Cuisine: Organic, Raw, Vegan
Price Point: Mains from £10-£30

With a strong ethos of wellbeing and holistic health running through each dish, Wild Food Café is bringing plant-based cuisine to Islington.

You might expect it to be a millennial paradise, but it’s wonderfully feminine. Dominated by soft pink chairs, it’s spacious and bright with mirrors at every turn and playful plants draping the walls. Their bar is covered in a fun geometric pattern and is admittedly #instagoals.

The menu is small, but you can tell an immense amount of thought has gone into each dish. Their carbonara uses courgette noodles whilst their wild green burger hosts a juicy mushroom patty covered in an onion and red pepper sauce. Or why not try their gluten-free, vegan pizzas that are just as good as their dairy counterpart!

For the drinks menu, a selection of their wine is organic and is sourced from small artisan growers. Some of the beer on offer is organic too and their cocktails only use the finest ingredients.

You must go here! The general ambience, decor and vibe was absolutely lovely to eat in, and the service was incredible! We arrived slightly early but this was not a problem.

For starters, we got the maki roll and sharing board - both utterly delicious. It was a thrill to see our pizza cooking in the authentic woodfired pizza oven, and that too was divine when we received it. I wouldn't be in a rush to order the courgetti again, but I think that is a reflection on courgetti as a whole, rather than the way it was cooked here. In fact, the tomatoes served with the courgetti were some of the best tomatoes I have ever tasted.

I really found myself buying into the whole ethos and culture of the Wild Food Cafe. We will be coming back soon and bringing more people with us!

Amazing!!! The food, service and the atmosphere were all fantastic, and the presentation was unbelievable - almost too good to eat!!
The highlight was definitely the pizza which is both gluten free and vegan - the best pizza I've had in years!!
The restaurant were very up to date with how First Table works which was great.
Really really recommend going, will most certainly be going back again!
Thanks so much for incorporating them in your deal First Table!!!

I was so impressed with this place! The decor is beautiful, light and airy - service was impeccable. Our waiter Ben was so friendly and knowledgeable on the dishes, plus he gave some great recommendations. We got smoothies to start - I love that they were naturally sweetened (no sugar!) super tasty and fresh. The food was amazing - I’m not vegan but love all food and what most impressed me about Wild Food Cafe was how fresh and flavoursome all the dishes were, every dish we had was just delicious and really interesting. The artichoke starter had some great textures and flavours, the polenta cakes with tomato and asparagus was such a simple dish but tasted amazing - the Courgette Parpadelle had such a great depth of flavour - and the desserts - YUM! The Pistachio Caramel was delicious, but the winner was definitely the Rhubarb Cheesecake. I got food envy when I saw the table next to us order the vegan pizza so I think I’ll definitely be back here soon!

What an experience! My boyfriend and I had so much fun eating here and also learned a lot, including a bunch of new types of food and what the difference between plant-based and vegan is. Our waitress was super kind and walked us through a couple parts of the menu. We split a squash app that was beautiful and then I got the Queen of Nature curry dish, which I felt was the "weirdest" thing on the menu and he got the pizza. The pizza was delicious with creamy "cheese" and fantastic tomato sauce that wasn't too acidic nor sweet. My dish was indeed very weird and untraditional in terms of flavors and ingredients, but it was so colorful and that was part of the fun to me. We split the rainbow cheesecake for dessert which was absolutely incredible. The atmosphere and decor in this place are also wonderful: bright, hip, fresh, and happy.

Wild food café really lived up to the hype of the new gluten free/vegan movement. We didn’t expect to be quite so impressed by the wonderful food and service. We started off with table olives which were some of the best olives I’ve had outside of the actual Mediterranean area. We were also very excited to tuck into flatbreads with pesto- the texture of the bread was crunchy yet soft in the centre and the pesto had just the perfect tangy profile to offset it. Yum! Absolutely delicious and this was just the starters. I ordered the wabi Sabi kale salad which was bursting with flavour. I wish I could have it on speed dial on any of my Netflix nights where I could easily envision eating a giant bowl of this in lieu of popcorn / nachos. We also had the creamy mushroom pizza which was such a good choice we didn’t judge ourselves for over ordering. The truffle flavour enhances the umami of the mushroom and the crunchiness of the baked kalettes on top of the pizza. If this is the reality of gluten free/ vegan / eco guilt free food feels like in such a gorgeous setting with amazing table service looks like - sign me up for a decade long subscription subject to extension. Thank you wild food café!

I have had a great time at Wild Food Cafe. The service is EXCELLENT. Our waitress was very friendly and was able to answer all our questions. The space is beautiful. We loved the food as well. We had the kale crisps, banana bread and falafel. We found the drinks were lacking a bit of punch and strong flavours for being priced between 6 to 8 pounds.

Always a good reception at Wild Food.
Light airy atmosphere and the water is second to none.
The menu is not long, they favour quality over quantity.
We had three courses and each was well presented and enjoyable.

Dined here on Friday night, we were running slightly late - I called and it was not a problem.
The restaurant is very fresh and clean looking, great décor and use of foliage. Staff were very friendly and attentive - the menu is small, we ordered a started to share, harissa courgette, and the Italian pizza and courgette salad to share, which was all very flavoursome. Also the rainbow cheese cake - what a beautiful dish and tasted fabulous.
Everything was perfect, but quite expensive ...

The staff were lovely and made us feel very welcome. The restaurant itself was gorgeous- beautiful pink, greens and white hues surrounded by plants which was just beautiful. We ordered the courgette tagliatelle and a mushroom pizza. The courgette pasta was nice but a little expensive.
