    Friendly atmosphere, lovely drinks and stunning views from the rooftop
    I don't know who wrote these negative reviews, but visited yesterday and couldn't believe what a lovely person Laura was!! We sat on the rooftop terrace and watched the sun go down, it was beautiful. The pina coladas, leche leche coffee and draught beer were all amazing. Laura was non stop, as was the other girl, they have been open three days, give them a chance. They are a very hardworking couple, with a lovely family who visit the Island to see them regularly. Wish them well with their new venture, they deserve it .

    Great new bar in Los Cristianos!
    A great new bar with wonderful roof terrace, we called in for a drink and ended up staying all night. The staff are friendly and there’s a really good vibe. Drinks were nice and reasonably priced. Would recommend

    Opening night at Buddies - Good Luck guys!!
    We were lucky enough to discover that the Bar was opening on our final night on holiday and popped in for a few drinks. Great to meet Andrew and Laura who are very friendly and professional. I wish them both all the very best with their new venture and look forward to visiting again in mid January.

    Recently reopened in Los Cris
    Buddies has reopened after undergoing a refurbishment . The bar and upstairs terrace have been tastefully redesigned and decorated. I sat on the terrace soaking up the rays whilst enjoying the sound system and a reasonably priced Dorada and Coke both brought to my table by Laura, who was very welcoming. The bar also has disabled access. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit and will be returning again.

    Excellent bar following a full refurbishment and new owners
    This place has just been refurbished and re opened under new ownership , those owners being Laura and Andrew ( aka the YouTuber the knightstrider) . The refurbishment is excellent, the decor is clean bright and very welcoming. The drink range is also excellent with an exceptional range of cocktails. The atmosphere is great with background music just at the right level so conversation is not drowned out . Staff are great ( as well as the owners ) with Michael re creating the cocktails and Catherine keeping tabs on who requires drinks . A great bar to either , start the evening or at the end with a night cap or too ( also opens earlier from mid day on some days ) . Well done to Laura and Andrew for doing a great job of the refurbishment and creating a wonder bar with an excellent vibe . Already looking forward to our return Dave & Jackie x

    Fantastic new owners
    Andrew and Laura were a absolute pleasure to meet and have refurbished this little bar which is just beautiful, love your taste. Have used the space brilliantly and turned the rooftop into a beautiful seating area too. The cocktails are amazing , the whole bar is amazing. We have been following them on you tube since lockdown , they are a very hardworking lovely couple. Good luck to you both see you next time we’re over.

    Good for everyone !
    Went in early December , nice atmosphere and drink prices were very reasonable . It’s livened up that strip of bars and can only be good for the other bars and restaurants around it in the long run . With the owners popularity it’s guaranteed to bring extra footfall around there . So good for everyone .

    Lovely Family Run Restaurant
    Love visiting this family run restaurant every time we stay in Los Cristianos. Eloy, Marcos and Nerelys work so hard and the food that they supply is first class and at a very reasonable price. Beer is only 1.85euros for a full pint and the cocktails made by Marcos are great. It is a lovely place to sit and people watch right on the seafront so please don't pass it by if you are down that way

    Friendly and welcoming bar
    Great bar, really welcoming and friendly staff. We had a couple of beers to start off the night and sat upstairs on the open top balcony. Really nice atmosphere and good music.

    Drinks with fantastic music
    Called in Buddies bar after a fantastic meal at Zocos Arabic restaurant, which came highly recommended by the Knightstrider himself. Staff at Buddies are very pleasant, and the bar itself is very welcoming. They play the most fantastic music EVER. Will visit again soon.

Bar was nice and clean and the staff were very friendly. However, €14 for 2 Baileys coffees which were extremely weak in terms of both Baileys and coffee was very steep. The cups were only half full which was a shame because apart from the penny pinching it's a nice little bar.

So we were in for a quiet drink and some buffoon with a microphone attached to a fish slice taking the proverbial out of people and claiming some sort of shirt competition. Who is this loser? He was being filmed by some fat bloke who seemed to think he owned the place. Maybe he did?
Absolute turn off. We won’t be back. Plenty of other bars in the area that don’t film you without your permission! Oh and their prices are way above average.

We decided to give Buddies a try as we were passing and it seemed like it had recently been refurbished so we popped in. Unfortunately the experience then went downhill as there seemed to be some filming going on for social media with the owners and we were sat waiting almost 20 minutes to be served. thee drinks that arrived weren't the ones we ordered and the girl behind the bar was quite abrupt and said we must have ordered it! I found the drinks were quite expensive compared to other bars in the vicinity. All in all, nice place but not a great atmosphere!

Our usual bar on this stretch was full so decided to give this one try, I have always been put off by the fact that it is a Scottish bar, however we were given a warm welcome and found the customers, all of them Scottish, friendly.
A good pint of beer and remarkably good toilets. I don't usually comment on toilets but these do deserve a mention. We would have no problem returning to this bar in the future.

Visited here a few days ago as I was in the area. It looked promising from the outside so I headed in.

Drinks menu was good, good selection of cocktails. I had a few pints of the local Dorada which was a good price. I got chatting to the bar maid. After a while things started to get a little strange.

We were chatting, she told me about her boyfriend and how he likes to complain a lot and drink caramel lattes with extra caramel. I told her I didn’t want her life story and left.

Weird.

Ok bar, very small and quite expensive for what it is.
Only went as we knew the female who works there from the internet and it turns out her ability behind the bar and her attitude were not great.
Wouldn't go back, nicer and better priced bars close by.

Like visitng Buddies Bar as it is such a friendly place. Always someone to chat with and the drinks are very reasonably priced. Kirstie and David always make everyone feel welcome. If you like watching sports on tv this is a good place to go.
