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

I have been to Café des Spores three times and the first time it was truly an excellent meal. The place is cosy, staff is friendly and attentive and it was overall a really good experience. 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!)

The metal was very good if you like mushrooms. But the service could be better. We waited about 40 minutters between the starters and the main meal.

A restaurant full of mushrooms from starters to desserts. They are getting better and better with more food in the plate. It's always very good. Too bad their wine is so expensive. You can book with friends, colleagues, family or for a romantic evening. The place is very well decorated and the chef cooks at the entrance.

Avoid to come when you are hungry! Special plates with mushrooms. But not enough for a brave man and very long time before being served

We came to this Resto for a bachelorette dinner, the food was good albeit limited choices, portion sizes are small but ok of you don't want to have a huge meal and watch the calories :). The mushroom cheese cake which I thought might be going just too far - was quite delicious. Good place to try out. Service was... More
