This place was so good I ate there twice during my 1-week stay in Ghent. Meals were hearty, filling, and delicious. Desserts were perfect--not too sweet, so you could really taste all the ingredients. Very friendly staff, too.

A great vegan restaurant where you can try meals that are bowl based ie. miso soup, spaghetti bolognese and chilli con carne (but without the meat, of course). Fantastic spring roll. Very fresh with a lovely selectoin of vegan wine. Definitely come again.

Le Botaniste has an easy-going atmosphere. It is the perfect place for a relaxed lunch or meeting with friends. Very reasonable prices and healthy food! You can chose a table (individual or long shared table) in the beatiful house. The seats aren't that comfortable, but...More

Nice casual place to grab some vegetarian food. If not busy, most food is already prepared, so choose, pay, eat and leave. Quick. Assumed we arrived after a rush because we and the people behind us had to clear used dishes ourselves to sit down....More

Four out of nine options on the menu are vegetarian. And they are delicious! Finally some vegetables in a French restaurant. Tomatoes in a soup of cucumber, grilled eggplant with yoghurt and courgette ravioli’s in good portions. Interiour is modern, service is good.

We had the hummus dish, tried all the different types but didn't like any of them, they had no flavour or were really unbalanced, and the crackers that came with it were really terrible, store-bought for sure. Then we had the tajine, with such big...More
