We are in Prague for the week and had Secret Of Raw down as one of our "Must Try" restaurants. We were not disappointed.
Secret Of Raw is an all-raw, mostly vegan restaurant in Praha 3. I say "mostly vegan" as apparently a few dishes contain honey, though there were none on the menu when we visited. It's easy to find in a nice location, we walked there in around 15 minutes from our hotel in Praha 1.
The restaurant itself is lovely. The decor and music are all very soothing, and the staff were great. The menu was available in English and the waitress who served us was also a fluent English speaker. We turned up without booking a table but were seated immediately, even though they looked to be fairly busy.
The food blew us away. My Husband had sun-dried tomato rolls for his starter, I had the bruschetta. Both dishes were beautifully presented, the flavours were very fresh and clean but incredibly more-ish! The same could be said for our shared main course - the tasting platter for two. This included samples of the sun burgers and fries, pizza, ravioli, fajita and spaghetti. Everything was absolutely delicious, and this was a nice way to try many of the main courses at once. We were too full for dessert (the portion sizes were very generous) but we will definitely be back again this week to try them.
We were really happy with the prices. We ended up paying less than a quarter of what we've previously paid at a well-known raw restaurant in London. It was a little pricey by Prague standards but we expect that when we choose to eat at a specialist restaurant like that.
The only real gripe I have was that the food took a little longer to show up than I'd have expected. However, they were fairly busy so it is forgivable.
We will be back this week for sure, I'd like to try their lunch menu and their desserts looked far too good to miss!
Great vegan food, Lovely staff and atmosphere, Reasonable prices
Service can be slow at busy times
