Drinks and service was good, not a lot of choice on the menu for a bar snack but then I am fussy I like plain food. Pub surrounding no need to dress up.More

Lovely outside seating area and indoor cool bar area. We did not eat here, even though it was part of our package, as Mussels are not liked. Great place to meet up and chat, enjoy people watching and mellow out.More

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.
