A laid back feel on a lovely beach. Free sunbeds, friendly staff who take orders for drinks. Free use of paddle boards although we didn't try one! We had a snack in the taverna at lunchtime - best tzatziki of the whole holiday. Would definitely recommend Ben's Bar especially if you want to sunbathe in comfort and have your beer... More

What's not to like? A bar, with off beach decking to sun bathe, or beach side bathing. Great music when we were there. The staff are attentive and quick to serve drinks. Try the Sky Tai - like a mai tai but with added coconut (and may be some other alcohol!)

From swimming, to drinking, to eating, to enjoying the lovely setting Bens Bar comes up trumps. Ben and Ef are charming and a good time was had by all

Ben's bar is just brilliant. They go above and beyond whats asked of a bar. They gave us sunbeds for free, paddle boards for the kids to play on. They had googles behind the bar when my daughters broke and helped us out with treatment when she was stung. The bar is lovely, the fresh juices are brilliantly inspired. The... More

Having visited Ben's bar over the years we were excited to be meeting friends for lunch there on our first day on the island. We arrived by boat and our friends were already ensconced on the beach. They left the beach on the complimentary paddle boards to greet us. My son hopped on one only to be yelled at by... More

As other more recent and realistic reviews have indicated, this place is very far away from the usually ultra friendly and welcoming attitude of Paxiot businesses. It readily and openly discriminates about who should and shouldn't be allowed to step foot on what is in fact a publically open beach. It's menu is sparse, expensive and singularly uninspiring, and, by... More

Very bad owner behavior. He refused to give us a couple of sunbeds with a rude manner although there were a lot of them available.

not as good as it is made out to be by others but a lovely location and the food and service was ok. Very popular and has a separate beach bar with cocktails which we did not visit. Maybe next time :-)

This was a highly recommended bar, so I was very excited at the prospect of going but when we got to the restaurant we received a hostile welcome, the owner seemed very self absorbed, the food was very average. Wouldn't recommend this.
