Great little family cafe/bar just off the beach at LC. We visited here as the PR guy said they have a children's play area. Whilst very basic it is well stocked and well shaded so the kids loved it, this meant we could enjoy a few cold ones in peace with great views of the beach and ocean. The food... More

We spend a lot of mornings in this relaxing bar overlooking the sea. Anita , Andrea and Andy are really friendly people and make our morning drinks most enjoyable. It isn't an eating place for us as the time isn't right but the food always looks good when it comes out. We look forward to our next visit in June.

We love this place, the staff are so friendly, always happy and eager to please. The views are fantastic, overlooking the beach and walkways. Tried the pasta, fish and chips and burgers. All really good but the burgers are soooo good!! Cannot praise this place enough.

Every time we have eaten in the Balu Restaurant, it's been excellent. We went here this time for their famous Fish & Chips. It was Delicious. All fresh produce, home made chips and tartar sauce. Very reasonable price too. Lovely staff. I can highly recommend

We visited this restaurant on Friday the 3rd of March. The food was great I had the lamb chops and my wife had the lasagna, both of us had the home made chips, both meals hit the spot and were cooked the way we wanted.

The views, food and staff at this restaurant are second to none, sadly you can't please everyone!!!!!!!! excellent service every time we have been here. I would highly recommend you try this restaurant. Most people with a little bit of common sense would carry a small amount of cash with them (as we always do) just in case it isn't... More
