Le Botaniste, Ghent

Le Botaniste is a small restaurant that serves only vegetable-based organic dishes. It’s located on a side street close to the canal. The service is nothing to write home about, it’s bascially self-service, but the staff are helpful and friendly. What I rather like about this place is that despite the fact that it’s all organic and vegetarian, it does not have the look and feel of a tree-huggers’ hangout. It’s just a normal restaurant where you can get decent, reasonably priced food without meat.
