As I'm coeliac, I have to be sure about ordering a meal without gluten. So, when there is no specification (as in that restaurant), I always ask, to be sure. So, I wanted a long time for an english menu (there was just one EN...More

Do not expect anything fancy. A rather small vegetarian restaurant, offering unique (or difficult to find) various ethnic dishes (Iranian, Romanian etc). Will visit again to taste the pizza......

If you like to experience something different, you found the right place: Lots of green and wood, little gems everywhere, a peaceful atmosphere. And on top of that, the food will just fit this image as it's fresh, organic and very tasty. Always a delight!

The restaurant serves vegetarian dishes. It has a small selection of dishes. The food and service were good, the atmosphere nice. The prices are high for the product/service provided.

Quality and friendliness first, fancy-schmancy last. You don't need meat for a great dinner and you know you'll get the best ingredients for a Pizza unlike any you have eaten before. This hidden gem could (or should) be in Berlin, Paris or New York, so...More

We came here on the recommendation of a colleague when working in Essen in August this year and were not disappointed. We hadn't booked but the very pleasant staff managed to find us a table (the restaurant was busy). The staff were knowledgable & attentive...More

When Zodiac opened in 1987, it was surely ahead of its time: Purely vegetarian, only using organic ingredients. Over the years it has become one of the most loved vegetarian-vegan attractions in the region and beyond. But it offers far more than a unique food and beverage selection. Run by a family that values a welcoming and warm atmosphere, it is a little oasis that allows you to mindfully relax and enjoy.
