Würde gerne 5 Sterne geben

Es war super lecker, sowohl die veganen Optionen als auch die omni Gerichte meiner Begleitung. Die Gerichte sind ausgefeilt und schmecken alle sehr gut. Es ist liebevoll angerichtet und es gibt sowohl vegane Vor-, Haupt- als auch Nachspeisen. Wir kommen gerne wieder! Achja, und tolle Location 😍

Pros: Vegane Vor-, Haupt- & Nachspeisen , Nur Bio und regionale Speisen , Alles sehr lecker

Cons: Buffet zu teuer

Fine river dining

Had a lovely dinner watching the paddle boats float by on the river. Lots of vegan options clearly marked on the menu and they have a buffet available as well

I expected more

This is a fully organic restaurant serving meat, but also having vegetarian/vegan options… well it had 3 vegan options: a soup, a main and one dessert. I was kind of disappointed about that😒I ordered the sweet potato soup and it was good, the people with me said there food was alright as well.

Service was very nice and super fast! Overall a satisfying experience, but I hope they start to offer more vegan options😄

Pros: All organic, fast service, good food

Cons: only few vegan options

Zertifiziertes Bio-Hotel und Restaurant

Frische, saisonal wechselnde Karte mit einigen veganen/vegetarischen Gerichten (viele Gerichte können auch in Vegan umgewandelt werden).
Tolles und entspanntes Ambiente.
Etwas preisintensiver, aber immernoch gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

Pros: Saisonale Karte , Vegetarische und vegane Gerichte , Angenehmes Ambiente

Cons: Preisintensiv

Leckeres saisonales Angebot, guter Service

Kleine, aber feine Karte (für Vegan-Lebende enthielt die Karte eine vegane Vorspeise, zwei vegane Hauptgerichte, ein veganes Dessert). Saisonale Küche, Bio-Qualität. Das Essen war lecker, gute Portionsgröße, sehr ansprechend angerichtete Speisen, sehr guter Service.

Preislich angemessen: Wir waren zu Zweit, haben für eine Vorspeise, zwei Hauptspeisen, zwei Desserts, fünf Getränke 88 Euro bezahlt.

Pros: Saisonale Küche , Bio-Qualität , Gute Portionsgröße

Really good vegan options

I ate here with three people who were not vegan, and everyone loved the food. There were several clearly-marked vegan items on the menu, and a large Salad bar and Dessert bar with mostly vegan items. There was also a Bread bar, with really good bread. I had Vegan Garlic Cream Soup and the Salad bar. The setting inside is quiet and very inviting. Strandgut is on the banks of the Elbe River, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and rock formations.

Pros: Really good vegan options, Beautiful setting, Friendly staff

Mixed Feelings

The variety and quality of the vegan food is fantastic if you don't mind sitting on only animal fur and skin chairs and pillows and watching lamps made out of deer antlers.

Pros: All organic, except for some animals

Cons: Expensive

Really good cuisine

We went there twice. Had cauliflower, vegan paella and vegan gyros. All really delicious and with a twist. Most food is produced locally and all is organic. Especially for this region of Germany outstanding!

Pros: Vegan dishes and desserts!

Cons: a little pricy but worth it

Bio an der Elbe

Restaurant im Biohotel in Schmilka. Sehr gut und schön gelegen. Es gibt eine vegane Karte mit leckeren Speisen. Bei den Desserts wäre ein grösseres veganes Angebot toll gewesen. Dafür gabs aber ein tolles Frühstücks- und Salatbuffet mit viel Auswahl. Leider wird man als Veganer im Hotel selbst mit Tierfellen in den Zimmern konfrontiert.

Pros: Vegane Karte, Reichhaltiges Frühstücks- und Salatbuffet, Gute Lage

Cons: Eher teuer, Hotel ist NICHT vegan -> Tierfelle :-(, Personal ab und zu unaufmerksam

Organic hub in national park

This restaurant has a beautiful location, right along the Elbe River and at the riverside of the national park. The village of Schmilka is a surprising hub of organic food, with some vegan options. Strandgrun for example is the restaurant of the vegetarian Helvetica hotel. Strandgrun is the fanciest vegetarian restaurant we found in the area and the most refined dishes. They offered several interesting dishes including a vegan crème brulee with mango. We enjoyed cabbage roll filled with bell pepper and mushrooms, and a vegan gyros platter. These dishes were good but the taste was also not very special.
Thus, a perfect spot to end or start a hike as you can enjoy their refined food and relax in the swing at the waterside.

Cons: early reservation needed for weekend dinner

Bio Hotel with vegan options

We went there after a nice bike ride from Dresden to the Czech boarder.
They had a vegan soup, three vegan main dishes and vegan sorbet for dessert on the menu. They also serve Lammsbrau Dunkle Weiße which is our favorite non-alcoholic beer.

We shared a soup, and both had a different main dish. The sorbet we choose as dessert was Apfel-Sanddorn, it was very tasty.

Compared to Berlin where we used to live I would say it is rather expensive but I find all the restaurants that have vegan options in the area of Dresden and surrounding seems to be like that.

Pros: beautiful outside seating, easy to find, various main dish choices

Cons: reservations needed, especially in the winter, just one vegan dessert

Quiet and Scenic

Located at the German-Czech border on the banks of the Elbe River. A few well identified Vegan options on the menu including Desert. Great outdoor seating along the river path. Accessible from S-Bahn from Dresden stops across the river from the town and a short ferry ride or along the Elbeweg bike path. (I biked from Dresden 60km up the river path.)

Pros: scenic, chill, friendly staff

Cons: few vegan options

Hidden Gem!

We went to the Toskana Therme for the afternoon for my birthday, and then headed here after to try it out. Everything was really delicious and filling. They had two soups, one was vegan, so we ordered that. It was a tomato and eggplant creme with pesto and croutons. Then I ordered a cabbage roll filled with wild mushrooms, celery root/potato mash, and a red wine sauce. Not sure if any of the desserts were vegan because I was too stuffed to even see what they had. The restaurant overlooks the Elbe, so we went for a walk along the river path, which can be directly accessed from the restaurant. It has been snowing the past week, so everything looked very beautiful in the late evening. I can't wait to cycle back here in the summer from Dresden, as you can sit right outside by the river. You have to look for Hotel Helvetia when driving by, because there's no sign for the restaurant. The service was also really good!

Pros: Vegan options!!, Organic

calm and relaxing

A bio-hotel and restaurant where you wouldn't expect it, at the end of the world in a small village right next to the Czech-German border.

The atmosphere is very calming, with lots of light coming in during the day and a nice view to the river. The place looks a bit fancy and the food isn't so cheap, but it's not unwelcoming and prices are worth it.

We were there on thursday, which turned out was their completely vegetarian day. The menu still contained dishes with meat but it wasn't possible to order them. Good!

The food was very creative and tasty. Not the normal vegan dishes, but lesser known vegetables and creative combinations. I had a soy-millet steak with tomato-lemon sauce which tasted delicious.

Definitely recommended if you're in the area!

Pros: one day a week completely veggie, tasty food

Cons: bit expensive
