Everyone loves it. Friendly staff and great food. Chef cooks pub grub and takes one away from middle east. The only downer is that it is on Le meridien premises.

Nice food, staff service terrible. Seems that staff like to forget orders or even not bother listening to you. If you can get buy on this then the food was excellent

Where do I begin? The captains arms is in the village of Le Meriden hotel downtown Abu Dhabi. It is without doubt the most warm welcome outdoor harmonising drinking establishment in the country. The staff are brilliant starting with Mayer the leader and charismatic gentleman. Also Rosemond Fernándes alao sluck and composed and the the cool Snedden Rodrigues. Thank you... More

This is a great little place to enjoy a brew and people watch. . We enjoyed the otside bench seats and the inside pub... both offer a good selection of beers... albeit a bit pricey. I found myself going back night after night just to enjoy the setting.

If you want to join a perfect chilling and generous ladies night there's no best place in UAE! Wonderful location on the beach, cool and comfortable, stunning view of Maryah Island with sea/boats/lights, super friendly staff as Mr Pavan and all the others, good cock-tails, amazing music from an always smiling girl...what else? just the perfect evening! :)

The beers good with an extended Happy Hour and the fish and chips are excellent. Only downside was the cigarette smoke, still permitted in dining areas in the UAE. When the weather permits sit outside.
