Great beer garden, great beer, great location

First, a mea culpa. I reviewed the Yacht Club and misnamed this place. No matter, after dining at the Yacht Club, we passed away a very pleasant evening with after dinner drinks in the outdoor garden. So relaxing to sit back and be attended to by polite and friendly staff who were eager to... read more

We always go to the Belgian Cafe when we are in Abu Dhabi, but couldn't believe this was the same place, the service was very chaotic and the staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. When we asked for bill which took along time to come it took three attempts to get it right, the staff didn't know... More

I have been on holiday at the Intercontinental and enjoyed the evenings outside also getting into contacts with locals. Service s great, but can get busy when weather is not too hot.

Gotta try the garlic cream muscles, they are fantastic. Try to sit outside if the weather is good, great marina view.

This is a lovely place to sit outside in the evening and I thoroughly recommend you have at least one drink there just for the lovely evening air. However, service is a bit chaotic and range of food and drinks is not great and it is not cheap. Location outside though is really lovely.

We dined here on a Monday night when it is unlimited mussels for 138 AED. The mussels were great and came with a side of fries however by the time we were served we were too exhausted to have very many. After a long day at work the last thing we wanted was to have to wait for an hour... More

Good place to watch sport live. We sat outside in this occasion where there was a big screen available, if one required. Enjoyed my beer but thought my Chicken dish was tasteless. My wife did enjoy her steak. I think this venue is over priced for what is served compared to other venues. I suspect more people attend this venue... More

Good range of beers but pricy. Food expensive and average. Lively spot next to marina but more should be made of the outdoor area at night to show the views. Slow service at times. Very popular.

First out door table covered with ants. Second table, the service was extremely slow with only one server on this week night. Quite busy. Waited at least an hour for the main course. Always had to ask for service, they never came to the table without a prompt. Disappointed since we've been here a few times. This was quite bad.
