Very unusual – specializes in mushrooms. Mushrooms with everything. The starter; a combination of pholiote –refers to a genus of mushroom so not very specific - and mussels. The main course was a well cooked piece of beef hidden under “horn of plenty” (black chanterelle, black trumpet), in French trompette de la mort (trumpets of death – fortunately not toxic)... More

If you feel like spending the night tasting different kinds of dishes prepared with excellent quality off selected mushrooms, then this is your kind of place. Don't worry, they also serve meat and accompaniments, not just mushrooms. The chef knows very well how to handle his fungi and succeeds in making this a full experience. Ask for wine suggestions or... More

We had a three course vegan meal which were so well balanced and refined - it was simply unforgettable. Not to mention our fantastic red wine and their very innovative desserts. I particularly recommend the chocolate mousse! The menu is small but I give them credits for having a vegan option. Service was a little slow but it was made... More

Restaurant is tiny, so it's best for couples or small groups of 4 people. Would not recommend for larger groups since can be quite crowded. Atmosphere is casual and intimate with wooden tables, deemed lights and simple décor. Menu is concentrated around mushrooms (different variety) and has on offer choice from 3 starters, 3 mains and deserts, as well as... More

A tiny gem in Brussels! Cafe fed spores offers a beautiful menu of mushroom dishes; everything is well cooked and well served. Delicious plates and a very reasonable price. The service could be slightly better, but we are not in a Michelin starred place :-) so, overall, I would rate 4stars but it bugs me that such place is so... More

Had an absolutely fabulous dinner here with work colleagues. As the name implies it's a specialist restaurant in mushrooms. Choice of 3 starters, 3 mains a cheese course and 2 puddings, you could have any combination of these and all courses (including pudding!) had mushrooms as the main event. The open kitchen was smoothly run and added to the ambience.... More

I went to Café des Spores with my parents and my boyfriend as my mum loves mushrooms and I wanted to offer her a nice dinner. We had one formula entrée+main dish, three main dish+dessert, and a bottle of Cava, half liter of water, and I paid a bit more than 150€. Although the food was tasty, we were all... More

Memorable evening (and food). Each dish features a different type of mushroom and they were all incredibly delicious. Great atmosphere and drinks.

It is not only about mushrooms. The atmosphere and the creativity of the cuisine make it worth a visit. The restaurant offers partly set menus, where one can combine a choice of 2-3 starters, mains, cheese and deserts in different ways for set price. For example, starter, main and cheese. You get a complimentary little starter while you wait for... More

I love mushrooms I thus really enjoyed the meal. We have a menu alongs the season and the market therefore it changes all the time. It is an open kitchen you can see what the chefs is preparing.. really nice! The only negative point is the quantities.. there are quite small. My boyfriend eats a lot and he was still... More
