A cold german beer overlooking the creek, shimmering lights in the distance. I personally think inside is a bit 'drab'.. .probably more suitable for a group of men (there were plenty). Outside it's one of the best spots in Dubai. Would definitely recommend this place if your hotel is nearby or you've just done something in deira or the creek.... More

Over looking the creek and ship building yard, few places offer such amazing views in the city. It's calm quite place except for... More

Food was good as were the drinks. Had a great night (x 4). The location has a reasonable view across to the Burg Khalifa (at some distance) but (outdoors' area) was warm enough with appropriate clothing.

On the Creek with great views. Burj Khalifa dominates the skyline viewed from the outdoor terrace. Satisfying selection of food and drink. Can get lively at certain times. A popular venue and deservedly so.

If you are a huge fan of beer, I would highly recommend this place to you. Belgian beer cafe is the place for you especially during winters to enjoy different types of beer coupled with great food. Try booking in advance during winters for a seat outside as it offers great view. The ambience of the cafe is incredible and... 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.
