About this business

If you’re on the hunt for beachfront luxury, the Barasti Bar, Dubai, is hard to beat. This stylish venue offers fantastic views, tasty food, drinks and shisha, and it’s the perfect place to meet up with friends and family to generally relax and unwind. Highlighting its quality, it was named Favourite Bar in Dubai at the What's On Awards 2013.
 
Why not kickstart your day with a Barasti Big Breakfast? Served every Friday and Saturday morning from 9am until 12pm, this morning feast includes a host of options, including the Full Monty English Breakfast complete with fried eggs, bacon, baked beans, sausages, black pudding, grilled tomatoes, sauté mushrooms, hash browns, toast and butter.
 
The Barasti Bar also serves a selection of tapas dishes, such as breaded cheese nuggets, sticky buffalo wings and butterfly shrimps. If you’re after something altogether heartier, check out the grilled mains, for example, you can opt for grilled salmon, lamb chops or pork ribs.
 
As well as presenting sumptuous grub to diners, the bar hosts regular themed events. Every Wednesday, for instance, you can indulge in a spot of nostalgia with the ‘Back to the 80s’ night, while Tuesdays are ‘Pink in the City’ ladies’ nights.

I went here last December with my friends and we really liked it actually. They have a huge place for all their customers and the ambiance is really cool. I like outdoor bars and they have these cabanas where you can seat. At that time it was really cold so I'm glad that they provided us these heaters.

They have also these guards everywhere which is good because it means they are ready whatever may happens. The place is pretty secure I guess.

The only thing I didn't like was their service. I think they need to add more people because whenever it is packed already, it will take an hour and a half before you get your order. When it comes to serving for their drinks... no rules at all... it should be first come first serve but... not at all. If you are mean and rude then you will be served first... because I guess they are scared... so we, small ladies get to be served at the very end.

I liked the Ambiance of this place. Tried the Chicken Tikka Wrap .. was sooper Delicious. Really Amazing. Worth the Price. A dish can be shared by 2 people. (Could be a bit too much for 1.. esp if ur calorie conscious..lol). Would recommend this place.

Food awful every single time, but great view and nice for a few drinks! Wish they could just get in a new Chef's and create a new menu, as it would make this place so much better! Instead of going stagnate why not go from strength to strength!

I had never been to Barasti late on a weekend. There are several sections in Barasti which is smart. There's the sports bar section when you walk in, the restaurant, the downstairs bar and dance floor and the beach. It was super busy with all types of people. There was a DJ playing a mostly house music to a crowd dancing on the beach. We ended up eating at the beach bbq/ AED85 for 5 grilled prawns, pasta salad and potato. It wasn't bad at all. Fun night. Also, you can get in wearing flip flops.

Me and my husband love going to this place any day of week. Love having drinks on beach side over looking cruises and other side marina sky scrappers. Drink are little pricy though. Never got chance of enjoying any happy hour. I don't know if they have any. Music is great. Never tried food there. Highly recommended.

The only way here is by taxi and so it is out.....be prepared for a sports crowd, drunken revellers or sheesa wielding types - that pretty much covers it.....that said, it's huge and there's space for all so with decent prices, service and the food's not bad either (expensive for a pub / bar - take vouchers) I still find myself here for a relaxing good fun time

If you want a relapse of your Uni days then Barasti is the place for you. It is one of those hate love relationships I think. I love the place because anything goes and I hate it for the same reason. I think the best time to come is for sun downers on the upper deck and have a quick bite to eat or a snack. When it gets late Barasti just gets sloppy.

I really love the concept and setting, but the smell of beer that overwhelmed my nose as I walked through the area was somewhat displeasing to me. It did not help that along the walk guys came up to me saying really weird, non-nonsensical things. Girls went into bathroom stalls together which I found strange. Overall I was left feeling uninspired and disappointed by the people there. I went with friends and not to meet people, but it just felt like it could be so much more. I mean this is the Marina after all. Maybe I'm just getting old.....but I don't think that's it!

Barasti amazes me. It's always packed. The crowd last night was 80% men - Barasti's nick name is Bar Nasty so that sums up their crowd. They had sports playing on the big screen last night - I'm sure if they had Fashion TV playing the crowd would be different. Something new I noticed is that they have pool tables on the top floor. Playing pool under the starts could be fun. Something I'd like to check out while the weather is cool.

Saif777 I loved your fashion tv comment lol. If people wanted to watch tv they'll stay at home . They can have Sesame Street playing and the bar fights and weirdos will still hang around

Avoid Barasti on a Thursday - Worst place ever.. and the lines..OMW.. the only time i would recommend you Barasti is when you have time to be there by 4pm... nice and easy, at the beach or the pub before its too smoky, drunk and misbehaving expatriates and some unpolite and dusches who think every girl is a call girl..

I would call Barasti a great getaway! It is far from the city and offers amazing music with a great atmosphere. Barasti offers different types of music in different areas and that is what makes it special. The drinks are fairly priced and service is good.

Beautiful ambiance, but during the weekend overcrowded and we weren't satisfied with the food. It was oily and melons in the fruit salad were without taste.

AbuDhabiStu how about all the wasted british people there? you know you love it!

I haven't been to Barasti Bar in about a year and I have read the reviews about this place recently which weren't that good but I feel you got to know what you are getting yourself into if before you come here.

Cons for Barasti Bar: You have to be prepared for a lot of people, slow service, high prices, and if you are a chick maybe some creepy dudes creeping on you.

Pros for Barasti Bar: Some of the best people watching in Dubai ( I mean it's really good, heavy set women in thongs and high heels, guys in biker shorts with pony tails flexing all the time), the food is really good ( have the burger, salmon, calamari....meat grill is also good), the only place that always has a lot of people having a good time all the time, shisha, and only really decent beach bar in Dubai.

So overall Barasti Bar is a good place to come for an after lunch, a couple of beers, and a fun atmosphere.

Perfect for singles looking to meet a girl/guy, terrible for anyone looking to have a nice evening out with friends, I am in the latter camp.

AbuDhabiStu

AbuDhabiStu I would have to also disagree that this is a HORRIBLE place to meet someone of substance...if you wanna hook up with a drunk person and it's already 12am...this is your go to spot though.
