“happy hour is a joke”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

We went there because of the advertisement of the 50%-happy hour on everything. In the end we ended up paying more than 4 JD for each 33cl bottle of beer. After complaining, we were told that the happy hour is on everything except bottled beer. We checked again with the advertisement, there were no exceptions posted (and I'm sure, if we ordered draft beer, the exception would be on draft beer).
Moreover, the staff was not very friendly at all. He came around every 10 minutes and suggested ordering another bottle.

“Rude and unwelcoming staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Visited twice and the staff were rude and unwelcoming both times. Second time we were refused a drinks menu and none of the prices matched the misleading advertising outside. we left and enjoyed a superb meal at the far more hospitable Q restaurant just up the street.

“A Nice Pub/Restaurant to Hang Out Anytime”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2012

Nice atmosphere, loved the happy-hour and the veranda on the third floor. Good drinks and food.

Hated the concept of bouncers blocking out decent lads who come in without dates! Unless they know you of course! And also hated how it gets too crowded on weekends.

The waiters and bartenders are nice people, loved the Boston Beach.
