Great! - Edit

Really delicious vegan food. My favourites of what we ate were the mushroom paté, rosted potatoes and chocolate & mango mousse. But everything else we tasted was also great. If you have the oppourtunity, choose to sit outside. Super cozy!

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Great atmosphere, Great friendly service

Cons: Cant think of any :)

Tasty food, good service - Edit

This is the place to go if you want a nice sit down evening meal- the service was brilliant, all the staff made sure you were looked after. The menu was a bit of a jumble going from sushi to burgers to ravioli but over all the food was fresh and on the whole was well cooked and tasty! Would go back just for the mousse for dessert. Also, cheap beer :)

Pros: Clean, Good service

Cons: Not the cheapest

Hmm. - Edit

As I was researching things to do (read: vegan things to eat) in Prague, I frequently came across this place, but it never made it to my shortlist and I had never intended to visit. Why? Well, it seemed a wee bit too uppity for my tastes, as I generally prefer the often-more-fun mid-tier establishments. However, due to this being my first time in the city and it being rather late, I capitulated and went to the nearest place to my hostel instead of sticking to my plan.

So, did it meet my expectations? Yes - almost entirely. The staff were friendly, the ambiance was perfect for a late-night meal and the meal itself was...passable. Herein lies the issue I have with the higher-end establishments: they rely too much on reputation and oftentimes not enough on the food itself. After persusing what few vegan options were on the menu, I settled on the Pad Thai, which, while Pad Thai-y and all, was also fairly small and the rice noodles quickly congealed into one very sticky ball. As you might imagine, this doesn't make for such an elegant dining experience.

Further, the price for 'all this' (i.e. just the pad thai - nothing else except a bread roll) was shockingly high for the Prague standards I've become accustomed to over my first day here, and again, for not much more than I probably would've received at a Thai kiosk in a Metro station - abiance notwithstanding.

I'm glad I didn't starve last night, but I certainly feel like a sucker for having paid double the price for a meal that probably only filled me up half as much as what I enjoyed at lunch today. If you're going for a romantic date night (or at the very least choose another menu item - perhaps the others are a better value), perhaps this is the right place, but personally I sort of regret not just heading into the nearest Žabka for some porridge, a protein bar and tea for a a few dozen CZK.

TL;DR: Unless you're feeling romantic or particularly spendy (by Prague standards), I'd look elsewhere.

Pros: Well-designed and beautiful restaurant, Friendly staff, Great for a date night

Cons: Expensive, Not much for that high price, Mostly vegetarian

Delicious and great service - Edit

Went here in early Jan 2018 and the food was incredible! My husband got the vegan burger and I got the vegan pad Thai. Staff were lovely and we would definitely go back if we were in the area again!

First vegan dinner with boyfriend - Edit

It was the 1st time we desided to go to vegan dinner like a romantic couple. There was the great atmosphere and people, beautiful wooden interior,. And the food was delicious!

Poprvé jsme se rozhodli zajít si na romantickou večeři na vegan jídlo. A musím říci, že Etnosvět byl skvělou volbou!
Úžasná atmosféra, skvělá obsluha, nádherný dřevěný interiér. A to jídlo bylo vynikající! :-)

Pros: atmosphere and interior, people from stuff, delicious food

lovely surprise! - Edit

First time visiting Prague and I loved it!
Etnosvet was a wonderful way to finish the trip - the vegan tasting menu was fabulous, great presentation and tasty food. The pad Thai was a tad vinegary for me but everything else was brill.
Would highly recommend!

Cons: limited vegan options

Ace! - Edit

Went here on the final day of our trip to Prague and truly did save the best till last! Absolutely stunning interiors (so inspiring) and the menu was insane. Both me and my friend had the vegan sampling menu which including steak tartare, deep fried sushi & a mango and chocolate mousse. I cannot big this place up enough - would love to visit again! And has opened my eyes to how well veganism and fine dining can work together! Beautiful wine was served also, friendly staff & although pricier than a normal restaurant - was still way cheaper than anywhere similar in the U.K.

Pros: Unique food, Friendly staff , Fab interiors

Cons: Quite far out of the main city

Not a great experience! - Edit

We expected the food to have more flavour. I got the fried sushi and the soy sauce came in a dish way too small to fit the sushi in! Should be more thought out for such prices! The food at vegan Loving Hut, which has similar menu items tastes better and saves so much money! Also, after asking for the cheapest on the menu, the waitress treated us like we don't have any money and kept laughing at us. We did not feel welcome or comfortable. After finishing our meal she was very unpleasant when we asked to split the bill. She was rude and told us we should've told her in the beginning because now she has to calculate it! UHH IT'S YOUR JOB TO DO THAT? AND IT'S YOUR JOB TO BE NICE TO CUSTOMERS. Anyway... would not recommend and will not come back here because the service is not that great, food could be better, interior too modern and waitress very rude.

