So many craft beers, and a cool chill bar atmosphere. The food menu is a little small, but still adequate and delicious. Friendly staff and great prices. I would definitely recommend this place to beer lovers and local spots. Bathrooms are a little gnarly, but...More

We had the chicken Casado lunch. The potatoes on the side were amazing! No English speaking staff when we visited but my Spanish is just passable. Great CR beer selection.

They have a great local Craft Beer selection. Being from BC Canada we are used to good craft beer and micro breweries. The beers we tried at Stiefel could easy compare. If you like beer, go here.

This is a place that when the rain comes, you don't mind getting stuck without an umbrella. Great beer. Excellent service. We didn't have a meal but the locals did and they looked good.

A very small space, two floors, dark and alternative, totally worth it. Food has some highlights and best deal on craft beer. Try "Maldita Vida" Beer.
