Work on your smile people!

Nice trendy place, it has a lot of potential, but the staff had big problems with smiling to their guests. Very unfriendly, what a shame, since the decor and the view are brilliant.

This place is more expensive than cafe's all over Naples because it has an awesome view of the bay and a nice lounge setting. That's it. Everything else is pretty ordinary. So, If you are happy to pay a bit more for atmosphere then you will enjoy it, which we did. Outside on a nice warm day. Just go in... More

We came here for drinks on a Sunday night and were overly surprised to find the whole promenade (it's right on the coast) extremely busy - not like a British Sunday night at all! It's a very modern bar so not great if you want a quiet drink (that was not us on that particular night) but great if you... More

Tourist trap, poor service, inflated prices, bad food. Only positive aspect is the view which was blocked by a delivery lorry (to Vanilla Cafe) while we were seated.

This lively bar/café is situated right next to the water and provides costumers with a beautiful view with upbeat music in the background. The charming waiters make a big effort to please their costumers which adds to the experience and makes this trendy saturday night hangout worth a visit. If you go make sure to order a "sex on the...
