“Fab location and music”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Loved the atmosphere and music here. Lovely place to chill out. Had out dinner in here. Think they might have been short staffed as it took ages to get served. They don't sell Non Alcoholic Beer which was disappointing for me and my chicken was raw. In saying that they chicken curry was absolutely amazing when I got it back! The waitress was very nice and it was no problem when I requested to send it back to be cooked some more! It's right by the beach and a perfect place for people watching over a drink! Would go again.

“Excellent location”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Fab base just to chill out - we stopped for cocktails and to relax after a long walk and were made most welcome with free shots. Deals are on during the day on drinks and there is a 241 happy hour from 6-9pm.

“Very disappointed”
Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

So so so gutted. We have been visiting Ibiza for 7 years and even looking to buy here. Every year we come to Bay Bar to chill and relax and up until this year had no problems. Been here a couple of times in the past week or so and first time was fine. However, the last two experiences have been horrendous. Nearly walked out both times as had to wait around 20 mins just for a drinks menu. Dont sit it the corner sofas coz you will never get even noticed, we had to move and still flag down a so called waitess, we were so worried that we might not see her again that we asked that she returned in 5 mins to take our order, and fair dues she did.
Took a further 15 mins just to get a beer and glass of wine, shocking!
The couple next to us waited over an hour for their food to be told that the order had been lost and it would take 5 mins max to get the food to them, shock horror 25 mins later they chase the staff twice for an update almost pleading for some food.
I am really gutted about how terrible this place is now as the music is great and sofas are super comfy.

“Friendly and laid back - loved it”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Wandered into the Bay Bar on our last night in Ibiza. Wish we had found it earlier. Staff a bit slow but super-helpful and friendly. Food was spot-on, Thai Green Curry really hit the mark. We're a bit past clubbing but still wanted to experience the feeling of chilled-out Ibiza. The Bay Bar Cafe delivered as far as we were concerned. Music was excellent, podium dancer worked hard at it, fireater was awesome. Magician did the rounds which was fun and massages and shisha were available if you wanted. Drinks were great especially the selection of martinis we tried. Bay Bar seems to be positioned as a pre-party venue for Space and Ushuaia and these clubs are heavlity promoted on screens throughout the bar but to be honest we didnt see many (any?) clubbers in evidence. Maybe we were too early, we left at about 1:00am. All in all, we really enjoyed it and would definitely go back.
