Awesome bar with great music (and if they aren't busy, Ramon might just let you plug your phone in so you can listen to your own music on the stereo outside)! We were there for drinks, so we didn't eat, but the Mezcal is AWESOME!!!!! Wait, I guess we did eat some crickets. Much to my surprise they were delicious.... More

This bar has a really cool outdoors section. Couches are outside and they have picnic table set around a projector in the back. If you keep going, you can find the stairs to the rooftop which is really neat! Fun place to hang out with your bowl of crickets!

The bar you want to have in your neighbourhood... Ramon runs the bar with his heart (and his own design vision:-D). The Mosca mezcal will kill you and Ramon's rottweiler Lola will love you... place where you'll experience a great party or where you just can chat with nice people or watch a quality movie the other day...

Cool place to hang out, especially when they have live music in the back garden. Really nice drinks and tapas. La Gran Mosca Verde is very different from the other bars in town, It is somewhat out of the way, hidden behind a heavy wooden door so it is less touristed. The building is set up with both an indoor... More

Ambiance and drinks are very nice. Nice deco and friendly staff. Food was nice, but was cooked from frozen. Enjoyed the experience there.

Nice spot in what seemed like an old house, a bit off the beaten track but good food and drink in an interesting setting!

Great place, amazing tapas and cocktails. I felt like I was in a hip little bar around the block that the locals hang out in. Lots of europeans and locals..... indie rock music videos playing on a wall in the backyard. House music on the weekends. YAY love this place

Very cosy bar serving excellent tapas style food in a friendly atmosphere. Cocktails were delicious, especially the Mojito and the Moska Mule! Don't miss out the funky crazy bar top shaped like a huge colourful insect of some sort! The music was also excellent with some cool movies showing on a huge screen.
