If you are looking for a romantic evening with beautiful surroundings and hot and cold running waiters and waitresses this is not the place. If you are looking for great authentic food, friendly helpful staff and a peek into the local world you found the place.

My wife and I were walking down the street and the gentleman out front asked us to come in. At first we walked by and then decided to give it a try. It was wonderful! The food was authentic and the chief and his wife came out and told us about the food, restaurant and shared a bit about their lives. The kind of thing veteran travelers are always on the look out for.

Not just good food (let's face it, great restaurants with fine surroundings are available everywhere and there is not much special about it except it is fine. Been there and done that in Paris, Rome, London, Los Angeles, Bangkok, etc). Local cuisine the way local people eat it and meeting the local people and sharing a bit of their lives. . . . . that is unique.

Funky Monkey Bar & Grill meet that standard. If you choose to drop by please give Eider and Lillin our best!

The food is good and not too expensive. Bonus is that it is connected to a back packers place so lots of eye candy :-)

Loved it. Nachos are great. Breakfast is wonderful. Loved having this so close to the park entrance. Great place to grab a drink.
