Cheeky Monkey's are getting only 2 stars... 1 for the music that was played an 1 for the bouncer outside that seemed generally nice. My main issue is with the lady behind the bar. Waited at the bar for 20 minutes when it wasn't even busy for a drink just because she kept serving ALL the people she knew before... More

Such a funny place to go for a night out! Met lots of other people travelling and made some great friends there! Everyone gets up and dances in the tables and has a blast! Competitions and games galore. Is the place to go for a night out in Byron!

We lined up for 20 mins to then get to the front to be questioned as to how many drinks we have had. We had an 18 year old with a group of 28year old people and he stuttered. He wasn't let in because his answer was "the wrong answer". We all had one or two drinks with our dinner.... More

We were given the "free dinner" card by happy travel company. We queued for 45 minutes looking forward to our free meal to be told that only it was only a curry for free and they had run out and you had to buy a drink first before ordering. We spoke with a barman prior to joining the queue who... More
