“A Great Night Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

We went to Brew on a Saturday night. As was expected the place was heaving. Good sign. The service was very attentive and knowledgeable. The menu is excellent and covers most tastes. I chose a steak, which was excellent. My only disappointment was my desert. I ordered the Panna cotta, an interesting combo of Panna cotta, strawberries and Balsamic reduction. All the parts went well together. The gripe was the Panna cotta. Way too much gelatin. Oh and I thoroughly recommend the tree tomato (tamarillo) Mary.

“Good Ambience, Good Music, Good Crowd.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I love this place as the crowd is good and mature, the Dj really knows to read the crowd and play appropriate music. Happy Hour starts from 5pm-7pm and you get a free beer or Mojito with every one you buy, thats a BOGOF. Prices are a bit on the higher side though.If you need some finger food, try the BIG Five Burger or their calamari. Yummy! All in all a very nice experience, wouldn't hesitate to go back there anytime. Their service is excellent too, even if they have a busy night.

“Over-rated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Mainly expatriate crowd who cannot dance. Instead, go to a local club and experience real rhythms and dancing.

“Not a bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This is an upscale bar and resto that brews its own beers. The balcony is packed with young moneyed locals on weekend nights, and very noisy. Had a steak in the restaurant, a small but sylish, modern venue behind the bar. The food was pretty good, nothing extraordinary, but they seem to try hard. Service was good, and food came very quickly. Very good selection of wines, including by the glass.
