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.

“Had a good meal”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

Was a little concerned when I first saw the menu, but the food did not disappoint. This bar has character, only dislike is smoking in the bar, Dubai hasn't caught up with the rest of the world with banning smoking in bars/restaurants

“wonderful outlook to Dubai Creek”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Great spot for Belgian beers and waffles. We were there at lovely sunset. Very busy at the time we were there so chance it or book and ask for an outside table.

“Una sorpesa a Dubai”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

Finalmente a Dubai una scelta di birre che differisce dalle solite Heineken e Stella Artois onnipresenti (e unica scelta dopo la Corona)in questa città!
Blue cheese burger ottimo, carne saporita e ottima cottura, pane squisito e personale affabile....una novità gradita,ottima alternativa FINALMENTE al solito Irish Village!

Finally comes in Dubai a choise of beers ,no more just Heineken and Stella(the mainly choises after Corona)
Blue cheese Burger delicious, meat tasty and perfectly cooked, bread homemade ....staff kind and friendly! A great alternative to Irish Village!

“Great place to eat if your staying in Festival City”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

We were staying at the hotel so thought we would try this place out and were pleased we did!
Great selection of beers and the Moules Marinière was great too!
We went on a Thursday night - there was live music and the place was busy creating a real buzz - which we found to be lacking in other restaurants in Dubai.
Would highly recommend
