In one word: perfect. We love this spot and go back almost every other day twice a year! Not because of the spectacular menu (its basic and good) but for the super waiters, good music, great location and friendly owners!

Have been to Kalu Bar many times - it never disappoints. Simple menu, well cooked, great bar choice and friendly, helpful staff. A great place to sit and enjoy the shade with a cold beer. Can't beat it.

We had a lovely lunch here. The food was great (yes we tried the tropical salad, it was as good as everyone said) and the beer was cold !

Another great experience at the Kalu. It's so friendly and relaxed. The food is good too and quite reasonable. Always worth a visit.

We had lunch in this restaurant when we went to the beach. The majority of us had the Tropical salad which really was lovely and so refreshing. Value for money and very popular. They finish serving early though so you need to go for lunch...More

Only knew about this bar because of the great reviews. We were shown to a table straightaway. The burger was lovely, tuna salad and wraps fresh and delicious. Caught a glimpse of tropical salad with tempura prawns on a kebab - looked awesome, perhaps for...More

I think this bar is open until mid October and then closes until about March. It is on the beach so I suppose it becomes too cold as it is an open air bar.😁
