Located a very short distance off of the Old Town main square, Country Life serves excellent, well prepared vegan cuisine at a very reasonable price. An excellent alternative to the heavy Czech dishes of other restaurants

While searching quite unsuccessfully for healthful and reasonably priced food in Prague's tourist area with overpriced, fat-laden and rich foods, we came upon Country Life and decided to give it a try. It turned out better than we could ever have imagined!!! Everything was delicious,...well-prepared, nicely served and incredibly reasonable in price. This isn't where most tourists go!!!! Locals know about it! The entrance doesn't face the street-you go through a walkway first. The interior is charming with tables made a recycled woods-very interesting and rustic. We had a lovely lunch in a quiet atmosphere away from the crowds! Our 4 take away desserts cost $4.00!!! Lunch for 2: only $15.00 including a large bottle of ale!!! We will go back for sure!!!More

Amazing little restaurant (Vegan/Veg). Simple Buffet Style - hot and cold. Great salad bar and selection of hot food. Grab a tray, load up, weigh and pay!

This is a hidden pearl. You can get a very very cheap and delicious meal. It's like a cafetaria. You can also take away for trips. We went there 5 times and the last time took food for the train trip back home It was...delicious!! Make sure you did this!More

This is a cafe adjoining a very good health food shop. It's comfortable and friendly and the food was extremely varied, fresh, creative and delicious. We ended up going there two days in a row we liked it so much. You just take as many...different plates as you like and choose from a range of salads, soups, cooked dishes and thenthe plate is weighed at the end. Our meal came to about 8 Euros each. Highly recommended for a tasty, healthy and budget friendly lunch:)More

Having visited Country Life more than 15 years ago, I was expecting again a good deal and some tasty Czech cuisine - time has not been kind to the pricing and the food was more international than Czech, but the new seating area was really...nice! There truly isn't a lot of choice for vegetarians in Prague except vegetarian restaurants, so it's great this is so central and remains an option! Service was friendly and the attached store had a great choice of veg foods too.More

In the middle of the city, few meters from Astronomical clock, bit hidden from tourist route you can find probably the oldest vegetarian restaurant in Prague. Interior is very simple, very nice. Self service. Daily menu. On food and salad bar you will find cca...20 types of salads, 10 types of hot dishes, two types of soups, sauces and will get water for free. The cost is according of weight. Food is very tasty, light, not much spice and not spicy at all. For vegans and vegetarians, strongly recommended. Enjoy.More

As well as the main shop and restaurant they have several smaller ones in Prague. Also their products are sold by many of the Health and Organic Food Shops. The main shop needs to be enlarged and modernised as it gets ever more popular! I...like their good value grains and nuts and cereals sold by weight and you help yourself. best value. Their organic vegeatables are a bit pricey and can vary in quality. The self service restaurant has a huge variety of salads and dressings so be careful not to fill your plate before you reach the selection of hot dishes and soup. Also some nice cold desserts. A hot dessert of the day would be a nice addition as they do with the soup specially in winter! The cafe could use a facelift and some decoration as its a bit drab and dated now. Good value and healthy AND tasty!More

Vegetarians will love it, you can choose between several meals, such a vegetarian burger, soya goulash or corn steak. Fast-food self-service style.

We are a family of 5 vegetarians, 1 vegan and a carnivore! This food was the best meal out we have ever had. We got there at lunch time and eventually worked out that you just took a plate , tried whatever you liked the...look of( most of it) and got the plate weighed at the end. Our huge meal for 8 including drinks was £40 and not a scap was left. Easily the best veggie food I have ever had and the luxury of an enormous choice made it even better. Tasty beyond belief. The vegan was very impressed and we would have eaten here a lot more except sadly they were shut over Xmas. So glad we got there and can't rate this too highly.More
