I stayed few nights in Yas island, and this bar is really stunning! Food was delicious and delivered on time. I love their mouthwatering Y-Burger which satisfied my empty stomach. Loving their happy hour promotion till mid night. Staffs are so friendly and will make u feel home. Excellent service provided by Kath who look after me and gave some match tricks so i wont get bored while waiting for my food. Will surely recommend this place to my friends living in Dubai. Thank you to all the Y bar staff. I will absolutely visit this place again!

Dear tonyfreed,

Greetings from Yas Island! Thank you very much for the great review and for sharing your experiences of the Y Bar.

We are glad to know that you thoroughly enjoyed the Burger, we try to make it as unique as possible by using a special bun, a Wagyu cut of beef, great quality mushroom and a notoriously addictive truffle mayonnaise on the side. You can be sure that you will find the exact same burger on your next visit. Having said that, we will introduce some highly satisfying dishes in the coming months.

The team, especially Kath, is most pleased because you enjoyed and complimented the service as well. We are proud of the courtesy and professionalism we provide our guests and make the effort to live up to Rotana's service and culinary standards.

Hope that you will join us again soon,
Cheers,

Nadim El Zyr

I had a great time and enjoyed the atmosphere as well as Kate who was really amazing and after the flaming shot I love it and her. I enjoyed a great time there and never expected to have so much fun after being around about and taking up the sites. I had a really wonderful time and enjoyed everything and really was a pleasure to visit and will be back again. I have to give it 5 plus out of 5 and was a lot of fun!

Had a fantastic evening at Y Bar on Yas. The atmosphere is like no other place in Abu Dhabi. This place will make you feel comfortable for an enjoyable evening of drinks. Kudos to the staff and the positive energy they portray- Anna, Wendy, Padmi, Shella, and Kat. Thanks for the excellent service! Keep up the good work.
