Had snacks which were ok. Drinks ok. I Just find the place a little depressing. It's not so bad on the terrace but needs a bit of a freshen up inside. OK to stop for quick drink up the hill but I wouldn't go all the time.

We enjoyed a few lovely mornings here enjoying their lovely english breakfast before venturing back to our villa with our supplies from the hyperdino supermarket next door. Can't fault the food quality, service or price at all, thoroughly enjoyable and good value.
