Just at the rear of Riu Papaya is this small bar run by Pepe, who speaks several languages and makes everyone very welcome. The drinks are exceptionally cheap, even though the £ is in decline against the Euro. Didn't have food but felt extremely comfortable

Great place to have some pints for €1,50 each and play some pool. Pepe is the best bartender ever, he makes you feel home right away!

As mentioned by others the beer is only 1.5 euro per pint. Quite a difference from hotel prices. Burger and chips was adequate but not outstanding. Good place for people watching.

Been here every night, whilst on holiday. Pepe, the barman is excellent with customers, very friendly. Decor inside and out really needs fixed up. Cheap beer, great measures. Busy during the day, bit quieter at night. Pepe really looked after us, and was always up for a chat, he really is the best thing about this place.

We had lunch there, chicken skewers with salad and chips. The chicken was the worst quality of chicken ever. Water-filled rubber chicken and the rose wine wasn't even worth called wine. They had like just wine, nothing to choose from. House wine. It's just a place for people that don't appreciated good quality food or drinkable wine. I would recommend... More

Called in at lunchtime, found beer to be 1.5 euro a pint. Only good thing about the place as ceiling boards and light fittings hanging out and disgusting ripped cushions were behind attached to the outside chairs. Would seriously worry about health matters in this bar.

No Food, No Wi-fi. No Credit or Tab. This is a no nonsense bar. I came here for the cheap drinks, great service and the outdoor seating area that gets the sun all day long. The staff are excellent, they keep the cold drinks flowing and bring them to your table. You get a great mix of people visiting the... More

The inside of this bar is tired, falling to bits and an ex pats hang out. The inside is a disaster area. What hasn't already fallen down or broken needs a total refit. The female server works hard on her own but it is hardly the place to go to other than for a cheap beer. If other bars in... More

Well Friday night I was in here with two Spanish guys who stole my phone in the bar, I ran outside for them to attack me, being pushed to the ground and stamping on my arm. When I then came back into the bar, obviously upset I spoke to a blonde girl asking her to ring the police I was... More
