“The fashion and dance shows are unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Do not miss the fashion and dance show starting at 7pm every evening. The fashion show is a display of ethic dress and is presented in catwalk runway style. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, a group of six young male "dancers" then put on the most amazing and athletic display of dancing imaginable. Someone at the table next to me remarked: "Laos' got Talent!" and I strongly agree!

“Good entertainment pity about the portions”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised by the fashion show. I had expected it to be awful but the models were charming and their clothes beautiful. If there had been more local music it would have been even better. The breakdancers were excellent. Food and drinks are expensive but there is no couvert charge so fair value I thought.

Unfortunately our visit for breakfast was really poor. Being a big bacon fan I ordered the "Ultimate Bacon Breakfast" and was really disappointed with the portion size, especially the bacon. The bacon was very tasty but being a big bacon fan I really had hoped for more. The coffee was not great either.

“Great for drinks and a light snack”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

I have to admit, I had to look at photos to remember this place. It was a really good night out with some friends we made along the way. I think this was the night we tried to go bowling! Don't! But as for this bar. Great time. And we probably consumed more than we should becasue it was such a fun time. Check it out.

“small portions - big price”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2013

Not a great restaurant - three times the price of a local house and the portions are small. worth going for the Ethnik fashion show although. recommend you order an app and beverage and save the eating for elsewhere.

There is one thing in this business that is universal – you can never make everyone happy – but we try to do our best. What is a small portion to some is more than adequate for others. What tastes great to some does not taste good for others. We are always on site to try to make our customers happy, and if someone is not happy with their food we are more than happy to bring them something else that they may like. Very unusual, we have received two negative reports from people from Nicaragua this month. While we do try to say hello to all our customers we don’t recall any visitors from Nicaragua. Regardless, it appears that the Nicaraguan palate is either not familiar with southern style smoked BBQ or it just does not agree with them. Regarding our pricing, we do not have a single item on menu that is over $10, and are pricing is very similar to pricing to the same items in nearby bars and restaurants. We do a thorough research on our competition. We do try to keep the budget traveler in mind however, by offering very low priced cocktails. For example, our special Hive Cocktails are approximately $1.50 – one of the best deals in town!!

“Loved It - loved the staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

What a place - made you feel so welcome, good food, good location, and lovely ambience. The star is the female manager/owner who helped us when we couldn't remember where our hotel was. She is the perfect hostess, making sure everyone was being served, enjoying the show, and generally always had enough drink. thank you.
