A great Euro-style pub with decent views and cold beer. Open from midday, unlike most of the competition. Get in there!

This is the most happening bar in waterfront, that served fresh beer and yummy food. Sitting outdoor during happy hour time will give you a marvellous sunset view in Kota Kinabalu (subject to weather) Aglio Olio and their Sheperd Pie is the boom!
