good, hearty, home style food - Edit

This food reminded me of the kind of stuff my mom makes, but vegan. Nothing super fresh or healthy, but warm, filling and yummy. The tempeh wrapped in pastry dough was our fave. Lots of potatoes and such, too. Plus if you visit during happy hour (15:00-17:00) it's only 135 crowns for just about all you can load on a plate (up to 1000 grams). It was enough for two people!

Pros: reasonably priced, lots of options, tasty

Cons: one of the more expensive pay by weight

Vegan bistro in the middle of Prague - Edit

The food here is priced pretty cheap, especially if you arrive during the happy hour. They have a wide selection of dishes and sides to choose from, a couple of sauces too. The food was ok though a bit bland.
The place was quite full but you serve yourself then pay at the cash register by weight. The staff spoke English though they didn't seem so friendly.
I would say this is a location you can go to if you're hungry but it's not anything too special.

Pros: lots of options, cheap

Cons: cold staff, food was a bit bland

Probably the best lunch buffet in Prague - Edit

Country life has become one of my favourite places for lunch! The food is cheap, fresh and delicious - just excellent value, which I find surprising as the restaurant is located in a notoriously touristy part of the old town. The buffet is pay by weight, but you'll get a full plate for about 150 CZK. Works for health-conscious vegans (beautiful, versatile salad buffet) as well as for people who appreciate rich, yummy, satisfying food that keeps you feeling full for a long time. The staff is pretty friendly and there's always been place to sit.
Country life would get 5 stars from me if I hadn't tried their cakes. I've tried three different ones and been disappointed with all of them.

Pros: cheap, delicious, all vegan

Cons: rather tasteless cakes

une bonne cantine vegan - Edit

L atmosphère ressemble plutôt à une cantine mais la nourriture est bonne. Un choix relativement varié mais comme il y avait un peu de monde il a fallu choisir vite. Nous avons pris un buritto et une pizza avec des entrées. Tout était bon

Pros: Pas très cher , nourriture bonne, personnel sympathique

Cons: ambiance un peu cantine

3 days in Prague eating vegan food, this is the best - Edit

My partner and I spent 3 days in Prague enjoying the beautiful city, eating drinking and loving it. Of all the vegan places we tried, this one is the best in our opinion. Great buffet with lots of different styles. Beautiful decor and friendly staff. Please support this place!

Great Food - Edit

This is certainly one of my favorite vegan restaurant, though it costs a little bit more and is located in city center, which means there is always a lot of people there.
The food is so worth trying, because finally it is not fried burgers, fatty sauces or mushroom dips for bland rice-pasta. You can get there amazing rice noodles with vegetables, bulgur, quinoa, all sorts of rices, beans, cooked veggies, salads, side foods, patties. All lovely and tasty.

Pros: Food, Big Plates, self service, Location

Cons: Prices, Sometimes too crowded, Not really nice-smiling staff

Subpar - Edit

Buffet food is usually not as good as a la carte, I get it, but this was utterly disappointing. The food was just blah :/

good food in great location - Edit

Have eaten there a bunch of times in the last year and can recommend it for lunch and take out, especially when eating with a group as the place has something for everyone!

To my knowledge the food is not entirely vegan though, unless there has been a recent change to not using dairy.

Pros: fast and central, lots of choices

jennyc32 04 Sep 2016 - I was really confused about this when I visited, and there were no staff to help! In the window of the restaurant, I'm sure it says "dairy free", so I just hoped for the best.
