Owner description: Café Rose Red is a cheery café that is full of character. It is located in the heart of Bruges, a stone's throw from the market. A quiet side street takes you away from the tourist route and spirits you away into an authentic jewel in the town centre of Bruges. Our speciality is Trappist beer; hence we offer all the trappist beers that are recommended all over the world. Come savour this delectable nectar inside the café or on our pleasant terrace.

“Pretty much what everyone else has said...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

A great beer bar, on a quiet back street behind Cambrinus (which although was recommended to us looked very touristy and not as atmospheric), this was a great little place to settle down for a couple of hours in the snug bar area and savour a few beers. The selection was great, and the barmaid made some fantastic recommendations, she was clearly very knowledgeable and gave us some great advice on dinner options also.

We arrived just after lunchtime when it was fairly quiet, but it was jammed within the hour. The service was good, glasses never empty for long, and the bar snacks tasty. Not much in the way of proper meals, but it worked perfectly.

Definitely one to visit in Bruges!

“Very good beer place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

very knowledgeable staff and an excellent beer list. The prices are a little steep especially some of the bottles but still worth a visit.

“Great relaxing spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

We ended up in Cafe Rose Red after getting caught out in a rain storm and were warmly welcomed by the barmaid. There was no room to sit in the main bar area (4 of us) so we were asked if we'd like to sit next door, in the breakfast room, at the large breakfast table. This was perfect as kind of like a private room as no-one ended up joining us and the bar staff were just as attentive. We enjoyed several beers from their extensive beer list, including the tasting 'tray' (4 glasses). Good selection of bar snacks (which we didn't have) but no meals. Really great venue for a relaxing afternoon spent tasting amazing beers.

“The top spot for beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I went to Le Trappiste and Cambrinus, and this was definitely a horse head infront of both of them. Dead quiet street right of the market square. Excellent service, excellent selection on both tap and bottle. Nice finger food if you're hungry. One of the nicest pubs I've been to.
