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

Had a nice - casual style - drinks and dinner on the terrace outside. Lovely view on the city on the other side of the creek, good food, and a lovely selection of Belgian beers.

We spent every evening at the Belgian Beer Cafe during our stay at the Crowne Plaza and were very impressed by both the atmosphere and magnificent view over the Creek. On our final evening we enjoyed a meal there and found the quality of the food first class. The venue is popular with local ex-pats, in itself a recommendation.

Staff very friendly, helpful and efficient. I tried the cheese balls with the sweet chilli sauce which were soft and gooey on the inside with a crispy crust. The smoked salmon sandwich was delicious. The savory Belgian waffle with chicken stew was yummy. Everything super fresh. Must absolutely sit outside where you have amazing views over the Dubai creek. Great... More

If you like Belgium then you should visit. Good range of beers and food with a great view over the creek. Very convenient if your staying in the Crown Plaza or Intercontinental.

The setting outdoor creekside is great. Open air atmosphere. The Belgian burger was a thick juicy patty which was delicious. Also the goat cheese salad was good. Recommend it

Well positioned restaurant and the best French Fries in town. The mussels are highly recommendable and there is a large variety of beers to choose from.

The BBC always used to offer a great a la carte brunch that sadly disappeared a couple of years ago. After a couple of of disappointment alternatives, they are now back with a new concept brunch. All you can drink (house beverages) plus a platter style food option. The portions are huge so you may want to omit some of... More

I have been a VERY regular at BBC for two years as a terrace user. I have complained MANY times about the arrogance of smokers..The Management have now DEDICATED a section of the terrace to NON smokers! Thank you!! This section will expand the more non smokers support it. A victory for those of us that can now wear a... More

I visited on Saturday lunch this November. With the nice weather the terrace is a pleasure! Staff very friendly and careful (not very crowded day). We were there for the mussels but we chose the brunch: for 225 dhs unlimited drinks and food. The list of beers is very wide and good. A very nice experience.
