I came to this place after having dinner next door at the pizza place with some friends. The local band Los Pobrecitos was playing and the crowd was great so we took a seat and stayed for the whole show, however... I ordered a Mojito and they brought one, but instead of mint leaves, it had cilantro in it! I gave it back and then decided to play it safe by ordering Smirnoff Ice. I don't understand how they wouldn't tell the difference between them!

Thank you for reviewing our restaurant. Unfortunatly I don't believe you visited Dorado's restaurant. The pobrecitos have not played here in over three months. I appreciate all reviews, when they are real they are always better. I invite you to visit us for real and I'll give you a free mojito

The longest time i ever spent in a bar, and there were lots of reasons for this.

The food.

The service.

The view.

The warmth.

THE PEOPLE.

Bob will treat you like a long-lost friend. In addition, you will meet other new friends that you will hold close to your heart for a lifetime. I don't take experiences like this lightly. You won't either. Ignore the places with the higher prices and slack-jawed service, and come here instead, where the Tonas are colder than Vermont and the atmosphere is warmer than Nicaraguan sunshine,

It is really to bad that this place has such good food and such a terrible atmosphere for eating. We were about two seconds from punching one of those street vendors in the head. Horrible experience eating here. Will not be back.

Like the title says, it was our favourite bar. It is hockey themed, and we're not hockey fans, but we loved their patio, the great service, and the food was really good as well. Get a table on the patio and the hours will fly by as the cold beers, good food, and great service take place. Very down to earth place as well, unlike so many of the bars along the waterfront that are clearly there to serve tourists and people from the cruise ships. Stewart who was running the bar is a great bloke! This is a down-to-earth restaurant and bar with a great view and run by great people. No fancy table cloths or pretentious people, but also not a cheesy club bar either. Just a great, straight-up, place to drink, eat, and watch the scenery. We kept returning here for a reason.

Bob the owner, was very friendly and accomodating! Met some fun people there, and there was some great Canadian hockey paraphenalia up on the walls! Enjoyed a great lobster dinner here! Bar is right on the beach, and has great views of the sunset!
