“Wonderful View!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

My husband and I had early evening drinks at Barhi Bar in April 2014. While the place was a bit hard to find in the maze of the surrounding hotels and Souk Madinat, it was worth the trip. I had made a reservation well ahead of time so they had reserved a table on the outdoor deck for us. We had an absolutely fantastic view of Burj Al Arab and the nightly light show put on over the "sail" of the Burj. One of the best views in the city I think. The patio also overlooks the canals of the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel, which is lovely. The drinks were really good and inventive (some different things than we have seen elsewhere). The staff was very friendly and helpful as well. We highly recommend Barhi Bar for a relaxed night with interesting drinks.

“Iconic views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This is the perfect spot for that iconic view of the Burj.
The drive into the hotel is always a magnificent display of awe for tourists and guests. The bar is usually fairly quiet and service is usually very good.
One of my favourites, and must-see venues for my guests.

“I love this bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This bar has to be one of the most romantic bars I've ever been to. The view of the burj al arab is amazing and the drinks choices are great. I will definitely be returning when I'm back this year :)

“Watch out when ordening bottle of wine”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

We ordered an expensive bottle of wine and they tried to give us an already opened bottle!!!!

My boyfriend saw the bartender put the screwcap on the bottle. Luckily he also noticed that the bottle was not totally full. We found it really unbelievable that they did this! We dine out many times and never (luckily) have had this experience before. This is fraud! But the story even gets better....
After we refused this bottle we got a new/closed one but the bartender was clearly and visible not amused. During our meals we wanted to order an extra bottle but we were told that the bottles were sold out. After we refused an other kind of wine, all of the sudden they found an extra stock of the wine we were drinking. What a coïnsidence!

Although the food was good (more fingerfood than restaurant food) and surroundings were nice, we felt like we were being fraud. Such a bad experience!
