Superb Atmosphere, very friendly staff and servic3

One Sunny Sunday afternoon, a few weeks ago, we were thirsty more than hungry, and we looked up to the revelers in the Apache and decided we must join in. To my surprise we got a table adjacent to the balcony, and being avid people watchers we were able to watch the throng meander about below. We... read more

Endra is amazing!! We had such a wonderful time drinking our stiff martinis and singing along with owner Endra to classic hits. Small place that just explodes with character.

The martini was excellent, as good as you will find. But I was not happy when I left. The menu listed either House Brand or Name Brand prices. Name Brand was 65 pesos for the 2 oz, and 105 for the 4 oz. I chose a Name Brand 4 oz, Bombay classic. The bill was 140 pesos, and the explanation... More

When we arrived at Apaches's, Endra was all over my injuries bringing me ice packs and bandages and (of course) a drink! She was so kind and caring I... More

What's not to like? Cozy whether you sit inside or out. The pork special on the menu I was looking forward to but we got there very late and it seemed a bit dried out. We had something else later in the week but for the life of me I can't remember what it was (after 4 Margaritas!) Strength of... More

Endra and Mary-Ann do such a good job welcoming old friends back. Andres, Freddy and Chuy are lovely guys. This is one of the great bars of the world - I come from England to be here! Gracias amigos!
