#192 Vegan cheese platter and homemade croquettes at Récollets, Antwerp

restaurant review #192 – Récollets is a new vegan restaurant in Antwerp (est. September 2017). It is in the city center, just a 5 minute walk from the Cathedral. (Note: see update below)

Récollets has a very nice variety on the menu, and lots of options to choose from. It was difficult to make a decision! The wines were also said to be vegan.

We choose the cheese platter (19€, came with bread on the side) and the cheeze croquettes (12€), with additional fries on the side (2€). The vegan cheeses are from Serotonina, a Polish company. The cheeses can also be bought at Récollets, but onfortunately we still had a show to go to that evening (Paul Simon’s farewell tour). And it was a very hot day, and we didn’t have any cooler in the car neither.

For dessert we shared a coupe brésilienne (7,50€). It was ages since I had eaten a coupe brésilienne at a restaurant (well, propably since going vegan)! The icecream is homemade by Récollets. Definitely one of the best we have ever eaten!

The interior is very nice. Loved the toilets and the vintage photos to indicate the ladies and gents.
The restaurant itself is accessible, but there is no accessible toilet. Toilets were clean, and nicely decorated, with paper towels to dry one’s hands.

Récollets is in a quite busy street. There is a terrace in front of the restaurant (on street level), and traffic and trams are passing very close by.
Service was friendly and swift.
