Nice place with a nice terrace to take some drinks. Dont expect unique cocktails, just the place to take a beer or some spirits. The food is good and the service is always good. Nice for an after work hang out with the friends.

I think the management trying cut cost on employing more people which results of having extra loads on the employees serving us, delayed orders, unattended, must try to catch the waiter/SS attention at least 5 times cause they are running around like crazy Please do the needful Still waiting

Nice place to hang out with friends for drinks. One of the best in yas island for watching games while drinking. Staff are helpful and attentive. The ambience is good with outdoor seating.

Out of the various bars at Yas, this is still my favourite. The service is consistently good and so is the food with a good choice of international food. This is one place I always recommend and go to when I am back in Abu Dhabi and staying at Yas.

My first night's dinner in Abu Dhabi was had here in the Y Bar. I love my lamb and this place did not disappoint! However, everyone that came into the bar smoked and it seemed like there wasn't enough ventilation for the amount of people (and smoke) present. I watched people come in, sit down - not order anything -... More

Went to the y bar with a group of friends, great selection of food from snacks to main meals, steak came with a selection of salad,mash or boiled potatoes. You can choose to eat inside were there is a pub like atmosphere or sit outside and watch the world go by with a nice cooling fan supplied by the staff.... More
