“Our favorite place on the island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This little gem of a place made our holiday. We would sit here for hours and watch island life go by. The best coffee, best cocktails, best service and best shade from the scorching sun. It's not part of the tourist trap and you won't get any hassle from the gift shop guys. A quiet little oasis that we will miss greatly.

“Jazz at Sal Rei”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Italian proprietors play the finest selection of Jazz and Blues at their beach-side diner. An ideal place for hip visitors to avoid the afternoon heat and indulge in cocktails and a variety of tasty snacks. Highly recommended.

“Great place for a Boa Vista Sunset - even in the morning!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

Quirky little bar that look like a boat in the middle of the street! (I think it was once the harbour office)

I enjoyed a delicious mid morning cocktail called Boa Vista Sunset. If you visit in the evening you can see the real thing!

Our drinks were served with an array of delicious nibbles. It is a great place for coffees and lunch too.

Walter, Romina and staff are friendly hosts who are ready to share their local knowledge with you.

Fab Bar - see for yourself!
