This is a great place in very nice quiet street in the heart of the city center with a nice terrace. Very friendly personnel who are very helpful in helping us finding the right dishes. The smoothies are wonderful and freshly made off course. The 'pasta' was exquisite and convinced me as genuine meat eater that you can have a... More

I'm vegan. I eat vegan. I think more people should. It's places like this that bum me out and make me feel bad for non-vegans trying to eat veg. It was pretty overpriced, but the food was nice. I had a soup with crackers for 8 euro. I know that organic food isn't cheap, but 8 euro felt a bit... More

I recently visited eten vol leven during the themed dinner nights: a menu cost 39 eur! first of all, I would like to point out that I'm neither vegan or vegetarian, but I always like to try out new things and a healthy balanced and flavoursome diet is primordial for me. The food was ok, but since everything was raw,... More

First of all, the drinks were really good, wide variety, very tasty and fair in price. However the food is a very overpriced in my opinion for what you get and it also took a long time before we got it (which is surprising since they don't cook it, it's all raw). I had a pasta which was just raw... More

I had an amazing day at Eten Vol Leven, with great hosting by Tom, who explained thoroughly his menu and how he produces his food. As I spent the day touring the museums, he also offered his advice on the best ones to suit my requirements. I had breakfast and lunch and left a very happy customer and will return... More

Every time I have been travelling and have explored raw food restos around Europe I am happy to return to Etenvolleven for the constant high quality, extraordinary taste balances and beautiful colours and presentation. Tom and Sarah are really making efforts to get it right.

Be surprised by creative combinations of delicious food. The owners are really friendly and take all the time to explain whatever you want to know or recommend if you can't chose from all the yummy choices! I loved every single bite from all I had and am sure that I'll go back many times; the menu varies day to day... More

Eten Vol Leven give us an incredible experience! We became vegans at beginning of this year and when we are traveling around we always looking for a vegan place for eating. So, when we stop in Antwerp, we choose to go at Eten Vol Leven. Guess what, "pizza", "pasta" or desserts... delicious. The entire team deserves all compliments and support.... More

I am lucky to live near Belgium's very first raw foods restaurant and every time I go I enjoy every bite, every sip, every crumble! Make sure to try their cheesecake, you will have found a new favourite dessert!
