#100 Vegan fine dining at Vanilla Black, London (UK)

Restaurant review #100 – Reminder – GIVEAWAY to celebrate 100 restaurant reviews & 3 years The Bruges Vegan.
Vanilla Black is a vegetarian restaurant in city center of London, near the Royal Courts of Justice. It is located in a small quiet alley. It is one of the more expensive vegetarian restaurants in London, and offers fine gastronomical dining.

We telephoned to make a reservation for the same evening and that was no problem, although we had to be early (6PM all later hours were fully booked).

We received a vegan menu card and also a vegan wine list. Nice! We ordered the 3 course vegan menu and could each choose different meals, even nicer! The 3 course dinner was £41,50.
We started with a glass of champagne (drapier, £9,75). Water was £3,95, glass of wine was £9,75 (quite expensive drinks!).
Here’s what we had for dinner. It was too much too take notes of all the ingredients, but every dish was very nice.

Service was also very swift and friendly. Toilets downstairs were clean, although a bit unorderly.
We had a lovely evening!
Only downside was the transportation to our hotel afterwards. We had asked the staff to call a taxi (as vanilla Black is located in a backside alley) and after first telling us it would be at least 20-25 minutes, then suddenly a driver did show up. It turned out to be a ‘private taxi’, so we paid way more than an official cab. Felt like a classic tourist trap. That we fell for. So that was a bit of a bummer.
