Bars in Alykanas

Andrea F

Hi Lesley, Peter and Martin,

We're now back home in sunny (not) Wales.  We just wanted to say cheers for a great friendly welcome which really made our holiday fab.   We had great laughs playing Mike's quizzes - although we are yet to win one. Cheers again and we hope to see you again next year although I think I'll have to give Martin's cocktails a miss next time because I blamed them for falling out of there each night.
From Andrea and Terry (the Welsh couple)

Great freindly bar and in our opinion, the best breakfast in Alykanas!  Didnt try the big one (3 of everything, your name goes onto wall of fame if you eat it!), standard one was enuf for us, especially as it included fried potatoes.  Excellent quiz nights, different theme almost every night.  Takes a while to get around to the actual quiz tho, you usually have to sit thru a few games of click, which i liked but hubby got bit bored.  Only small negative, it was so hot in there, wish they had a few more fans around the place.

The best bar on the Island. The people and bar staff are really friendly Especially martin. You can get a great full English breakfast or go for the Buster breakfast which if you manage to eat it all you get a certificate. All the food here is really good. We enjoyed it so much we are going to find a home to move to alykanas Just so i can have the breakfast everey morning. If you visit zante you must visit this bar.

Me and my family are coming to Alykanas at the end of July for 2 weeks in 2008. And want to know if Busters will be trading then, as it sounds like the sort of kerazyyy place that would suit us all. With the added bonus of a full english brekkie (which will ensure one VERY happy hubby). Also (wandering if im gonna regret asking this) what is click????

Hayley T          10/10

I want to come back!!!! I can't wait to go back to busters even if i am gonna have to wait a year, at least i know everyone will be just as welcoming and helpful which will be great as i will have a little baby with me.  Hope everyone is doing well and im sure everyone who has visited busters will be looking forward to going back

Madeleine B

One of the Jungle Juice gals here from the Royal Edinburgh Hospital, Edinburgh.  Thank you so much for adding to our experience. You have such a great bar, with wonderful staff and even better measures.  We had a truly wonderful time and your games of celebrity faces and click were fantastic.  Thank you too to Martin for recommending lemon for my mosquito bites, good call. 

Claire W          10/10

Had a great time at Busters Bar.

Really enjoyed the quizzes.
Really friendly atmosphere in the bar.

Sue R          10/10

Had a great time, if you enjoy the quizes that are held at Busters in the evening you may be lucky to win breakfast for two  -  they are the best in Alikanas.  If you don't win I'd recommend them anyway.    

Steve B          10/10

Two weeks of paradise. Had a great time with the family May/June. Geordies on tour 2007. Enjoyed click and the hospitality. Many thanx Steve,Anne,Michael and the twins....

Dave T          9/10

If you want to eat early doors and not bother for the rest of the day, then have the busters breakfast.  3 egg, 4 bacon, 2 sausage, beans, tomato, mushrooms, 2 toast, fried bread, orange juice and a huge tea (or coffee if you like drinking cack).  Very pleasent place to eat as well.

The best bar in Alikanas and Alikes for that matter. Nice friendly quiet bar.

Barb P           

You must visit Busters Bar (best bar in Alykanas) Peter and Lesley are the very best hosts - so helpful and friendly and as for Martin - an absolute STAR.   The 'belly buster' brekkies were outstanding and as for the evenings - just fun all the way.  Can't wait to come back (hopefully they'll sort out the Airport sooner rather than later).

We felt very welcomed and im sure we will return with the family next time. My husband felt so at home he didnt know why he had to pay for his very promt brecky!!

it's just no right. i'll need tae come back.
Take care youse guys and err..

Kelly M           

I have been going to Busters for many years now, and i have to say that it just gets better every year!! Ron is just as great as he always has been, and after very thorough and detailed testing of every bar in the resort, Martin makes THE strongest cocktails!! Many of our nights walking home are just a blur.  Highly recommend the Golden Dream and Mudslide! Hope to sample them again in the very near future!

