We were served by Kadek throughout our trip to the Intercontinental hotel and the care, attention and service was first class! His smile is infectious and his warm personality is amazing! For this reason we always return! And yes... the beer is also great!More

We visited the place and had a beer on the bar outside area. Service was bit slow maybe since the place was packed. Had 2 beers for 80 dirhams. It is a place to watch sports mainly.

Good selection of food based on Belgium hence mussels etc along with a choice of Belgian beers. Food was good but came a little quickly so it felt that the staff were rushing you through your meal.More

The choice of Belgium beers is amazing with half a dozen on tap. The specialties are the mussels of course. They're very nice but very pricey, 120 AED and more. What really killed the experience was the noise level. You can hardly talk to each...More

There is a ladies night in one of the other restaurants on Sundays, I think it is called Biblos which is just past the yacht club on the hotel marina

Description
Since its opening in 2009, Belgian Café Abu Dhabi has been the city's leading restaurant amongst locals, expats and tourists offering the best of Belgium. Fresh mussels, chunky frites, Belgian waffles and exclusive Belgian beers served up in a classically European setting. The Belgian Café is a little piece of old Brussels right in the heart of Abu Dhabi. A clear favourite to unwind after a busy working day or start your well deserved weekend, the Belgian Café terrace serves up for any occasion. Add to that a marina view that never disappoints.
