Everytime that we go(not often) its a bad experience... You have to order 3 times in a row, because the waiters are too slow or just not motivated... And whne you see the check you feel like youve been robbed... Just order a bottle of whatever spirit you like and youll have a better experience

Love the atmosphere in this bar, I must say the cubanas drink are great my cheers to the bartender, and arrive before 9pm and you could find some really great specials!! One of my dislikes about this place the 3 times I went was the service, it was very slow in serving our drinks so we had to order 3 drinks ahead bcuse they would take forever to come to us and order more.

Great little spot in a nice area. Great views of the city from the second floor. Bar food was fine, happy hour specials were ridiculously cheap, and the service was good. Good place for a large group of friends that want to hang out, take it easy, and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.

Went there with a group of friends during my visit to El Salvador, and the place is very chill. Nice music, good places to sit and talk. Food is not the greatest, and service is terrible but the atmosphere makes up for it.

Zanzibar is a nice place to have a drink or three before dinner. Thursday, Friday, Saturday are always jumping after 11:00 if your looking for a high energy crowd. The cocktail menu is by far the best in town if your looking for that U.S. drink selection and prices aren't the worst at 4.50 a drink. The food was ok..nothing out of the ordinary but I'll go back for the cocktails and lively atmosphere. Service was a bit sparse and we spent some time waiting between drinks and waiting for the bill but all and all we enjoyed the evening and met some new friends. Upstairs they have swings for some additional excitement and there is free wifi for you out of towners along with nearby shops and restaurants snuggled up to the Hilton Princess. It's best attributes are the evening crowd and cocktail selection. Enjoy!
