3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was nice just to have a place to sit quietly and have a drink and eat. You have to expect it to be pricey but it was convenient.

What i vouch is the ambience and... More

Staying at Crown plaza Festival City and wondering how to kill the night I checked this place - and I made the best choice! Variety of food - my choice was the Belgian Plate - to big for one person but if you stay long is great! If you are a group you can easily share it between 3 to... More

Decent selection of beers served in appropriate glassware and at the right temperature - something not always guaranteed elsewhere! The small plates of food were great to share around the table, in particular the Meatballs and Charcuterie

I don't like smoking environments but wanted to eat somewhere different and they kindly put me very far away from all the smoke at tables that were not really serviced. The food was delicious and I was happy that night.

Burger Club Dubai decided that a trip to 'City Jumeirah' was in order for our visit to Belgium Beer Cafe @ the Madinat. Nestled between the sprawling palaces of Jumeirah Beach, confidence was high that we would find a mighty burger fit for a Sheikh. Located riverside in one of the Madinat's many bazaar-fashioned streets sits the Belgium Beer Cafe.... More

Belgian Beer Cafe overlooks the water and Dubai skyline. It is great place to relax outdoors for light meal and drinks.

Heard about the cherry beer so decided it was worth a visit. Totally delicious. Views of the creek are spectacular - staff attentive and efficient. Had mussels and chip to compliment the beer - great choice and again, totally delicious. Great selection of beers but if you go you have to try the cherry!

The terrace of the Belgian beer cafe is one of the best in Dubai. You can watch the sunset or the lights at night of the creek and it's beautiful. The service is ok but a bit slow at times but the rating of the food really depends on what you order. I had the Belgian cafe burger which was... More

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.
