“happening place. local colour. good food . great selection of beers”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

The place was packed. Well-run and highly efficient. Ate the the Flanders stew , which was filling and delicious. Not a place for romantic trysts but a good place to soak up local atmosphere . The beer menu is a very thick book!!! Try a sharing sampler of four beers. 1 fruit . 1 dark 1 blonde 1 wheat . Full of local colour. If you want a table book early.

“Fantastic little place with hundreds of beer to sample”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Very, very busy we stumbled upon this place for a drink on a Friday evening and although it was packed we managed to sample a few beers at the bar. We returned the following afternoon for an hour and the food smelt amazing, wish we had eaten here now too! Great buzzy atmosphere, it's not a romantic stop in but worth it all the same.

“Great atmosphere with enjoyable food”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

I was led to this restaurant by our group's guide, who's an expert with everything that has to do with Belgian beer. This place was no disappointment: We had a table of ~20 people, and the waitresses worked hard and were really nice. A huge variety of beer types and brand for reasonable prices. I took an onion soup and a rabbit dish (cooked with beer). Both were great and not so expensive. We had great time and I'm sure that when I'm back in Bruges I will pay this place another visit.

“Fun atmosphere-great food”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

This great little place was highly recommended by the concierge at our B&B and what a terrific place it is. Glad we made a reservation as it was packed and rightly so. The brew choices are near limitless and the food is great. Highly recommend.

“GREAT FOOD ,ATMOSPHERE & BEER”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Hi just had a break in bruges and after studying TA picked cambrinus and booked for four people on a monday evening on the 15rh november a supposedly quiet time befor the christmas markets ,its a good job we booked as every table was taken which led to a great buzzing atmosphere,the food was fab especially the three course menu where all 3 courses are made using the house beer which 2 of us had the other 2 having italian dishes which were lovely ,all the food came in very generous portions and i couldnt finish my main or dessert which no one who knows me will beleive,the beer was fabulous and we tried a lot including a beer sampler which was 4 different glasses of beer in a wooden frame,service was very good some of the younger waiting staff were a little brusque but the guy who served us who was a little older whos name i didnt get was excellent ,for four of us with lots of beer and food the bill was around £110 which i thought was excellent value,i highly recommend cambrinus and will definitely return if we get back to bruges
