The food is okay. Lots of Northern US style food to chose from. However, you aren't here just for the food. Some of the best live folk music, atmosphere, unending choice of booze, and the waiting staff are what you are here for. Do not call the staff "little people". A "little person" in the PI is a kind of... More

I always visit the Hobbit house when I'm in the area, but it really needs some upgrades. The price for a beer is not in style with the place. The music isn't great though they're not paid, only freelance. Only 3 hobbit was there this time, before always 8-10. Bought a t-shirt from them, cost 600 peso whichever is over... More

The interior is very dark and ascetic. Dwarfs (hobbits as they say) are serving you and they are doing it well. The place seems to be more a bar with live music and extremely many of the clients are "white" men with the local ladies. We also ate there by ordering prawns and the plates were just OK, not something... More

good little pub..pardon the pun. could be so much better though. the waiters aren't the most enthusiastic staff you'll find.which is strange coming from Australia were bar staff try to encourage the merriment. the band of singers were amazing their gospel like voices singing rock classics. the interior is a tad dark. the small statured staff would be better off...

I visited here a couple times in Nov-Dec 2016. It is a great atmosphere. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Drinks are reasonably priced. They usually have live music, which doesn't get the praise they deserve. I will be going back this month and I will look forward to visiting again. The cleanliness in the bathrooms is the only downfall.
