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

This is a regular haunt for ex-pats. The service here is first class with really attentive bar staff that keep you topped up with bar nibbles throughout the evening. The drinks are not over priced and the food is excellent for a pub. It does get a bit smoky inside as you're allowed to smoke in there and as a... More

Since this is such a ex-pat meeting zone, be prepared for lots of cigarette smoke and loud obnoxious people. Of course, it depends on the day you go, like anywhere else. If there is a football game, baseball game, futbol, hockey, race, cricket or anything of the sort, you may be driven out by the thundering noise. Additionally, when crowded,... More

This is a nice bar that offers relaxing air conditioned seating inside and a nice patio outside. The food is excellent and the wait staff attentive. We have been there a few times and the only thing that bothers me is people smoking. Good pint, the steak and Guinness pie is great. Also has a well established soccer (non rowdy)... More

My friends and I were very excited to visit Y bar for ladies night as we all commented how lively the bar always looked. After research we realised there were many deals (including ladies nights) available. We decided to venture out on a Thursday night for ladies night.... Only to be met with criticism and judgement by the sour-faced bar... More
