After looking on TripAdvisor and seeing all of the excellent comments about this bar/restaurant we decided to give it a go as our apartment was a short drive away. We decided to go for Happy hour between 5.30pm and 6.30pm and then have some food. We were going to Oistins but thought Friday night would be really busy so decided... More

My boyfriend and I happened to be staying a few steps away from this little bar for 8 days. The setting is very nice, secluded and right along the beach with a beautiful view. Food and drinks were most certainly overpriced, however tasted great and it's one of few food options in the area. The shrimp and chips were definitely... More

Great cocktails 5:30-6:30 during happy hour while you watch the sunset. Recommended after a day surfing. Relaxed atmosphere

Although plenty of people rave about Surfer's Bay, it really has it's limitations. Nice setting? Sure. Good food? Well from what we saw, it's very mediocre & overpriced. Oh & it takes an age to arrive - or not at all in our case. We were there with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. Some of us ordered... More

This was my favorite place that I visited in my week on the island. It's a little bit out of the way but once you find it, you won't want to leave. We weren't sure of the protocol so we called and asked for a reservation. We didn't need one but they went ahead and gave us a table right... More

The view is breathtaking. There was a bonfire and live music. It got busy but the bartender kept up with the demand. Hint...where good shoes so you can take a beach walk!

Surfers bay is in a beautiful location. The views are incredible! We visited on a number of occasions, as we were staying just over the road. We're were a little disappointed in the food selection. There was not a single healthy option on the menu. Despite this, it was a great place to hang out, drink cocktails, and watch the... More

Fantastic location practically on the beach and with excellent cocktails and great food. It's got a really casual, low key atmosphere, popular with surfers and a great place to meet friends in the evening for a casual dinner.

We went on the Reggae and bonfire night, it was really busy but food came quickly considering the numbers. My husband had fish catch of the day and I had a burger, loved the salad and raspberry dressing. Great atmosphere but died when the group took their break as there was no music playing and many people left. Enjoyed watching... More

We were brought here by some local friends who knew how amazing it is and they were right. It is hidden beside the ocean and had a rustic charm to it. Great ambiance. The bartender was super friendly and eager to make sure we had an amazing lunch. We had the big Kahuna burgers which were juicy and delicious. There... More
