This place is good for couple of evening drinks . Service and food was ok. Drinks are adequately priced. The beer selection is good not over the top but the beers on it are great and for everyone tastes. The service is very inconsistent! From good to really bad.

This is a large restaurant, with a good sized bar. That is about where the positives end for me, the service is so terrible that it ruins any of the pleasure of average food and isn't even compensated for the fact there is an exceptionally good range of beers. Price wise, I find this restaurant on the high-side, although discounts... More

I note a lot of negative comments about the food however I stuck to the fish and Chips which I have to say must be about the best I have ever tasted. Large portions - 2 large pieces of fish so did not eat all the chips that arrived. Service was friendly but a little slow initially and we had... More

Went there twice, being Belgian. The beer selection is impressive. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing: my husband had ordered Liege-style meatballs, a favourite of ours in Belgium. Unfortunately, he couldn't eat them because they were very, very dry, a shame really when you know what this dish is supposed to taste like. I had the chicken liver and the mussels... More

Keep in mind to order the Leffe Brune when you come here. It is simply AMAZING if you like dark beer. As for the food: - The steak is bland - The fish and chips is bland - The mussels are really good - The meatballs and mashed potatoes are good

We stayed at the IC during the World Cup and on the 2 occasions we tried to dine here it was packed with noisy fans watching the many TV screens set up to watch the games. I mentioned that we were residents and even tried to book a table but was told that it was 'first come, first served' which... More

This place is located in the 1st floor of the Intercontinental Abu Dhabi. It opens earlier than any place I know around here (1600, food from 1700). I ordered the Flemish beef pie. It's your standard Shepherd's pie with beef covered in a crisped whipped potato layer. There is no veg in this dish just meat and potatoes. It's a... More

Food is really simple but great! Never had a bad meal there and I doubt I will. The selection of Belgium beers is pretty good too and they offer you a small sample if you are not sure what you would like. Always very busy later on in the evenings, not so bad early on but always best to book... More
