We stopped here for an ice cream after we saw a sign on the beach offering 45 flavours. The waiters were friendly and welcoming but the lady who was scooping the ice creams barely acknowledged us or our children sadly. It's on the pricier side...here at 2.50 per scoop in a cup, extra 50c if you want a cone! The cookie crunch was delicious, the kinder flavour was more like stracciatella so a little disappointing. There were more like 25 flavours but that's enough! Nice decor and clean toilets.More

We did lots of research of bars and restaurants before our holiday to Alykes, and Buca was top of our list to try. We chose to spend the day on their sun loungers at the beach, and ate lunch in the bar. It’s a beautiful...bar/lounge and is very clean. Sun bed hire on the front row were €15 per day (2 sun beds, umbrella and small table). Competitors are charging between €8-10 per day, which feels more reasonable. Visiting in September there are plenty of sun beds available at all of the bars along the beach. We would head to the beach early, but I never saw any of the bars with all sun beds taken during the day. The service at Buca is brilliant, and you can order drinks from your sun lounger. Staff are friendly and helpful, and I could see there were repeat customers there each day. Our lunch was lovely, and I had a frozen margarita cocktail in the afternoon which was really good. I think cocktails are around €10-12 each. It wasn’t the cheapest day out for us - with sun beds, lunch and a couple of drinks to take back to our loungers I think we ended up spending around €60. It was a lovely day, so it was worth it. We also visited one evening for a drink before we headed out for dinner, which was nice. It was very quiet with only 3 other tables occupied. The wine was nice and the sound of the sea and the view of the sun setting over the mountains was perfect. Buca serve their main menu throughout the day, up until 8pm, when they then switch to sweet dishes only - waffles, ice creams etc. We will definitely visit again when we return.More

Visited here in June, with a group of friends and then revisited during a holiday in Sept 2022, with my husband. During both visits we had lovely cocktails whilst watching the sunset. Cocktails aren't cheap but then you are paying for the quality and the...setting. Would recommend.More

Very lovely looking bar - just look for the white one on Alykes beach - with great food and Kevin, Dennis and Leah were all super friendly. Great selection of food (delicious) and impressive array of drinks and ice cream. Just a lovely bar to...sit and enjoy on holiday. Cafe Del Mare style chilled music. Felt special...!More

Buca definitely has the best ice cream in Alykes. Over our 2 week holiday we visited several times and sampled many of the 45 flavours. Every one we tried was delicious.

I absolutely love this beach bar and we came here everyday. Sun beds are thickly padded and though not the cheapest on the beach it’s well worth it to be looked after by Kev all day on the beach. He is an absolute legend. Nothing...is too much trouble. Great selection of food (delicious) and impressive array of drinks and ice cream. The iced cocktails are amazing!!! Lovely to come here at night as well as it’s so chilled out and has great customer service. Costa (the owner) is always on hand and is super friendly and I even bought some Buca merch to take home. Love this place, can’t recommend it highly enough.More

Great place to relax with a drink while watching the sunset. Drinks were slightly more expensive but worth it for the beautiful setting. The bar is very modern with a good choice of drinks.
