Set on the ground floor of the Hotel Intercontinental this is a great 'Belgian themed' bar (I think you might be able to work that out from the name!) with inner and outer seating areas. Get's a bit crowded at weekends but a bit quieter mid week (in our experience). Great selection of beers including Hoegarden, Stella, Kwak, Duvel etc.... More

The café is downstairs next to the Italian restaurant. It has brought all the good elements from Belgium to this place: great beers, excellent dishes.

Wished we had known about this in advance it would have been better to actually stay in this hotel for the F1. We visited the Belgian Beer Cafe on both days of the F1 weekend, love Belgian beer and the bar food was great too.

Nice location by the sea, view to Etihad towers. Perfect offer of all i can eat mussels. But. First pot is full as much as the mussels fall over. Second pot is little more than 1/2 full, third 2/3 empty. Didnt try more but i guess it ends up with a poor single baby mussel at the bottom. The furniture... More

One of the few good pork places in Abu Dhabi, nice sausages with generous portions. Service was a bit slow but understandable as most customers were outside and we were the only diners inside so we were a bit out of the flow. Great comfort food!

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.
