This cosy chrome-filled space has a great selection of Belgian drafts, and some truly unique Belgian eats as well. Meatballs, mussels and some authentic Belgian fries make BBC (as it’s known) a memorable spot for noshing.

This has to be one of the best views in Dubai across the Creek to Downtown. The staff are terrific and really go out of their way to make people feel both welcomed and valued. The food is consistently good and in decent portions for the hungry! The selection is also fantastic and I love eating here with friends watching the sun go down. Try the mussel pots and home made bread or the Ostend stew, wicked.

I love this place! it has such a warm atmosphere, very nice for relaxing on a thursday night with a couple of friends, although it tends to get very crowded during the weekend. and the music is sometimes a bit too loud for comfort. Nevertheless, great food and amazing beer will tempt you to come back for more

Wonderful brunch with a great artist,Marc is his name i think. We were 8 people and service was swinging. We got served quick and was very tasty. The manager is really a pro,he took our order food and drinks-full table without writing anything down! Impressive! The live station with the waffles are the best and the chefs are very friendly! The best brunch in town for sure... Will come back really soon!

The place is nice but the service has changed since few weeks. We used to go there after work often for drinks and food during the last 3 years.

The beer is still OK but the food changed. The steak is getting smaller than before and there was a time when we have been served bred (incl.) before the main course. Well...and as an excuse for a small steak we have been showed the menu that there is not mentioned any weight...true...and to get a beer free as an excuse is not ok since I can pay on my own for the beer but I paid for the steak and I wanted to get what I pay for!!

We are prepared to pay high prices for good food. For good food but we can expect the respective value for the money.

Well, I hope this change is not because of a change in the management of the bar!

Please try go back to the good service you had the years before if not you will have to close the bar sooner or later!!!
