“Lively but needs work”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Went to this bar a couple of times last week as it seems lively and is always full.
Great bar staff and reasonably priced drinks.
Great door staff who make sure everybody enjoys themselves without any messing.
DJ is very poor though . We watched him kill the atmosphere on loads of occasions with his music choices. Was "working" while on the net on a laptop,watching a football match on a little TV and on Facebook on his iPhone at the same time !! I want a job like that !!
If you go in a group then leave in a group as well . The "ladies of the night" who work in the area can be really intimidating particularly if you are on your own or in a small group.

“Fab Bar Perfect Location Overlooking the Beach Front”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Love this bar, went in Sept with My partner and mother in law. So was there early.

Good music and nice atmosphere. Staff were fab, I might be slightly biased on that one - my daughter works in the Bar ...lol

I did have one gripe, I ordered a rum and diet coke... I don't think there was any rum in it and I did mention to my step daughter. She didn't serve me someone else did, so watch what you are drinking and don't be afraid to complain.

Going back to see my daughter again next year and will definitely go back. Great place to sit and people watch.

“Favourite bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Every single time we went to Lanzarote we always end up in this bar ( during the day or at night) end it's always full, brilliant place to unwind, however music could be a bit better....
Music aside it's brill, nice choice of beers and cocktails, what else do you need?

“Love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Was here most nights of my 2 week holiday in PDC loved every night, the staff were great so friendly and efficient, loved the mix of music the DJ played, drink prices were so reasonable too 3 euro for a small bottle of vino and the same for a pint, and the cocktails were amazing! Cant wait to go back to Lanzarote to visit this bar!

“Excellent Bar Massively Let Down By The DJ!!!!!!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We have visited Ruta 66 numerous times on visits to PDC over the years and this Bar is excellent, but as the title states the DJ lets this bar down massively!!!!!

Same music night in and night out, very rarely plays requests and can "kill" an evening with some of the song choices that he play's.

Brilliant location, staff (excluding the DJ) and decor within the etsblishment but seriously need to improve the music!!!
