The drinks were good but a little weak and overpriced. I loved the feel of the place, not a dance club like the place across the street, more like a lounge/club. They still had pretty loud music, but you could chill on a couch with a drink and have a conversation. The food was really the highlight. I think we... More

I happened to be walking by with my wife and heard the music (Tuesday night) from outside. They have a great tropical vibe, $10USD for a mojito, not the cheapest but it's not expensive either. The music was great, they had a dude mixing live some "Acapulco 60's" like tunes.

As a vegetarian myself I ate delicious rice and soy beans. The yakimeshi was so good (huge but really good) and my family ate delicious fish. I was so full... More

Drinks are great, not cheap but you can have a good time specially cause the music is not too loud unlike the place across the street which can leave you deaf and can't talk between eachother.

We visited here for a change as our hotel whilst an elegant five star affair was top notch we felt we wanted to let our hair down a bit. A lucky find whilst wandering around, the eclectic 1950's decor appealed to us. There was a great atmosphere & whilst many places nearby were quiet this place just kept getting busier.... More

Such a fun atmosphere in El Diablito.... it is the perfect spot before a night out! Particularly recommend the House Salad (seriously try it!) and the shrimp. The Dj is amazing playing a great mix of tunes that just make you wanna daaaaance!
