Awesome location overlooking the ocean. You can even see the action on the reef where the kiters and windsurfers (I know windsurfing is so 80s, but Germans love it). Food was ok but nothing to write home about.

We made a reservation as we had never been here and we had just landed and we were all thirsty and hungry. We picked this spot due to location and they had live music on Sunday nights. We arrived to a very busy outdoor beach bar, what we expected, we could not find anyone that worked there, the bartender was... More

A surfer's paradise - great burgers, good happy hour, wonderful atmosphere. We have been there numerous times and always had fun. Bit hard to find, but worth the hunt. We do miss our favorite waitress, Rachel.

We were looking for a place to pass three hours in between connecting flights. Based on other reviews, decided to give Surfers a try. BBD$24 / 15 minute taxi ride from the airport. Oh My Gosh. If Disney was looking to stage a quintessential beach bar movie set, Surfers would be it. Funky "shack style" hideway on a spectacular stretch... More

Surfer's Bay is a great place to relax with a drink and watch the sun set. The scenery is spectacular and the bar has a really cool vibe. When we visited the service wasn't that great and the food wasn't as good as other places on the island, but we definitely don't regret visiting as we had a really relaxed... More

After looking on TripAdvisor and seeing all of the excellent comments about this bar/restaurant we decided to give it a go as our apartment was a short drive away. We decided to go for Happy hour between 5.30pm and 6.30pm and then have some food. We were going to Oistins but thought Friday night would be really busy so decided... More

My boyfriend and I happened to be staying a few steps away from this little bar for 8 days. The setting is very nice, secluded and right along the beach with a beautiful view. Food and drinks were most certainly overpriced, however tasted great and it's one of few food options in the area. The shrimp and chips were definitely... More

Great cocktails 5:30-6:30 during happy hour while you watch the sunset. Recommended after a day surfing. Relaxed atmosphere

Although plenty of people rave about Surfer's Bay, it really has it's limitations. Nice setting? Sure. Good food? Well from what we saw, it's very mediocre & overpriced. Oh & it takes an age to arrive - or not at all in our case. We were there with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. Some of us ordered... More

This was my favorite place that I visited in my week on the island. It's a little bit out of the way but once you find it, you won't want to leave. We weren't sure of the protocol so we called and asked for a reservation. We didn't need one but they went ahead and gave us a table right... More
