More of a drinkers bar for Brits than a restaurant. Eaten there a few times and food was ok. Staff are very friendly and service is good. Toilet facilities are reasonable and probably better than other places in vicinity. They have entertainment on most nights and also have Trip Advisor meet ups once a week. If your looking for a...

This used to be a brilliant restaurant, but sadly over the years no one seems to start using it until about 10pm because they know that it is one of the only bars that stay open late, they shut the front of the bar off and everyone has to move into the back of the restaurant, the staff can not...

Not a place I would recommend for eating, poor lighting thus no ambience. On the positive side the bar is always buzzing after about 10.00pm. The people I have meet over the last couple of years were great company however, it does seem to attract a fair view of what I would describe as low-life. I always get the feeling... More

This was the place to be last season....sadly it's gone right downhill ! The drinks are overpriced ( also check your change they frequently make mistakes in their favour....also if you've got a tab keep a check on it.....lots of people are being ripped off)

We went to this bar most nights on our holiday, since it was charming and always busy. We would sit and play cards and enjoy a few drinks, I would recommend the Pina Colada! The bar was very popular with the British but had a mixed set of customers so it didn't feel like being in your local. The staff... More
