Description
Great Bar ON the ocean, spectacular views. Rated #1 of over 100 Places to Eat in Puerto Plata. World-Famous fish & chips and great cheeseburgers & fries... and other sandwiches, too. We are a bar, first and foremost... with simply fantastic food. We have a new, extended roof... that means there is never a problem when it rains!!! Check us out by using the website link, too. I look forward to meeting, greeting you and making you feel right at home. I am at my bar, 6 days a week (not Sundays) from 3 pm to nearly 11 pm, our normal closing hour. Big Lee
