“Very interesting place!”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

Just had a couple of beers here, but I feel comfortable with sharing a review.

Not the best service at the bar, but the dock and the place layout are great! Music was cool, too.
Not very rich in drinks options, though.

“Great bar train wreck restaurant!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Fab for drinks enjoying the open mic night on Monday's with a cool pool section to sit around and watch the fish...

DO NOT eat here unless you want to wait 2 hours for food and probably not get what you or here's when it does arrive.

“just great..!”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

When you enter in Babalu bar, u don't only eat and drink.. u just arrive in a place where people are awesome, friendly, interesting..don't have enough word to describe it...

I actually just want to say that ; if u want to :
-enjoy conversations
-have a lot of fun and crazy stories to tell
-do jam session with a mic, a guitare, or any kind of instrument that u can make with GREAT MUSICIANS
-eat well fresh and very nice food
and for a so CHEAP price ....

come and visit this place, which can very easily become your second family...

Lots of kiss and love guys,

Love u :)

“Atmosphere and character”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Atmosphere, great music and character describe this bar. There is a relaxed feeling and friendly bar staff. I have spent many an afternoon chatting with staff and enjoying the deck over looking the ocean. There is even a large cut out in the floor where you can watch fish and occasionally get treated to seeing large green moray eels or stingrays. I love this bar! Every Monday there is live music in an open mic format...absolutely fantastic!
