If you live in Czech Republic and are used to the horrible services and choice of vegetarian meals in the restaurants, which are always the same (usually "schnitzl"-style fried cheese, fried mushrooms or broccoli with cheese, usually served with boiled potatoes), you find this restaurant a relief. However, you have to be used to the Czech cuisine - the meals served here for lunch are mainly vegetarian/vegan variants of czech meals, which means soja or wheat proteins are substituted for meat, and the remaining "sauce and side (again potatoes or dumplings) remain the same.
If you are a non-czech vegetarian, or vegetarian that traveled a lot and knows how good it can get, very probablty, you will not be very pleased.
The meal special for lunch is very cheap (75 CZK for soup and main meal), which is another thing Czechs love, so you cannot expect high quality ingredients.
We returned multiple times past year 2013 for lunch, mainly because of poor choice of other restaurants in my area and for very good price.
Sometimes we were, however, very positively surprised with the offer - it happens that you can eat very well, but I would say this happens 1/4 times, probably depends on the cook.
However, they have always 3 meals to choose from and always a non-gluten special. If you are vegan and non-gluten, you might not always find a meal for you, but the chances you will are much larger than anywhere else in Brno.
The most negative point is the air in the restaurant (placed in the basement, I would say old wine cellar style) is pretty heavy, moist and smells a bit mouldy.
Over lunch the only dessert they usually had was not homemade, but bought "medovnik", which is an armenian specialty honey cake, very popular in Czech Republic. The bought version, however, is far from a good homemade cake.
We were never appealed to visit this restaurant, which has rather a very pub atmosphere, in the evening.
