“Awful”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

From an UK pub, quite nice as interiors, was wondering to find some different selection of beers (not the most commercial ones, sold in happy hour wherever in the planet). Since the menu was not that much approaching, I went for a common jalapeño stuffed to have along with a beer. I sent it back cause neither in the poorest supermarket I could find such a shame. Even the service was fair but absolutely faraway from a 5* and especially Le Meridien group should provide! Never again!

“Home from home”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We have been going to the Captains Arms for over ten years now and although we only go twice a year the staff always remember us. We feel totally at home in this bar, food is pub fair but good value for money. They sell Guinness and strongbow on draught and a half decent dry white wine. There is always plenty going on outside with ten restaurants and other bars. The only downside is the smoking.

“Great grub”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Great selection of food, but the selection of beer is a bit limited. Always busy every night I have been in and a nice friendly bunch there.

“Bella serata”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Here you can spend a strange latino's night. The place looks like a south american pub like the one you expect in Carribean area. Good music, good people, good drinks. Don't lose the chance.
