“Best Fish & Chips in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I visit the Captains on my weekend trips to Abu Dhabi. Good pint of beer and definitely the best "original" british fish & chips in the City. Well worth a visit. If you're a Brit, it's got to be on your "do it" list.

“Good Food And A Nice Outdoor Area”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Visited here on a saturday afternoon. Large outdoor seating area in the garden area. Seems to be the place for expats and holiday makers alike for an afternoon drink and bite to eat outside in the sun. Prices were the going rate for food and drink. Food service was a little slow on my last visit but it was quite busy at the time I arrived.
If you are looking for a place with a decent beer garden/terrace in the tourist area of Abu Dhabi this was the best I have come across in my 5 visits to the city.

“Great venue to sit outside with friends”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

The Village from Le Meridien is a must do when you are in Abu Dhabi! Capain's Arms is a nice pub. Sitting outside great when the weather is nice. Didn't eat here, only tried 'Patatje Oorlog', which is a traditional Dutch fast food dish. Amazing to find it on a menu in the Gulf..
