Alejandra, the bartender, made us the best Bloody Mary I have ever had. Her secret Sangrita shot with tequila, is out of this world! The staff and owner made us feel like family.

We'd read that Apache's was under new ownership so weren't sure whether the fabulous ambience would have changed since our last visit a couple of years ago. Rest assured if you're wondering - owners Geoff and Ricardo continue as warm and welcoming hosts, the servers are still cute and friendly, and the packed happy hour patio still means that you...

The waiters were friendly, attentive and there was great conversation. It was very close to the hotel Playa Los Arcos. Get there early for a seat outside

I'm a big fan of Apache's while I'm here every year for 5 months. Great happy hour (4:30 to 7pm) crowd with my favorite strawberry daiquiri at 2x1 which are a great deal. But lots of other drinks are available on the happy hour including I think wine. As you start enjoying the company, someone invariably orders something like fries,... More

Good place to meet others and chat it up for a bit! Great people watching location and if you get a seat closest to Andales, you'll be able to hear their music well! Ordered a call vodka drink which I enjoyed so much that I ordered a second drink, only to find out my last drink was made with the... More

Good drinks, fair prices, great waiters (Chewy and Freddy). Nice crowds, but you have to arrive early if you want to be seated outside.

Since the departure of Endra, its lost much of its atmosphere also the Choice of Music is geared to a Younger crowd. Sad loss to The Gentrified Older Gays
