“Blah... bland boring muscles and smokers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We went back to try the much touted muscles. Really? It just proves that Doha is so so boring with not much going on if the talk of the town are the muscles and fries at the Belgian. Combined with the smokers it really is nearly laughable. They are simply muscles in a pot, nothing exciting at all, could do better at home. The beers good if I have to find something I like, but only at happy hour prices otherwise just a rip off. Put it this way, you can get 24 bottles of leffe at QDC for 200 Riyal, here one glass costs 50 Riyal......you don't need to be Good Will Hunting to figure out you are being grossly overcharged. Only good for a couple of ales during happy hour and then only if you can sit as close to the door as possible because the smoke will kill you.

“The best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

For a drink, its one of the best places I highly recommend in town. But the dinner menu is strange and I hardly find something to eat. The good thing is that it opens at 12:30 pm and the lunch menu contains nice salads and burgers.

“Nice cozy pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Typical European atmosphere. Nice mussels & food selection. Happy hour 1700-1900. It's a decent place to go with a few friends or if you feel like a drink something to eat on your own because it has this light casual air to it.

“Rowdy, smoky, decent food and great beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Sadly this great bar lacks any sort of view and is a little smokey but whether you go for a feed, for a great Belgian beer or to watch the attempted pick ups its always a good night out.

It would be nice if they varied the menu occasionally.
