I have always heard great things about this pub at the corner of Hamra street! So after some looking about, I've found it to be Ferdinand's! Ferdinand's is an amazing place to have a quick bite and some relaxing drinks with your work colleagues or friends. Would recommend the Ferdinand and Strawberry goat cheese burgers, they're the house specialty!

Great bar/restaurant. Staff are very attentive and remember your needs on your return. Really polished place and you don't pay a premium either

Good drinks. Happy hour is better prices. However, they took wine off of happy hour special, which is a disappointment since it is so cozy to sit there.

Very crowded. The atmosphere is nice but you get squeezed but your surroundings. You can pass by for a drink.
