It's has nothing going for it. It is run down and lacks any personality. We were surprised about some of the raving reviews as they could not be further from the facts. Night life so far in Granada is limited.

Nothing really stands out in the Caimito street, full of bars and restaurants trying to capture the tourists eye. We ate here as it had a few more people that the rest, and the food portions looked quite nice from the people eating there. We ordered some beer and a few items to try from the menu, after a long...

I read the reviews and were prepaid but honestly. Not existing service, all our food were under cocked and the wallet of our friends was stolen eventhough there are cameras everywhere. Nothing good to say expect to stay away from this place.

Friend and I went out here on both Friday and Saturday night. Saturday night was considerably more packed with locals. Great place to dance and have fun in Granada. Never felt unsafe or out of place.

Quick stop for a beer on a hot afternoon. Friendly owner. Reasonable prices, as is typical of Granada. Heard they are revamping the menu options. Didn't eat there but the beer was cold!

The restaurant claims the best fish and chips in Central America. My fish was not so great. In fairness I think they just can't get the cold water fish like cod or hake and the warm water fish just doesn't flake but turns mushy in places. It may be good for something else on the menu.

It is in a great location in the heart of Granada. The service was great and the drink specials were excellent, but the food was - sent back. The sign said they had the best fish and chips in Granada, but we got one single large deep fried piece of fish and it was an under cooked mackeral. I am... More

I really don't know what to say about this place but Look Out......Service was incredible in a sense that there wasn't any. I never really felt safe in the place even though they had bouncers but I had a feeling that if something happened I wasn't going to win. Enter at your own risk.

We have been patrons of Kelly's Bar since 2010 and always drop in for a drink or two (or three) each time we stay in Granada. We enjoy having shots and cocktails seated at one of the two street side tables, great for watching people. We have frequented the Bar less in our recent visits because they offer fewer selections...
