“Lady manager, easy with the arrogance”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I will not even go on to the positive, as other reviews have exhausted on it.

Last time i was here was on Easter weekend. I ordered double single malt whiskey, one white wine, 2 beers n food. Shock on me, my whiskey and the wine were served in plastic cups. So, we politely requested that for the wine and the whiskey we would need glass. Shock on us, the supervisor was rude and said he can refer us to the lady manager. Expecting a better approach, we agreed for the manager to come.

Dude, she came stared at us bluntly and said she didn't want her glasses broken that's why we had to use the glass. One thin is that her attitude was clearly ......"i don't need you too much. if you like you can bounce...." and she walked off. My problem with this is, Forty thieves is supposed to be a classy world class beach bar. Their prices too conform to international standards. Not cheap. Why then, do you want me to hold you in high esteem while you disregard me as your customer. Surely, wine, single malt whiskey? On a plastic cup?

By this time the food had arrived. We refused to eat, and we left her, and her beach bar in peace.

Only to go and enjoy peace and serenity at Nomad beach bar.

“Where locals and tourists mix”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

It's a nice bar, quite big, lacks music though. the snacks I had where not good. The prices are fair. It's on the beach, so the view is perfect.
