A bar downtown thrown up between two buildings with palapa roof. Loud, no parking, and was closed many nights for being noisy after hours. When I was back in 2016 I saw that it was closed up permanently.

I went there with a couple of other travellers because it was one of the few open places. They had cheap beer at the happy hour and they were playing some good reggae. Few minutes later and they were playing some ugly mexican music, you know, the one that attracts pseudo drug lords and sombrero people. I guess that if... More

We always grab a bite here. They have 3 tacos and a margarita for 100 pesos, it is a great deal. It is a cool palapa style place with interesting murals on the wall, including Monica Lewinski and Bill Clinton not having sexual relations.

We stopped in for lunch, and were met by Homer, the Owner. We liked the palapa and asked for something other than beer/alcohol (needed a break). The ex-pat bartender fixed us two fresh limeades, and they were great. The fish-o-the-day was mahi so oreded it grilled. It came with rice and a small salad. My wife says it it one... More

We were in town for a week but only discovered Bob Marlins with three days to go and went twice! Fabulous food and the Manager went out of his way to make us comfortable - even going and buying a bottle of my favorite wine from another bar!

Incredible little bar! This is a small open air bar but it's got tons of character! Jose was our bartender and he was a just an all around neat guy. Okay so the margaritas.... Don't really know what made them so amazing. I can tell you there was no mix used at all. The first thing he did was hand... More

Fun outdoor spot in the middle of town. The mojito wasn't great, however the orange margarita was pretty tasty. Didn't eat any food there, but another patron recommended the chicken tacos.

Super laid back outside bar with happy people on both sides of the counter. The food is really good and the drinks don't disappoint. The shrimp soup is fantastic.The owner Renee, enjoys his work to a frightening degree. You will know him if you see him, big man with a big smile.
