First Review by Poundie

overrated, not good vegan options - Edit

We thought it woukd be good based on the reviews here but no... the nachos were plain corn chips with a really small amount of guacamole. All the vegan main dishes featured tofu and were not creative or tasty. Meals were presented in IKEA bowls etc. it all felt very cheap. They don't really know what they are doing with vegan food in my opinion. We were not impressed.

Cons: not good quality food

flavorful food with few vegan options - Edit

We went there for lunch without a reservation and got a table in the small orange room to the left. Staff was okay but not exactly friendly. The green Thai curry (vegan) tasted great, probably the best curry I had in a restaurant so far. The raspberry cake was a bit on the drier side but still tasty. The peanut cheesecake was also very nice I was told.

Pros: flavorful , quite central

Cons: staff wasn’t really friendly, rather indifferent, vegans don’t have much choice

special place for special nights - Edit

we came without a reservation around 4 p.m. and were given table without a problem. the selection at this time is limited (especially for vegans), but what we had was delicious. especially the starter - tofoie gras - perfect. the staff was nice and the place looks really cozy - looks just right for that special date night ;-) it's quite expensive, but it is just 2 minute walk from the charles bridge, so it's kind of expected :-)

Pros: nice interior, tasty food, central location

Cons: limited vegan options

For nice dinner - Edit

I was there twice for date night, you need reservation for sure :) Once i got some spinach wraps, and starters, that was okey, but nothing special. Other time I got the noodles with teriyaky and pumpkin and that was delicious! It is more expensive place for special dinners. I will prefer bit bigger vegan choice

Delicious food, not a lot of space - Edit

Food here is delicious. I appreciated that the menu was not identical to Maitrea's. If you don't have a reservation you may end up at a shared table.

Pros: Great food

Cons: Difficult to get your own table

Good but not amazing. - Edit

I went to this restaurant a couple of times and i can tell you straight away - their curry with rice is the best! Amazing people and environment, you just sit and you feel good. I always feel amazing when i see a lot of people in vegetarian/vegan restaurant and this one is definitely one of the best ones in Prague. When it comes to the food - sizes are kinda small for their higher price but i have to say - everything i tried was great. Even my non-vegan family said so. On the other side - side dishes and desserts have a perfect size. Cakes are very sweet, even i with my sweet tooth could not finish them.

Pros: taste, people , ENVIRONMENT

Cons: meal portion, price

Quite pricy compare to the meal sizes - Edit

We had curry there and some tortillas with beans. Meals were good but the size was a bit dissapointing considering the price. The impression was not that good so we do not plan to visit again.

Pros: Nice environment

Cons: Expensive, Small meals

Beautiful Atmosphere, Tasty Food - Edit

Clear Head is one of the most beautiful restaurants I've been in. My friend and I were lucky enough to sit in the room with the starry sky - a blue ceiling with tiny twinkling lights. Our table was filled with beautiful dried flowers, and it was clear that the design and atmosphere of the restaurant had been carefully designed.

We made our reservations for dinner (definitely would recommend, another group of three came in around the same time, and were turned away for an hour). The service was fairly prompt, and our waitress was very friendly. I ordered the Cantonese Tofu, and my friend ordered the curry. I was a little bit disappointed with my portion size. It was so delicious, but I was still a bit hungry after eating it because it came with white rice. We also ordered the raspberry crumble for dessert, which was really good.

Pros: Delicious food, Beautiful atmosphere

Cons: Reservations required for dinner

"It is meatless because we believe the world would be a better place if we stop increasing the consumption of meat." - Edit

Die Grußworte im Clear Head lesen sich erstmal vielversprechend. Wir waren zu zweit Ende August beim Mittagstisch vor Ort und haben das lunch menu vom Mittwoch bestellt (siehe Wochenübersicht auf den Fotos). Die vegane Variante des Risotto of arborio rice with roasted tomatoes, basil and calamata olives wurde anstatt mit Parmesan mit Hefeflocken bestreut. Es war lecker und obwohl wir uns bewusst waren eine kleinere Portion bestellt zu haben, war der Teller doch dürftiger als erwartet belegt. Da es ein heißer Sommertag war, sind wir zwar gestärkt jedoch nicht übersättigt auf weitere Stadterkundung gegangen - und hatten positiv betrachtet genug Platz für einen Nachtisch in einer nicht weit entfernten Eisdiele. Der Mittagstisch ist daher eher für den kleinen Hunger zu empfehlen. Veganer haben zudem eine kleinere Auswahl zu erwarten, da es ein "better place" in erster Linie für Vegetarier mit einem für sie umso vielfältigerem Angebot ist. Die hausgemachten Getränke sind zu empfehlen.

