We went here a few nights whilst staying at the Centara Villas and it has to be our favourite bar on the island. Fantastic food (we recommend the deep fried barracuda) and great value alcohol in a chilled setting. What more do you need? We were made totally welcome and looked after by the couple who own the bar, who... More

Not only are the food and drinks amazing, the owners are exceptional people and your visit to the island isn't complete without seeing some of their card... More
