Nice food, nice service & nice atmosphere

Not many vegetarian restraurants in Brussels but the ones they have or at least this one is very good. The menu has a good mix of vegetarian/non-vegetarian dishes so you can go there with non-vegetarian friends. The only negative aspect I have to mention is that I found it a bit loud.

I ordered Le Melazane (Grilled aubergines with thyme, dill, apples, chicory, avocado, dried fruits, roasted goat cheese with maple syrup, beetroot, pumpkin mash.), it was good, but not very different from the typical salade de chèvre (goat salad) you can find everywhere in Brussels. The service was good and fast, but at the end we were charged for the water... More

Great place to try some new vegetarian and vegan options, the atmosphere is great but the portions could be a bit more generous.

Great food, extremely fresh and lovely tastes, we had fish based dishes (not the vegetarian/vegan). They were all exciting and extraordinary mixtures of taste and texture. The waitress was excellent, nut sure how she could cope alone with all the tables, but she was first class. The interior is very cosy and warm. Definitely recommended if you visit Brussels.

Soul offers a several vegetarian and vegan options as well as a delicious and affordable variety of wines. (also per glass) We ordered the vegan lentil burger (with sweet... More

A really nice place with really nice staff and awesome food. This place is ideal for a group with mostly vegetarians but some that are not as there is a nice selection for both. I had a fantastic veil with rice and a lovely salad. My portion was a little small but well worth it.

You come to this small place in a dark side street to get away from it all and refill body and soul with a meal made with passion and carefully chosen ingredients. A bit noisy when full but otherwise very pleasant

I realised on reading the menu this is not actually a vegetarian restaurant. Anyway the food was quite good, but the stone floor made the place incredibly loud. In the toilets it was impossible for anybody with my eyesight to actually see anything. The menu had some good things, but the service could have been much quicker. I am not... More
