They say size isn’t everything, but with the longest bar in Abu Dhabi (a stately 26m, no less) Stills is clearly giving it a go, puffing out its chest like some proud, indignant peacock. Certainly, the giant Victorian mirrors provide plenty of preening possibilities. The classy interior has a kind of slick Manhattan bar feel to it, while the revamped outdoor area is one of the coolest places on Yas Island to dine and drink al fresco. The quality of food is, on the whole, excellent. Expect classic bar food like burgers, steak and mains such as lamb shoulder, fish and chips or bangers and mash. We’re fans of the classic rhubarb crumble, too. If you’re heading here for live sport and a pint, order from the snack menu, which includes the usual snack platters, nachos, calamari and chicken wings, but also some slightly more refined and unique options like smoked salmon croquettes or the mini fish and chips. The cuisine isn’t particularly refined, but when it comes to bar dining, hearty and tasty fare is often what you’re after – and that doesn’t get much better than at Stills.

The all you can eat Mussels offer on Mondays is just un-beatable!

Very bland and tasteless food. Music too loud to hold a conversation.

We went on a thursday night for Ladies night! The place was full, that meant the service was extremely slow, the food was average, some dishes were OK, but nothing WOW. The ladies night is a great idea, but they need to sort out the service.

It is a great place... but for 26mt long bar, Stills needs more staff, specially during Thursday night when they host the Ladies night, a very nice concept, because next day is Friday ;) !! Thumbs up for the idea!!!
