Reviewed from notes dated May 23, 2013.

A-Cambrinus is located in the centrum of Brugge within walking distance of the city's main attractions. The place is well-lit (a touch bright) and inviting. Tourist friendly, I would say, with a bit of TGI Fridays feel to it. The restaurant is good-sized for Europe with seating in one large room that is split into two levels and houses a 25-foot long bar with stools. A hefty mural of King Cambrinus stared down at us from the back wall.

Q-The beer list was, as you might expect, full of Belgians. The bottle list was well-curated with a high-quality selection that included some harder-to-find offerings, including Westvleteren. As is typical in the old world, the tap list was pretty limited.

Ser-The service was prompt, friendly, and food delivery was well-timed. However, the beer glasses delivered to our table were noticeably warm (perhaps from sitting under a lamp?) and the servers did not take the time to pour the beer.

Sel-As noted above, the bottle list is pretty impressive with a good bit of selection in each style of Belgian. I did not notice anything super-unusual, but they did have a few vintage offerings and some more off-the-beaten-path brews from the better-known Belgian breweries.

F-The menu is pretty heavy and leans toward traditional meat and potatoes style food. I had rabbit with a gravy and some buttery mashed spuds and the wife had chicken with with a gravy-like stew and croquettes. Both were tasty (and made with beer), but a touch traditional and uninspired.

V-Prices were on the better side of reasonable for a tourist-feeling establishment in a tourist town like Brugge.

Yea, solid selection. But no clue why this is rated so highly. Had Fou Fone and other Cantillon on the menu (only €11.75 for Fou) but only Kriek and Rose actually in stock. Westy Blond and 8 also on menu and out of stock. Poor service overall. Food was below Chili’s level. Very disappointed. While for an American, drinking 2 Cantillons and a Westy 12 with lunch is awesome, these are all over the local shop shelves and there were no other things nice about this place. Stop in I guess, but better places to eat with a fine beer selection everywhere. Seriously this place is a major tourist trap ambiance.