Louise F

John P           

    Hi Guys,

Just thought I would let you know how much I am missing Zante, The Buster breakfast was excellant even though I only maqnaged 2 whilst I was there!!  The Cup Final was a real nail biter but the Reds perseved and won through (never mind DAVE) Well hope to be coming back soon but until then take care because I care,  All the best John  

Louise S

Maz C           

Its been 2 years since we last visited you, and Phil came away with the well known busters bar certificate for eating that huge breakfast!!  We miss your wonderful wit Ron, and I doubt you remember Phil & Mazzie, but I reckon you will if we turn up again,  Just remember the couple who danced down the road, (after a few shots) and promptly landed in a ditch!!
 hate to admit we visited your sister island last year and went to Kefalonia, beautiful scenery, but the nightlife wasnt half as entertaining...sooooooo be afraid, be very afraid, cos we might be back this year!!
Only if Chick creates a new game though cos we were clicking all the way home, we reckon he should do Mr. & Mrs again  and maybe next time I will get the answers right.
love to all in Busters, Phil & Mazzie xxxx

Paul M           

Busters in a nice bar, run by really nice people, I have visited the Bar several times during my holidays to Zante and have always been more than happy with the service and company.  I also like to visit Greek establishments (Bars Taverna's, etc.) I really enjoy the entire Greek experience. Buster provide a safe place for me to take my children and I get entertained too, I don't honestly care if its an English export - whats wrong with that? After all - the Greek's dont traditionally have anything like a pub, the nearest thing they have would maybe be a kafenio or ouzeri, so the bars run by Greeks have been invented for our "holiday makers".  I LIKE BUSTERS - LONG MAY THEY TRADE!!

Garry C           

Hi again Mike,

if i offended you in my comments im sorry but you did the same with your original comments.This is the end of the matter and i hope you have many more happy times in Zante cos i know i will.

Avril W           

Hi again to all in Buster's.
Just reading through the latest comment's. Have I misunderstood acomment by Mike Oldfield?
He refered to an earthquake around October 18th?
We were there mid September to 2nd October so this must have happened after we left.
Hope everyone ok.

Garry C           

I think its me whos hit a nerve Mike.If you dont want to be " negative " as you put it keep your comments based around whether you liked the bar or otherwise not on the people who like to go there.If i really didn't like going abroad would i want to go.....DOH!!!. I always go flight only so i'm not making your hol cheap, sorry old boy.{p.s do you know the price is going up next year mmm curious}.And on the burger thing if your gonna buy me one better make it early on cos your probably tucked up in bed by 9pm thinking of what you can "moan" about,maybe " a slightly fussy child " or very loud and irritating neighbours" { of which you wouldn't get on Meteora }or " over zealous salespeople " with " chicken in spit" { this time the greeks get ridiculed for not being able to spell correctly in english,hows your greek???}.All the previous statements and theres probably more, you might have thought would want to make you stay at home ????? mmmm curious!! Happy days!!

Mike O           

Oh dear, the “some of my best friends” apologists are here again, must have touched a nerve. I’m delighted people like Garry exist and indeed make up the majority of “Brits abroad.” Like a bit of local colour, a contrived “Greek” night and an occasional plate of tsatziki but need the reassuring security blanket of pukka pie, chips and a pint. I think that you'll find that the hugely witty sheep analogy more accurately fits those that go with the crowd, leaving the "real" Zakynthos to those that want to spend their entire holiday there rather than just dip their toes in. Having said that my holiday wouldn't exist at the price it does were it not for Garry and his flock so long may you continue to enjoy it.

As for Meteora (leaving aside your arrogant and incorrect assumption that I would need to look it up), you assume that because I don't enjoy Busters I belong in a hermitage (the blissful ignorance of those too blinkered and narrow minded to see any viewpoint other than their own). It's equivalent to me suggesting that because you don't share my taste in holiday you belong in Laganas (which I assume you won't have to look up).

