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 6 pm to 7 pm where you can buy one and get one free on selected beverages.

This works for everyone. The food is great, upscale belgian bar food, the setting is relaxed. the staff is friendly the view is not to be under estimated. It does get quite cold on winter nights, but the heaters and the varied alcohol menu come together nicely to shield you from the desert winds. While i would recommend the fried... More

Great setting overlooking business bay the creek and burj khalifa. The terrace outside which is quite large is the best place to sit and also has heaters. It's very crowded especially at weekends. The beer choices are good and the food is okay. Great to take in the views but service is a very very slow think they are actually... More

Fantastic place for an evening out with the friends. The beer is great, the service is usually good but can be significantly lower than expected during the weekends. The atmosphere is truly great - don't bother sitting inside, book a table outside.

Sat outside on the high top tables and had the Leffe Brun. Lovely flavor and super fresh brown ale. We also enjoyed the mussels and the app platter which consisted of cheese, shrimp, fries and other nibbles. They also had heaters on the patio which worked well. On the waterfront with the bridge lit in the background, it was a... More

If you are in town visit this place during the weekend there is a two piece band that's plays some awsome music. Good food and located in a very attractive place. You can be here with your family & friends no restrictions on kids, these have good cocktails served. Very friendly staff & management.
