Been to this bar on previous visit to Corralejo, but always surprises me how good the music sounds here. Its a Stuffy little bar on a warm night with loads of character and i love popping in to see who's playing round 9 or 10pm and I advise anyone to try it.

We were in Corralejo seven years ago and spent a fair number of evenings here listening to some very excellent acoustic/unplugged, live music so it was a no-brainer that we'd go back as soon as we returned to Fuerteventura. Also nice to see Gary on the bass again too and even one of the barmaids was still there. If you... More

This is a small bar that can become very warm in the evenings due to the volume of people attracted by the fantastic musicians. One visit is never enough

We visited RiB several times this year. As good as last year. But it depends on who is playing. Dave Hedley is just amazing. Good singer and choice of songs. Great guitarist. Recommended. On another night, someone else sang two Donovan songs in one set. We left.

Great music bar, laid back and comfy with a good décor. Drinks and service good. Music was top notch quality. Gets quite full so best to get there early. Definitely worth a visit.

Stayed in Corrolejo for 3 months and went to the RIB frequently. We were never disappointed!! All the musicians are brilliant, playing on their own or in their various combinations!! The banter is good too. The girls behind the bar work very hard and always with a friendly hello and a smile. Gary, Dave, Alan and David and the drummer... More
