O´learys @ Malmö Entre´

Lately we have been observing an increment in the population of "Sport bar" restaurants. Not only, they usually belong to chains. This is the case, for example, of O´learys.
The advantage of such a place is that there is for sure a lot of space, if you are going with a big group of people they are quite flexible in order to accommodate everyone and offer some "package" meal. This usually includes also some activities and at O´learys in Malmö there are a lot of options, since there is a bowling connected to it.

Said this, if one is into beer, watching sport, doing something with a bunch of friends, this is a very good place to be. But if one is expecting to eat something decent, he should look somewhere else.

I ended up at O´learys few months back, with my previous colleagues, as a goodbye activity. It was nice to meet them all there and it was nice to play a bit of bowling with them, although I am not very good at it.
Pity though that since I am not into beer or watching sport, I was more interested in the food and that was a big disappointment.
Afterall, it is not very complicated to prepare a burger with some french fries, as they do in many other Sport bars, but it seems this was a very difficult task for them.
For how cosy it was to get the food in a little basket, the amount of french fries was ridiculously small and the burger was soggy and not tasting anything special. I think that if we would have been eating at Max it´d be better. But of course, these kind of places are more about the "experience" than the food and when people have been drinking a couple of beers or more, they probably are not paying attention at what kind of food is really reaching their belly.
Still, I am not sure this would have happened in other countries: I still believe that it would have taken so little to have a better food experience, but still that was a nice evening and I guess that is what they are trying to march on :)
