“Great place to relax and get a good meal and a good beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

I have actually been here 3/4 times now and have enjoyed every occasion, the atmosphere is great, the big mixture of expats and locals is a nice mixture. The staff are very good most of the time but it can get very busy especially if they have entertainment on, which makes running around serving the customers a little slower.
I have only eaten once here and I had ribs, which were great. The food is good quality and pretty good prices compared to other similar establishments and they have a great selection of beers for to sample.
I like this place because whether I pop in for a beer by myself or go with friends it always gives me the feeling of a local pub, with familiar faces and super all round service.

Go give "Fibbers" a go, even for just a couple beers to chew the fat with friends, you won't be disappointed.

“Guaranteed quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

The best place for a bit of craic in Dubai bar none. Great service, great food, great music and a great crowd of misfits and hallions.

“First bite policy”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

I am a regular costumer at Fibbers. However, I only ate there for the first time yesterday. I ordered a burger, but it was inedible as it was extremely rubbery. when I complained the waitress informed me I should have informed me on the first bite. I only have taken 3 bites! I was very unhappy with this unusual policy and would not rush back.

“A Good Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

Great pub food, Great beer a proper pub. Food wise some of the best pub food in Dubai. Full English breakfast is a good one to have if working close by. The Butter Chicken is one of the best around. Fish and Chips and one of my favourites the Sirloin Steak. A good selection of bottled real ale and ciders and fairly good selection of single malts. The beers out of the tap are always on form especially the Guinness. Thursday night is always good when the Paddyman takes the stage. All in all a good little place that's not always easy to find.

“One of the Best Pubs in Dubai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

Fibber Magee's is a hidden gem. Not the easiest place to find if it's your first time there. It's close & within walking distance of the Fairmont Hotel.
The pub itself is quite small and cozy. The service is very good even when it gets busy. The food is the best I have had in a pub and range of beers are good and it always serves a good pint of Guinness.
Last but not least it's the only pub I know in Dubai that appears to not be attached to a hotel, the entrance is on a street corner not through a hotels glitzy reception area.
