Best place to grab a fancy cocktail. You can't go wrong with any drink here, but I recommend the different flavored and infused gin & tonics. I hear the whiskey sours are delicious as well.

As usual, after having tapas in town we go to El Dardo to enjoy their premium drinks and excellent service. Don't miss it if you come to Rota. Chicho and his staff always make us welcomed.

Gotta try the Chaparron if you like whiskey and run. Chicho is the man! I gave him what I didn't like and he came up with one of the most perfect drinks. Great bar and give Chicho a challenge and you won't be disappointed

I love the idea of a mixed drink place in Rota. However as a previous bartender I don't suggest it. I tried it several times each time the drinks were way to sweet. I don't think I ever finished a drink there.

We only had cocktails, but it was a killer night. Chicho is just the best mixologist in Europe. I had the best mojito ever. Our group of 8 all agreed and we had to have more. Hats off to Dardo.

Chicho will never disappoint in whipping up a fantastic specialty for any costumer. I've been coming here for years and he makes all of the cocktails with fresh ingredients and loves explaining you what's in them. Ask which one he would recommend for you!
