so good

I got to try vegan Czech goulash here. Had it been socially acceptable, I would have licked the plate clean. The hemp beer seemed like a novelty, but was delicious. My meat-eating mother-in-law even enjoyed the food.

I had asked some locals for a good vegetarian restaurant and this recommendation did not disappoint! I was finding some restaurants hard for different veggie options but the menu was so good in Maitrea that I didn't know which dish to choose. The waiter recommended a gorgeous dish and the portion size was very generous. I loved their fresh pear... More

Located very close to the old town square, Maitrea is a great place for vegetarians and also people who enjoy good food. I have been there twice and had a great time. Especially something to point out is the amazing architecture / atmosphere within the restaurant. It is one of the best feeling places I have ever eaten as it... More

Maitrea and Clear Head are two sister veg restaurants. Maitrea is very nice inside with interesting design especially downstairs. Food is extraordinary with touch of originality. We liked the beans or eggplants, homemade lemonade is a must. Also fresh teas will please you. Home made chocolate was a treat :-) We just like to go there and spend time together... More

The food was pretty good, don't order the raw spaghetti, it's not as good as it sound. Also, there's plenty of room downstairs, so insist that the host will check if there's an empty table

Great and friendly service, amazing food...all at a great price. The place is beautiful! Our favorite was the lower floor as it has a great ambiance. The only thing that would turn this into a 6 star rating would be if they accepted cards instead of just cash. Other than that...totally in love with the place.

This restaurant has amazing food, although the service could be a little better. It was very tough choosing from the menu!

My wife and I had pleasure of visiting Maitrea in the Easter. Coming from southasia, we imagined this vegetarian restaurant would be just like another Indian vegetarian restaurant. But to our pleasant surprise, it is completely different; the variety in menu is small but very delicious. We had flavors, we never experienced before. We spent two days in Prague and... More

The restaurant is very centrally located and convenient for tourists. The food is good and reasonably priced considering the location and the quality of the food. Of course not the best food you can get, but definitely a recommendation!

Being a vegetarian in the Czech Republic is tough so I was really looking forward to this restaurant. Our concierge got us reservations--it was a Sunday night and the place was full. I had the goulash and it was excellent--nice to be able to eat Czech food! Even my meat-eating daughter enjoyed her burrito. The Hemp Valley beer was also... More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
