“Relaxed atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

We visited twice during our trip. First for a long lunch - the food was great and service excellent. Second - for the football on a Monday night. There is a real mix of people at this venue. Lads watching the footie in flip flops and girls dressed to the nines in heals. Overall I would say this is a casual venue perfect for a relaxed evening with friends.

“Great Venue for a Beer, Football and Sunshine in your trunks and flip flops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

I have been here half a dozen times, most recently in April 2014 two days running. I am a wheelchair user and taxi's are a nightmare in Dubai. I was able to travel from the nearby Le Royal Meridien hotel via my chair negotiating a few kerbs and one easy road cross on a slip road.

The bar is accessible as is restaurant and big tv viewing for premier league football. There is a disabled toilet, but a 8" step to enter it, kind of weird but that is classic UAE.

The choice of food is good, the lady had the sea bass which looked very nice, I had the fried chicken which was awesome but obviously a dirty dinner. On the return the next day I had a Chicken Caesar from the starters menu, it could of fed two. The lady had prawn and avocado, this looked nice.

My friends had the tapas and that had mixed reviews from them on different elements. Beer is reasonable for Dubai, a bit cheaper than my hotel. 2-4-1 happy hour cocktails were good, but small... the prices included tips which takes out the hassle of deciding on one. Great for lads on tour, equally ok to take the mrs, if she likes football...

“Sports Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

A huge licensed bar with several screens covering the Premiership and all other sports. The food is typical bar meals but well cooked and reasonably priced. The only down died is that smoking is allowed but eh oh!

“Great Night Beach Scene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Visited here twice in one long weekend. It is a fantastic beach vibe. Several levels rolling down to the actual beach where a large DJ stage is set. Super busy drink bars, but they keep up with the orders very well. Stand up shisha available too - always a plus. Great crowd. All good.

“Barasti Dubai ... a Place To drink and Party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

well if you plan to have a romantic dinner or a family reunion, it is definitely not the place to be, but if you want to go out with friends drink dance laugh you get exactly what you want , there is live music plus a beach party with a DJ ,it is a huge place and you can find small bars everywhere so u ll get as much drink as possible ... i have good and bad memories in the place (it reminds me of someone special) but yet it is a pleasant place ... give it a try ... yeah and if it is Thursday night and you plan to go alone or just a bunch of guys, try to go earlier or find yourself a girl so bouncers will not give you a lecture and make you go back home like a loser
