“Very lively!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Drunk and ate here several times over a couple of weeks!
Evenings get quite loud and lively with live music!
Good selection of drinks and brands, cocktails were always very good!
Pizzas were among best we have had and good to go somewhere that had chilli oil!
Sharing board for two was great and you honestly do not want anything else with it! Very good and we thought we was in Italy,

“Worth Forsaking The All-Inclusive”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Great bar on the plaza with the added bonus of lovely food, great music and terrific service. If you're on Sal it is well worth walking or getting a local taxi to drop you off for the evening even if it means forgoing the all-inclusive at the hotels.

“Great Atmosphere”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Busy, local cafe bar/restaurant on the square or plaza as the locals know it. Great live music at night with free popcorn and wifi. I recommend the margaritas, they are great, even though they are not on the menu. Definitely visit if you go to Sal.

“Service poor when management not there”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

A really fun place to go normally with live music & dancing. Unfortunately as with most places, when the Managements away, the cats do play. My partner & I sat 10 mins at the bar waiting to be served whilst 1 member of staff was texting on his mobile, 2nd member was making cocktails so obviously busy, 3rd member sat on chiller talking to 4th member of staff. Not impressed.
