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.

“Expensive ”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable regarding the menu contents.
Try to take a table on the terrace it's nice view of bridge blue lights.
Food quality is very good but as I mentioned its expensive 85 DHS for a the house special burger.
the beer selection one of the best in town.

“My favourite place in the city but not for dining.”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I love this place. Maybe it's because I love Belgium. The setting is wonderful and some of the live entertainment was great. Was also very well looked after by the staff. I always look forward to returning, sitting on the balcony drinking Kriek looking out over the biggest buildings in the world is a treasured memory. I must mention the food though, I had steak tartare when I visited two years ago but it's not on the menu any more which was a shame, when I visited last time the food was actually ok even though I just went in because of the bar. The food they are serving now in all honest is chronic and I would never eat there again, the food actually is an insult to the establishment. People seemed to be enjoying the mussels so perhaps that's one good thing on the menu? Like I said I love this place and will most definitely return and look forward to, but if this review was based on the food I don't think I'd even give it one mark. Sorry guys.