Pros: free water, warm, quiet and comfortable environment, vegan options

Cons: rude waitress, bad service, too expensive for the bad quality food

In some ways, I wish more veg restaurants were like thi - Edit

Top scores for presentation. For me one of the downsides of being veg is that often restaurants and meals are not on par with what some 'normal' restaurants would-not that they are bad--but just the elements that make a restaurant fancy to the point you can impress your colleagues or a business client with. Etnosvet fits this very well, dishes are professionally prepared and the display is excellent. That being said-perhaps they lack some 'oomph' of really owning and exploring veg cuisine (veg version of burger, sushi, wellington, tartar, pad thai ect you know the deal)... many meals seemed to be 'veg' versions of meat. Still it was tasty, and a restaurant that will help people transition away from meat. Service was good. I have been veg for so long I didn't know what a wellington was/is, so i ordered it out of curiosity, realising then it was a veg-version of a meat dish. Still it was very delicious..

Really good food in very Nice atmosphere - Edit

Staff was very friendly and concerned wether you had everything you needed. The portobella burger was really tasty. It came with chips and a very good vegan sauce. My friend took the pad thai with tempeh and loved it as well even though he isn't vegan (nor vegetarian).

The interior is much more classy than most vegan restaurants.

Pros: Friendly staff, Great food, Classy and cozy

Cons: expensive for Tsjech standards

Great service and beautiful environment - Edit

It was a great decision to treat my mum to dinner on her birthday while we were on holiday. Food was artistically prepared, service was excellent. Our host Tereza was very attentive to detail, from as soon as we entered the restaurant to presenting my mum's desert with birthday candles and singing happy birthday for her. It was a lovely experience.

Pros: Friendly staff, cosy athmosphere, gourmet food

Cons: Slightly on the expensive side

A beautiful experience - Edit

Beautiful restaurant offering a fine dining experience. Very attentive staff, elegant decor and beautifully presented food. I tried the fried sushi and the coconut cheesecake (both vegan) and they were both fantastic. Not all our party are vegetarian but we all loved this restaurant. Highly recommended.

Pros: friendly staff , extensive menu (including vegan options), atmosphere - a real treat

Amazing food!!! - Edit

The food is absolutely amazing and I would highly recommend it! It was very creative, I would give it 5 stars!

We were unlucky, we did not get a good service - nothing terrible, but we didn't feel welcome at all -it was late, staffed seemed upset, started cleaning up during our meal and seemed annoyed- and it ended up ruining a perfectly good meal for us, hence the 3 stars.

I can't recommend the food and the cocktails enough! We went on a quiet day - Monday- pretty late, I would recommend going on a busier day and booking in advance (you can book on the website)

Pros: Great vegan and vegetarian food, can book online, beautiful location

Cons: a bit pricey, service

I am so glad I ended up eating at this restaurant (it was only a back-up). There aren't a lot of vegan options, but the ones they have are delicious. The vegan cheesecake was to die for.

Paradise of taste - Edit

Truly exceptional fancy restaurant with quite a few vegan options.
The design has the luxurious feel and the food goes hand in hand with it. They offer wide range of international cuisine. Staff is helpful and will gladly explain what the meals are (some names can be somewhat intimidating for an ordinary person). Coffees can be made with soy or almond milk for extra price. The restaurant provide tasting menu and a nice wine selection.
Some items can be ordered as takeaway.
This restaurant is made for special occasions, but is a bit pricey. Still more than worth the visit!

Pros: Great food, Gorgeous interior, Friendly staff

Cons: A bit pricey

Getting better and better - Edit

We first went here when they opened and there was a big of confusion among the waitresses as to what was vegan. Since then the place has got better and better. Great presentation, food, professional stuff and way more vegan food. On the pricier side, but you get what you pay for.

Pros: Classy, Professional Staff, Super food

Atmosphere at the back yard terrace was lovely.

Pros: vegan menu with several good options, cute back ya

excellent food - must try while in Prague - Edit

Vegetarian and vegan options, this restaurant is excellent. The variety and flavors are superb; nice/fine-dining type place but no dress code. Service can be a bit abrupt (at least when I first arrived) but my server was excellent and provided excellent recommendations, as I was so undecided on what to try! I had the 'scallop' starter which was actually with portobello mushrooms - it was excellent! As was my fried sushi. I would definitely come back here - too bad I'm out of time for the short duration of my trip!
