This restaurant offers a good vegetarian buffet, an original choice of beverages, and some hot meals per day. I like it, especially when one can eat outside. I have to admit that I haven't fully understood the target of customers that it has, because it is slightly more expensive than I would expect for a business lunch, is far from... More

This is really good and healthy food. They have wide variety of vegetarian food and wasn't expensive at all. It's walkable distance from Town center. We did reserve our table and as time went by, we noticed that the place was practically full. So it's advisable that you reserve a table. I am amazed to see an pure vegetarian restaurant... More

3 of us ate here for €35 and ate very well. Take a plate and select from the 20 odd cold dishes (such as pear and roasted leek, spinach and sun dried tomatoes, bulgar wheat salad, etc) and 8 hot dishes including ravioli in cheese sauce, polenta cakes with tomatoes, vegetables au gratin, etc). Then get plate weighed and pay... More

Great spot. Casual dining, good for families. Quality of the food was excellent. Hard to find fresh healthy food in Germany! The staff was also very sweet, explaining everything to us in English since we could not understand the labels:)

This place is an excellent escape in a city full of sausage. All the food is vegetarian (and much of it vegan). Grab a plate and fill it with whichever of the 20+ dishes look good, you pay at the counter afterwards per kilo of food. Their deserts were great too!

Luckily we were visiting Germany during Spargel (asparagus) season so we had no real trouble finding vegetarian options in restaurants. But Red was a real treat!! Everything is vegetarian and freshly prepared and delicious. You pay by weight and fill your plate from a delightful assortment of cold and hot items. Our plates were filled after sampling only about 35%... More

Traveling throughout eastern Europe I was afraid of the lack of veggies other than kraut and potatoes. On a mission to get some leafy greens I found this place on Trip Advisor and told my husband we needed to try it. After flying all night and walking around for hours, we were famished. We chose the buffet and began to... More

In the bread, cheese and cream world that is Germany, finding a fresh vegetable bar is an absolute dream. I love this place. I wouldn't say it's the best food I've ever eaten, but it ranks up there for their wide breadth of prepared vegetable options served up buffet style. The offerings are always fresh and I leave feeling healthy... More

I'm so glad I found this place on a recent trip to Heidelberg. It is located on a quiet street teeming with locals and students (not tourists) just a short walk from the historic old-town (on Post-strasse, walking toward the Hauptbahnhof). Basically this gourmet but buffet-based restaurant provides a smorgasbord of vegetarian options (salads, casseroles, falafels, etc) that you can... More
