Nice place with yummy food for a casual night out. Dishes are huge and not that expensive. Great selection of beers and good fresh juices. Nice atmosphere and good live music. Extra mile: the restaurant manager : in a previous visit a waiter stained accidentally my husband's jacket. The manager arranged for a speedy dry clean service and at the... More

I happen to be a fan of Belgian beers so this was a nice surprise while staying in Festival City. I think the strong points of this bar are the beers and the outside seating. I only had late-nite food and appetizers. The burger and fries were respectable. Some of the cheese appetizers were average. I found the service to... More

Excellent value for money. This unpretentious brunch has a very relaxed atmosphere. The three course menu was varied and more than satisfactory. No choice required, their creed is, We bring you it all and if you want more of anything, just let us know. Starters were a selection of calamari, shrimp cocktail, chicken wings, bitterballen, fries and more. Mains consisted... More

The beer selection was good and we headed there just before going for some Thai food.. We had a combination of Leffe Blond, Hoegaarden fraise and Kreuk (cherry) beer... There is a good sitting area outside but it was full, which is a testament to the establishment so we did our gentle boozing inside instead. It would be a good... More

This is a delightful beer/restaurant with a Belgian theme. We have been there a few times and enjoyed it every time. The Sunday brunch is a very good spread indeed and naturally enough the beer is plentiful. But the best deal is the daily menu with accompanying beverages which comes out relatively cheaply. Leave your car for valet parking and... More

On a recent vsit to Festival City mall we found that due to the current renovations taking place that a large selection of restaurants are unavilable. We noticed the Intercontinental Hotel & Crown Plaza hotel which are adjacent to the mall and decided to try and find a venue for lunch. There is a covered walkway between the mall and... More

I was based at the DFC Crowne Plaza and ate in the Beer Cafe three or four times. Specials are good value, check the chalk board - your server will probably suggest them. Starters and mains are all well-presented and cooked (steaks recommended) - didn't get as far as puddings, I'll try and do better next time. Good range of... More
