Best known for an impressive assortment of imported beverages the BBC can also boast an excellent selection of nibbles to try as you gaze out over the creek from the busy outdoor deck.

Even on a weekday this place had most tables outside occupied. The weather was nice and the view of the creek, great. Drinks served. Ordered fried shrimps for starters followed by medium rare tenderloin steak while my wife had the Atlantic salmon. The shrimps could easily be shared by 2. Though we were sated by then we managed to savour berry waffles with cream and a ice cream which was a very nice finish to a great evening.
Service is good though I feel are overstretched.
Total amount Dhs 370.

We had been there several times in the past and ordered the fried mussels, it was our 1st wedding anniversay so we wanted some more of those fried mussels, upon arriving we were told the non smoking section upstairs was closed so we had to sit in the smoking section which reeked of smoke odor. apparently the fried mussels are no longer served there so that was a big dissappointment as that was the only reason we went there. the tea was terrible we finally ended up having starter courses as are main menu choice since the fried mussels were not available. the waitress and service was superb however the cost of what we ordered was on the high side, needless to say we will not be visiting that establishment any longer.

This place was almost full when I came here last night with a waiting time for getting a table outdoors. Great buzz and feel to the place. Great views of the business bay bridge and the serene waters from the verandah.
Hoegarden beer came served in a huge glass. The sweet taste at the corner of my mouth left me wondering if it was the beer or the mouthwash. Fried shrimps for starters which had about 10-12 pieces of good medium sized shrimps served with tartar sauce. Apart from the fact that it was batter fried it was rather good and filling. A pot of mussel in white wine and garlic was served thick cut fries and mayonnaise. It is a lot of mussels to eat at one go so I suggest it be shared and an extra dish ordered if needed. Also I felt that at Dhs 160 it was steep.
Overall a fine experience and with a great atmosphere with lots of waiters moving around busily but ask for something and it they'll promptly get it.

By far the best brunch in town in terms of Food vs Price.
They have a fabulous Cheese bar, quite delicious selections, included in their brunch which already includes most items form their menu as well!!
The best Waffles also that's for sure!
They even let you order additional drinks during a brunch before you even finish the drink you have in front of you! Awesome!
I recommend this brunch quite strongly, i've done several times myself, & i will always go back!
Even on a regular day, Mussel Pots & Cherry Beer?? Yummy!!
