Not called Mate for nothing!

Called here most evenings on the way out for supper. It was clearly quiet at this time, but we were always made very welcome. The lads that run it seemed to find time to go about their business and have a chat with us as well. The nibbles were the best we had anywhere in Bardolino. Always some... read more

A must on your visit to Bardolino, great cocktails from the guys, great place to just sit and people watch while you enjoy well made cocktails and nibbles. Apple Manhattans, espresso martinis and a guava Collins just my recommended cocktails, but just try and work through the list of cocktails the lads will make as we did lol.

This is a great bar which I've visited several times over the last 5 years. Situated at Via Goffredo Mameli off Piazza Luigi Lenotti, Mate bar provides an excellent selection of tasty and reasonably priced cocktails. On my last visit in June I tried several cocktails from the new menu; the Breakfast Martini and Whiskey Sour are particularly nice. If... More

This is probably the friendly, best value Barry in Bardolino. We had fun here with great snacks, and great gin and tonics, we will be back for sure.

We holiday in Bardolino every year and always visit Mate Bar for its great atmosphere and friendly staff. The bar has an excellent selection of wines, spirits & beers & of course, cocktails! I would recommend the Tequila Sunrise, Piña Colada & Brandy Alexander :-)

We spent two weeks in Bardolino where we visited this excellent bar every night after reading the reviews on trip advisor. The cocktails are the best cocktails we've ever had and the service is excellent and friendly. I would highly recommend this bar if you fancy a drink after your meal or any other time. We will definitely return to... More

Really good small bar in the back streets. Extensive choice of cocktails we loved the Vodka Martini and Expresso Martini. Good prices. Free nibbles. Very friendly staff. Great place to people watch after dinner. We would thoroughly recommend a visit or in our case several!!
