Have been going to this bar for many years and the welcome is always great. Jackie and Malcolm have always time for you and the drinks are generous. Good selection of music from 60sto80s no TV to distract. We've had many happy nights here and met many great people

Over the years, we have seen, unfortunately this square deteriorate, bars opening and closing, no regular opening hours, and terraces which have views of the cluttered car park with bikes and cars revving up at all times no longer making it a nice place to take family and friends to.

This place is typical of old spain and what you would expect with waterfalls and chillout space, the local council are going to spend a lot of money transforming the plaza, it will be interesting to revisit and see what they have done

I didn't realise that this little square existed at the back of the beach close to the marina but will be a frequent visitor now. Very pretty with a fountain and bars around it. Has much more soul than the marina and better prices too

This place is slipping, the little French bar with the microwave ovens and the cats has now closed! Thank god but small blessing are, Once upon a Time has had a major improvement and Malcolm and Jackie are still running one of the best bars on the coast. Love the place - especially Budys!

Several bars to choose from with Buddy's best atmosphere ( no tv's ) and excellent irish barman Shane. This is not an Irish bar.
