The Expat Bar

There are a few other places to go, but this is the definitive expat bar of Sanya. It's a regular sports bar with live music most nights. They have a special every day for a reduced price meal with a Tiger draft beer. The menu is fairly large. None of the food is fantastic, but most of it is... read more

This is a western style sports bar serving great burgers and salads (at least that's what we tried). When we say 'great' we don't just mean 'as good as could be expected for a western restaurant in China', we mean great by US standards! Very tasty and highly recommended. Two areas for improvement: greater choice of desserts and people smoking... More

We visited Sanya at the end of our trip so it was safe to say we'd had our fill of asian cuisine. On top of this we had both fallen ill and were after a comforting, simple meal - something that wouldn't challenge our taste buds. I don't want to seem fussy when it comes to eating in other countries... More

A great find. We came to Sanya for 3 nights and spent two at Dolphin! The food and service was fantastic. The staff are welcoming and capable. The food was really, really good, ingredients and flavour both remarkable for a Chinese bar! I would recommend this place - perhaps book a table on Saturday night as it's very busy. We... More

Had two great meals here. First night had a chicken mushroom burger with a drink, which tasted like it could have used a touch more alcohol, but otherwise great meal. Second night had pork ribs. Neither meal disappointed and were delicious. Would have gone back for a 3rd night but decided to turn in early and not do dinner at... More

I actually would like to give this rating a 1, but other than the lack of NO service I like the place. Last night was my 3rd visit to the Dolphin Bar and certainly can make you feel like your back in the good old USA, but I tell you the service last night was actually NO service at all.... More

I was getting very bored with hotel food, so I checked out this sports bar. I was shocked at how delicious the chicken burrito was. Wow! The staff was very friendly, and we enjoyed the special they had on Tiger Beer. I definitely recommend coming to this sports bar when you come to Sanya.

I've spent quite a while in China now... one year in Shenzhen, 3 years in Wuxi, 6 months in Zhuhai, and about 4 years in Shanghai where I currently reside. Granted, Shanghai has a bunch of restaurants and bar/grill type establishments, and most are meh...ok. Therefore, I don't REALLY crave western food like when I lived down south or in... More

Just got back from Spring Festival celebrations in Sanya and this bar was a treat. Ended up going there every day of our stay. The bar is exactly how a sports bar should be, great range on the menu, brilliant offers every day, high quality food and the staff were lovely. Anyone in need of a sporting fix or some... More
