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.

Love it here and always try to sit outside especially this time of year. Beer selection is great; the food is good and wholesome. The only drawback is the service is a bit hit and miss during peak periods. Almost always busy so best to book if you can.

The only difference is: it's either warm or (very) hot on the terrace, but the beers are just like home
