Authentic bierbrasserie

Good food, good prices, great beer and an uptempo vibe. We enjoyed the hurly burly atmosphere, the extensive beer and food menu.

This was our 3rd visit to Cambrinus; our first two visits during the past year were really good. We'd reserved a table and arrived exactly on time, good job as the place was overflowing, as usual. Our menus arrived quite promptly and the drinks waitress sorted us out without too much delay. However, it then took ages for someone to... More

Stopped her for dinner based on recommendations from a local. It was a great recommendation. The suggestion was to go in and ask for a reservation for 30 mins from now but they were able to take us right away. We had a 3 course meal which included the Flesmish stew - a must have. Great selections of beers to... More

This restaurant is all about the beer -- the food is typical, but, there beer is extensive. As an example, the menu had a couple of pages for food and probably five times as many for beer!

We visited 30th Sept and managed to get a table for dinner. The meatballs and mash was really good and the steak with garlic sauce was massive! Really great quality, the staff were friendly and the beer tasting set was good value. Overall I would go back again it's expensive compared to other cities but for bruges it's reasonable.

This brasserie had an awesome bar as well as tables and booths for dining. The glass door refrigerators behind the bar displayed over 400 types of beers. Belgium is known for beer, as well as chocolates. This place had any Belgian beer you may have heard of. We also had a charcuterie plate appetizer that was unusually large...and good. Try... More

We stopped here by chance for a late lunch. The place was packed. It looks like an upscale pub. They have a selection of beers on tap and a much larger selection in bottles, Total of 400! There is a description of each beer in French and English on the menu which helps in making the decision. I had a... More

This place is a must in Brugge, thus plan for it - it gets packed very quickly. We had seat next to the bar and the street. We were there for lunch and the place was hopping. Impressive beer list to say the least and lots of choices on the menu. Our server was very good, and in a packed... More

We go here anytime we visit Bruges and it has been consistent in terms of good food and service. It does get very, very busy so try to reserve a table. The staff do their best during busy periods and are generally efficient and friendly. As for the choice of beers. Well, it's beer heaven!
