Friendly, cosy and chilled out bar close to the marina and beach. Reasonably priced cocktails, beers, shisha and snacks on offer. The bar staff were incredibly welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable and provide us with the very best of service. The décor in here is so cute – think Turkish/Morocca with lamps, incense,... More

Stayed in Can Pastilla for 5 days and I think we visited here every night. The cocktails were to die for! (Apart from the Lemon Manhattan....) The best around and reasonable prices too. Very chilled atmosphere and the shisha was an added benefit. Highly recommend this place!

Nice place to chill out and drinks lovely. Ordered a Mexican wrap the chicken was very poor quality and inedible. Think it was frozen and heated in a microwave and wrapped in a wrap with wet lettuce and wet tomato which was supposed to be a salsa? Chicken curry good tasting and chicken was good quality no idea why the... More

This place is seriously relaxed but at the same time has a definite vibe. Has a wide range of tobacco and drinks. Get comfy on the floor and chill out!
