a lovely evening meal where the lighting was perfect and once in the early afternoon where it was packed out with people 'doing lunch'.
