This amazing beach bar is associated to Villa Nhabanga next to the Bilene lagoon. We visited twice during the past few days and it was so good that we will probably do so again tomorrow. Food takes time but we weren't in any hurry The food was tasty, the chilli sauce out of this would! Lovely beach music and atmosphere with a small splash pool and Shower Has a snorkeling spot in front of the bar. They very succesfully created a small artificial reef for the most beautiful small fish, really enjoyed the snorkeling!

Service is very laid back. the location is good and the beach facilities for scuba diving is great. Busy with tourists enjoying the relaxed lifestyle. The food was average and a bit overpriced.

We took a boat to Babalaria and we ate delicious food there. Great atmosphere with free wifi. We also did some snorkelling and the fish is easily seen without going too deep. Loved it.

We had a chicken burgers and fish which was not bad but the chicken burgers is processed crumbed I&J patties which you can buy at any checkers and not worth what they charge for it. Expected battered fish but received something which we are not even sure what it was. We had R&R and beer. 5000MET price tag for our lunch, there are other restaurant options in Bilene.

ever think of being stranded on a deserted island. This is a place where one goes to get away from everything and have a blast. Friendly staff, great prices, great snorkeling spot, if you can overlook the yuppies with their jetskis then make sure you find this place

My wife and I had an amazing lunch at Babalaria. My wife had the prawn pasta and I had the Russian sausage and chips. The portions were generous and tasty. Telmo was our host and was very attentive to our needs. Great vibe. A huge shout of praise to Lee and Roger.

Friendly staff & the best waffle & ice cream! Enjoyed the view & vibe. Was a bit expensive with food but at least the food quality is great.

Our first experience was good. The service was ok and the coconut cocktails were great. However, as the holiday went on...the service and quality of the food deteriorated. We were mostly disappointed on New Years day. We got there, the place was filthy. We were given second hand coconuts and what appeared to be used straws. It was like they didn't care.

Good day, Firstly this is our buzziest time of the WHOLE year. We have been buzzy constantly since the beginning of Dec 17. We are fully booked a year in advance for this period. Even this year is already booked. Everybody has been raving about our quality and service in food and drinks. We had a BIG BUZZY great 31st NEW YEAR PARTY till 7am!!! We/I opened at 10 am again. We never reuse cocknuts there are to many in the country to go short. I was there on the 31st till 5am and then back at 10am when you were there. Wish you had the time to let me know you were unhappy as i was there... Lee Renniers

Fabulous location, vibey and fun, especially for a younger crowd or the young at heart! Good selection of food and drinks, although as the New Year wore on, standards dropped, both in terms of availability and the maintenance of the place. Hopefully once the main season is over, it will revert to a better standard.

The food was great and excellent views to the beach. The place needs a little polishing to give back its initial shine :)
