#122 Another fabulous dinner at Réliva, Bruges (5)

Restaurant review #122 – Restaurant Réliva is one of the few places in Bruges that standardly offers a vegan menu. It is not an all vegan restaurant, but since the start (2012) they have served vegan dishes. We’ve been here several times over the years, and it is always a delight to go dining here. Previous reviews of Réliva on The Bruges Vegan are here. The interior has changed a bit over the years, and there’s also a large terrace in the back. We’ve never had the chance to dine on the terrace, as it was always cold or rainy when we visited. Definitely will try to visit on a nice Summer evening in the coming months, so we can enjoy the terrace! This review is from our last visit, a couple of weeks ago (Spring 2017). The vegan menu is still 35€ (starter, main dish and dessert). When ordering a la carte it is a bit more expensive (see prices listed, total of 43€ for 3 courses). For starters we had the radish, beet, cashew …

#67 Lovely vegan dinner at Réliva, Bruges (4) *****

Restaurant review #67 – Restaurant Réliva is one of our favourite places to go dining out in Bruges. It is not an all vegan restaurant, but one of the few places in Bruges where there’s standardly a vegan menu available. We have been here several times over the years, which is quite often actually, since it only opened in 2012! I have already written three reviews of restaurant Réliva. You can find those reviews, with many more photos of the food, the interior, and also the terrace at the back here. This review is from a visit in February 2016, when we were there with friends. There is a 3 course vegan menu (35€) or you can choose from two vegan starters and three vegan main courses. We were glad to see the menu had changed since our last visits, and were eager to try out the new dishes! For drinks I had a fresh vegetable juice 6€. Tonic was 2,50€. Our friends had a bottle of bio-vegan rosé, Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo (25€). Good to see they have vegan labelled wine available, one …

#35 Our most recent visits to restaurant Réliva (3), Bruges *****

Restaurant review #35 – Restaurant Réliva is one of the few restaurants in Bruges with vegan dishes standardly available. It is not a vegan restaurant, but there’s always a choice of two vegan main dishes and one whole vegan menu (35€ without drinks). We already blogged about our visits to Réliva when we first visited it at the end of 2013 here and our visit in 2014 here. (see edit below) Since then, we have dined four times at restaurant Réliva, on all but one occasion accompanied by friends or family. As restaurant Réliva also serves non-vegan menus, it is the ideal place to go to when you are in mixed company (with omnis). Here are some photos of what we had: You are always welcomed with a small appetizer, for example spicy hummus and kale soup, or on another occasion parsnip & kale soup and a mini spring roll. They now also explicitly state the bread to be vegan, which was sometimes overlooked in the beginning days. The vegan appetizer was either pumpkin soup or grilled sweet cauliflower …

#9 Restaurant Réliva (2), Bruges ****

Restaurant review #9 – Restaurant Réliva is – so far as we know – the only restaurant in Bruges which has a vegan 3-course menu standardly available. It is not a vegan restaurant, but vegan is always on offer, and besides the 3-course vegan menu, there is sometimes also another vegan suggestion. We already visited Réliva in the Summer of 2013 (see our previous review here). And we liked it! (see edit below) We recently went again for lunch (February 2014). We were there first, but the place soon filled up and was nearly full for lunch. So we suggest you definitely make a reservation (we overheard the waitress telling some other people it was already fully booked for dinner that night). Both of the main courses of the ‘veggie’ menu were vegan so we could each have something different. We got a little appetizer of mushroom creme and basil with our drinks. And some bread and olive oil. This was our 3-course menu (35€): Pumpkin chestnut soup (organic) with some brandy and liquorice * Lasagne …
