I loved the karaoke night when I was there. It has multiple layers. In the same location it had a sidewalk seating, karaoke, dance club, and a live band going on at the same time. Good time can be had by an English speaker for sure! Make sure you play the bongos!

The groups generally have more fun. That way, you don't feel singled out when you are pulled up on stage, have tequila poured down your throat, picked up and turned upside down and shaken. Why? Because they eventually get to almost everyone else in your group. It's more fun to see several of your friends also get humiliated. Yeah, it's... More

I love to have a good time, I love a fun bar, I love a great tequila....this is none of those things. If you are looking for a place where drunk women patrons are used for entertainment in some very raunchy ways then this is your spot. If yo want watered down tequila...again...your spot.

Yea Yea - Everyone goes here... But i'd say it's always a must stop. Theirs always people in here so that makes it fun. You can pay 10 bucks to have your wife turned upside down have her rear slapped and a Spanish person blow his whistle all while drowning your throat in Tequila. I did that and grabbed a... More

Very, very loud music. Food was just okay and it was full of cruise ship passengers like us. Probably wouldn't go back.

Clean and friendly staff. Service and food was excellent. We have a place in Labufadora, so we like to visit this restaurant when the ships are not in due to heavy croud. It is a tourist attraction and lots of shops around, so bring your walking shoes. If you like people watching, this is the place to be. At night... More

OK, so you know you're at Papas and Beers when you start to hear screaming girls and roaring boys. I felt anxious in this environment but I wasn't wasted, you need to be! All the reviews about how degrading this place is towards women are correct. Think Magaluf, perhaps worse

Papas and beer draws mostly a younger crowd which can get a little wild after lunch. We liked the atmosphere here and to watch people. Prices are moderate and you get a fair value for what you pay. The freshly made guacamole is worth a try and very good $8. Beers sell for 3.50 a bottle.

We went to Papas and Beer as a recommendation from some friends. The food was ok, but we were mainly there to see what all the fuss is about. The atmosphere seemed better suited towards college students as it was more of a party seen than a restaurant (although we did see a few retirees getting involved. There's constant whistling...
