There are 70 possible options on this restaurant’s menu, where almost all recipes are pot-based and made by kitchen robots. The project took seven years to get off the ground and cost more than 1 million euros to complete, but the promoters believe they have arrived at the ideal formula to make customers happy.

Bots & Pots Sci-Food Bistro is in Zagreb and calls itself the first autonomous restaurant in the world, with food made with fresh ingredients. In recent years, several technologies have emerged to automate functions in the kitchen, but they are being applied mainly to fast food – frying potatoes and hamburgers or making pizzas, for example.

This will be the first space where robots make recipes with fresh ingredients, almost all of them in a pot. The human hand is only needed to load the machines that make the food, with the ingredients of the various recipes already prepared. And there are options for different tastes, especially pasta. There are several gnocchi proposals, but also a black risotto, or a Thai curry. Prices vary (for the dishes listed at this moment) between €5 and €9, but the menu changes.

Speaking to Reuters, who visited the space, those responsible admitted that they are already thinking about transforming the concept into a franchise. They also revealed that they believe in the evolution of the restaurant to a space without any human contact. In the current version, Bots & Pots already allows you to arrive, choose the dish and pay at a machine, but there is a human employee organizing work behind the scenes and supporting the restaurant.

The first Bots & Pots has five robot chefs. Each can produce four meals every 15 minutes.
