This was my 1st return visit in many years. The people could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I was just disappointed with the quality of the meals. With my 1st bite of the ribs I noticed a slight freezer burn taste. The BBQ...sauce was the most bland I have ever eaten. It pains me to have to write these words because the staff were really Great!More

One of our favorite! Love the quality of the service and the food, highlighting the Pork Ribs, Bufalo wings and Salad.

What more can I say!?! Barbequed Ribs to die for, great service, personal welcome from the owner. We celebrated a birthday and the staff came out with tambourines and sang for him.

Paid US$10 for a piece of 'minute steak' that I can buy at home for US$1.50. Minute steak is a portion of poor quality meat tenderized with a machine to break the toughness. The salad had a good portion of lettuce, pink coloured and tasteless...sliced tomato and sliced tasteless black olives. The fries had been cooked earlier and were soggy and cold when served to the table. The ambience was OK and the table service 'acceptable'.More

A meeting place for expatriates, tourists, modern residents of Puerto. Good service, wonderful owner and, of course, the trump card of the place is the grill. If you like a fun company, beer and meat or fish with a taste of open fire, you are...here.More

The Pork Ribs just fell off the bone. We had rare beef tenderloin steak cooked perfectly. Noisse salad with Tuna great. Desserts were excellent Choc fondant and banana split. Reasonably priced. Good service. Relaxing Jazz music. Outdoor garden seating such ambience. Highly recommend this place.

Captain Ribs--who would guess this would be so good. Food (ribs), service, décor--all were good and we were glad we went in. Rocco the cat, was very nice, and an added piece of décor we didn't expect. Glad we found this place.

Had dinner here because we were craving for something different after a lot of local food. Started with quesadillas which were super delicious and continued with ribs. Wow those were absolutely to dye for!! Super tender, falling of the bone. Concluded with a sizzling plate...of local fish wish was even better! Service, price and location was also great... Thank you! We'll be back :-)More

The ribs are so tasty, I could have eaten it twice - I’ve never actually had ribs before and these were so good and lovely quick service. Would recommend if in the area!
