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

I was at this busy bar on Friday and the food was amazing, I had the ribs which was very satisfying. The service was quick and the servers were all friendly. A young African man (James) came to introduce himself as the manager as he chat us up. He cracked some funny jokes and wished us to enjoy our evening... More

Met some family and friend here for food and drinks. The menu was good and it didn't take long for the dishes to come out. It took time to get the attention of the waiting staff though when we wanted another drink and also to clear the table after we had finished our food. Steak and Guinness pie was very... More

What was good about this place... Possibly the location but stills in far better. The menu is limited and the service is TERRIBLE!!!!! The serving sizes are disgustingly small and we were all very dissatisfied. I do not recommend.

I prebooked a table of 6 outdoors for 730 on Thursday January 19th. I called 3 days in advance and was told that normally they dont do reservations but that they were trialing this new service and took my booking. Upon arrival at 7.10pm the outdoor security looked at us as if we were aliens. Not a good start. There... More

To be honest, it's decent. That is the only word that could describe it. It's always full, therefore the service is not the best. Atmosphere wise, we were there when the olympics were airing, so everything revolved around it. For the proximity of the rooms and the decor, it's a nice place, worth visiting, though it might not really suit... More
