This place was amazing for several reasons. First, the food was amazing. The tamarind ribs are a must have. The shrimp was also very good. Two, the entertainment was fantastic. We danced, ate and drank all night. Not sure why anyone had problems with this...More

What a great place for entertainment and dancing. They have a large main stage and the music alternates between live bands, DJ's, and breaks for the artists when Latin Music just pumps out of the overhead sound systems. Three levels so there are great views...More

what is the average price for alcohol?

Response from KriticL | Reviewed this property |
USD8-$12. Bottles more expensive. But with the exchange rate of 2800 pesos to a dollar you will be drinking a lot at a very affordable price.
Is the Gaira Cafe open Sunday evenings, and is there cumbia dancing on Sundays? Thank you!
