Dubai's original Belgian Beer Cafe assures its visitors an authentic experience of an olden day bistro from early 1920s Belgium. Old fashioned beer taps, imported memorabilia and antique floor tiles line the restaurant giving it a warm, rural and lived-in feel, which you are sure to appreciate while enjoying the wide range of Belgian beverages. The authenticity also spreads to the kitchen, where hearty favourites of the homeland, such as the signature "Moules-frites" (mussels with fries), can be found. Enjoy Happy Hour every Sunday and Monday between 6pm to 7pm where you can buy one and get one free on selected beverages.

Always Good

Great service and food is also very good. If you don't smoke stay clear of the smoking areas. Although they are pretty hard to find

This was just my wife and myself revisiting but it was amazing how many of the staff remembered us - again. As ever there was a tremendous buzz about the place, with people coming and going, and by mid evening both inside and outside are quite stretched. This does not, however, hamper the service nor the speed at which the... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the ability to sit outside and be on the water. Tables turned often and the crowd was good looking.

We were seated promptly outdoors on the deck. We asked to be as far away from smoking as possible. Unfortunately most of the area inside and out is for smoking and we did get smoke from a chain smoker nearby in the smoking section. We weren't too hungry. They said we could split a burger. The burger came warpped up... More

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
