“Good Pub Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Wharf has a nice terrace by the water and as the weather has cooled, we chose to sit outside. We choose the restaurant as we fancied something more akin to pub food, rather than an expensive restaurant. We had Fish and Chips, which is priced reasonable (for Dubai!). The batter was light and crispy and it was very enjoyable.We had the cheapest bottle of red wine at 210 AED, which was also very nice.

The restaurant has quite a lot of tables and it was only a quarter full by the time we left, and I believe it is never too busy. All in all we got what we wanted, and we would go back. However if its chic you want then this isn't the place.

“Wonderful food..................”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We ate here twice during our 7 night stay and the food is simply lovely. The bar has a nice atmosphere and while sports are on the TV screens it does not interfere with your dining experience. (If you don't like football then it might!) Definitely a return visit for us during our next trip.

“Nice place for a beer !!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Described as a typical British bar, and l guess as you can have a beer, watch the footie and get fish n chips it probably is...although the decor does not look like make British bars l have been in..saying that it's OK for a quick drink and maybe a quick meal if you have been shopping or on your feet all day and can't be bothered to go home and get freshened up.

But not the best place for a special occassion

“Nobody their!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

It's a shame because the food here is great but when we dined here last week there was no atmosphere, but the waitress was super as was the crab! It's short of something as they have a sports bar, pool table and better than average food so what is it?
