Don't blink or you could drive past this establishment and entering through the remnants of a once popular hotel you could be slightly deterred but persevere. Once you enter the bar area you will be amazed at the atmospherics of the place . A magic little bar opens up in front of you with a superb open balcony over the... More

Recently in Pophnei and visited this bar later in the evening. Full of eclectic surfing memorabillia and old sailing relics, unfortunately it was a quiet Tuesday night but the view is stunning and mine host was pleasant and full of information. Put it on your bars to visit in town.

Brilliant pizza, stunning view, great hosts, lots to see on walls etc. Well worth a visit - and a game of pool.

the restaurant is located on the basement of a semi-abandoned building... going down is quite creepy though ...but when at the restaurant...the ambiance is sporty and you get a good view of the lagoon and the rock prominent of Pohnpei...

Above average for most of the restaurants on the island. The sashimi is good, as well as, the beer and ambience. This restaurant is owned by an Aussie and his local wife which explains why it is good. I drank here as a Peace Corps volunteer in 2005, and ate here in 2012 as a development worker. Most of the...

Went there with a friend. The bar is actually the basement of a building that was converted into a sports bar. You have 3 sofa lounges, 3 tables&chairs , a pair of pool tables and a wide wrap around bar. Don't order the mixed drinks, the mixture is mostly tonic water or juice and a tiny bit of alcohol. I...

Well I have to say of all the restaurants I have tried in Pohnpei so far, the food is pretty good. Burgers are made the way it's suppose to be, Spicy Poki was good although I tasted better, but the best so far in Pohnpei. The pizza has a great wood burning oven yet the bottom of the pizza was...

Grungy in the best possible way. Free pool tables, sashimi so fresh it's twitiching, Led Zep and Pink Floyd on the sound system, cool beers, jawdropping view, "not4free" wifi (ask Wayne). All you can eat sushi on Wednesdays. Fair prices. Tall tales, larger-than-life characters. You could write a novel around this place.

I want to like this place a lot. The atmosphere - a eclectic nautical themed bar in an otherwise abandoned giant building - is pretty unusual. The music is an excellent mix of classic rock. The food is even pretty good - the Smoked Tuna Pizza and Blackened Tuna are both amazing and the Australian burger is probably the best... More

What a cracker of a bar. Great atmosphere, excellent pizza, friendly staff and free pool tables. We really enjoyed it here. While waiting for a taxi home an Australian comes out of the bar and offers us a ride home to hotel. Turns out he is the owner! Top stuff :-)
