Good food, but on the expensive side - Edit

The food is very simple and yet quite tasty. The place itself is quite nice, it gives a very friendly vibe and the staff seemed to match it. However, everything is more expensive than you might expect, and the portion sizes seemed to vary a lot from dish to dish. Either way, it’s still a really nice place that’s worth checking out. I recommend you sit by the window with the flowers on a sunny day, it’s great!

Pros: Simple, yet tasty food, Nice atmosphere/vibe, Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive

Best vegan place I’ve ever been to! - Edit

Really nice flavours, you can tell that a lot of work has been done to decide on the recipes. The recipe change with the seasons which makes it different every time I come.

The desserts are really good too, great location, good service.

Pros: Amazing food

One of my favorites in London - Edit

Love this place!

Lots of delicious food and the menu changes seasonally.

It's all super healthy with most of it raw or not being cooked above a certain temperature but it doesn't feel 'too healthy' the chocolate smoothies feel like milkshakes and the desserts are very rich and indulgent.

The only downside is there are no bookings which sometimes puts me off going in peak times as I don't want to queue.

Pros: Healthy , Seasonal menu, The smoothies taste like milkshake

Cons: No bookings

A real gem with an inventive all-vegan menu - Edit

The Wild Food Cafe is a real gem.

The restaurant is small, with cosy decor and windows overlooking the beautiful Neal's Yard square.

The all-vegan menu is inventive with intriguing combinations and obscure but tantalising ingredients.

I opted for the ‘Queen of the Forest’ for my main which was absolutely incredible; tangy, sweet, pretty - like a tomato soup from another world! There were so many flavours and textures but they complimented each other perfectly.

To drink I ordered the orange hot chocolate which was adorned with maple glazed seeds and the best coco-whip I've had.

For dessert I opted for the walnut and date banana bread with almond vanilla custard, which was beautifully presented and a lovely flavour.

You simply must not miss Wild Food Cafe if you are heading to Covent Garden any time soon - it will blow your mind and your taste buds! I will be back without a doubt.

Pros: Inventive menu, Delicious food, Friendly, warm service

Nice to have the option of raw food, but portion sizes were a joke

One of my absolute favorites - Edit

These guys have the best Kale Cheesy Chips in the whole London city, and I am courageous enough to proclaim myself a kale crisps guru :) There was hardly a dish I didn’t like at Wild Food Cafe

Pros: Non-Cliche Flavor Combos, Fully Vegan, Have courses and retreats, and recipes on their we

Cons: Not too spacious

Delicious raw cakes and special drinks - Edit

I had the raw chocolate cake with caramel sauce recently and it was heavenly. Along with it, I tried the Medicinal Mushroom latte. They were both delicious and I left feeling good, not all sick from sugar overdose (all the sugars they use are unprocessed and natural).

I the past, my husband and I also had some outstanding salad there. I haven't tried anything else recently but I believe all the food there is really great quality. We also had these incredible smoothy/superfood drinks. They stand out in my memory.

Having said all that, it's not somewhere I would take my non-vegan, corporate-minded friends. It's a little hippyish. Has a great vibe but a bit too alternative for my personal taste. No complaints at all regarding the food though.

Pros: Delicious and uplifting, Healthy and natural , Superfoods and a lot of raw or wild ingredients

Cons: A little bit expensive but not for what it is, Busy

Well worth a visit! - Edit

Went for an early dinner with my dad the other weekend, we both had the falafel curry and it was DELICIOUS! My dad (however much he wanted to) could find no faults and absolutely loved it too. The whole vibe and energy of the place was so lovely too, will definitely return!

Lively place all day long - Edit

This place is located in a lively district and relatively full almost the whole day. I enjoyed a raw chocolate mousse and a grape drink for 13£ in the last warming sun shines falling through the big window. Although I find it quite expensive for the small portions you get, it was really tasty.

