Tourist trap with odd retro feeling and less than average food - Edit

First of all, the location is amazing and staff was very nice. It looks like typical czech "historical" tourist trap and the food is exactly how you would expect it in such place. You pay for the location and nice view. Food itself is rather boring, not much flavour and very cheap if we are talking about ingredients, but the actual price for meal is high. As mentioned before, year 2000 is still there and all meals we tried looked like that. Go for the view and snacks.

Pros: Great location and view, Nice service and staff

Cons: Expensive, Dull average food, no taste, Feels like tourist trap

Not great, bland food - Edit

I really wanted to like this place but the food was not great. Reminded me of vegetarian restaurants in the 2000s. The baba ganoush was bland. The couscous was boring with just a tiny bit of tofu. The dragons steak was just soy balls with tiny amounts of seasoning. There was no cake left. The coke didn’t have any gas left as it came from a big bottle and the water came from the tab. Overall not recommended.

Pros: Many vegan options, Options clearly labeled, Great location

Cons: Food not great, Drinks not great

Tasty and healthy lunch! - Edit

We tried the dragon’s tongue set and the sampler...every bit was absolutely delicious! Flavorful, and excellent presentation, with a beautiful view at the riverside. Owner is very friendly and makes the meal even more enjoyable. :-)

Best vegan meal in Czech - Edit

I had labyrinth chuti with chili, dhal, mushrooms, and tokari. It was delicious 😋. Great views of the river.

Heerlijk - Edit

Twee jaar geleden heb ik hier ook heerlijk gegeten.
Het was nu maar 300 kilometer om op de terugreis vanuit Kroatië.

Pros: Lekker terras aan het water., Alles vegetarisch., Blije bediening. (Niet gewoon vrolijk: Blij)

Todo un acierto - Edit

Céntrico restaurante vegetariano con terraza junto al rio. Un bonito lugar para comer. La carta es bastante extensa y hay mucho que elegir. Hay varias opciones veganas y la posibilidad de adaptar unos cuantos platos mas. Nos pareció que lo que pedimos estaba muy bueno asi como presentado con gusto. La atención es muy buena también, muy amigables. David es un camarero checo que habla castellano y hace la estancia muy agradable.
Sin duda repetiremos si volvemos a este pueblo.

Amazing place in a beautiful setting. Seating by the river. Brilliant views. Fantastic host and we were engaged in some very friendly discussions with him. Recommend this place to anyone visiting Cesky Krumlov.

Hearty home style food - Edit

This gorgeous place is set on the banks of the river with lots of al fresco seating. The lovely friendly owner goes out of his way to make sure you are well looked after. The food on offer is from all over the world ranging from nachos/burritos to Thai curries, Indian dal n veg and buckwheat pancakes. Very refreshing lemonade. Highly recommended

Great choice for vegans in Kremlov - Edit

Lovely spot serving great food - Edit

Fantastic vegan food! I had a tofu coconut milk dish, and my son had the lentil soup. We had the blueberry dumplings for dessert, and everything was great. We sat on the patio at the waters edge and were entertained by ducks arguing and swimming around. They even walked between out feet which was amusing. The service was very fast and the staff super friendly.

Pros: Great vegan options, Lovely location, Can adapt the menu

Cons: A little costly, but worth it

very late review - Edit

I have to admit, it´s several years ago that I ate there, but i still would like to do a short a review: We were a group of 10 american and german exchange students, we had no reservations and none of the others spoke any czech. But the waiter was so great, even though he spoke neither german nor english and my czech was very bad he kept calm, smiled, did his best to understand me. He arranged some tables for us and we had really nice and decent priced lunch including fresh salads with light dressings and amazing couscous. I always wanted to go back there when my czech is better, never got better.. tak skoda :/

Great location, but food is just ok - Edit

Nice place, easy to find, great location by the river, the staff is friendly, but the quality of food needs to be improved. Some dishes from the menu weren't available. The dessert what I tried was like heaven though.

Don't miss it! - Edit

There are not many vegan options in the beautiful Czech town of Cesky Krumlov. Fortunately, there is Laibon. Owner David Heide is so welcoming (and fluent in many languages) and the food is so good that my wife and I came here for lunch and then returned several hours later for dinner. Technically the restaurant is vegetarian, but they offer many vegan dishes.

Pros: Very friendly staff, Delicious food, Excellent location

Cons: Can't think of one

Great little spot - Edit

Just ate lunch here and loved it. Cesky Krumlov restaurants seem to be very flexible with menu items for vegans so I don’t junk it’s necessary to eat here exclusively, but it is delicious and very affordable. Easy to locate. Friendly staff. Vegan items and vegetarian options which can be veganised are all clearly labelled. I ordered guacamole to start with corn chips, a kombucha and the vegan soy steak with cranberry jam, rice and garden salad. All of it was so delicious. The steak was so yummy I polished my plate clean. Altogether this cost 399 czk which was about 25 aud. large servings too so I didn’t have room for vegan blueberry dumplings but I think I’ll head back again before we leave.

Pros: Lots of options , Great location , Affordable

A must visit place for vegans in Český Krumlov - Edit

We visited this place while on our trip to Český Krumlov and gosh, this restaurant made the whole experience so much better! ♥ It is located right next to the river so you get an amazing view while enjoying your lunch. The food itself was great, my very first vegan meal in a restaurant! We loved it very much😄

It was amazing to find a vegetarian restaurant in such a small town! My brother and I had all our meals here. Everything was really good. The owner and staff was very friendly. The outdoor seating gives really nice views of the castle.

Vegan friendly - Edit

This restaurant gets huge brownie points for being around before vegetarian was a word in Czech! Their menu has evolved and developed over the years and although they're not fully vegan they are super friendly- the waiter remembers me and I only visit once every other year! They can adapt meals to be vegan and the river view is not to be missed.

Pros: Great views , Friendly staff , large menu

Cons: Cash only
