“I Highly Recommend a Visit to Alex's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

With out a doubt the best fish burger I have had, fresh fish taking out of the fridge and put into the frying pan, cooked to perfection served on a fresh bun with fries and an ICE cold beer. Our friends ordered the hamburger with all the toppings they couldn't stop telling us how delicious it was even better then the ones they make. The owner Alex (speaks English) made us feel at home, it was great to hear his story on taking over the business. The waitress was happy, smiling, friendly and although we don't speak spanish there was no difficulty in ordering our meal and the service was great.

“The best burger in Las Terrenas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

The bar has always been a hang out for English speaking expats and tourist, be it Americans, Canadians, English or Europeans. And in the last 8 months the new owner managed to turn things around and certainly for the better.
Alex has updated, simplified and improved the menu, and may I say perfected the burger. This is now the best place to go for a reasonably priced burger and fries. There are other great things on the menu worth trying if you are staying for a longer period of time and there is always an ice cold Presidente or Bohemia available.
Go and try it you will not regret it and you will most likely make some friends in the process.

“Best Fish Burger Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

By far the best fish burger we have had. We watch the cook take the fresh fish from the fridge and cook to order. Absolutely tender and cooked to perfection, served on a fresh kaiser bun and garnished with lettuce, tomato and onion. On the side we had a large portion of the best tasting French fries. We will definitely be returning to try their hamburgers! Another good point ..... The owner Alex speaks English
