Came here on a Thursday night and the place as packed outside. Managed to find a table outside and it took about 25 minutes to get served (after getting up and speaking with a server three times). It was a great party atmosphere. Live band, dancing and cold beer. We ordered a variety platter to snack on. It was typical... More

We spent two pleasant evenings in the beer garden whilst on holiday here. A reminder of warm summer evenings at home in the midst of Abu Dhabi. Enjoyed the live music being played.

It was a good place, the drinks are good. The burger is nice, the chips are not that good. Seemed like frozen and not fresh chips. The fish and chips needs improvement. :) But the place and drinks are fine. As well as music selection.
