“Great place for vegetarians and vegans”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

If you are vegan or vegetarian or if you like this type of cuisine, this is restaurant/pub for you. Really great and simple meals for a reasonable price. It is also situated near city center.

“What a wonderful place :-)”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

This is the best restaurant in Brno. For regular prices you get big, tasty meal. Vegan, raw and gluten-free options. Also the great underground place for different gigs.

“Can be disappointing for non-czechs, but a place to go for vegetarian non-gluten diet”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

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.

“Vegan Paradise”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

An amazing place in the center of Brno, pretty easy to find, great choice of meals, pretty cheap and huge biseness lunch. Quite often it helds music concerts. Meals are of a good quality! Still haven't tried their deserts, but heard lots of good things about them. Definately a must for vegan travellers!

“Vegetarian's and vegan's best”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Nice underground atmosphere and good meals. Everything is vegetarian or even vegan, my favourite is robi burger. There are quite often some concerts during the evenings that's why it is smoky here sometimes. They have good choice of beer.
