At the back of the Intercon, next to the marina is a varied selection of restaurants and cafe's. The Belgian cafe is just one of several lovely places to eat. Here however the vibe is really chilled and relaxed. The menu of food and beers being Belgian is a little more unusual and a breath of fresh air. All beautifully... More

Had 5 nights all inclusive at the Intercontinental, and visited the Belgian Beer Cafe every night. Food was good, especially the Mussels. Great choice of Beers as well.

Great to pop in on the way from the beach or dinner restaurants for a night cap on the way back to the room, live premier league soccer too!

The food was great (perfect French onion soup, rib eye, bone marrow, washed down with a veritable bucket of Hoegaarden), the service prompt, on a very busy evening, relaxed and charming; and the icing on the cake was a really good jazz trio playing modern compositions and also requests - Take 5, Fly Me To The Moon, Beyond the Sea...

Having lived in Belgium for years, we hungered for authentic 'moules & frites'...and the mussels & fries here are the 'real deal', accompanied by imported Belgian beers. The open courtyard features marina & skyline views...most pleasant. However, prices are high ($100.+ just for 2 mussels & beer portions), and the service is unexplainably slow, even for beverages, and not friendly.... 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.