Pros: Friendly staff, Serve tap water

Cons: Expensive

over expensive health - Edit

I have looked at the menu and visited the restaurant several times but only ever visited once. It is always SO busy that it is difficult to get a seat although they do have a unique, useful reservation process using text messages. The only thing that I have tried is the chocolate cake which was really tasty but very rich and I'm glad that I shared it with my friend as it possibly could have become TOO rich. It was still really expensive too. Everything is so expensive.

Pros: yummy, healthy, organised

Cons: expensive, expensive, expensive

Gone Downhill - Edit

Over priced tiny portions of average food. You would have to spend about £30 per head just to be full up. We went out for sushi afterwards because we felt like we had only eaten a starter!

Staff came across as being a bit douchey and up themselves.

It never used to be like this. It’s a shame because we used to love going there. Will not be going back.

Pros: none

Cons: over priced , tiny portions , staff up themselves

Great atmosphere and delicious food - Edit

Had the crackers, mushrooms on toast and pad thai bites and impressed with all of them. The staff were lovely, atmosphere was great and location perfect.

The only downer was one of the managers or someone who has something to do with the restaurant working at our table on a laptop. Kind of changes the atmosphere a bit, but it wouldn't stop me going back.

Pros: All super healthy and delicious

Not impressed. - Edit

Visited for lunch.
We had the pad thai canapes, the scallops and the mushroom toast.
They were all yummy; however not excellent.
Portions were also rather small for what you pay.

We also had the banana bread and the cheesecake.
They were good.

While they explicitly recommend sharing by taking a couple of dishes per person, it would help so much if they would divide their menu into appetizers and mains. This would help knowing what size of portions we would get.

The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was pleasant.

Pros: location

Cons: small portions

Average - Edit

The Goddess bowl was fine, nothing particularly special about it, but a bit pricey. Beautiful location, but there are better vegan options in town elsewhere.

Pros: Location

Cons: Too Pricey

Vegetable food, not vegan - Edit

100% vegetarian, organic and gluten free food. But there was a drum made with leather (still with hair) hanging near us as an ornament. The lunch was not as nice as it should be. This is a vegetarian restaurant, for ethical reasons is not vegan.

Great Little Place - Edit

We found this place through happy cow and, whilst it's not easy to find, is well worth a visit. The food is great and based on the concept of sharing plates as a group. We had 3 mains and 2 sides between 2 of us and were too full up for desert. It's a quirky place with communal dining and no booking process so it can be hard to get a seat when they're busy but it is worth the wait.

Pros: Everything is now vegan., Really great ingredients cooked very well., Friendly and attentive staff.

Fabulous food - Edit

A very cosy place on the 1st floor, I went on my own, as it's a very popular place I had to wait for a table. I got seated with another lady, the staff was friendly and very helpful. The pizette was absolutely delicious, as was the caramel slice. I would definitely go back.

So inspiring - Edit

I love going out for vegan meals in London - and we are getting increasingly spoilt for choice, but the Wild Food Cafe is an absolute treat - they make food I can only dream of being able to recreate in my own kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I'm creative in the kitchen, but they take it to whole new extremes - introducing me to whole new flavours and textures on stunning plates of colourful food. I've been a few times now and taken friends, and each time, I've been wowed by a meal that is unlike any other, and in a restaurant that the employees are clearly proud and excited to be a part of - and so they should be! I can't wait to go back.

Pros: Healthy, delicious, creative vegan raw food, Friendly, caring, enthusiastic waiting staff, Can sit at the kitchen bar and watch them cook

Cons: Dingy toilets and need code to access, Not cheap - save for a special occasion, Shared tables

Neals yard's spirit food - Edit

As we walked into the neals yard we felt very welcomed by the hippie like community. The wild food cafe is set upstairs with wide open windows to the courtyard and a peaceful atmosphere. The food is prepared in a open kitchen where you can watch your food develop. We had both a raw and a cooked dish with the highly recommended wild rocket fuel drink. The food was delicious and made us feel really good. Menu changes with the seasons so you definitely need to come back to try more. Alongside your order you get to share a bottle of free filtered water at your table.

Pros: location , allergen free , peaceful

Cons: addicting
