I love this branch of Belgian bar the best! Outdoor has really nice views and the beer is very fresh.

The terrace overlooking the creek with views of downtown is the place to eat although it is now getting a little warm. Mussels with blue cheese or spicy Thai highly recommend with great beers and ciders,deserts are not bad either. Friendly staff

Meal average Expensive for what you get probably due to the fact it's joined to Marriott hotel. Lovely view of the creek from outside but be warned very smokey due to smokers x Not child friendly

A typical Belgian Pub on the creek side of Dubai. Great selection of beers, we tried 3 different kinds and some small appetizers. Everything was good. Recommended if you are in this area of the city.

A rather large bar with a huge outside terrace allowing a great view on Dubai's skyline (if it's not too hot outside). Great beers and bar type food, try the steaks and the salads. If you want to relax and just watch some sports on the various screens - go for it.

Had a burger here few years ago which was great so went back. This time couldn't sit outdoors due to the heat and was surprised to find that they allow smoking inside the restaurant. This really is terrible because of regardless of the good the stench of smoking spoils the taste

Despite staying at the crown plaza, the hotel joined to the cafe, we were charged for water. The same water that the Crown Plaza gave its guests for free. It even had the Crown Plaza wrapper on it. £4 per bottle of water. When asking to speak to a manager about it he said they are a different brand to... More

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 to go.

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.
