This place is always crowded and bursting with people from around the world. Nice ambience with indoor as well outdoor seating. They have a good collection of tap beers. We enjoyed a lot with a big bucket of mussels which is their speciality. If you don't want to go out of your hotel after a tiring day this is tour... More

After all this time, the Belgian Cafe at the Intercontinental Hotel continues to be a favorite spot to relax and catch up with friends. The atmosphere is unpretentious and friendly; during the cooler evenings, it has the best terrace in the city,... More

Accidentally I got to Belgian Cafe,one of my friends had a birthday and I was invited. But honestly I'm sorry for myself that have never been there before. It's a great bar, with wide selection of beers. Food there is not bad at all. I tried burger and it was really delicious. Prices quite average, valuable enough. Although it is... More

Description
Since its opening in 2009, Belgian Café Abu Dhabi has been the city's leading restaurant amongst locals, expats and tourists offering the best of Belgium. Fresh mussels, chunky frites, Belgian waffles and exclusive Belgian beers served up in a classically European setting. The Belgian Café is a little piece of old Brussels right in the heart of Abu Dhabi. A clear favourite to unwind after a busy working day or start your well deserved weekend, the Belgian Café terrace serves up for any occasion. Add to that a marina view that never disappoints.
