Best Vegetarian Restaurant in town!

Simply the best. Lots of options to choose. You pick all that you want and pay by weight. I have not seen so much veggies in Heidelberg in one restaurant. If you are a Vegetarian, you will simply love this place.

Brilliant vegetarian restaurant with good interesting food selection, delightful local wines and friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value (and a place to help rebalance the body after all those carnivorous German meals!)

This is the place to go if you are looking for bio and gluten free food. All vegetables and fruits are fresh from the day, perfectly cooked or seasoned and everything is bio guaranteed. The best option is to go for the buffet where temptations will create as many dilemmas as they are dishes. Be careful as you will pay... More

The food here is very delicious. You will get a buffet, from which you can pick anything you want. Then they charge you based on the weight of the food. It is approx 2 EUR per 100 g. They also have some good Bio Weizenbier. All the food items are organic and vegetarian.

They have a vast choice of salads and cooked vegetables, all in a buffet (paid by weight), and 1 dish of the day made-to-order. The food is tasty, despite the bio, veggie, hippy atmosphere and menu (a turn-off for me; at least it's not vegan: they have cheese). I liked the big windows, the "ikea"-style decor, and the kitchen herbs... More

It's so refreshing to visit a city (or an entire country!) with veg options. Red offers a wide variety of salads and entrees in their extensive buffet, featuring 30+ preps. Customers pay by weight, so choose wisely. Nice ambiance inside, in addition to outdoor, patio seating. Located 100m down the road from Alnatura, a German grocery store with tons of... More

Honestly speaking I'm really surprised about positive comments on this place. There is nothing special inside, just some salads and vegetables...and those are expensive, too, without reason! Flies are flying over the food and hygiene is not the best.

This isn't London, you won't get seitan or nothing, but taken for what it is - a large buffet full of healthy, tasty, intermittently German vegetarian cuisine - it's an excellent options. Whole grains, soups, casseroles, it's a good blend. Good quinoa, okay falafel. I can't speak to the quality of the desserts, not having tried them, but the entrees,... More

I read this as a veggie/vegan restaurant and thought it would be a nice change for my wife. Alas I was disappointed. This to me was a grand salad buffet. If that is what you like then fine but I was expecting some creative vegetarian dishes and it was not evident, other than a dish of the day, this was... More

We went there for lunch, everything was fresh and absolutely delicious. The selection of hot and cold vegetarian dishes is huge and served in buffet style. Everything we tasted was an amazing experience. None of our party was vegetarian and we didn't miss meat or fish at all! Dishes are paid by weight, so not cheap but great value for... More
