An anti-restaurant, kafka-like experience

I'd like to review the food, but we never got that far. My group of 4 couples managed starters, but when selecting main courses, the waiter told us we were allowed to order a maximum of 4 different dishes. We pointed out that the reason for visiting a restaurant was to order whatever we damned well... read more

even as a non-veggie this place has not only a wonderful setting, but also high quality tasty meals at a bargaining price. the goulash couldnt be distinguished from a meat one, the burritos have been tasty as hell. good place to be.

Yesterday, my boyfriend and I were searching for an unexpensive restaurant for dinner. Our host in Prague recommended a few restaurants so we decided to visit Maitrea, because the website appeared friendly and the menu was wide and not expensive. We had a few troubles to find the right lane, because it was not listed in my city guide. When... More

My wife and I visited Prague for a long weekend on 21 Feb 2015. We are both Vegetarian and generally find good veg food hard to come by. So we checked Trip Advisor before leaving and as a result we pre-booked 3 vegetarian restaurants, (one for each day). We visited Maitrea on our last day and had pre-booked for a... More

Our group of 6 came here with just one vegan but managed to near-convert the other 5 that veggie food can be very good. A lot of the food was fake chicken or fake mice though which I always find a little cheaty. They also had a hemp beer which was very interesting.

it's the 2d time we have been to Prague and after our first sampling of this excellent vegetarian restaurant, we new we had to seek it out again. Although Czech people have a reputation for being vociferous carnivores, we have discovered several exceptions to the the rule and the Maitrea has to be our favourite. It serves a mixed bag... More

The food was delicious and so was the homemade lemonade. The service was friendly but very slow and inattentive. Very good value for money

Spicy with ginger but very refreshing and light. Had the yellow curry main. Delicious and fresh tasting. My husband had the humous with nachos. Humous lovely texture and the... More

Neighborhood Profile
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.
