The Cambrinus is a superb restaurant/bar in the heart of the beautiful city of Bruges. It is a beer connoiseurs delight, with no less than 400 different brands on offer, all of which are very reasonably priced. The food is excellent too, and there's plenty on the menu to suit all tastes. On top of that the service is first... More

Had an ok lunch here. I had lasagne but have had a lot better, my friend had a Caprese salad which she really enjoyed. We paid more for a half litre of house wine here than anywhere else the whole weekend and it wasn't very good. The service was fairly slow but the restaurant was pretty busy. Would not agree... More

The biggest selection of beers in Bruges along with great food. You definately need to book a table to be sure to get in. We have visited many times over the years and have always loved the atmosphere and found staff so helpfull though very busy.

You must order the croquettes they are best I have had. The Flemish stew was also delicious. This place was really busy on the weekend so I would recommend booking. There is a massive selection of beers on offer. We got the taster but they were very average beers in my opinion. Some of the servers were lovely and other... More

First of all, the beer selection here is incredible and daunting. You are provided with a thick book of possible brews and they are the finest beers in the world. The food was really good--the frites are awesome. The only negative was the service, which was slow and inattentive but that's true in all of Europe.

This place is meant to enjoy a good meal accompanied by good beer. There are several reasons why this does not work out well at Cambrinus. 1) The place is too full. Masses of people get in, without reservation, in the hope to be lucky. They're not, and people that try to eat their dinner in this pressure cooker have... More

The place was rammed when we visited and we had to wait for about 30 minutes to eat. Which meant time to sit at the bar and have a couple of drinks. The beer 'menu' is a vast telephone directory of mostly bottled beers (around 400) with some on tap. The staff were a little uninterested in serving anyone but... More

It took us three nights to get a table here. It was our final night and I wish we'd gone elsewhere. Recommended to us by others on our tour, but it didn't do it for us. Good atmosphere though. Th beer list advertises over 400 Belgian beers, but we were given just a couple of minutes to make our minds... More

We made a booking here following a recommendation, but we're sorely disappointed with service, atmosphere and food. It took over 20 minutes to even order a drink despite the many waitresses. Starters served with no plates, table of 5 given 4 water glasses, vegetarian option dismal. No one came to check on our meal or to ask if we would... More

A lively and friendly pub style restaurant that offers 400 different beers and hearty portions of well cooked traditional Belgian food. I eat there a couple of times every time I go to Bruges and am never disappointed. Always packed out, so make sure to book ahead.
