Best bar on the island to watch the sunset without a shadow of a doubt. Food is reasonably priced and very tasty and the service doesn't get much better than here. While it might look like a shack it is full of love and excellence. it is a hit with locals and tourists alike and with the beach right on... More

Given its amazing setting right in the beach, this should have been a great experience. This however was the epitome of ripping tourists off - the burger had clearly been cooked in stale oil or whatever the cooking method used there was an unfresh smell and taste, the bun was stale and the lacklustre salad you wouldn't serve to rabbits....

Was really pleased that I chose the burger, great tasting meat and cooked perfectly washed down with a delicious smoothie. Nice location with some great street stalls nearby.

We started visiting Surfside during our first visit to the Island in 2011 as my Husband is a football fanatic and had researched venues showing matches before we travelled. Location is ideal as situated on the beach so he can watch footie and I can bathe or shop as central to town centre too. Always busy, more so when sports... More

Nice beach, not many beds available, but the bar is great to grab a Banks beer or a light lunch. A good place to meet up with friends for a sunset chill out over a few drinks.
