The Soul Café & Restaurant is the brainchild of chef Olivier Vati and his partner, Helen Payne. Olivier is originally from the French Caribbean paradise of Guadeloupe, while Helen is from Norfolk – a combination of cultures that is perfectly reflected in the fusion cuisine that is the Soul Café & Restaurant’s trademark.

The couple met in London and after period of travelling the world, including a spell living and working in South Africa, they have settled with their two beautiful boys, Theo and Kofi, they have returned to Norfolk to realise their long-held dream of owning and running their own restaurant.

“‘Food has always been my passion. It is simple. I love to cook, to eat and to know that people enjoy my food. I am from the beautiful French-Caribbean island of Guadeloupe, but I adore to travel and have lived more than half my life in various European countries and South Africa. You may notice the influences of these cuisines in my food… Join us and enjoy!”
