We went to Cambrinus on our last night in Bruges.Up til then we had not been too impressed with all the tourism of Bruges.However at 18.45 we managed to get the last small table.Everything was brilliant,the service ,the amazing choices,the beers and the prices.If you like fish the fishy casserole was superb.We then wished we were staying longer

Luckily we had eaten here before and knew we would need to book for an early evening meal as we didn't want to risk being turned away - many others were. The food has various beers added during cooking to compliment the flavours of the hearty dishes. The Creme Brulee dessert was my favourite. The draught beers are in beautiful condition and the house beer had a particularly fine taste.

Cambrinus is probably best known for the staggering range of beers they offer and it is a very popular venue. At weekends you may struggle to get a seat and if you only want to drink you might find yourself unable to get a table at all. We booked and got a table in the far corner which was fairly quiet in what is a quite noisy bar/restaurant. Initial service was pretty good but after the first drinks and food had been served it took a downward turn because the staff were focussing on food rather than drink service. The food quality was mixed with superb steaks but very oily and unappetising fish. On a less busy day the performance may be better but the popularity makes quiet days rare perhaps. Not a bad venue, just a bit disappointing on the day.

Our first night in Brugge and we were tired and needed to feed a hungry 11-year-old and two adults. Husband enjoyed the beer sampler. I enjoyed a homemade seasonal asparagus soup. The salad with lardon and honeyed goat cheese was a delicious combination of flavors. All were satisfied, which is an amazing accomplishment.

Myself and The Beloved went in here as we wiled away our last hours in Bruges before heading back to Brussels Airport.
An amazing place.
The waitress placed what, essentially, amounted to a telephone directory in front of us.
They stock somewhere in region of 900 (!) different beers.
At this point I demonstrated my supreme Britsih ignorance, and ordered a litre of Jupiler.
For the unitiated, Jupiler is the Belgian equivalent of Fosters, though rather nicer, i.e. people ordering it get spat upon/frowned at/removed in bodily fashion and cast through the doors.
Well, I like Jupiler!
Waitress looked at me with the sort of scathing disdain reserved for such Philistines, and pointed towards babes in arms who had stronger stuff in their bottles.
Would recommend for any lover of beer.
