Tasty! - Edit

Would definitely recommend this place! The seitan was to die for! As was the spicy filled jalapeños and the fried cauliflower drumsticks!

Pros: One of the biggest vegan menus we have seen, Tasty and spicy, Can book a table

Delicious vegan food; very friendly service - Edit

Lovely, colourful, restaurant very near the old harbour in Bangor. An extensive, completely vegan menu. Lots of different options but with a particular focus on diner - shakes & burgers - type cuisine. Service was very friendly and helpful.

Pros: The food, The service, The decour

We have yet to be disappointed by this amazing place. We’ve gone back dozens of times, and everything has been absolutely perfect every time.

If you go before 3 PM, don’t leave without trying the V-BLT. Mindblowing.

Pros: All Vegan, Very Friendly Staff, Massive choice of food and coffee

Cons: Not open 24/7

Best vegan eatery in North Wales! - Edit

I just LOVE this place. I have been a number of times and it has not disappointed yet.
Whenever I have friends or family over or we are going out for an occasion we always come to Voltaire. My non-vegan friends now request this place for their birthday meal they love it so much.

I would love to be able to recommend one dish from their menu, but it's just sooo good you have to try it all! One of my favourites to have is one of their sharing platters as you get a variety of lovely vegan-ness to try. Staff are lovely and friendly. The atmosphere is good and service is perfect.

A must visit if you're in the Bangor/Gwynedd area.

Lovely puddings and friendly service - Edit

Really nice to have a good vegan restaurant in North Wales. It was very busy for a cold February midweek evening and hence the service was a bit patchy. The menu is extensive and does cater for non vegans to a large extent with a huge selection of burgers and meaty type dishes. Highlights for me were the cauliflower buffalo wings, crispy tofu and the puddings.

Best in Bangor - Edit

Been here a couple of times now and it gets better each time. Groovy music, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff. Great selection of food, everything is fresh and interesting. Quite dramatic burgers. Best falafel in town. Very popular so you may want to reserve a table as I was almost turned away on a Tuesday night as they were almost fully booked. This is a real gem of a place in North Wales. Worth going out of your way for.

Pros: 100 percent vegan, varied menu

Cons: Can be booked solid in evenings

Voltaire Vegan, Bangor, Wales - Edit

In my opinion this is the best Vegan restaurant in the UK, although The Bohemian in Newcastle upon Tyne comes a close second.

Always delicious - Edit

I've been to Voltaire many times now (including on their very first opening night) and have always had a delicious meal there. I've had two Xmas meals there which were really yummy. Portion sizes are large and you get your moneys worth.

I think the best thing I've had from there was their Indian sharing platter. The Italian burger is my favourite. Their desserts are also great.

Pros: Tasty food , Friendly staff and relaxed vibe , Good value

A Great Find - Edit

My first experience of using the Happy Cow App for a Vegan restaurant and I find Voltaire just half an hour away from my Welsh camping spot. Could not be happier.
As the only Vegan in my family of 4, my husband and kids were a bit sceptical but we all really enjoyed our meals. The kids were totally won over by their deserts too - so delicious. My son and husband thought their 'ice cream' was better than the sort they normally eat.

Pros: Large choice, friendly staff, nice surroundings

Cons: pricey soft drinks, small - consider booking

excellent meal - Edit

We booked a table and were glad we did, this is a snug little place and lots of people got turned away during the time we were eating. There is a lot of food to choose from here and a lot of it is geared around sharing platters. I had a lovely dish which had tofu, samphire and potatos and it was delicious.
Regretted not trying the seagull sundae which was an icecream sundae with fries in it! But the american brownie platter to share was immense and very satisfying!

Pros: excellent food, friendly helpful staff, good location

Cons: no parking at restaurant, need to book

Seriously fabulous - Edit

If you're anywhere in North Wales, it's worth getting to this great restaurant. 100% vegan - I was a bit overwhelmed with such a wonderful choice of menu. Best to book. They are very popular.

Fabulous decor and yummy food - Edit

We had a very warm welcome at this clearly popular place. Apparently you can now get dishes delivered too, though eating there is a lovely experience in itself. Lovely colours and books and crannies. The fairy light snug would be particularly good for a group.
As for the food, my burger was yummy as was my mum's soup and chocolate brownie. So good to all be vegan. Looks like pebbly is gluten free too.

