Red is justly regarded as excellent for the variety, quality, and tastiness of its vegetarian only fare. Each day perhaps twenty wildly varying salads and mains, a soup, and six or so desserts are presented buffet style ... take what you want, and get it weighed. It is not so easy to get past 10 Euros. Or order one of... More

This is one of the top 10 best restaurants I have visited, including several different countries and cities. I am vegetarian, and I recommend this for non-vegetarians also. The buffet has 40+ choices. I sampled about 20 to 25 items and each one was done very well. One might think this kind of place might have food that is ordinary,... More

If you are vegetarian I can recommend you this place. You have the choice to select different kinds of food from the buffet. Don't be greedy, cause they charge you by weight of your dish! It's a little expensive but fresh and tasty!

Fantastic place! we loved the food. Make sure you make reservation though. We went there on saturday , shortly after 19hrs and had difficulties to get a table. The food is fantastic, fresh, original , yummy. Drinks pretty expensive, compare to the food.

Came here for lunch and very much enjoyed the food. I only tasted the cold dishes, as I love salads and with no exception, they were all very tasty. I am not a Vegetarian at all, but this restaurant became my favourite during my last stay in Heidelberg. will definitely come for more.

I love that this restaurant was all vegetarian/vegan. Very reasonably priced banquet-style food (you pay by the weight). Nice variety - everything tasted good.

We had lunch at this cafe restaurant twice on a recent family visit to Heidelberg. The food is laid out buffet style with a very colourful, beautifully displayed array of cold and hot dishes. You pay by weight and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Although we had almost no German, that was not a problem. Good selection of... More

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!)
