    Great bar/restaurant to hang with locals. While on vacation I came to watch the surfing competition on Saturday pm and ended up staying all night. Great local vibe, live DJs, great food. Check this place out. You'll dig it.

    The ceviche was good, the local beer was cheap. The food was a little on the pricey side so we only ordered appetizers and beers while we watched the surfing competition. The grass backyard was a novelty to see.
