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.

Belgian Cafe at Intercontinental is an original place for those liking Belgian-style mussels and fries. It is a good conceptual restaurant to enjoy a lively atmosphere. However when sitting indoor, background noise is making a terrible racket. It is impossible to have a discussion without speaking loudly. Management should damp noise by installing special noise reduction devices or rearranging the... More

If you want to try real Belgian mussels this is the place to go - unexpected to eat such a great Fisch in Abu Dhabi but they are fresh, very tasty served with Belgian fries. The soups are great to but you will have problems to eat both :) kind service staff, real Belgian beer - great experience !

Food and drinks are good at Belgian Cafe. The outdoor area is lovely as it is overlooking the sea. The service can be improved.

I eat here a few times a month on a Thursday evening and enjoy the location after a busy week at work. 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 interested. Whoever is responsible for F&B needs to address... More

Great beer and food selection, large outdoor seating area and sport on the TV. Feels like you are in Brussels apart from the climate of course.

After 6 days in Abu Dhabi, I learned that if you want alcohol, you go to a hotel for lunch/dinner. The Belgian Café was popular with locals and visitors. We sat outside overlooking the marina, which is lovely. The menu is what you'd expect at a Belgian restaurant -- mussels, fries, salmon, beef lamb. The service was VERY slow, to... More
