We visited this bar out of nostalgia as we had first come in here with friends and family 12 years ago. To our surprise the guy playing the guitar was the same as all those years ago. I agree with other reviews that the music is a bit repetitive if you have seen him before but he is very good(... More

Been many times on previous holidays and always good. It can get busy but the service is excellent. Either go to the bar yourself or order at the table. Staff walking around all the time so use them. They are friendly as well. Live entertainment is good and will suit most tastes.

A decent place to visit once as the second time will be like Groundhog Day! There are only so many times you can listen to Brown Eyed Girl and American Pie(the long version!) without losing the will to live. The worrying thing is that if you are looking for any sort of entertainment in Playa Blanca you are pretty much... More

I've had the odd drink here in the past in the evening because the entertainment is good. However on a visit on a busy lunch time not so. Eventually got drinks, but having waited ages for our food, had to ask where it was. On arriving, the chips were Luke warm, limp and tasted unpleasantly fatty. I would not eat... More

It wasn't busy when we were in there but for a beer with mates it has a very good view out to sea. Decent place to watch a football game as well.

Met some friends for a drink. Place was very quiet so they started to clear up around us. I think they wanted us to leave so they could have an early night. Rude staff, never again.

Visited a few times during our stay on each occasion the cabaret & craic were awesome. Friendly bar staff, not the cheapest bar in town but arguably the busiest.

Nice bar, super views from the bar, well worth a visit, we called in before getting a taxi back to our hotel. Unable to comment on evening entertainment as we called in at tea time. Will be back!🍻
