A delicious vegan risotto - Edit

We ate vegan risotto and a tomato soup, very good both them, but the risotto is better, very recommended. Too they have more vegan options in day menu, for example that day they had vegan paella and lasagna, but this depends of day.

The prices are normal for the area.

Recommended!

Pros: Delicious vegan risotto

Cute and delicious - Edit

I love eating at Bistrot et chocolat, the place is cute and cosy, the waiters are nice and the food is amazing !
There's always at least one vegan option :)

Caution : the hot chocolate can be based on soya milk BUT the chocolate used contains cow milk... I didn't know it when I ordered it, it wasn't precised on the menu

Pros: Delicious

Cons: Hot chocolate hard to "veganize"

Nice place! - Edit

I went there for lunch and there were plenty of vegan options to choose from. The food was very good and was brought to the table promptly even though it was very busy! I will definitely visit again.

Lovely - Edit

I was visiting Strasbourg a few days ago and for some reason I had not put this place on my list... Yet we found it by chance (...and believe me finding a vegetarian place by chance in FRANCE requires precisely beaucoup de chance) :)
The staff was super sweet;
The pie as well was really nice (it was an afternoon break so we just had coffee and pie)

Pros: nice location, vegan options clearly labelled, nice staff

Lovely place - Edit

Everytime my husband and I visit Straßbourg (which is quite often) we eat at Bistrot & Chocolat. Within the week they have a different 'plat du jour' each day, which we always chose if it`s vegan. Other than that there are two warm vegan meals on the menu (a veggie burger with salad and potatoes as a side) and a vegan pasta = both are delicious.
If you want a vegan dessert, you can check with the waiter/waitress to make a 100% sure since it´s not always declared vegan in the menu.
I personally love the chocolate fondue cake with raspberry icecream but I wish there was more vegan options on the menu.
I still love this place because it´s a cozy place with yummy food and friendly staff.

Popular place - Edit

I was in Strasbourg at an unusually warm time in February and sat outside on their patio, which soon became full. They have a great menu and the place is obviously well-loved by locals. The downside of this busy-ness is that the service was really rushed and not great. It's well-located between the back corner of the cathedral and the river.

Pros: Super menu, location, outdoor patio

Cons: rushed service, not cheap

Great Little Place! - Edit

Recently in Strasbourg for Christmas Markets, had two lovely dinners here. Both nights my spouse & I made sure one had the special while the other ordered from the menu. We were very happy with all our choices. My spouse(an omnivore) especially enjoyed one night's special of veggie lasagna and later declared it was the best meal he had in town. I had both veggie and vegan dishes, no complaints - I cleaned the plate both nights!(ovo-lacto veggie when traveling for cheese).
The staff was great!! They are very helpful and informative. Great chocolate gifts for those who partake!

Pros: daily specials!

Cons: small

interesting trendy tasty - Edit

Interesting food. Reasonable vegan options. Not much flexibility for special requests and lots and lots of white sugar and cheese. Very friendly and picturesque location. A must stop in Strasbourg.

Cosy and quirky and vegan friendly - Edit

Was here last night ( a Saturday evening) and was really happy to find such a place near the cathedral. I was the only vegan in our group but the others ( all meat eaters) were happy with their food too. I read that during the week the daily specials usually include several vegan options so was slightly disappointed that in the evening there was only one option in the mains. The same for the dessert ( as well as fresh fruit) but it was delicious! This place is also supposed to be good for hot chocolates but I was too full to try... Will do when it gets a bit colder :)
The interior decoration is cosy and a bit quirky and the outdoor terrace is very nice too, all in all a good place that I would recommend.

Nice place to stay with good food - Edit

The restaurant is located right next to the cathedral and was easy to find. There were a number of vegan options available, which were clearly marked. The vegan burger came with delicious home-made ketchup. Overall, the food was very good and not too pricey. The waitress who served us was bilingual (french/german).

Pros: good food, friendly staff

Great find! - Edit

We were initially skeptical about eating here due to some of the reviews we'd seen, but we walked past it and thought it looked really promising so stopped for tea. There are only a few vegan options on the regular menu, but they're clearly marked. Of the daily specials, I believe 4 of 7 were marked vegan, and 2 of these were also gluten free. I highly recommend the burger! All the food was delicious - my partner even ate the aubergine on his plate even though he normal hates it. Staff were very friendly and spoke a little English. Also in a really nice location (next to the cathedral) with reasonable prices for Strasbourg. We paid around 25 euros for two mains and two drinks, though there were also cheaper menu options. Worth a visit!

Pros: Great food , Plenty of vegan options

Cons: Closes quite early , Some dishes a little pricey

Too Bad - Edit

After failing to find another nearby vegan restaurant I then went to this as it was my planned backup. I did not eat there because the few tables inside were full, and the outdoor seating area was filled with smokers. I did stop to look at the menu, and it was in French only, and then I found that the staff spoke no English and did not understand what I meant when I used the terms Vegan, Vegetarian, Vegetarier and so I gave up.

Cons: Smokers filled the eating area, No English menus, Staff didn't know what a Vegan was.

Jalebi Boy 10 Feb 2016 - You seem to have a hard time finding addresses [especially in Strasbourg]! If you can't find a place, a review may not be necessary.

clemacle 08 Jun 2016 - I can assure you the staff knows what vegan is! I going very often there and they know what vegan and vegetarian is + it is excatly the same word in french! Then some of the staff may not speak english but you re in France ! When I am going to the usa I speak english and no french. And when going to a country I don't speak the language, I always have a small dictionnary whith me so I can be understood.You can't blame them for not speaking your language!

a good vegan option - Edit

My friend and I were in Strasbourg for a day and visited this place since it served vegan food.

