The cafe opens out on to a terrace with fantastic sea views, providing the perfect backdrop for cocktails as the sun sets. Excellent cocktails as well; all made with freshly prepared juices. Definitely worth a visit.

The food was ok although we had to wait for about 40 minutes to get a baguette (should take 5 minutes tops, everything was pre-cooked) but the views are worth it. If you get a table on the terrace.
