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.
