We are fans of Ribs promotion. All you can eat. However, the restaurant have decreased in attention and food quality; but not the prices.

They keep finding new ways to hit a low on service. Replacing cheap staff with even cheaper staff is a way of maintaining a certain margin I guess.

This location is nicely tucked inside the Intercontinental hotel grounds. There is a big screen for sports events. Sunday and Monday was Mussels night. Delicious

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.
