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

Once again a superb few nights in RIB when we were in Corralejo in January. First class for chilled acoustic music in an interesting and intimate bar. All musicians were great, including those just guesting when passing through such as Steve the harmonica player. Looking forward to returning next winter.

Attended with friends after looking at some of the great reviews but on the night we went in it was quiet, a lot smaller than I had imagined, someone was strumming a few sounds but we left after one drink.

Hi It's a shame you found the bar a little disappointing and didn’t stick around, the musician was most probably sound checking before the show. The music starts around 9pm and the bar is almost always full by 10pm. We have exceptional alternative acoustic performances every night to a wonderfully appreciative audience. Hopefully you’ll give us another try on your... More

Excellent venue. Varied selection of artists and songs. Exactly what you would expect from a live acoustic venue. Very talented performers. Doesnt always start on time - So what ! Just chill out.

Great bar with fab musicians. Something different every night. We went in nearly every night of our holiday. Lovely and cosy and not commercialised like other music bars. Get there early for a seat as it fills up fast!
