“Great Bar+Great Food=Great times”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

so this place was the happening spot in san juan del sur, live music several nights a week, great different local bands playing regga and rock classics, pool tables, great outside seating space, cheap beers and massive plates of food, not the best in town but if you looking for a great feed at an affordable price.....many nights of fun and frolics in this bar make sure its on the visit list.

“slow and filthy”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Servers touching money and food at the same time, had to waive for hours before getting their attention, very unprofessional, the girl that served us seemed like she really didn't care. Had a look at the kitchen, it resembled more a filthy bathroom, a sweaty guy inside without covering his head preparing what they dare to call food. The hamburger came after a long wait. A huge hamburger, yes, just the size was actually what they advertise. My friend and I were too disgusted by the sight of the kitchen and the cook that we couldn't eat much, and it also had a funny taste. They shouldn't allow these guys to serve food. The place seems good for partying and drinking at night, but forget about the food!

“good vibes”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

Good vibe, good music, great bar.

Loved the reggae band and danced until 1 a.m. I feel like an expat here, but in a nice way. It's a great spot for a beer and burger.
