Great food, moles and fritts, and a good selection of cold beers. Prices are a bit steep and smoking still allowed inside (not used to that anymore)

An amazing collection of good beers. The best was indeed the terrace with view on the creek. I did not like the fact that people were smoking inside instead.

The atmosphere is great for gathering with friends or business partners. The beer is very good but the prices are a little steep. Food is excellent as is the service.

A great selection of Belgian beer in a rustic setting. The Belgian fries are really great. A must try are the mussels, really lovely. A great way to finish off a busy day. The service is really good and the wait time even though it gets really busy in the evening is minimal. A must try place to unwind.

We were lucky to get a table on the terrace, there was Champions League football on the tv! Indoors is not so hot as there is smoking permitted. Great view of the Creek, lights of downtown Dubai and the beautifully illuminated dhows passing up and down the Creek. BTW is also serves great beer! There are few bars in Dubai... More

The casual atmosphere and European feel are spread throughout the restaurant, and then you can enjoy a drink or two outside on the deck overlooking the Dubai Creek. Great place to unwind after a busy workday of... More
