Situated right on the main beach overlooking the bay of Mylopotas the most famous and crowded on Ios. The intimate Bar is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a cool cocktail such as caipirinha or Mojito or even just to enjoy an extra cold beer on a hot summers day. Every evening you can relax to the greatest chillout tunes the island has to offer.

“Good food shame about the attitude”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We visited here twice in May and August 2013. When it was quiet in May, nothing was too much trouble and the food was excellent. In August, when we arrived no effort was made to acknowledge us or clear a table so we left. We came back to give it a second chance - the food and drinks were probably amongst the best in the Greek islands but the service was , again , with attitude. You don't tell off your paying customers for having the temerity to ask for extra milk in their coffee- Basil Fawlty eat your heart out!

“Good beach cafe”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Nice smoothies (circa 5 euros and very nice), draught Alfa beer in iced glasses, interesting cocktail offers. The smell of freshly brewing coffee is attractive. A range of sandwiches and snacks at reasonable prices. We had BLT each (circa 5 euros) and as a light lunch, one would have done between two, had we realised they were big. A combination of canvas chairs and sofas make the seating arrangements flexible, all Nader shade.

Its only a small kitchen and therefore when busy at lunch it's a rather slow job. It might be helped if they deployed the staff better, or maybe only having only one person taking orders helps take the pressure off the kitchen?

Anyhow, it's good so worth a visit. Take another iced beer while you wait.

“Friendly beach bar with tasty alcoholic smoothies!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We ducked into Cantina del Mar after spending some quality time in the sun at Mylopotas Beach in search of some frosty beverages, and we found some excellent ones in the form of the alcoholic smoothies. We tried the Del Mar with vodka, raspberry sorbet and mixed berries and the Mexican with tequila, lemon sorbet and strawberries and they were both great and potent at 7 Euros each.

On the finger food front, we were less impressed, as the nachos (6 Euros) were made with nacho corn chips and covered in cheese whiz. The sandwiches looked better, but we didn't get a chance to try them. We would have ordered breakfast, but the last order for eggs is at 2:30pm and we missed the cut off.

Location is great. Right on the beach with easy access to the sea and tons of comfy seating.
