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.

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.

Stopped for a quick drink during a prmenade walk and stayed for a couple of hours. Drinks reasonably priced for it's position but the nibbles you get with each round of drinks is what kept us there. The staff are very friendly and very attentive, it is also a great place for people watching

We stumbled across this bar by accident one Friday night. It was relatively quiet when we sat down at 22:30, but by 23:00 it was full, without a spare seat.
