One of the best parts of traveling is trying new foods and local beers - and The Green Ant nearly ruined my day. The food was "meh" and a couple of the beers were the worst I've ever had. If you have a craving for overused car oil, order up a bottle of the Green Ant stout. That was easily... More

This is a cool bar, good music, fantastic, friendly staff, amazing food and good quality beers. It looks small from the front but it has a couple of pool tables out the back and stages for live performances.

Good atmosphere for friends and beers. Staff are fun and very helpful. Food is average for Mexican with things like American ribs and burgers available. Priced is a little high.

Regular meal, regular staff... Just a normal and regular place. The staff was so stressed and outside there were a lot of people. some were shouting a lot, some other were quiet. Really, nothing special.

I went to the Green Ant Cantina for dinner on a Tuesday night and were not at all disappointed! We were seated on the tables outside the restaurant and ordered beers and food. They have their own brewed beers here, so I was expecting something special, and was left impressed. The ginger beer has a brilliant smooth quality to it,... More
