Pleasant Raw Food

Posted on 10 / 05 / 2014

I think this is the best place in Antwerp but I can see why their are a few strongly negative reviews mixed with the very positive ones. This isn’t the place to come if you are really hungry and want a huge, and cheap, plate of lentils and brown rice. It’s raw food, the portions are quite small and it’s not the cheapest. However the food we both had on a return visit in 2014 was really delicious, great flavours and well presented, in particular the raw “pizza” and the desserts. The staff were freindly and helpful and the location is also central and easy to find. Definitely recommended.

Pros: Vegan, Tasty
Cons: Small portions

So this morning, after many hours on a plane, for the first time I had raw pizza! It was delicious! Buckwheat crust kind of like a cracker, with ricotta cheese made from macadamia nuts, tomato, fresh basil and arugola. Really enjoyed it!

This is my favourite restaurant at the moment in Antwerp.
Perhaps I should say raw food is new to me, but I like to visit 'organic vegetarian' restaurants. I have eaten here very good spaghetti, made of zucchini with red pesto and also dairy free 'blueberry cheesecake', which I can't resist. :-) Super healthy and very tasteful!
Try also the different types of HOMEMADE nutmilk.
Colourful smoothies, soups..., everything FRESH made.
Very sympathetic and enthusiastic owner who uses the purest organic ingredients and prepares them in a respectful way, and that is what you taste.
The restaurant has also a little and quiet outdoor terrace.
If you ask me, you should try it definitely. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Pros: Everything is tasteful, purest organic ingredients are used, friendly owner

During our trip to Antwerp, we had our lunch at 'Eten vol leven'. We had a flax seed wrap and a zucchini spaghetti with tomato salsa. As a desert we shared a dairy free, sugar free, gluten free strawberry cheesecake.
Everything was very well made and delicious. The zucchini spaghetti even inspired us to buy a vegetable spiralizer (no regrets!).
All the food is completely raw, and you can taste the care that went into the food and drinks.
You do pay for the quality though, but it's worth it as everything is organic and fresh.

Pros: fresh and organic products, Delicious, Food is made with care
Cons: pricey, waiting time on the long side

Not friendly - Very expensive

Having found the address on Happy Cow, I was very excited to visit this place in Antwerp. First deception was on arrival: no welcome, no smile, a "dirty" table... Then the food arrived (green soup and gazpacho + wraps) and although the taste of the soups was ok, the portions were tiny and the size of the crackers ridiculous. Prices were very high and absolutely not aligned with the quantity of food!

Pros: Taste
Cons: Unfriendly staff, Cold place, Prices!!!

In a "recyclable wood made" decoration, in this small restaurant the owner cooks your meal in front of you and "on the fly". The ingredients are in shelf at your view. Serves raw food with great taste. Friendly ambience.

Pros: Good taste, Friendly, Speak spanish

The food is wonderful, beautifully presented and original. I can highly recommend the evening meal they do (but sadly it is only four times a year, by pre-booking). The owners are very pleasant, the atmosphere is nice, the food smells are great. Can't recommend too highly.

Everything is gluten-free as well.

Pros: Excellent raw food, friendly, glutenfree

The closest to a vegan restaurant in Antwerpen

4
Posted on 02 / 01 / 2012

First of all, this restaurant is not vegan, but ALMOST. Anyway, the closest to a vegan restaurant you can get in Antwerpen, using only some non-vegan ingredients in a few dishes. It is 100% vegetarian though.
Now, this place offers organic raw food. The owners/chefs are experts and have a good history researching the subject around the world, so you will be presented with exquisite meals. The downside is that it's a bit expensive and you probably will not be full unless you spend a little fortune. That said, all the dishes are homemade (including the raw vegan "pizza", recommended), and that requires a lot of work for a raw place, believe me. Anyway, I'd most likely recommend this restaurant over any other in Antwerpen whether you are a vegetarian or a vegan. They also sell seeds and other products for your own use.

Pros: Delicious food, Raw and mostly vegan, Nice owners
Cons: Expensive, Not 100% vegan, Closes at 15.30

    Thanks for the review! You're right that we're not a 100% vegan in the sense that we do use some bee-products (honey and pollen) making it 'bee-gan' if you will. We'll make an effort pointing this out more clearly on the menu. For all clarities sake though, unless explicitly mentioned on the menu, all dishes a bee-product free.

They have great desserts (I recommend the cheesecake (made with cashew nuts) with a glass of vanilla almond milk). The place is a bit small, but all in all there was a relaxed, nice atmosphere. The guy working there was really friendly. Maybe not the greatest place to have an entire meal, but definitely worth a visit. The only negative is that it's a bit expensive and the portions are a bit small (a small piece of cake costs 6 euros).

Pros: nice atmosphere, delicious cheesecake, friendly staff
Cons: pricey food, small portions

The desserts are ok.
The portions are tiny.
The salads are disappointing.
Always ask if they used honey.

Pros: Desserts, Central location
Cons: small portions, dull salads, expensive

Very Disappointing!

Posted on 09 / 18 / 2011

Being avid vegans, we were very excited to visit the first raw vegan restaurant in Belgium. So it was an unexpected disappointment when we found the atmosphere cold and uninviting (stark white walls, nearly inaudible music, unfriendly and tired-looking staff) but the biggest disappointment was the food. First off, I would like to note that the food was tasty and well-prepared, but that is basically the only positive note to our visit. The portions were TINY: we paid €14 each for two cracker-sized raw "pizzas" and a miniature cup-sized side salad, consisting of green lettuce and 2 or 3 pine nuts. If the portions had been twice the size they were, we probably would still have been hungry. On top of it all, the service was extremely slow, even though there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. We left feeling hungry and ripped off, but most of all we were feeling very disappointed that this restaurant re-enforces every bad cliché, non-vegans might have about (raw) vegan food.

Pros: good food
Cons: extremely small portions, very expensive, slow and unfriendly service
