Delicious and great value

Blend of special and normal dishes, but very nicely presented and very delicious. Refined, but casual. Highly recommended, for mussels special day too.

I absolutely love this place. Great food, indoor and outdoor sitting overlooking the marina. Nice background music. And if you are a beer lover, you will certainly enjoy the menu. My favorite is the Hoegarden - with fries of course. Delish! The only bad thing is the smell of cigarette inside...

Nice atmosphere, great garden overlooking the marina. However, food is quite pricey and I tried ordering a burger, and they indicated that it would take 40 mins. The BBC in Dubai is much better!

Living in Abu Dhabi, we have access to hundreds of top-quality restaurants, and yet, we are regulars at the Belgian Cafe. This restaurant offers excellent food, a great selection of Belgiums finest beers, and most of all, exemplary service. In fact, we seek out one particular server...Sonali. She is friendly, polite, efficient, and makes each of our visits so pleasant.... More

Very nice location. Excellent fries! With my friends we had several orders of fries! They were so good! Not a bad selection of beers but it could be better.

A lovely pub, full of character with fantastic outdoor seating by the Marina. Always busy especially the weekend. Service is great as are the beers. Food is ok, used to be really good- fresh potato fries!!!! Yummy, (not any more). Moule is a bit suspect too. My favourite is the mushroom on toast & the Salads. Lovely ambiance.

It is one of my favourite places in Abu Dhabi. I always pay a visit. Went with my colleagues after a tiring day at the IDEX exhibition. The quality of food and drink was just as I left it. The mussels were delicious and the main course (in my case fish and chips) just right. The service was a little... More

I went here for a drink after dinner. One of the most casual place you can find in a hotel for alcohol. Good place to chill out after the itchy casual formal dress dinner. Lots of outdoor seats with good atmosphere, and the night scenery - drinking in front of the Jumeirah Etihad Tower was also a great experience. Lots... More

Restaurant needs to change its management and become customer focused. I have been there a few times because the outside eating area by the marina is great during the winter months. Unfortunately, the service is one of the worst in Abu Dhabi. Last few times I went, I had to chase down a waitress to bring me a menu, then... More
