This small bar is certainly worth a visit and conveniently situated just off the main street in Arroyo. The bar is small but an area to the side of the bar creates a shady and pleasant place to eat or enjoy a drink or two. On every occasion that we have visited we have never been disappointed. The food is simply stunning and very plentiful at a very reasonable price. All food is prepared freshly for you after you place your order. The home made burgers are the best I have tasted but if you fancy something a little different there are savoury filled (or sweet!) pancakes, stuffed mushrooms, pasta dishes and recently added "winter warmers" (chiili and rice, chicken curry, stew etc) at an unbelievable 2.75 euros! The staff are friendly and efficient and obviously know how to serve and prepare really good food. They are celebrating their one year anniversary and I hope they go from strength to strength in the difficult Spanish times.

We visited here after being disappointed by another restaurant being closed. It was a good choice. The burgers were large (we couldn't finish them) homemade and really really tasty. We sat outside in the yard (much nicer than I make it sound) and enjoyed our tea, a game of pool and a glass of wine.

Visited this small bar set back off the main drag in arroyo after a family member recommended it to me. The bar area inside is small but they have a side court yard area with around 8 dining tables and a pool table with plenty of room. The owners are very friendly and welcoming with a Canadian twist. The food here is exceptional in taste and value if you like Canadian/American dishes with traditional dishes thrown in. if you have watched man v food on tv then this is the place for you. Pulled pork sandwiches, home made Burgers and chilli, hot dawgs, chilli dawgs, chicken wings with sauce so hot it will make you cry (so I'm told, I'm too much of a wimp to try!!!), real fish burgers, and lovely fresh fish and chips with a real light crunchy batter. Additions to the menu as we left was a chilli nacho with cheese and pulled pork stack.....lovely. There are lots more on the menu and all are reasonably priced. Drinks are of good value compared to some other local bars. Well worth a visit and hopefully they will be around for a long time. Directions from railway station head up about 100 yards and turn left heading up the paved shopping street. At the top you wil find a pescaderia and look over the road to your right to find moose bar....hope this helps.

visited this bar in May.,
Nothing is too much trouble for the people who run this place.
The food is delicious, the chicken wings with varying degrees of heat are out of this world.
Garlic mushrooms the same . Fish and chips delicious, the batter on the fish is not normal batter, very unusual, but very good. Can't tell you what it is my mind has gone, senior moment!!!
You will have to go and find out. Prices very reasonable. Will be visiting again in September
