Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

The food on the menu is just lush. There's something for everyone and the staff are very friendly and tentative. You can also watch football, rugby, baseball or whatever's on at the time without it being too intrusive. Great bar!! 👍🏻

This place has a birds eye view of Burj al Arab and can really boast friendly service with a smile... not a fake one but a real one.... as the word 'real' seems to be used rather a lot these days!

I was in D & A on April 11th, 2017 evening for a drink because I had a meeting later in the lobby with one of my long time friend. Since I had reached early I thought to spend some time in this place where I normally dine at least once in a month along with my Emirati Sponsor. We... More

Set in the most amazingly stunning location the D & A manages to create a totally relaxed and friendly atmosphere in this 'sports bar style' bar where like minded guests and families can enjoy sport, views, friendly chat and good puby food served by willing and knowledgeable staff. Thoroughly recommend for all when relaxed, pub style dinner is all that... More

Tuesday night we decided to have dinner here before heading to the Uptown Bar on the 24th floor. Decided to sit outside on the terrace with the Burj al Arab as the view. Very busy but we managed to get a table. Not an extensive choice on the menu but we opted for roast of the day x2 - beef-... More

We only called in for happy hour drinks. The staff were attentive and friendly. The bar itself was very lively. This wasn't the first time of visiting and we would call in again if we came back to Dubai.

I came here a couple of times in June to eat with friends. There was some sort of football tournament on and this is where they chose to screen it, so the atmosphere was somewhat loud and raucous at times. The food was very good, though as we had to eat outside both times, the heat somewhat dampened our appetites.... More
