“A great place to relax”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Asterix ticks so many boxes for us - from a nice cup of filter coffee and a fresh orange juice in the morning, to a lovely salad for lunch (especially the dakus), to an ice-cream mid-afternoon, to a huge glass of (very good value) rose wine and some variety snacks later, to great cocktails in the evenings (beware the mojitos!) - and a place to sit and chat to people. It's just great! - and everybody is so friendly. One of our favourite café-bars anywhere, let alone in Batsi!

“Excellent Bar”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We only used Asterix as a bar in the evenings so I cannot comment on the food which is served during the day. We found it very comfortable and one of the few places where my husband could get a large draught beer. The prices were very reasonable and the lady running the place was very pleasant. We enjoyed sitting watching the people going past or the football on TV. Also it was nice making friends with the little dog. The wi-fi was very good here, my phone flickered into life every time we sat down. In fact there was an internet corner at the back of the bar. There was also a pool table. Try It!

“Great watering hole”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Please be aware that the Asterix is essentially a great value bar that does very good "pub grub". The service is always good and the welcome is always very hospitable. It's a top place to have a beer, overlooking the beach and the bay, just across the road. It's also a lovely place to stop for a night-cap, after an evening out at one of the many very good tavernas in Batsi. Used by holidaymakers, locals and expats, the Asterix is an all round great watering hole!

“Brilliant Place”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

Have spent lots of time here. Wonderfully welcoming staff. Excellent service. Good food, not especially Greek cuisine, but good tasty omelets, burgers, chicken wings etc. Great value too. Love the atmosphere. Never a dull moment!
