Funky place, easily located opposite Brown St. Excellent food (plenty of latino style), good choice of beer and drinks. Personable service by staff, cheery relaxed atmosphere.

I wouldn't have thought of booking dinner here as I thought it was mainly a drinks place but I'm glad we did because the food was superb and the atmosphere really nice. Quite moody and romantic. Service was really pleasant. Had a great night.

This place is full of character and yummy food. Try the arepas - cornbread sandwiches - and the cocktails made with freshly extracted cane juice. Love sitting in the colourful booths outside by the pizza oven. It's a delightfully different experience at night and during the day.

If you want a good selection of local craft beer, good food, and friendly service, don't miss Conch. Happy hour provides additional incentive during the week.