As I said in my last post, I'm just putting my view, sorry if you disagree with it. Happy holidays and if I ever see you in Busters Garry I'll buy you a burger, just as long as I don't have to stop and eat one with you.

Garry C           

Oh dear!! the " when in rome " bleaters are here again.I've been all over Greece and i like to eat 'stifado,dolmades,mousaka,saganaki,greek salads etc.I like to sit in a greek taverna by the waters edge drinking ouzo or metaxa.But i also like to eat the odd nice english meal and have a pint of beer and be entertained,not to mention meeting new friends and socialising.Many mums and dads with young kids find a place like busters a godsend because it keeps their kids happy and means they can enjoy themselves too.This is a tourist resort with bars and restaurants purposely built for tourists,there are plenty of other places within Greece where these bleaters can go if they want to experience the real Greece but they might have to share with the other bleaters!!! Baa baa


Mike O           

Don't want to be negative but just to put another viewpoint on here. Busters bar is a perfectly nice place run by nice people but it has nothing whatever to do with Alykanas, Zakynthos or Greece. You might just as well be in Tenerife, Torquay, Torremolinos or Telford..a little slice of England designed for people who like to go somewhere hot but can't stand really being abroad.

Garry C           

Been to busters on numerous occasions over the years from the time of opening to present.Know Lesley,Peter,Ron and Jackie from when they worked at the greedy greek in 1996,when we went back in 98 they had their own bar.Even on the last three times that i've stayed in tsilivi i've always been over to say hi.Food is still as good as ever and lesley always does me a wicked j.d & coke.If your reading this Lesley say hi to everyone and no doubt i will be seeing you again sometime.Cheers to the best bar in Alykanas from Garry {Halifax}.

Hayley T           

Hiya everyone got back ok had to fly through the storm.

Thankyou for making our holiday great again
C u all soon
Love Hayley and Lee

Avril W           

Just got back from our first holiday to Alykanas (Zante). And already wish we were back.
Busters Bar made our holiday, especially Chic.We enjoyed the quizzes and Chics click.
We won a couple of free breakfasts and won chics once (eventually). It was great we loved it.
As for Chic being so loud you could hear him in Alykes (Osborne family) He wasnt allowed a mic, something to do with the laws over there as I understand.So he HAD to shout. If you could here him in Alykes, WHY did you come in then?
Ronnie (Chics brother in law, and a Peter Stringfellow lookalike) was a laugh as well.
Anyway Chic if you read this Keep up the good work, and I hope you manage to get your flight home O.K, Oh and good luck on becomming a Grandad in new year.
     Avril&Mick (next table)

David S           

This Bar can only be described as one of the most welcoming in Alykanas. The standard of food compares with that of the best rated restaurants not only in Alykanas but also in Alykes. The breakfasts are excellent and in the evening when you get fed up eating Greek food try the Pukka pie chips and mushy peas and you will be very pleased you did because the quality is outstanding. Good Luck and best wishes to all and next year I have decided to eat at Busters and keep the wife as a pet 

Nicky O           

breakfast was great and well priced. did not like the card game on a night so went elsewhere.the bloke doing it was so loud you could have heard him in alikes

Peter and lesley W           


Pam S           

We`ve been home a week and are missing the Busters breakfasts loads, really friendly welcoming staff - thanx alot.  Had a fab time in Alykanas n also enjoyed watching the Ashes in Busters - what a result.  Once again to all at Busters, fantastic bar n see you next year.

Pam & Mark 

Mart & Kaz           

I can't say enough about this place, Busters is brilliant, but Lesley Peter and Paul are the best. Not to mention Dave who's a right laugh. Think they just about had enough of me taking photos! but I needed the reminders of a great holiday. Paul introduced us to Colin (lovely bloke) who took us round the north of the island in his disco, we had a brill day, went the scenic route. Brenda is lovely always had a smile on her face. If you like to sit round the bar in the good company of the people that run it then Busters is for you.

P.S. Hi to Kath, Chrissy & Dave, Kev, Ron, and Julie & Martin.
Mart & Kaz will be back!
