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.
