First Review by gr8vegan

Good food, kind staff - Edit

Food was really good here! I got the pate starter and a veganized goulash main dish. The staff seem to have lost my goulash order because I waited a very long time for it, but they made it up to me with the raw apple strudel. Yum!

not really impressed - Edit

I liked the menu and the interior, but the food was rather average. We tried the selection of appetizers, which was nice, but we only got two peaces of toast with hummus, guacamole, paté and it was not enough. As a main courses, we ordered stirfry and tex max quesadilla. Portions were not big and I can't say it was something special. I also think the place is a little overpriced. To be honest, I expected something more.

Pros: menu, interior

Kung pao - Edit

I thried some vegan kung paos before, but this one was really the best. Dont know shy but the taste, the sauce was special in something. You have to ask fot it to be vegan not just vegetarian. Carefull with chilly, they put big pieces so cou can easy skip them. ;)

Really Delicious - Edit

Maitrea is a beautiful restaurant with lovely decor and a unique atmosphere. It's fairly large, with two floors, and a very extensive menu with everything labelled with symbols - what is vegan, what can be made vegan, what is gluten free, what is raw, etc.

There was a little trouble with our reservation - they apparently mixed it up, so we did not have a table, but they accommodated us as quickly as they could, and we only ended up waiting about 15 minutes. Reservations are definitely a must here. My friends and I ordered the Maitrea burgers, and I had mine made vegan. It came out fairly quickly, despite how busy they were. The vegan version had a special bun, and came without cheese. It was very delicious!

Pros: Delicious food, Great labelling system

Cons: Reservation was messed up, Reservations required

Maitrea - The best! - Edit

My girlfriend and I took a short break to Prague from the UK recently. Having tried around 10 restaurants for both lunch and dinner meals, we found Maitrea was the most enjoyable!

Friendly service combined with out of this world food made for a wonderful experience that left me wanting more.

The only negative is that there isn't a Maitrea in the UK!

Pros: Incredibly welcoming staff, Tasty food, Good portion size

Cons: There is not one in the UK!

Overrated - Edit

I think this place is aimed mainly on tourists (which isn't necessarily bad), which means it is bit overpriced compared to other restaurants in Prague. The food is not amazing and portions are average. Most of the foods is only vegetarian. Staff is not really friendly and looks at you weird when you ask about vegan food. I wasn't happy with drinks offer.

Pros: Some interesting dishes

Cons: Mostly vegetarian, Overpriced

Lovely decor with comfy seats and soft lighting. There is a lot to choose from on the menu, great for special diets! I had the goulash with dumplings which was very different to what I am used to eating (a bit meaty!) but it was lovely!

Cons: could have done without the music!

Great choice - Edit

Wonderful restaurant with mostly vegan choices. Loved their Mexican dishes. The restaurant is always very busy, so reservations come in handy. We had to sit in the dark alley in the basement a few times. Staff is excellent and very friendly!

Pros: very tasty choices

Cons: very busy at all times

A little bit exquisite... - Edit

Had the goulash which was perfect. Wife had the noodles with tempeh, however that tempeh was not our completely our taste, a little bit sour, very ripe already? We are used to different tempeh taste.. not sure.

Portions were not the biggest compared to the price and other places we have been in Prague.. but still acceptable!

Really good, but not excellent - Edit

The interior of the restaurant was lovely and we enjoyed the food we ordered (a burrito, veggie burger, and mixed appetisers). The mint lemonade was huge and really refreshing! I was a little disappointed about the minimal selection of vegan items on the menu - this place is definitely more vegetarian-focused -but we would go back.

Pros: Lovely place to eat in the centre of the old town , The light fixtures - amazing decor!, Food is good

Cons: Could be more vegan options

One of most delicious mostly vegan menus in the town - Edit

My friend had been raving about this restaurant for so long, so finally took me there.
We ordered various dishes and all of them were delicious. They don't use spices much and rely more on the taste of ingredients which I don't usually like that much but they managed to get the balance right.
One of best foodie experiences in Prague so far.

The average good restaurant for locals in the center of Praguee offers a main dish around 130-150 CZK but all main dishes are above 200 CZK in this restaurant. Thus prices are a bit steep which makes this place more like something you go when you want to treat yourself than on daily basis.
Or you can visit during lunch time when the price for the menu is 135 CZK but I assume you won't be able to get a table without book it in advance.

The place is posh rather than homey, having a high ceiling or having smaller tables right next to the "main aisle". Something I personally don't seek out but at least it is super clean and staff is friendly there :).

It is also highly priced among non-vegetarians/vegans.
Definitely recommend.

Pros: delicious food, attentive yet unobtrusive staff, a lot of different dishes - something for everyone

Cons: price

Stunning decor and tasty food - Edit

Busy place with a gorgeous, relaxing decor. I opted for the vegan goulash, as I wanted to try vegan versions of traditional dishes. A bit disappointed that they didn't have vegan dumplings (potatoes substituted for vegans), but it was very tasty. Staff were friendly.

Pros: Lovely atmosphere

Cons: No vegan dumplings
