The beer was good, just like at our neighbors... Only thing the view is different. Burger was good, and if you are familiar with Begian fries they were good as well. Fact that this venue is connected to the hotel was for me a reason...More

The best mussels selection in town, generous portions, and you just have to appreciate that fries come with mayo. :) When we had Good Friday brunch, the music was also amazing: a varied mix of pop with some great guitar. Simple, but engaging.

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.
