For high quality vegetarian food in a modern and calm setting, Maitrea is a great bet. Located near Old Town Square, the restaurant with elegant Buddhist-inspired decor serves an eclectic range of vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and health conscious meals, from goat cheese quesadillas to vegetarian twists on Czech classics such as Goulash and Svickova (a must try). While not strictly organic, the restaurant owners make an effort to choose seasonal, local and organic ingredients whenever possible.

“We’re always happy when we can inspire people to have more courage to eat without meat. We try to inspire through good taste and a friendly environment.” – Martin Dobeš, co-owner of the Maitrea restaurant
