Not far off the main square and on the upscale end of the spectrum, but not uncomfortable, it has a certain "fancy" feel and that shows in some of the prices. But all that is worth while when you look behind the bar. Huge selection of bottles, just about every Trappist beer (I didn't see Westy, but I didn't ask) and 4 or 5 taps going. Every beer I got was in good condition and properly served. Our service was fair and we (Bierschenker and I) had the rabbit which was Really good.
The background noise was American 80s pop music, which seems to be everywhere in Belgium, and there were a few HDTV flat screens that were thankfully off. As mention, smokers, but Europeans just seem to be that way. There were some older ladies at the bar that seemed to get just hammered, it was kind of funny.
Worth a stop, you'll get a good selection and some good food, but you'll pay a bit for it. I'd go back.

We ended up at Cambrinus just as the late dinner crowd was thinning, and seating was available. This place is one of the best beer bars in the city and the beer menu is a huge two inch thick beast with wooden covers! It took us quite some time to narrow down our options while faced with a seemingly endless amount to choose from. I ended up ordering a tart and wonderful Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, also sharing a Girardin Framboise and Rodenbach Vintage 2011 with our group. We did not eat there this time, but last trip we found the local Flemish fare to be wonderful and often included beer in the preparation. We finished by splitting a Pannepot strong ale from nearby brewers De Struise.

The place is usually packed, warm, and loud, but one of the best beer destinations in Bruges for sure.

Visited April 2, 2014. Nice size rest/brewery with a clean modern take on a belgian bierhouse. Menu very extensive ordered beer sausage cheese platter, a goat cheese and bacon salad, onion soup and tbone for 2 with cambrinus house sauce. Service was on point and very accomodating. Temperature was slightly hot so my heat sensitive sis made us move to a table in the back but was not a problem hence forth. The cambrinus logo looks like the drunk santa klaus ive imagined since childhood. Waitress was on top of her game as far as service goes but her knowlege of beer could have been better. All in all it was a great atmosphere with an extensive menu of food and beer and I would return upon my next visit to Brugge.
