Cambrinus is great...provided you make a reservation. It seems a lot of the reviewers here expected to walk into one of the most popular places in one of the most popular tourist cities in Europe without a reservation and expected to get a seat right away. This place has an awesome food selection...great mussels, great Flemish dishes,,really good food. The beer selction is GREAT!! Absolutely awesome. Order everything from Westvleteren 12s to Rochefort 10s to most every other Belgiam beer you can think of. A must for dinner if you are in Bruges...just make a reservation.
Visited Cambrinus today for dinner, food was outstanding and the beer selection is over the top. I had a Westy Blonde, a Cantillon Gueuze and a 3 Fonteinen. Over 400 bottles. Food was delicious, I had Flemish Beef stew, my wife had the rabbit. Service was a little slow but they were completely full the night we went. Make reservations.
Came hear after i heard about it many times - was a bit surprised
The place was completely full ( reservations ) yet they cleared a table for me ( their very last )
I asked a sampler from draft , got it for free !
The place was very crowded , yet they were chatting with me all the time . Felt like i was a VIP
Food wad delicious . Had stue , never had a better one than there !
Staff was very helpfull , smiling all the time ( without faking , so it seemed ) and very helpfull to any question i had . If they didnt know , thet ask someone in stead of telling you lies
They have 400 beer ( didnt count but that seema rather high ) yet nothing realy rare ( not much ticks ) yet they have goodies ! ( black albert , duchesse de bourgogne ,... )
So , in short lines :
- Best food ever
- Best service imaginable
- Very decent selection
- Very nice prices
Need to say more ? They sell freaking fou foune for less than 12 euroís . When thet have it , at least . Cause at that price , they fly !
Big cheers to tom ( the self insurance he has - its like heís the owner ) and nathalie ( a smile that lights up t
Your day , and one of the most friendly people i met lately ! )
Realy . Forget all about the assholes @ heeren van liedekerke . These guys have respect for the brewers , the beers , and the costumors .
Ow , and tge bartender happens to be the son of the brewer of the housbeer ( van steenberfe , but still ) so any questions ...
Truly the best beer related place to eat ive ever been / expect to be .
Reservations are needed , i supose you now know why ..
Do yourself a favor; get a reservation, then prepare for an AWESOME experience. They have the best beer menu of any restaurant Iíve ever seen (color-coded!) and almost everything is in stock! Every meal Iíve had there has been unforgettable, and pretty much everything is cooked with beer! The cheese croquettes we ate for our appetizer were made with Chimay cheese. Cambrinus is the real King of Beer!
