This open air spot with a great live music stage on Isla Cuale is a must see destination. Their drinks, food, service and music are great for a casual bar scene. We loved it - give it a try!

Had drinks one day and came back for dinner the next. The atmosphere is so relaxing with great music and open air. The river is right next to it which is fun to watch. Service, food and value are all good.
