It's ok to eat here. I wasn't too impressed as the burgers didn't quite hit the spot but it will suffice if you miss Cali food and ambiance.

Although it may be the atmosphere they are trying to present, this restaurant was WAY too noisy for me. The food was mediocre. Don´t plan to return.

10 years ago Bennigan's was the spot; Excellent food, excellent service, excellent prices. In the last few years prices have gone drastically up... For the price I advice to go to a fancier restaurant with the same prices.

Just ok. Since there are just a few bars in San Salvador at The current moment, many people spend time drinking beer at pubs, so is quite crowded. Not anything you haven't seen or been before. Service quite slow, but food and drinks are customizable even if they are not on menu Tasty.

This Irish Pub alike restaurant used to be a great option to have a nice gourmet burger along with a couple of beers and enjoyable service staff; on my last visit the food was good but the service was pretty bad actually may us say that we wont come back again several times in within my party

A nice place to hangout with friends and have some drinks. Food is great. Music is always great and from time to time the live music is awesome too.

I popped in at the restaurant they have in Torre Futura and got amazed with the atmosphere. Nice music and the best mojitos ever!!! Sit outside, close to the bar and enjoy a nice view from El Salvador.

Great American food (think burgers, ribs, etc, and a bit nicer than US TGI Friday's) and they usually have deals on tap beers. It's a chain in El Salvador with locations at different malls (La Gran Via, next to Marriott Hotel and Plaza Futura next to Crowne Plaza Hotel) I like the one in Plaza Futura better because of an...

It's Ironic, will all of the Bennigan's closing, I had to be in El Salvador to get a Monte Cristo again. It just wasn't the same. The Service was slow, the Food was soggy and just not that good. Not awful, just not something I would say I would be looking forward too again.
