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.

On arrival in Napoli, late afternoon, I decided to walk along the boulevard after the hours of sitting in an airplane and taxi. Back and forth there were many restaurants and bars and this one looked nice. Quite a lot of seats outside on this sunny day were available. I sat down and waited. Tried to get attention from the...

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.

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.
