This is really a fun bar and you should definitely stop here for a R&R or 2. Great vibe and friendly staff.

"Just go to the bar and tell him you want an R&R. You can thank me after that."

Very friendly staff and good ambiance to hang out with friends!

Fernando’s was a tradition. As we entered Ponta that was our first pit stop before unpacking. This I assume was also our very last time and the end of an era. As we entered the place had no music and as we were the only people inside we though the barman will immediately attend to us. We sat down waited a while and eventually went to fetch him. No enthusiasm what so ever. When we asked him to put on some music while pouring the R&R Fernando style he said he is first going to pour and then he will put on some music. There are too many other great places to ever visit again with such an attitude.

Such a lekker spot! The barmen knows how to get a party started with how they mix Rum & Raspberry! The best and such a jol! But beware the R&R's - they are STRONG!!

Arrived at lunch time and left at 10pm. We all had loads of fun. Fernandos is very welcoming and great tasting food (chicken and prawns) with loads of booze.

One of the original gems and the traditional first pit stop when hitting Ponta, this place became world famous due to Fernando's character and being the father of the original RnR. After his passing, his nephew took over the reigns and unfortunately being a very young man, does not have the flair of old Fernando. Sadly the place has taken quite a downturn in the last few years and especially the toilets are dilapidated and dirty - especially not lady friendly. The drinks are a bit pricier than the opposition, though still served iced. I will be back as it is a personal tradition - if you have never been there, enjoy it for the historic value, but there is nicer places in Ponta.

It may have been the place to go in Ponto but is dirty and the only attraction is the generous barman's R&R.
