We stopped at Yas Island Rotana Hotel, therefore an obvious choice to visit. Service was swift, staff were pleasant. A relaxed atmosphere, not fussy in any way, simply a place to meet up with friends, colleagues, partners, to enjoy a few drinks, and catch up.. Worthy of a visit for sure!

As usual the Rotana service is poor, far below the UAE standards. Went there for a few drinks with my wife. Waited for about 15 min before being attended to although it was pretty empty that night.

We had a few drinks in the bar after Fridays GP practice. Nothing special about the bar that would draw you back. Staff are friendly and helpful but nothing really special.

Takes the cake in absolute worst service we've ever experienced! Surreal! Ignored after many attempts to order drinks when we first arrived. The venue was empty and many attendants passed us.

I stayed at Yas Island Rotana for 4 days and enjoyed it. It was only at the last evening I tried the food here and that was 3 days too late. The tacos with chili con carne is really great, enjoyed it much and can be recommended :-)

Dark and no escape from smokers. They are allowed to smoke everywhere inside and out. Even while eating, smoke was blowing over us from 3 tables down. Waste of time going to hairdressers that day as I had to wash my hair as soon as I got home to get rid of smell.

We've been there many times. It's a nice bar in Yas Plaza. Service and food are good. I prefer Stills bar at other hotel... however, Y Bar is on my list for bars in Abu Dhabi. Cheers,
