“NIce spot to have a drink over looking sea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

This was a spot on place to stop for a drink and check emails etc as they offered free Wi-Fi. The food was ok, nothing special but filled a gap to keep you going in the afternoon, it was aways busy so that tells you something doesnt it. We stopped off here a few times.

“continuous support”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Just returned from Los cristianos and returning again over xmas &New Year have been to balu bar on every trip over last10 yrs. We have found the staff very chatty and friendly. To all who have complained over a short period of time regarding having to wait 10 minutes for service, you must realise that the bar was very busy when you were there as you have said. Does this not speak for itself.

“Great views, nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Prime location, lovely views, friendly staff and decent food. Couldn't fault it. The Chunky chips are a must with your meal. What better way to spend an afternoon or evening with spectacular views over the water. The chairs are very comfortable too. I also liked the notice that requested patrons to wear a shirt in the restaurant.

“Fantastic menu and great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

This is a definite must visit while in tenerife as the views are amazing and the kids area enables us to relax and enjoy the great atmosphere and fantastic food knowing the kids are having just as much fun in the safety of the restaurant. Highly recommended and Ma (the owner) ensures the great atmosphere!

“Lovely beach views and friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

Well everytime we visit Tenerife the very 1st stop after checking into our hotel is the Balu bar to enjoy a good meal (the chunky chips that are served with some dishes are delish) and drink a nice cold pint of Amstel over looking the beautiful las vistas beach, ahhh our holiday has started :)
Great reasonable priced food, good beer and lovely people with good facilities overlooking a pritty beach what more do you want, brilliant! Wish we were back there now!
