Expert review of Soul

Laidback, family run, organic restaurant.

Soul provides the perfect antidote to all the butter and cream used in traditional Belgian restaurants and is a lifesaver for vegans/veggies in this meat-loving town. Run by Finnish sisters Linda and Nina Rosas, this intimate 8-table restaurant serves delicious additive- and preservative-free vegetarian meals.

Food and drink: 

They prepare a new ‘mood menu’ every week designed to stimulate mind, body or soul. Safe to say it’ll include at least one of the following: quinoa, green lentils, cottage cheese and seeds. The chickpea curry looked good, as did the spinach burger.

Ambience: 

The restaurant is tiny and features exposed brick walls, bare light bulbs hanging from the ceiling, a black-and-white mosaic-tiled floor and a small wooden bar running along the back wall. Its size makes private conversations a little tricky, so I’d visit for lunch instead of a romantic dinner.

Service: 

The waitresses are friendly and happy to explain the various benefits of the health foods.

Location: 

Tucked away on a quiet street in the Marolles district.

Price advice: 

Mains range from 15 euros to 19 euros, but I recommend trying the two-course ‘detox’ or ‘antioxidant’ menus, which cost 20—28 euros.
