I was GRANDPAcking in San Pedro for nearly 2 months. I tried almost everywhere at some time or another ... But the El Barrio became my local; I had many a great time down there. The El Barrio is a Sports Bar with restaurant. Sean, the owner, and his staff are great ... get to know them. On a Monday... More

El Barrio has become one of my favorite hangout places. Friendly poker games 3 days a week and an amazing weekend brunch that is well worth the 40Q. Large beer selection and a staff that remembers your name make it a great place to be any day of the week.

nice atmosphere, a good place to come and have a drink, sit and meet new people, not to crowded not to quiet, just right for my taste.

The new pool table and dart boards are a great addition! The bar is a fantastic place to hang out with friends or meet new ones. This bar is very popular with the expats who live here. Great beer selection and the bar tenders known the town really well. If you need a drink and an idea of what to... More

Stopped by for the Saturday brunch today. The price was good, but the service was terribly slow. Waited for about 1 hour and 10 minutes for simple eggs for me and an omelet for my wife. Had to remind the waitress about our missing toast. During the time we were there waiting, the waitress never asked us how things were,... More

Damn good burger and fries, cheap beers and NFL on the TV. I like to experience local culture when I travel but I also like to chill out with some gringo food every now and then. Place is clean and professional and everything I've eaten there is good.

All this is all good. They also have a popular all you can eat brunch with a mimosa, and even pre-order to go... More

Food is OK, San Pedro has much better restaurants. I'm a fan of dogs and I have a couple, but having them around you while you eat and starring at you waiting for you to give them food, its not fun. While eating a lady had her focaccia stolen by one of the dogs. The owners response was "oh well"

Met some friends for brunch, which is served every Sat & Sun for Q40. Several courses and choices in each, served with unlimited coffee or tea. The last course is pancakes - all you can eat. They also give you a choice of a glass of natural orange juice or champagne. There is a corrugated cover over the garden area... More

V friendly owner who opened the bar at 05:30am for us so we could watch the football. He was so helpful and a great laugh. We had an amazing 'all-you-can-eat' brunch with a complimentary glass of champagne for only 40Q (£4). Would recommend the breakfast to anybody there on a weekend; included a fruit salad, cooked breakfast, and as many... More
