We stopped here a couple of times, not really sure why we went multiple times because it was really nothing special. Got a cheeseburger and the patty was so dry and there was way too many onions. The fries were good though. Service was hit and miss. The guy the first time was nice enough, but we had a woman... More

Safe and friendly. Next to El Timon which has a great happy hour from 4-6pm so get a few in there first. Plus they... More

After being "off the grid" for most of our vacation, my wife and I decided to go to SJDS for the last two nights of our trip. We went to Henry's both nights and had a great time. The bar is right on the beach, and the upstairs patio gets packed around 10:30pm. If you get there early enough you... More

This is a nice view restaurant where it seems everyone comes to meet up. For as much staff as the have working. It is a bit slow to get your drinks and food. But that seems typical for Central America. Happy hours are great prices. About a dollar for a beer. And thirty cent wings. Make this a stop on... More

We had a great lunch here after exploring San Juan Del Sur. I love the location right on the beach and the food was great! It looks like this place is a lot of fun at night too, but we were on the road right after lunch. I would definitely come back here.

We was here in a happy hours. We tried seviche (1 dollar) - it's very good! We also ordered a drinks, it's good, especially wher you order 1 and get 2. Staff is friendly. If you want something to eat and drink at night - that's a good place.

The setting is beautiful, when you can lounge about for the sunset, enjoy a pint and chat with a slightly strained voice to be heard over the mid-00s pop music. However, the staff are incredibly rude and are very pushy for tips. We were trying to watch a match at 8 in the morning, so ordered only coffee and water... More

Went early one morning to watch a soccer match which they were happy to show on one of their four screens upstairs. We didn't want breakfast, only coffees which irritated the staff. There were no other customers in the bar so surely any business is better than no business. At half time the bar staff changed the channel and then... More

This was recommended to us by locals for drinks. We sat next to the beach overview, but switched tables a bit later to be closer to the bar. Its a nice place to go for a drink and dance latin music.
