“Great little bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

I visited the Buddha bar a few times, including for Halloween and everytime it's been great. The drinks are cheap and they have a huge selection and the Asian food is fantastic and fresh. Highly recommend.

“Best Curry in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I definately lost count of how many Bombay Curries I consumed at Buddha, too damn good! Buddha's the place to be on any given day of the week with a great atmosphere, rooftop bar, lounge with movie screen and live music every week.

“Great wraps!!! San Pedro's biggest bar!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

The Buddha is a great place on all 3 levels of this building you will find a something different. They have live music 2-4 times a week and TV's everywhere for all your sports. I really like the wraps, the pesto chicken wrap is great. Also they have Brooklyn Brewery IPA's.

“Social scene of San Pedro.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The most popular place in town- full of travellers, spanish students and ex-pats. Great Asian and Guatemalan cuisine. The Indian tea and the brownies are incredible!! Most dishes are around 40Q/$5, happy hour is 12-8. There are three floors, the main bar, restaurant and film room and rooftop bar. The wi-fi works best around the bottom floor bar. Pool tournaments take place every wednesday evening and they have great live music quite often.
