Great times!!

We went here twice while we were staying at the Riu Playa Blanca. Both nights were for Saturday Night Hockey. The first night we went, we had booked the cab to pick us up at 10:30 p.m. At around 9:30 p.m. we were told by our server that they would be closing in 15 minutes. We asked the manager... read more

Just had a beer but heard the food is good. Bring a Canadian shirt to hang in the wall with the others.

Woody's is a beach version of roadhouse...an open-air bar and restaurant adorned with hockey other/jerseys from all corners of Canada...(however a lame representation from the Ottawa Senators and Montreal Canadiens - more like t-shirts than hockey sweaters). The place is very panama rustic....a cement floor with a painted hockey surface and basic bar tables and chairs face the beach on... More

Walked from our hotel to Noriega's ruin of a house and on the return trip stopped here for some much needed refreshment and what turned out to be a terrific meal. The service was excellent. If you know you are going to stop there, be sure to pack a jersey you can part with to add to their collection hanging... More

We had lunch with friends. The hot chicken wings are hotter than the weather, but, delicious. They also make the best onion rings that I have tasted in a long time. Great food, great friends and great times.

a very average experience ... food (Corvina fillets, Corvina fried fish) very very ordinary and not worth ordering again if/when there. Service was fine. Average prices for area. Beach in front of this establishment was a bit of a joke ... very much unkept. There are better places.

A truly awesome experience. Food is incredible as are the cheap drinks. You must try the lobster and shrimp dish. Best money that we have ever spent eating out. Thank you so much to Theresa, Dave, Debbie and Vern. We will be back and hope that all Canadians join us.
