The bar is cool and seemingly a high-end bar but that's just it, it's okay, after one drink we left already. The bar is a little quiet to start with, maybe we came earlier.

Great to sit outside in the evening having a shisha, limited food choice available. Could do with more bar snacks and sharing plates. Most people go for shisha and a drink and are not looking for complicated menus. Also nearing closing time we had the lights switched off and waiters hanging around to clear the table. I won't rush back

This place use to be one of Abu Dhabis happening places, unfortunately this isn't the case anymore. they have a very tacky ladies night on Wednesdays where women are dressed like they are going to prom, it's really kind of sad.... The food is all right, the portions are very small and the prices are not fit for the portions.

I've been to the Tuesday Sushi Night at the Yacht Club twice, and I plan to go again tonight. It is without a doubt the best sushi I've had since being in the UAE. I've dined at several other sushi restaurants, and no one compares. If you love sushi, don't think twice, head over to the Yacht Club on a... More

The all you can eat sushi buffet on Tuesdays at the Yacht Club was exceptional. The variety and quantity available was amazing for the price. There were loads of standard dishes like nigiri, California roll etc, but also new ones which I'd never tried. wagyu beef was seriously addictive. The venue itself was really cool with upbeat lighting and music.... More
