“great terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Latino Cafe in Glym has a great terrace above the sea level with a great view . Furniture and ambiece are nice, terrace furniture looks a bit used but this coffee shop is heavily frequented and always crowded in summer. Coffee and sweets are very good but food is not always at its best. If you really want to enjoy. You should eat upstairs at Libanero (great Lebanese cuisine) and go down to have a drink at Latino. The ambience is very good.

“Realy bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

My last 2 visits to Latino cafe proved that this place is not what it used to be before. I was once in July 2012 and had an overall terrible experience: I ordered salad which came late after my friend's pizza. The salad had no taste, no oil, no salt, no vinaigrette. I had to ask for salt, pepper, oil and vinegar since they weren't available on the table, neither brought by the waiter. I asked the waiter 3 times to bring them without any success. The staff were discussion near our table and did nothing do bring what I've asked. In the end I refused to eat the salad, after waiting 15 minutes for someone to bring me what I've asked. My friend found a hair on the pizza. They offered to change it but that would have probably mean only to take the hair from the pizza. The last time we went some water was raining from the ceiling and we choose to sit outside. We did sit for 15 minutes enjoying the see breeze and no one came with menus. Waiters were just moving around with no interest in giving us any attention. Just horrible! We left!

“Like in a boat.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

the restaurant is almost at sea level giving the feeling of being in a boat.
the beautiful sea view is really amazing.
the staff is lazy, not responding, not trained.
the food is less than average, but the drinks are acceptable.
