Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I love the ape. The best family out there. Jose has the best service and he will make sure you get everything you need. Everyone should go here.

Amazing selection of drinks and the food was awesome too. We both got the chicken sandwich and it was great - much larger portion than we were expecting! The atmosphere is also awesome - very chill and fun place to hang out!

Avoid this place. We ordered some starters and a burger and the food never turned up. The waiter then acted dumb, when it was a case of laziness. Lazy and nasty staff, please stay away.

Our family has so much fun at the Ape Bar for dinner. We had drinks, appetizers, and fish and chips. Everything was so good. What made the experience extra special was the staff. They made us feel so welcome, more like family than tourists. The...music was great, and we enjoyed just hanging out and enjoying the view from the balcony. It was an excellent experience, one you don't want to miss.More
