It’s a small Irish bar in the same building as the stables. Once you’re inside you could be in any Irish bar in the world, which isn’t a bad thing. Plenty of beers and food to choose from and there was a great cover band...playing when we there. Had a great night.More

Of all the times we have been to Dubai we’ve never been to Fibbers. A friend suggested we all went there for lunch, and so me being me headed straight to Tripadvisor to see the reviews. Well after reading the most wonderfully sarcastic and truthful...replies from the manager who pulls no punches I was 100% in!! I just loved them all and was in tears of laughter! Well what an absolutely lovely place, the staff were just so very welcoming and friendly, they made sure we were comfortable where we sat, how anyone can not find something to eat I have no idea, the choices were great! The food itself was so tasty and potion size plentiful! We enjoyed it so much that we went back again and my husband had the roast belly of pork with a beer for 69dhs! Amazing value. Any disappointments, just one, I didn’t get to meet the manager to thank him for such great responses!!! Maybe next time!!!More

Visited on two separate occasions it’s like waking into a old fashioned bar seemed very popular as busy Extensive food menu ( good old fashioned pub grub reasonably priced ) ensure you have an appetite as there appears no portion control Service is very quick...and staff very friendly and welcoming The bar area has extensive drinks on tap bottle etc ( Guinness chilled most welcome on hot day ) seemed to have numerous promotions each day worth checking website as live music on certain nights The only query didn’t see a price list for drinks the location is tucked away but worth looking as it’s a hidden GemMore

we travelled a long way to find this bar which had good reviews, after much searching (its tucked away in a side street) we arrived an hour before the band started. the food - steak pie (a bowl of tough beef with a poppodom thin...pastry on top) was awful as was the rest of the food. Weare all keen live music people and always travel to listen to local bands,but The band -20th century boys- the drummer is obviously the "boss" - he bang-crashed his way through every song drowning out the decent singer /guitarist to such an extent we had to leave after about 40 minutes - we were amazed the manager of the place didnt tell him how bad it was and to reduce the volume of the drums, surely he can see most people were wincing at his antics , although to be fair he was a decent singer ...maybe they struggle to attract bands so dont want to upset him? Dont make the effort to find - its no worth itMore

This is a legendary place in Dubai and has to be visited at least once. It’s kind of hidden around the back of a hotel, through a car park but when you step inside it’s like being back in Dublin again. We didn’t eat but...we did have plenty of drinks (I’m feeling it right now!) what I do remember was: GREAT music - I mean awesome the fiddle player in particular but the whole band were brilliant Reasonable prices, with the pound/dirham as it is nothing is cheap in Dubai I think the wines were a touch over a tenner a large glass, basically London prices. Great craic - the staff and other guests are so friendly My only criticism is around ventilation as it’s not great we don’t smoke so are quite sensitive to it and got quite a sore throat, I guess it is what it is but no one gets a 10 out of 10 :) Side note I did enjoy reading the managers comments down below, hopefully he’s done with Ozarks by now personally I couldn’t get on with it, Breaking bad however now that’s a different story.More

Love this place. Good ambience, always a good crowd.. proper pub feel.. Did the 200aed promo tonight, unlimited beer and appetisers for 3 hours.. so worth the buck.. Positive points, the promo is great, music is good, crowd is good.. Negative, AC is cold, staff...arent interactive.. kind of like a mc D's feel.. order is taken and that's that. No real guest engagement.. Still one of the spots to see in Dubai if you want that pub feel..More

What a find a really cool bar off the beaten track that serves good beer and excellent food. The bar was full of an after work expat crowd that gave the bar an authentic feel. I had a delicious steak and ale pie and my...wife had jacket potatoe. Both were served piping hot and were excellent. The staff were attentive and helpful but also unobtrusive.