Pros: englischsprachige Karte und Bedienung, Mittagstisch und Abendkarte

Cons: kleine(re) Auswahl für Veganer

Nice flavors, poor service - Edit

We had the vegan pesto, Cantonese tofu and wrap: beautiful flavors but the portions are too small for me.
We waited for 30 minutes for our main dish too.
Overall, a disappointing experience.

Lovely little restaurant - Edit

Beautiful restaurant with great choices of Mexican, Asian or local dishes. The restaurant is mostly booked out but we were lucky twice to get a table which was reserved for a later hour. The staff is not as organized as at the Maitrea restaurant, but they are trying to cope. The food was very tasty. Great choice! Great location not far from Charles bridge.

Pros: mix of Mexican, Asian or local dishes

Cons: very busy, so reservations are needed

One of the best we had in Prague - Edit

Had the wraps and the gyros, both were perfect, one of the best places we have been so far in Prague.

It is very full and definitely needs a reservation!

Cons: needs reservation

ok food, glutenfree&vegan options - Edit

The food was okay. Had to make a reservation to get a table.
Didnt feel like the staff understood so much english but we definetly managed to order food.

They made a mistake about the glutenfree food buy fixed it right away and gave us discount on the food. I feel like they focused on giving the customers the best service. Sad that the food was a bit tasteless. Would definetly give them another shot. :)

Good find! - Edit

I found this place after meeting up with another veggie friend who suggested we go here. I was surprised at the speed of the service, which was convenient due to not having much time.
The food was pretty cheap and I particularly enjoyed the tofoie gras. The main, which was raw cucumber noodles with pesto could have done with a little more seasoning but otherwise was good. Salt and pepper on the table never goes amiss!

Pros: Filling, Fast, Friendly

Cons: Dark

total disappointment and overrated place - Edit

I am always amazed when in vegetarian restaurant as a vegetarian I am left without food choice. From all the menu I only had one choice (unexciting salad with cheese), just because it is not possible to have a meal without onion and garlic.

Food is already prepared in advance so it is not possible that it can be adjusted to customers needs. I find that strange because people have different diets, allergies etc. In a regular restaurant that is rarely a problem and from vegetarian restaurant I would expect more understanding and flexibility.

Meals are quite small and not very filling, quite blend and nothing really special but greatly overpriced (this is opinion of 4 of us who were there for lunch and each of us had a different dish). They even charged 55 koruna (2 €) for the jug of tap water (!).

The interior of the restaurant is a bit strange, plastic tables imitating wood that are illuminated from inside (!) the room is quite dark and all in all not such a great atmosphere. I don't understand why is this restaurant so highly rated. Or it is simply living on the old glory. All in all, total disappointment.

Perhaps better for vegetarians - Edit

I’d been looking forward to trying this place after so many good reviews here, but was rather disappointed. There is a limited selection of vegan dishes on the menu. A number of others offer ‘vegan option’, but this seems to simply mean removing the non-vegan thing (on my co-diner’s gyros plate, they removed the tzatziki – and replaced it with a weird sauce that tasted like tomato paste). Even the burger they offered couldn’t be veganised; when I asked why, I was told it’s because the bread has egg in it?! (These observations may seem minor, but it would be very easy to veganise the bread and the tzatziki, thereby expanding options for all diners.)

I chose a Cantonese tofu dish, which I found to be very ordinary. I noticed only one vegan dessert on the menu – something chia-based. I had hoped the restaurant would attempt to veganise some Czech foods, but that didn’t seem to be the case. The homemade lemonade with mint was delicious, though.

Pros: Nice space, Nice wait staff, Homemade lemonade with mint

Cons: Fairly unimaginative fare, Expensive

Will definitely be back for more - Edit

I love this place! And so does my boyfriend, who isn't vegan or vegetarian :) I had an amazing spicy and sweet tofu stir fry with white rice and I had chips and guacamole as my appetizer. The tofu was perfectly fried- slightly crunchy texture on the outside, nice and light on the inside. The guac was good, too! It passed my standards of growing up with real authentic mexican food., I'll be back for sure!

A classic for a good reason - Edit

Lehka Hlava is probably the best-known veggie restaurant in Prague, and for a good reason. Even though it's probably not the most mind-blowing thing you've ever experienced, the menu is versatile, the portions are decent and all the dishes I've tried have been very tasty. I can recommend their selection of dips/spreads with bread ("Small Clear Head") to share as appetizers. There are many vegan options and the staff seems to be very aware of allergies and other special dietary needs. Lehka Hlava also has a daily lunch menu which is very affordable (135 CZK). The interior is distinctive and cosy and the location is central but peaceful.

Pros: good value, esp. for lunch, tasty food
