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

All except the wines include mushroom. And all excellent dishes. Each day a menu of 3 appetizers, 3 main courses and 3 desserts is proposed. You can make your combination accordingly to your appetite, or all 3, or 3 or only one item. The dishes are nicely presented, and with the really personalised service, the waiters explain the dishes ingredients.... More

The second time it was not as good, staff still superbe but food not to same level. This happens often of course as expectations... More

Go here for an evening enshrouded in mushrooms like you'll never have anywhere else. (But steer clear of the organic, unpreserved wine unless you like your wine to taste like it's been corked!)
