“snack”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

When we arrived at the hotel The Westin Abu Dhabi, this was the only one that was still open to offer some food. The caesar salad with grilled chicken had been served with anchovys and the size, compared to the price, was not worth it...

“Nice”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The hotel bar (similar setting to a quiet British Pub) for the Westin Abu Dhabi, we had dinner here one night and a few drinks while the football was on. The hotel has a happy hour which went down a treat. Service and food was to a high standard.

“Delicious food, excellent cocktail menu and gold course views”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

The menu was bound to suit all tastes and they had a chefs special on offer, which included a drink.
All ingredients felt freshly prepared and the presentation was excellent.
The drinks menu was extensive and there were a number of cocktails on offer - I would recommend the passionfruit sangria!

“Very good happy hour and all foods are superb!”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

This is a great place to unwind (golf or no golf) and have a couple of beers at 1/2 price Saturday - Thursday! Free Internet while you drink and always some great sport on the several TVs located around the bar. If you choose to, you can sit outdoors and watch the golfers drive some balls, entertaining in itself. The food is excellent...great bar snacks (especially the crispy shrimp) and even the main courses are superb. The complimentary bar nuts are simply more luxurious than at any other palce I have been to. However, if you go when it's busy, expect to wait: the wait staff is easily overwhelmed.
This place is downstairs at the Westin Abu Dhabi and worth the trip!
