Not vegan - Edit

We went inside expecting a vegan restaurant. When we spotted at least one thing containing honey, we went out. So please put this restaurant in a correct category.

Pros: Good place, RAW

Cons: Not vegan, Pricey

The place to go for raw food - Edit

Great place for vitarians or people who want to try out raw food. All the meals are raw and there is an option to order a little bit of everything, so you can explore the possibilities of raw food. During weekdays you may select from the lunch menu as well, which is less expensive than the food from the regular menu.

The staff was friendly and helpful, I liked the interior as well - however I could hear noise from the kitchen when sitting in the room in the back. I didn't mind but some people might not be happy with it.

Pros: Good food, Friendly staff

Good Raw Stuff - Edit

I visited three times, twice with my sis and once alone. It was always delicious but bloodily over-priced.

Pros: One of the few raw places in Prague, Nice interior

Cons: Expensive

Lovely place - Edit

Secret of Raw is a really lovely place to spend an evening. It's quite peaceful and relaxed, the service is good but unobtrusive, and the pictures of the food on the walls look so tempting! I had the garlic mushroom pancakes, and I loved them, though the side salad was a little too large for me! My mum tried the raw spaghetti and she thought it was fantastic, and my partner was impressed with the coconut tortillas. I wish we hadn't been too full for dessert!

Pros: Fresh, colourful food, Great atmosphere

Very fancy raw vegan place - Edit

Secret of raw is one of the best raw vegan places I have ever visited. Their presentation of food is amazing. I have been there a few times and never been disappointed. Once I also ordered the food online and it was a blast and I didnt even put my slippers off:D I have tried so many meals there but I really love raw vegan pizza with rocket, black olives and cashew dressing as well as raw vegan banana pancakes. I highly recommend this place for those who are very passionate raw foodists but of course not only them;)) The atmosphere is very nice, very beautiful interior, check for free table in advance just to be sure since it is a small place. It is a bit more expensive but really worthy:)))

Incredible! - Edit

I've had my dinner here two nights in a row because the food is so good. So much flavour, I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. This, along with My Raw Cafe, have changed the way I think about raw food. Their onion quiche was so creamy and delicious, and their crêpes are to die for. They also have incredible juices. I love it!

Pros: The strawberry and banana crêpe!, Amazing raw juices , Dogs allowed :)

Cons: None!

Great Raw Option - Edit

Disclaimer: I am in NO way an expert on raw food ;)
We were staying in an AirBnB five minutes from this restaurant so it was extremely convenient; for anyone staying closer to the city centre, it is definitely worth the journey to get here. We ordered the sharing platter and it was all pretty yum, though the burger was my favourite. The "fries" we're not really my cup of tea but I guess that's because I'm too much of a fan of hot, greasy, salty fries!
The platter was SUPER filling but was an awesome way to

Wonderful raw chocolate cake - Edit

We found this place while walking towards Vinohrady (it is not in the tourist area) and we just had tea and cakes, however I must say that the cakes were beyond our expectations :)
Specially the raw chocolate cake -> don't miss it :)

Pros: Good value, Outdoor seating, Cakes :)

Make a Reservation - Edit

I'd been looking forward to trying this place all week, only to arrive and find it full...luckily it turns out they offer take-away! The staff member told me they are full most nights, but it's possible to make a reservation online or by telephone. I ordered a pizza (normally 240 korun, 99 when I went due to a special offer) and bought some raw chocolate (95 korun) to take-away (+10 korun for the pizza box), and the order was prepared very quickly - I didn't time it, but it was definitely less than ten minutes. The pizza was about 25cm in diameter, and whilst I found the base a bit thin (it fell apart when I tried to pick it up, best eaten with cutlery I think), they certainly did not skimp on toppings and it was very filling. There is a large selection of fully raw, mostly vegan items, a small store, and what seemed to be a relaxed atmosphere. The staff were friendly too - personally I'd return.

