This great pub is my go to place to enjoy a cold pint and great pub fare. The evening Food service manager is extremely professional and efficient and his staff are very attentive and always happy to serve. All in all and excellent experience every...time I frequent this establishment and you can’t beat the view. Well done !More

Been here a few times now and like the atmosphere /decor etc but the food is not good, We have tried a few dishes which ranged from OK to pretty awful. We found the staff and manager to be very good but the chef /food...is really letting the place down.More

They let the decent managers go and good bar staff. Gone really down hill in the last week. Expect slow service and a bad attitude when asking for service

Before we ordered, we asked if entertainer vouchers are accepted. The waiter confirmed. When we got our bill, we were told that the policy changed ??? We were not served the best food nor provided at par customer service. The least we could get is...be able to avail the offer which is supposed to be valid. I can understand if it's a holiday and they don't accept vouchers or deals. But it is Ramadan.More

Although food was good, atmosphere was great, service was slow, they had split our bills without informing us and worst we found out upon paying that our entertainer vouchers were not valid anymore, making up silly excuses that a new promo will be up the...next day and that the server only found out then because he is a temporary hire, when we clearly asked upon ordering.... SHAME ON YOU! Who runs a business like this? We felt cheated after our good night turn sour=(More

We arrived to Barrel12 @ 10:40pm, they told us that last food order was @ 10:30 in spite of the place closes @ 12:00, the outdoor terrace was totally closed while we are in the best time of the year, I believe the staff is...leading the place to bankruptcy, I hope the owner can contact me, I am willing to buy the place & run it as it should be.More

Situated on the palm, with a great view and atmosphere, with an awesome outside seated area, which is perfect for the cooler months. Lots of parking (free) or easy access if walking or getting a taxi. Drinks and food are well priced and the food...is delicious. Happy hour is always great 😁. They have foosball and a pool table where customers can play for free, which is a bonus. The staff are friendly and look after their customers. Plenty of tvs to watch all the sport that is playing simultaneously. I love being a regular at barrel 12. PS bring back the PlayStation and fifa 😜 ha haMore
