With a national cuisine that evolved around meat, Romania was for a long time a tough place for vegetarians. But when it comes to vegetarian restaurants, Bucharest is slowly but steadily catching up. On the flip side, many venues are already experimenting with raw and vegan options, so you’ll find that many offer a varied selection of dishes covering the entire spectrum.

1. Satya

Restaurant, Contemporary, Vegetarian

A vegetarian restaurant with tradition, Satya offers a selection of starters, soups and main courses inspired by kitchens of the world, with a hint of Indian influence. Their raw fruit tortes are spectacular, so do not leave without trying the Choco Mint Raw and the Rainbow Cake.

2. Restaurant Barca - Prietenii si Hrana Vie

Restaurant, Contemporary, Vegetarian, Vegan

Located in the upscale neighbourhood of Floreasca, Restaurant Barca – Prietenii si Hrana Vie offers plenty of options of vegetarian, raw and vegan dishes, including vegan renditions of favourite Romanian dishes, such as drob, cooked instead with mushrooms.

3. Rwdia

Restaurant, Healthy, Vegetarian, Vegan

Also located in Floreasca, Rawdia focuses on superfoods, and has a great selection of juices and smoothies. Try their wraps, and do not miss their delicious raw sushi!

4. Super Falafel

With a minimalist but well-curated menu, Super Falafel is the first vegan fast food brand in Bucharest.

5. Antropotea

6. RawCoco

Restaurant, Contemporary, Vegan

RawCoco is paving the way for the others to follow in their footsteps in the health revolution. The first raw vegan teahouse and sweets shop in Bucharest, it offers a delicious selection of desserts, whose selling point is not what they contain, but what they do not. They are made without sugar, gluten and lactose. Plus, RawCoco also proposes detox programs with juices and offers cooking classes.

The opening of Veg-up is a step forward in the mission of online health food store Sano Vita, which is to cater to Romanian vegetarians and vegans. The restaurant provides its clients not only with Instagram-worthy dishes, but also with free advice on how to adopt a well-balanced, healthy diet.
