Ana's is an outdoor venue with unassuming decor where you will have a great time while in La Cruz. Enjoy an inexpensive but filling breakfast ( eggs and bacon, hot cakes, French Toast, a large bagel with bacon, egg and cheese) every morning, or be part of a musical party at the end of your day with different bands on...

The worst meal we had during our whole vacation. Many menu items not available, including the daily special. They allow smoking in dining area, ugh! Cheap drink prices and good rock and roll. If you want to party and don't care about the food, you can have fun. Definitely a 60+ crowd.

Had to experience this place which feels like you are in the Jungle but really you are very close to the Marina and Bay. It is an interesting place which attracts interesting people and the few times I have gone there have had good service and good food. This is a place you come which you just need a slice... More

You may have to pour your own coffee. But the food is wonderful. Best breakfast in La Cruz. You can have a full breakfast and coffee for 80 pesos. Live music 4 nights a week. It doesn't stay open late but it does not have to. Clientele in 50s plus and very friendly. My favourite place to eat.

Was recommended this place for the love music. There was band made up of a drummer, guitar/singer, bass/singer and a sax player! Very cool indeed! Not to mention the guy who came up on the stage to play the washboard and the three guys in front of the stage playing the spoons!! A little while later a young man from... More

Usually excellent 50-60 music for listening and dancing. Barry and Ana are the super friendly couple that have operated this "hit" of a place. Personally, we have been going there for years. This place keeps you young. ☺. 👏👏

We will go back today around lunch time. We both had the standard eggs with bacon, sausage or ham, that came with potatoes , or rice and toast or tortillas. Two glasses... More

Have always enjoyed an evening at unusual spot with very interesting stories & history. Have to vet the band ahead to make sure it's to your listening/dancing pleasure. The ribs were always great but not being served this year and their days of operation have been cut back (retirement coming?). Often a fun spot to spend at least part of... More
