It is really unbelievable that each course in the menu includes some kinds of mushroom, yes beginning from starter lasting until the dessert each of which is really delicious and elegant. Please remember to secure your reservation which is alsı doable over the web site...and keep in mind that the seating capacity is very limited. A must have experience which you will never regret! PS: menu is being updated regularly and there is no a la carte menu.More

We were looking for somewhere nice to have dinner in Brussels on a Saturday evening & this place stood out. We love mushrooms & were intrigued by the fact that every course incorporated them. We loved the decor & layout of the restaurant & enjoyed...being sat upstairs so we could watch the food being prepared below. The starters & the mains were lovely. The pork & shitake main was stunning. We had a desert to share, which was a mint creme brûlée with cacao crumb which was good except the mushrooms with it had an odd texture. If we find ourselves in Brussels again we will definitely be back. The service & atmosphere was very laid back.More

We went to this place due to the novelty that EVERY dish (including desert) includes some type of mushroom. This is definitely a bit off the beaten path and not touristy, but loved the menu and the staff. We would definitely recommend if you are...a foody.More

I really enjoyed the originality to include various types of mushrooms in all dishes. Possibility to go for different combo (starter/main/deserts).

We took over friends visiting Brussels there. Enjoyed our meal and service. Mushrooms in a dessert can work too!

As you would imagine from the name of the restaurant all the courses here introduce a wild variety of mushrooms in each dish, even up to the desserts which are very special! The ingenuity and imaginative pallet of the chef is exciting and extraordinarily good...value for money. the decor is modest yet very charming and sets a lovely friendly atmosphere. the staff are delightful and explained in english, the origin and the ingredients, cooking techniques of each course before we eat it. this place is an experience I highly recommend trying if you want to celebrate something or interested in gastronomy!More

Nicolas Scheidt is no workaday chef. The plucky Alsatian has done practically everything a French chef SHOULDN'T do: he worked for top British—that's rosbief, to you—restaurants after completing his training; he opened a successful bistro in Paris—and then sold it; and then he committed the...unspeakable crime of moving to Belgium. Quel dommage! But, in Brussels, he has found both a discerning public and much praise—some of his pop-up projects have sold out months in advance. This, his original Brussels restaurant, has the quirky eccentricity that rather explains his natural appeal in the land of comic strip surrealism, which also has high standards when it comes to food. A restaurant posited around the glory of the mushroom in all its glory, Café des Spores has been packing them in ever since its debut in this hipster neighbourhood of Brussels some time ago. If you love your chanterelles, Chantal, this is the place to head. With a small menu curated by the chef based on market-fresh produce, this is not dining defined by a set menu, but rather a fungus-specific enclave assembled by the guy who invented the "neo bistro" long before Septime in Paris gained its Michelin star. Book well in advance. Because there's not mushroom inside. Boom, boom!More

The moment we walked into this restaurant We knew we were into a winner. The well thought out black and natural interior mimicking the colouring of the mushroom itself. Then there was the really lovely and friendly service and (this is one of my most...loved things when eating out) a simple and effective menu - to choose from 3 starters, 3 mains, 1 cheese (the pecorino... and boy was it good!!) and 2 desserts. Excellent wines available by the glass too. Try it you won’t regret it.More
