Bar review: Malindi Beach Bar, Limassol

By Stephanie Robb

Malindi Beach Bar is exactly what it says; literally on the beach, it is ideal for a relaxing drink during the day and night. Belonging to the Uptown Square family, the bar’s quality is almost guaranteed as we have come to know a high standard of quality from this branch of restaurants and bars.

Malindi is located on the outskirts of Limassol, near St Raphael Marina. The bar is quite big, able to seat visitors both inside and outside and to cater to all kinds of tastes, whether you are there for a cocktail, beer or wine. It is great to enjoy either basking in the ambience of the sun, or under the soft light of the moon.

The drinks menu has enough variety to put a smile on anyone’s face, even for the young ones although the highlight has to be the cocktails. Even though they offer little originality, they make up for that in taste. The frozen strawberry daiquiri is a delight. Another great choice is the frozen pina colada – the ultimate drink to enjoy under the heat of the sunshine.

The bar also aims to put a smile on youngsters’ faces and to those who are not fans of alcohol by serving some great mocktails. The Bay Breeze made with yogurt, honey, pineapple and banana, and the Wild Forest, made with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and cranberry juice, are great on a hot day.

Moreover, there is an extensive wine list perfect for a late afternoon or evening drink. Futhermore, Malindi serves most spirtis and mixers as well as draft and bottled beer and all these can be enjoyed with bar food or a seafood option.

However, despite having thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Malindi, as the location and drinks were great, I was not impressed with the service. I had to order three times until I finally got what I wanted. For its size, Malindi has fallen into the unfortunate trap of being understaffed and the staff were not welcoming or pleasant either.
