From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011

This Irish treasure is the only pub in Dubai that is allowed to sell alcohol independently. Fact. And that’s part of its hidden away charm. Tucked behind the White Crown building on Sheikh Zayed Road, step into its smoky dark interior and you could be in any local Irish pub in the world – part of the appealis it’s not glitzy, stark, new or particularly polished, this is a proper boozer that can shut out the Dubai sunshine as much as it would the Irish rain. The menu reflects this with its traditional pub-grub round up. It’s not gourmet food but satisfyingly large and stodgy. One area where it really does stand out is its fry ups. Possibly the best (or closest to a ‘proper’ fry up) these grease laden affairs come with pork bacon, black pudding and a pint for a ridiculously small sum of dirhams. It might not do your arteries or waistline any good, but we can guarantee it’s a banging start to a Friday. Fibber’s also attracts a friendly crowd – mainly of the older expat variety who can fill you in on Dubai’s older days -whilst you’re taking part in its notoriously difficult pub quiz on a Tuesday evening.

Manager is very unethical, rude and with an attitude! He needs more training for his manners and does not at all know how to deal with the customer! where can you find a manager that preferred to throw the food instead of serving it to the customer and make the customer happy.. we have called before going to this restaurant and said they accept vouchers, then we came sat and before ordering, spoke to the waiters if they do accept vouchers and they said yes and so they took our orders and serve the drinks,, when food is almost ready to serve manager came and said that the voucher is not accepted! what the hell? we could have paid it all without using the voucher but the approach of the manager is totally rude! it doesn't deserve it at all!

Went on saturday night the worst place I have ever been the waiter got the order wrong on how we want meat cooked one was over cooked and the other was under cooked and to top it off food was cold. I asked the waiter and the manager spoke to me said not his problem.
Main issue was with the attitude of the manager who was rude to myself and I also witnessed this with other customers. Other staff were pleasant and helpful
Disappointing experience: Restaurant manager unwelcoming, very sarcastic and rude.
