we chose to go to after recommendation by one of the waiters at the hotel we were staying. We thought it was a great little place, good atmosphere with reasonably priced drinks. Fairly basic but clean and the staff were friendly. It was live music which was excellent and just added to the atmosphere. Well worth a visit if you're... More

Hidden gem in centre of Corralejo. Small acoustic venue but fills quickly so get there early. Great live music. Nice chilled atmosphere. Well my favourite chill out place to have a drink, chill in good company and listen to see great musicians.

This venue is off the main street in Corralejo but I kept coming back as it had live music around 21:30 each night and the venue was always packed with a variety of people from all over. The music was excellent and the atmosphere great. A nice find off the main street. Recommended visit especially after 21:30 when the music... More

Great place, with brilliant musicians. We will definitely return next year. The lads are rather partial to Jaffa Cakes and walnut whips, so when you visit remember to take some. Steph & Steve, UK

This is an OK place to end off an evening with live music Went a few times late on and quite enjoyed the atmosphere Only comment we would make was that it seemed to be the same band each time, but with a different singer One of the singers did spoil the evening as he just became more self indulgent...

Hi, many thanks for taking the time to write a review. I think you may have us mixed up with a different venue as we don't have 'bands' performing at the Rock Island Bar, we do however have a variety of solo acoustic artists and duets. More

Just come back from a weeks holiday in corralejo and the evenings were mainly taken up by the rock island bar. The usual suspects were taking a break for the majority of the trip, however this meant that we were able to listen to the amazing "Mia and the moon". One of the best acoustic duo's I have ever seen,... More

You won't beat Dave and Gary for a great night's music and banter. Terrific little bar will take baby boomers back to their yoof and show our kids what they missed. We look forward to our nights at RIB every year.

Went here 3 times in our one week holiday, twice with just Dave Hedley playing and on our last with Gary the bassist playing as well, unfortunately couldn't stay till the end which was a shame as the pair were great together. Dave did a fantastic job on his own though and we were really impressed each time we went... More
