The environment is excellent with friendly staff and good service. Music is excellent and the Belgian dishes are well worth going there for from Mussels to Belgian Fries. In the winter the outside terrace is so relaxing. The choice of European and Belgian beers is without parallel in Dubai.

Love this bar/restaurant as it has great beer, good food, live music and the best bar staff you could ever meet. It has a great atmosphere is nearly always busy yet the staff still find time to make a fuss of you and the service is five star. The only downer is smoking but that's the same throughout Dubai...get yourself... More

Whilst staying at the Intercontinental we simply had a walk and discovered this Belgian concept. As with all concepts we were quite apprehensive but this was little Belgium in Dubai, real freshly cooked specialities that reminded me of my childhood when I lived in Bruges. Bitterballen, videe, and of course the atmosphere, GREAT! One bad note smoking is still allowed... More

Although I am Belgian and like to try out local food when I am in a foreign country, I definitively wanted to go to the Belgian Beer Café as soon as I booked my stay at Crowne Plaza Festival City. The café is situated at the ground floor of this hotel, next to the reception. When I arrived at the... More

Although we really enjoy the beer and food at the BBC, I must say the fact that they permit smoking inside the pub is sickening. Should you opt to be seated in the non smoking section you are promptly directed to the dark and gloomy section right near the entrance. The bright area with a fantastic view is reserved for... More
