The Sportsman Bar is the place to head to for some excellent snacks options, primarily suited to an uber cool crowd who love to hang out on the usual American snack options - fish and chips, churros, among others. The best way to enjoy it though, would be with some excellent mocktails.

It's an ex-pats owned bar with mainly European customers, which gives the good banter and friendly atmosphere . With Max and Jayne being there six days a week , you've always got someone to ask for advice. Directions (but not off Jayne ) lol 😃. Most of the customers are long stay, and are always willing to have a chat.... More
