Time Out Says

There are plenty of bars in Dubai that offer great views of the city. After all, the skyline is pretty much stunning no matter where you are. However, most of those venues are swish, swanky high-end lounges, where you have to make a reservation in advance and dress the part to get in.

Now, we love those places, but every now and then we want something a bit more casual, where we don’t need to worry about our outfits and can just rock up whenever we want.

And if that bar also has a games console where we can pit our skills against our pals, then all the better.

The Backyard does all of that, and is a very pleasant place to spend a relaxing hour or two with your mates. Eats come from a food truck and are good value. Daily specials tend to be Asian-style dishes, while the main menu includes burgers, light bites and some more healthy vegetarian dishes.

We love the calamari, which comes in a huge portion and is enough to share. The spiced batter makes a change, too. The fish burger comes with good fries, though we’d like a bit more seasoning in the batter.

But this is somewhere we can see ourselves spending a good few afternoons.

The Bottom Line

Casual, fun and good value.
