Variety of food: The amount of dishes on the menu is reasonable and represents traditional British and Irish bar meal fare, but diners are restricted to just one plateful.
Best dish: The Irish breakfasts, with sausages and bacon aplenty, are doled out by the armful.
Quality of food: Top-drawer pub food. Burgers are juicy and thick, the Irish stew filling and tasty, and breakfasts are cooked
Layout/presentation: Food is served to order and drinks are brought to your table.
Atmosphere: Traditional lively pub feel. McGettigan’s is a popular starting point for Friday drinkers lining their stomachs.
Setting: Brunches are served indoors in the Irish pub, which is surprisingly well laid-out and aesthetic (i.e. non-Irish).
Value for money: Food-wise, the single serving is among the worst value of all the Friday brunches. The value comes in the drinks. Three drinks of beer, spirits or wine and a good plate of food easily justify your Dhs99.
Entertainment: A live singer/guitarist belts out '90s rock hits and might even take requests.
Service: Waiters bring out your dish promptly and are always on hand to top up your glass.
Dhs99 per person (with three house drinks). Fri noon-6pm. The Bonnington Hotel, Jumeirah Lake Towers (04 356 0600).
