We called in here for a drink as we were a little early for our reservation at a nearby restaurant. I love Mexican food and the dishes we saw coming out from the kitchen looked fantastic. If we hadn't had made a firm reservation at...the other restaurant, we would have stayed. We came back after our meal and belted out a couple of karaoke songs. 🎤 Good sound system and very enthusiastic crowd. Karaoke fix satisfied, we then returned to our hotel.More

Very underwhelming. More of a drinking place than somewhere to eat. Unless you want something overpriced and a bit meh! Staff are a little rude too, like they don’t really care.

The Fat Fajita is a really good bar I love to visit on any holiday I take to this sun drenched resort . A big bar ,interior is lovely ,a cool looking serving bar dominates the main room ,eclectic decor and furnishings ,a stage area...for the karaoki which normally kicks off about 9.30pm and lots of seating options . We were here on a Friday late evening ,bar was busy with a great vibe ,we got beers which were served in hip top condition ,we chilled out and soaked up the great vibe in this busy and very popular bar. Beer here was really good ,normally stay on bottled beer when on the resorts of Spain but the draught beer was great ,light and hoppy ,bursting with taste and most importantly iced cold ,hardly surprising it's so busy with beer of this quality. We really enjoyed our beers in here before we moved on and as on every other visit to here we had a great time. The Fat Fajita is easy go locate along Calle Salvador Allende,a street and area teeming with pubs,cafés,bars and restaurants. Well worth checking out if you're in the area.More

Food was okay, had the Tacos but needed to eat them with cutlery as the chilli made them impossible to pick up. Daughter had spicy chicken quesadilla but said there was no spice at all. Attentive servers.

Had a lovely dinner here first week of July. Every bit as good as last summer. All four of us enjoyed the meal. Steak burgers and fries were well cooked. Service was great and quite fast even though it was busy. Prices are reasonable. Hope...to return again next summer!More

Was here with the lovely Ursula Great spot if you like karaoke. They have a fab system there with a professional host DJ who has all the songs! It’s a real fun night if you’re brave enough to go on the mike. The standard was...really high. Just make sure you have cash as they don’t take cards at night which I thought was a bit weird. The only bar I came across in a two week vacation that wouldn’t accept a card for payment. However, overall it was excellentMore

We were so looking forward to fajitas but sadly they were very poor. I’m not sure how you can make fajitas without any Mexican seasoning or spices but this was achieved here. No seasoning at all on the chicken or the peppers and onions, it...was extremely bland. The amount of guacamole and sour cream was literally a small dessert spoon and the rice was out of one of those microwave packets. When the table was cleared we mentioned our dissatisfaction to the waitress, who just shrugged and was compelled disinterested. Would not recommend this for food unfortunately.More

Came here after seeing review on tik tok. And the bonus was just 50 meters from our hotel. Was not disappointed. The two girls gave fantastic service. There was a great buzz about the place, with a hen party in the corner having a great...time, to the family of six sitting next to us, gave this place an great atmosphere. To the food. What can I say, amazing. And the price was fair for a great meal. And to top this place off, it has karaoke starting 9.30pm. Brilliant food, service and entertainment.More
