“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

We almost missed this little beauty because it's right at the end of the strip so don't make that mistake! After feeling like we were being forced into every place we walk passed we came across the Magic Bus. The reason initially we decided to give it a try was because of the genuinely friendly staff. We were asked if we'd mind being 'toured' through the menu and our decisions were made. There are a million different ways to be sold something but to be 'asked' instead of having it shoved in our faces was a refreshing approach. Both my GF and I had the burger and it may have been one of the nicest burgers I've ever tasted. It certainly helped that we were sat next to the beach with the sunshine in our faces and had a nice cold beer by my side but i would highly recommend!

“Very Cool Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

This is one of the best places on Perissa Beach. The owner and staff take excellent care of their guests on the beach with the chairs chairs (as in not letting other people steal your chair if you walk away to get something to eat), and the restaurant has a cool vibe and relaxed. The drinks and food are great, too.

“Bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

We arrived in Perissa late afternoon and wandered up the main strip to the end looking for somewhere for dinner that night. Nikos showed us the menu and we explained we were looking for something more traditional. Well with that he then gave us directions to a couple of other restaurants and hoped we would have a good evening. He was quite happy to lose our business and said that he was more than happy to recommend other establishments. So we stayed for a drink and moved on that night.

However two days later we decided to walk to the Magic Bus for lunch and boy did we get spoilt. They remembered our names and Chris went through the menu with us. My husband was then set up with his vitamin as Chris liked to call it and I had a fresh fruit juice. I think we spent two hours sat eating lunch and watching the world go by. Couldn't fault the food and the beach bar restaurant is so comfortable.

We came back the next day and spent the day on the beach after having our breakfast with them. Nikos took our towels down for us and laid them on the beds until we had finished eating. So that day we had drinks on the beach lunch in the restaurant and some more sunbathing.

Both of them are very interesting and have many stories to tell. We did go back the night before we left to have a drink and say goodbye.

Would really recommed that you take a visit to meet them and just soak up the sunshine on the beach.

So Chris and Nikos, this is Sharon and Chris saying Thank You for making our holiday that extra bit special. YAMMAS.
