“Came to the Fah Bar and had a blast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

Did not stay in the hotel. And I wouldn't, the awesome loud music wouldn't allow me to get any shut eye :) as far as the bar goes my hubby and I had a blast! The bands were really good, playing awesome jams. The service was prompt and attentive and kept the cervezas coming. Would definitely stop by this bar again when I go back to Playa

I did not stay here but enjoyed the live music jam and the friendly atmosphere - the managers were very supportive of musicians and that is worth 5 star for me - drink prices very good - finger food excellent - central al fresco setting

We were very hungry and we heard the music streaming from the bar. We chose it because we could sit and eat on the street and watch the traffic walk by. We were surprised at how good the food was. The Ahi salad, with sesame dressing was wonderful. We had a nacho platter, that included guacamole and quesadillas and that was very good. We ordered COSTILLAS, ribs marinated in orange juice and it was WONDERFUL, garnished with a sliced roasted onion. Tender and moist. The Aranchera was very good, done perfectly. We had EXCELLENT service, from our server and his assistants made sure we had drinks. Margaritas were very good. The server said that the new chef had been in place for 15 days, so we think they hit the jackpot.

Roaming down 5th Ave looking for a place to wet the whistle. Place looked nice, so stopped in.
Service was average. ended up having drinks and guacamole. Drinks were good and average price. The guac was very good. They also had live entertainment. Someone playing guitar. Not overly loud. Nice background music. The service was mostly slow, had to wait for drinks and our bill. Will not stop back. To many other places to try.

I have been to the fiesta 20 times over the years and love 19 of them.
I will admit i am glad for an owner change.
Recently we had steaks for dinner and they were perfect,the kitchen area was clean.
I only felt slightly overcharged once a few years ago and honestly thought a few times i got over on them.
The bands change over the years but always enjoy the two band format.We have listened to the best jam sessions anywhere!
The beer gives me a brain freeze.
Ask for Danny the night bartender as he is a great ambassador for the place...and his English is good.
Check it out...

Room Tip: Danny wouldnt let me stay in a crappy room. I will check rooms in may and let trip advisor know wha...

Did not stay at the hotel or eat here, but sat at the bar and listened to music. The music was best earlier in the evening and the 9 o'clock switched to a younger sound - but if you are younger you will enjoy....Denni the bartender is very good. We enjoyed music and conversation with him. Be sure to sit at the bar and order drinks, or walk up to the bar and order. And don't forget to take care of the bartender - Denni. They depend on their tips!

Room Tip: Did not stay here, only enjoyed music at the bar.