Pros: All vegan and delicious , Lovely atmosphere

Cons: It's no where near where I live

Friendly service, delicious vegan food - Edit

Lovely little vegan restaurant with a friendly vibe. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the food was amazing! The mushrooms in creamy (vegan) white wine sauce with garlic bread is possibly the most delicious food I've eaten since going vegan several years ago. I had a Mexican burger for main course, which filled me up nicely without leaving me feeling too stuffed. There were loads of other dishes we wanted to try, so a good reason to visit Bangor again another time!

Pros: Wide choice of food, Delicious vegan food, Friendly staff

Cons: It's a bit small, so book ahead

Only vegan café/restaurant in Wales - Edit

Voltaire is the only fully vegan café and restaurant in Wales. It is located near the pier and offers sweet and savoury dishes and drinks. The space itself is very cosy, warm and inviting. The staff is super friendly and helpful and the prices are moderate. I ordered a tortilla wrap w/ tomatoes, spring onions and vegan cheese, a non-alcoholic Mojito and then later a Soy latte and fruit crumble, all for 14 pounds. Everything was delicious, especially the fruit crumble that came w/ vegan vanilla ice cream. The only low point was the service is a little slow at times: When I asked for the menu again they forgot me as well as my second order, which is not very professional. Overall, I really enjoyed my time there and hope that Voltaire will remain in the future.

Pros: Vegan only & delicious, Friendly & helpful staff, Cosy and warm space

Cons: Slow service

altogether beautiful! - Edit

I'm new to becoming a vegetarian and very close to becoming a vegan. Myself, my husband and son ate here last night and we were so impressed with the very friendly staff, amazing tasty food and just the overall experience of eating here! We are going back tonight! The 9 bean chilli is gorgeous and the Shanghai noodle dish delicious too! And the fudge cake.. Best you'll ever taste! I would recommend everyone to eat here, vegan/veggie or not!

Pros: everything

Cons: none

Literally my favourite restaurant on Earth! - Edit

I absolutely adore Voltaire, and visit more often than I care to admit! The food gets better and better with each visit, with more items being added to the menu all the time.
The food is always of a phenomenal standard, in addition to Voltaire having a lovely atmosphere with the nicest staff.
The chocolate fudge cake is the best damn cake you'll come across! You'd be mad to pass through North Wales and not stop by.

Pros: Phenomenal menu, best cake ever, friendly staff

Cons: Seriously. None.

Slow and steady wins the race! - Edit

We booked a table earlier in the day for 8pm as we wanted to avoid disappointment. One of the owners thought it would be a quiet night but when we arrived they had picked up quiet a few walk-ins and there was a nice atmosphere.

We had to wait a little while for menus and the food to arrive but we presume that they haven't quite found their tempo yet as they've only been open four months.

The food was well presented (we've uploaded a picture). Our starter was the cauliflower and mushroom, it was a good vegan equivalent of the battered balls you get at a chinese takeaway with a tasty szechuan sauce. We then had the burrito which comes out on a big wooden board with lots of sides and the "Big badaboom" burger. They were both extremely delicious and tasted very fresh. The burger patties had a consistency very similar to ground beef. We were offered a good selection of sauces for dipping.

We finished off with the chocolate fudge cake based on the review we read on here. The ginger cake sounded really good and in hindsight we probably should have tried both but we were feeling pretty full!

The owners were really friendly and it was really good to see them doing so well, it was quite inspiring. It's great to eat in a fully vegan restaurant worry free.

Pros: Generous Portions, Well presented, Fully vegan!

Cons: Not the fastest service in the world but well wort

Great vegan food in Bangor, North Wales. - Edit

This vegan restaurant serves a great choice of food which is all cooked and served beautifully.If you are visiting this area,it is well worth a visit, they are open from 12 noon to 10.30pm but between 3pm and 5pm only afternooon tea/cakes are served and are closed Sundays and Mondays. The food is both healthy and tasty and will appeal to both health conscious vegans and those who like to enjoy good food knowing they have caused no harm to either animals or the environment. The chocolate fudge cake with ice cream is wonderful!

Pros: Excellent food choice, Good value and good portions., Very friendly proprietors

Cons: none
