Took the steep trip up to have lunch at the Jolly Roger. Fun atmosphere. Unique with friendly staff. We enjoyed our hamburgers overlooking Uvita. Stunning. Hope to come back for a sunset dinner.

We arrived about 4:30 in for the sunset around 5:30. Spectacular. What a view! The drive isn't for the faint of heart. No problem with our 4x4. The wings, and I've had many, might be the best ever! Some very different flavours- Cummin & Cilantro. Weren't my favourite but unique. Others were awesome. Unlike most if CR when they tell... More

All four of us had something different. The chicken strips were good aswellasthe wings. Cold beverages and good time atmosphere. The waiters were very attentive and spoke perfect English a little pricey depending on what you order.

This place is completely secluded, but has great wings and a fun atmosphere. The night I was there, they had a live musician (an acoustic guitarist) who was amazing!

We always find the BJR (Bar Jolly Roger) a very special place to take guests visiting our home in Dominicalito. The ride up is an adventure. (not difficult, just bumpy), and the trip is always worth it. The food and friendship abounds. Storm, your host, is a serious devotee of great food and good service. We recently attended a Live...

We had awesome wings and the burgers were delicious. We didn't have high expectations going in but were very happy. They had great beer and had a solo artist singing and playing guitar who was AWESOME. Super fun time.

You go to this place for its ambiance, view and to have some good beers and chat with friends. For that, i definetely recommend but if you care what you put in your mouth this is not its strength.
