We visited the Belgian Beer Cafe on our last night of a 2 month stay with our daughter before returning to Cyprus. The terrace was pleasant, except for the football commentary on the sound system, and it gave the children (3 and 5) time to get over their emotions at us leaving. The service was very good and the staff... More

Not at this hotel anyway. The signage says Belgian Cafe, the Menu says the same... What I think we have here is a Belgian Beer Cafe that has lost it's franchise and simply altered the sign and carried on exactly the same but without paying for the rights. As for why they may or may not have done this is... More

First off, I have to say that the mussels and the beer selection they have is excellent! Service seemed a bit lost and some things had to be re-ordered or did not come as requested. Atmosphere is nice on the terrace, though their music selection seems very random and not fitting the concept. Overall it's a decent place to have... More

Are you one of those who miss the beers and atmosphere of a Belgium or German beer garden? Then make your way over to the Belgian Beer Café in the Intercontinental Abu Dhabi. This was our first visit to this particular restaurant in the hotel (we have also been to Chamas) and we were not disappointed. The table ordered their... More

A nice venue that does tend to get rather overcrowded and as it does so the service levels plummet. It's a very popular venue so they really should make more of an effort to maintain the service standards when it does get busy. The quality of the food varies from average at best to good. It can take some time... More

A large group visited last week and as usual the cafe was bustling with people and had a great atmosphere. The food and drinks are always served promptly and fresh. Any problems are amended immediately. There is a no smoking area but as the evening descends so does the smoke. The price we pay for living in the UAE.

Since Belgians make hell a lot of beers of different varieties and strengths and it would be impractical to expect a hotel beer bar in Abu Dhabi to offer most of them, one would expect more variety and choices for such a popular place. But Belgian bar has managed to get whatever is available on the menu right- they have... More

If you want to have a good time with friends with good beer and great service this is the place. It has an English look with some calm lighting!

One of the most relaxing and chilled places to grab a beer for the weekend. Been a regular here for about 5 years now and I do not regret even one single night. Worth it.
