The guy we rented bikes from recommended this place. It's like a 2 floor open cabana/tiki type bar. Stickers and laminated "some e-card" says are plastered all over the inside. Lots of visual eye candy while you wait for your drink. Giant Jenga there too. Fried bacon with a maple syrup dipping sauce for the equivalent of $3. Delish! And... More

This is one of the best places for a drink, snack or meal. It sits right on the water and the views are beautiful. Went there several times. We met the owners and they were delightful! Wish I could go there tonight.

You must do the shots! It is so fun and a unique experience. What is not to like about a great bar perched over the ocean in a palapa! Fun times.

The "PBnG" ( yeah...that's what cool folks call it!) is a great spot for a good meal and drinks on the actual coastline. The breeze keeps the pesty flies and skeeters away so you can enjoy your food. So what your napkins blow around. The staff hustles hard to make sure you are taken care of and get your food... More

Nice place but not that special. The menu was typical for a bar, although the smoked chicken wings are not to be missed. Cosy ambiance ande friendly staff that tries to make you feel comfortable.
