Great beer garden, great beer, great location

First, a mea culpa. I reviewed the Yacht Club and misnamed this place. No matter, after dining at the Yacht Club, we passed away a very pleasant evening with after dinner drinks in the outdoor garden. So relaxing to sit back and be attended to by polite and friendly staff who were eager to... read more

First out door table covered with ants. Second table, the service was extremely slow with only one server on this week night. Quite busy. Waited at least an hour for the main course. Always had to ask for service, they never came to the table without a prompt. Disappointed since we've been here a few times. This was quite bad.

Although not a beer expert, there was a really extensive choice! The tasty French fries went well with the beer. A very popular place at weekends. Good offer of unlimited mussels on Mondays if you like them.

I've been to this place a couple times, both for events so with large groups over the weekend. Nice ambiance, especially with the city and water views, they usually have a live band. There wasn't much in the menu I liked, felt it was limited so went with Fish and Chips. A friend had the sausage dish though with veggie... More

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
