I had the Ribs which was more than enough to eat, not only was the meal delicious, the entire atmosphere was good. The DJ was playing some nice... More

The bar has a relaxed atmosphere with ample outdoor seating, TV's indoors and a good choice of food & beverages. The staff serving on my visit was at best disinterested, no greeting, no recommendations, she did not inform me it was happy hour (I only found this out from my bill). This was such a shame as the food is... More

Not a bad choice of food, bit English pub style meal. Generous portions and happy hour on offer with the drinks. Sadly the no smoking ban does not exist in Abu Dhabi so I didn't enjoy my meal being surrounded by people smoking and there did not appear to be a no smoking eating area. Staff service ok, wouldn't say... More

Great place with an outdoor terrace but if you could order your drinks at the bar inside, the service would be better than sitting waiting for 20 minutes trying to catch someone's eye before they actually acknowledged you. When it's not quite so busy the staff are fabulous and very attentive. Happy hour well worth it and you can take... More
