My boyfriend and I were walking down the beach when we saw this rickety sign that said Monkey Bar ------> We were sckeptical about going so we turned back. We talked to other vacationers and everyone said it was a good time! The man who owns it lives there and will show you where all the white faced monkeys are that hang around the bar. Definitely check it out, but make sure to go with a few people :)

Excellent, attentive service. Drinks are quite expensive, unless you order during their "Happy Hour". I loved their very tasty Ceviche (highly seasoned). Food was just average.

Our first night in town, this was easy to find and close to our condo! The service was terrific, food was good, beer was cold and drinks were very fun- my daughter's Pina Colada had swirls of chocolate on the inside of the glass with a fun cut-out of a piece of pineapple! A great start to the holiday and recommendation of what to do in town from our waitress!

Drinks other than beer are pricey, but it's the best view of Potrero Bay you'll find, and at night you can see all the lights in the town and on the mountainside. Very hotelly, however.