Pros: location, many vegan options

Cons: gets very busy, a little expensive

Love it! - Edit

This restaurant was one of my favourites. The style is really western so be aware that the food is heavy and high in fat. However it was really delicious. We ordered the burgers (rather sandwiches but good!), a salad (heavy dressing but also nice), the Caprese (good if you like those nut cheeses), the peas soup (delicious!), the pizza (delicious!). They also offer fresh coconuts! The desserts are great aswell but the pancake was not that exciting. Con: The interior is awful! Looks like a student apartement. It's also not really romantic. The lights are super bright and there is not a nice atmosphere...but go there for the food ;)

Not to be missed! - Edit

One of my favorite meals in three weeks of travel. All vegan & raw, a few items with honey. Incredible and varied menu and great prices. I was so sad to not have room for dessert. The banana crepe looked so good. I wish I had made it there earlier in the trip as I most certainly would have gone back. They also sell some snacks and other items. Absolutely loved it.

Pros: Menu, Food, Value

98% vegan! - Edit

I literally bumped into this place whilst walking around Prague. The cake display cabinet is big and shiny and full of delicious looking cakes, I was told they were all vegan that day. The one I had was superb, as good as any raw cake I've ever had, luxurious, rich and succulent. And relatively cheap! I will return when next in Prague to try more.

Strangely the word vegan is absent from their front door or window displays.

Pros: Decadent Vegan raw cakes, fancy but friendly

Cons: Not cheap, Advertised as raw not vegan.

Amazing raw food - Edit

I have not been a big fan of raw food and I had some bad experiences from other places but this restaurant changed my mind and if I was able to "cook" this way I would be raw foodist immediately! I had "pancakes" with marinated mushrooms, spinach and cheese-like garlic spread and it was amazing. I also tried cucumber soup which was ok and dessert called "Strawberry crumble" which was incredibly tasty! Unfortunately the restaurant is quite expensive (for Czech people) so I can't afford to visit it too often but I wish I could :) The interior is very elegant and crew is nice.

Great Food, Friendly Service - Edit

The food here is really good, very fresh and full of flavour. We had the sharing platter for 2 and chocolate cake, all of which was delicious. The service was very friendly and efficient, which makes a nice change in prague! Really good value, especially given the high quality ingredients. Would definitely recommend!

Pros: Great Food, Friendly Waiters, God Value

Raw food in Prague - Edit

The place is listed as vegetarian here what means uses cow milk and cooks the food. This place is actually fully RAW from soup to dessert! That was very nice surprise to find a raw restaurant from Prague. My family loves raw food and this place exceeded our expeditions.
They had beautiful pictures and photos decorated with stones on the wall which we liked. Nice music was playing.
The staff talked English.
They accepted credit card.
The food was create and filling. We had soup and hummus. They tasted very well. My wife had raw burger and that was delicious. My little girls had banana pancakes and they liked them a lot.
They offered local wine. I liked the withe one, because it had its own taste, the red one was more average.
There was small corner where kids could play.

Pros: Fully raw food, Tasteful food, Beautiful interior

Just Gorgeous - Edit

We are in Prague for the week and had Secret Of Raw down as one of our "Must Try" restaurants. We were not disappointed.

Secret Of Raw is an all-raw, mostly vegan restaurant in Praha 3. I say "mostly vegan" as apparently a few dishes contain honey, though there were none on the menu when we visited. It's easy to find in a nice location, we walked there in around 15 minutes from our hotel in Praha 1.

The restaurant itself is lovely. The decor and music are all very soothing, and the staff were great. The menu was available in English and the waitress who served us was also a fluent English speaker. We turned up without booking a table but were seated immediately, even though they looked to be fairly busy.

The food blew us away. My Husband had sun-dried tomato rolls for his starter, I had the bruschetta. Both dishes were beautifully presented, the flavours were very fresh and clean but incredibly more-ish! The same could be said for our shared main course - the tasting platter for two. This included samples of the sun burgers and fries, pizza, ravioli, fajita and spaghetti. Everything was absolutely delicious, and this was a nice way to try many of the main courses at once. We were too full for dessert (the portion sizes were very generous) but we will definitely be back again this week to try them.

We were really happy with the prices. We ended up paying less than a quarter of what we've previously paid at a well-known raw restaurant in London. It was a little pricey by Prague standards but we expect that when we choose to eat at a specialist restaurant like that.

The only real gripe I have was that the food took a little longer to show up than I'd have expected. However, they were fairly busy so it is forgivable.

We will be back this week for sure, I'd like to try their lunch menu and their desserts looked far too good to miss!

Pros: Great vegan food, Lovely staff and atmosphere, Reasonable prices

Cons: Service can be slow at busy times
