“Very chilled out!”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We spent a couple of days using the sunbeds in front of AloBar as we found this end of the beach much quieter than the other end, especially on weekends. There are only about 20 sunbeds here so it never gets crowded and they are free to customers. We had lunch twice here and can recommend the pittas, they were lovely. It is a beautiful setting and we enjoyed sitting drinking beers in the deckchairs and just enjoying the view - very friendly staff too. And not forgetting the resident black and white shaggy dog who we loved to watch swimming in the sea with his owner!

“Eat Drink and Relax”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

A great place to chill. From pita bread snacks to full calamari all the food was good and great value. I recommend the AloBar Salad. Sunbeds below were free. Owners made us very welcome every day.

“Perfect lunchtime beach bar”
Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

Does this sound okay? It's 30 degrees. You're lolling in a deck chair under a sunshade, gazing out to sea with an unbroken view across a sandy beach. There's an ice cold beer in your hand and the mouth-watering smell of a hot chicken pitta wafting up from the table in front of you*

What are you waiting for then? That's the daily lunchtime scene at this place. Get to it.

*Male readers may also be interested to hear that there's a very clearly surgically-enhanced, super-buxom blonde sunning herself in the next deckchair who, by the third pint, could certainly be classed as attractive. No extra marks have been given for this as her presence can't be guaranteed, but you never know...

“Great place to enjoy the world go by!”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

Great place to relax and watch the waves roll in! Sun lounges on the beach and a great front patio if you don't want the sand between your toes! Food was quick and nice... Highly recommend!
