Assuming this is the Funky Monkey, here are my thoughts. When we were there, the place was deserted. Despite this, it took a good while for our mediocre food to arrive. Maybe this was related to what appeared to be the only employee there leaving twice and returning each time with a shopping bag (our food fixings?). The place is funky-cute, but I would not go back.

I assume this "Monkey's Bar" is referring to "Funky Monkey's" bar and restaurant in Rurrenabaque, so that is what I'm going to review.

We visited Monkey's twice in our short time in Rurrenabaque (in the low season, entering wet season) and we really enjoyed it! Yummy smoothies (hugo con leche) and the best pizza we've had in Rurrenabaque! (We had pizza at two other places in town, which were fine, but Monkey's was our winner! - and we are pizza lovers!) We also had a nice cocktail there at 2 for 1 happy hour (6-9pm). Chilled atmosphere, a Jack Johnson album was playing, decent pool table, and friendly staff. Only downer was no wifi, but hey, it meant we actually talked to each other over dinner :P Definitely recommend for a pizza and a smoothie!

Had heard it was a party place--not the night I was there! Lot of families; no solo travelers. Drinks were OK; nothing special.

Maybe I just hit a slow night?

A very nice bar! Good drinks, good to meet other travellers. I went here before and after the jungle trip, it is nice to share experiences
