In the winter this is the pub I like to drink at. You can sit outside and overlook the Creek whilst selecting from numerous beers. If you go during happy hour it's even better :)

A cold german beer overlooking the creek, shimmering lights in the distance. I personally think inside is a bit 'drab'.. .probably more suitable for a group of men (there were plenty). Outside it's one of the best spots in Dubai. Would definitely recommend this place if your hotel is nearby or you've just done something in deira or the creek.... More

Food was good as were the drinks. Had a great night (x 4). The location has a reasonable view across to the Burg Khalifa (at some distance) but (outdoors' area) was warm enough with appropriate clothing.

On the Creek with great views. Burj Khalifa dominates the skyline viewed from the outdoor terrace. Satisfying selection of food and drink. Can get lively at certain times. A popular venue and deservedly so.

Dubai's original Belgian Beer Cafe assures its visitors an authentic experience of an olden day bistro from early 1920s Belgium. Old fashioned beer taps, imported memorabilia and antique floor tiles line the restaurant giving it a warm, rural and lived-in feel, which you are sure to appreciate while enjoying the wide range of Belgian beverages. The authenticity also spreads to the kitchen, where hearty favourites of the homeland, such as the signature "Moules-frites" (mussels with fries), can be found.
