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.

Our first meal upon arrival - steak and chips, just what the doctor ordered, washed down with a delightful Stella ( me anyway).

Great place to watch football - probably just as well I did not avail myself of some of their happy hour offers.

Friendly bar with live football on the TV, beer is good with lacks a wide variety as they only serve Belgian brands.
Very quiet during the afternoon and early evening
The food is homely and very nice plenty of pork on the menu if that interests you.
One massive downfall the seats in the bar are hard, wooden straight back you would be doing well to sit there comfortable for more than 1 hour.
The seating outside is nice and relaxed though
Definitly worth a visit

We had reserved our table ahead of time and upon arrival we found out that our table was exactly near the amplifiers and we had a baby with us. So the staff was glad to change our table into a calmer area although the place was full especially outside.
A very nice setting with nice music in the background. You can smell the meat at the bar-b-que stand outside, however it does not bother you at all. On the contrary, it's a lovely smell!
Beer was amazing, especially the "Stella Artoi" beer!
The service was impecable...the waiters were extrememly attentive such that if a napkin was used tthey directly replace it.
The food was good ...pork ribs are tastey but not the best i have had..
Could be better!! However the Wagyu burger was really tastey especially the beet root in it, gave it a strange yummy taste.
It is important to note that this place doesn't accept men wearing shorts and flip flops.

While the beer is good the food can be a bit hit or miss. Just another average bar in Abu Dhabi that doesn't particularly scream 'wow'. Music can be a bit loud when eating.

I spent here my birthday just the other day and was honeslty impressed. The place itself is really relaxed, great for evening drinks and some snacks ( bbq spare ribs are great!) with a lovely vew of the Etihad Towers,
But what was more impressive is the kindness of the staff who work in the Café. They were all genuine and easy-going but at the same time maintaining the 5 star service level.
I received even a beer glass as a bday present on behalf of the company, which is such a nice touch that just makes the guest ( in our case, all 7 of us) happy! Thank you Indika for the special attention!
I especially would like mention Sameer who was at our assistance during the night. He made us comfortable with tiny jokes, paid special attention to the occasion ( that is my bday) and his product knowledge was creditable! Thank you!
I spent a great night in Belgian Café and would recommend it to anybody who'd like to have great Belgian beer along with lovely service!
