I have been coming to Abu Dhabi on business for the past four years and have been to the Belgian Cafe many times, but I will not be going back any time soon. Four colleagues and I went for dinner on 26 March 2014, looking forward to a casual evening out, celebrating the end of two weeks of hard project... More

We went 5 times in 7 days, says it all really. It is indoor and outdoor. The menu was really good and had a great selection of biers. They did the best Long Island cocktails I have ever had, and I have had lots. I had beef stew or the cod, my wife had the stew or the pie. Each... More

we ate here twice and both times the food and atmosphere was great. For us the menu was very good ,more like a pub menu ,at times we just did not want a full on meal. We were staying at The Hilton and I think the cost of a taxi was £2/3. Excellent

We were recommended here by some locals. A great varied menu with number of appealing dishes. The pork and fillet steak were fantastic. Great service too. Would definitely recommend.

No doubt the beverages are super cold and they have the right choices from the BENELUX. Yet, their mussels are the primary magnate to go as often as we can. The wait staff can be a bit slow and get distracted, but once food and beverage are on the table, the quality of both makes one dismiss the speed of... More

I ordered Stella, comes cold and ready. Nice place for friends to let go and enjoy being out viewing the marina scene. Lovely seating out side but sometimes hard to find a table. Go early or send a squatter (is that a real word?) . Anyhow you get what I mean. Oh ... their chips / french fries in the... More

Food was great, but a bit expensive. The view over the yacht club is nice as well. It has a nice atmosphere, but I think its a bit over priced.

The Belgian Beer Cafe is not a place to visit for its food. There was a number of appealing options on the menu that unfortunately read better than I suspect any of them tasted. I chose the pork belly option. No matter how deprived of pork one might feel diners are advised to stay clear of this particular option. The... More

Me and my husband both ate the pork options. My husband enjoyed his pork ribs, I ordered the pork with black pudding and was disappointed. The meat was dry and tasteless. I don't want to eat a meal that I could cook better myself. Fries were the best part! Would visit for nibbles and drinks but not for a meal

A must visit. This place serves excellent beer, in great surroundings to catch up with buddies. Not eaten in the main restaurant but it looks and smells de-lish. Loads of outdoor seating, and its always busy - a good sign. On the downside, the service was just ok, and its a little pricey...