We arrived in the afternoon and both ate pasta with sautéed vegetables on top. It was delicious! I really liked the soft spicy flavour and even loved the eggplant which I normally find uneatable.
The staff was friendly and after some explaining vegetarian meals could be made vegan. The only problem was that they didn't speak English.

The place also offers delicious looking desserts and packaged homemade chocolate and some lovely kitchenware.

The bistrot is located in the city centre, close to the cathedral. But since it's on a side street, you can barely hear any city noises when you're sitting outside.

Definitely a place to check out - especially for vegans (because there aren't a lot of options in France).

Pros: lovely atmosphere, city centre

Cons: not many vegan lunch choices, only french speaking staff, not very big portions

Several Vegan Options Outside of Brunch Service - Edit

Great place, wonderful staff and service. But sadly the weekend brunch doesn't have a vegan option, and no menu service is available during the brunch rush. (Although the owner said he was considering an update to have a vegan brunch option in the future.) So we had a hot chocolate with soymilk (very good), and came back at 14:00 for lunch. The vegan veggie burger was very good! And for dessert there was sorbet and fruit. And I think the dark chocolate fondue was vegan too, but we didn't verify. Desserts are so easy to make vegan, I'm confused why there wasn't more choice from the large dessert menu.

Pros: Everything vegetarian, Nice owner and staff, Good burger

Cons: No vegan brunch option, Not enough vegan dessert choices

Excellent little restaurant - Edit

Our hotel was right next to Bistro & Chocolate so we ate there several times. There was always a choice of several vegan options, including the most delicious desserts! The food was wonderful, and the service was excellent. We really enjoyed eating there.

Pros: interesting menus, good value, friendly staff

Cons: They closed at 6:00 pm!

Limited vegan options but nice atmosphere - Edit

It's a very cozy place with nice old style decoration. They have different brunch options but unfortunately there's no many options for vegans in their menu.. it's mainly all vegetarian!
I would love if they could incorporate more vegan options in their menu..

Pros: Nice decoration, Cozy place, Good food presentation

Cons: Limited vegan options

Very pleasant - Edit

Pros: Situated, very conveniently, in a central location. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and, weather permitting, you can eat indoors or outdoors. The food was absolutely delicious and there was a good selection of both main courses and deserts. Our waitress was very friendly and accommodating.

Cons: Service was a little slow but the restaurant was quite busy at the time and the delay did not spoil our experience. There were five of us (sitting indoors) and it was a bit cramped.

Overall, I would strongly recommend a visit.

Pros: Good food, Good selection, Pleasant decor

Cons: Slow service, A bit cramped (for five)

Good food but not really vegan choices - Edit

When I tried this restaurant in October 2012, they had no vegan dishes in their menu card, except a small salad. I consequently asked if it was possible to have something more interesting but without dairy (that they use a lot) and eggs. If the waitress did never heard what veganism is, I explained and the cooker was able to give me a nice customized vegan dish (you can see the pictures of it, above). So, I was happy with that and with the fact that they said me they will try to have some vegan options in the future. However, vegan choices in terms of dessert were also very small, for not saying inexistent, which is very a shame! Vegans want chocolate desserts too!

Pros: good food, nice place and location, friendly staff

Cons: not really vegan choices

Slightly disapointing for vegans - Edit

The restaurant is really nice and close to the center but as a vegan I wasn't that happy. They have except for the salad no vegan food on their card but they made me a veggie burger without cheese.
Sadly it wasn't very tasty, the patty seemd to be homemade with tofu, veggies and curry but the texture was awful and the whole food wasn't spicy enough, just boring.
They have lots of desserts but except of the fruit salad and 3 sorbets non of them where vegan which is very sad for a bistrot that is well-known for their chocolat desserts.
They serve breakfasts and brunch, but there are no vegan options so bare this in mind!
My mom was disapionted, too her food wasn't tasty and so she didn't eat it. Her dessert was fine, my fruit salad was disapointing, just apples, melon and pineapple for 4,50€
The best was the side salad, but honestly, I can eat salad in every restaurant and I visited this place to get tasty, warm vegan food...

If you are vegetarian, this might be a nice place for you but if you are vegan, this is rather stopgap solution than a great experience.
I honestly don't know why the don't even try to offer vegan options?! Usually every vegeterian restaurant does this...

We payed 45€ for 2 meals, 2 desserts, 2 coke light and 2 coffee.

Pros: nice place, close to the center

Cons: almost no vegan options!, boring food

Cozy place - Edit

Very cozy cafe. Central. There wasn't much that looked vegan on the menu, but some of the dishes could probably be adapted, and the dish of the day was vegan: roasted vegetables, quinoa, salad and a very good sauce.

Pros: Cozy, Central

Cons: Not so much vegan choice

Well situated, good food - Edit

This small restaurant is situated just at the back of the Cathedral. Cakes and chocolate seem to be their strong point. We took one course meal at noon. I had a Munster fondue with ratte de Touquet potatoes, served with green salad (18 €). My wife took a vegetable paella, also served with green salad (8 €). The food and ambience among the guests were good. There was only one person to serve around 20 guests, and she was rather in a hurry to take order and fnish serving. It would have been nicer to have a friendlier service.
