This is one of the best bars in Abu Dhabi when it comes to beer selection. You can select from a full set of Belgium beers which is some times hard to find even in Bruselss. It is a bit expensive but you can benefit from Happy hour (buy1 get 1 free). When you go for food, go for stakes... More

Went for dinner here on 2nd January. Would not have bothered if we had known before it was a 'dry day'. However I don't think any amount of alcohol could have improved the service. No one smiles at this restaurant. Staff are unhappy and have a couldn't care less attitude. We waited for 15 minutes before anyone even bothered to... More

I decided to bring my friends for a NYE celebration at the Belgian Cafe. Our request for an outdoor seating was accommodated however, our table was set up far from the rest without any heater. We appreciate that they accommodated us for the outdoor seating but we weren't comfortable at all because it was cold and no heater provided despite... More

I'd been looking forward to mussels and belgian beer here for the entire two weeks of my trip to the UAE. We came on my final night as a group of four after trying to eat at the Belgian Beer Cafe at the Novotel (City Gate). That branch had no mussels so we came to the Intercontinental. The food was...

Belgian Cafe has a beautiful terrace if you choose to dine outdoors! Unfortunately that is the only positive I can find. A previous reviewer, Tsauh summed up our experiences perfectly - 'What I don't enjoy is the service. The overall standard of service is poor, especially when sitting outside and is totally disorganised. Staff are not attentive nor friendly nor... More

Great place to sit outside and enjoy the food and the draught beer. Monday evening has a "as much as you want" mussels. Service was a bit rushed on one the two occasions I was there, related to all seats occupied and a queue waiting to get a seat. So come in time to get a good seat. Mussels were... More

The weather is just so perfect for seating outside plus the view of the yachts that are duct adjacent to the bar have added to the beauty of the sorrounding.
