Also great for a night-cap Metaxa. Run by a great couple of ex-pats for years, overlooking the harbour this is our favourite, when we can get a seat. Both the cats and the ducks will greet you warmly.

Fantastic bar in a magical location. A background of 60s & 70s music a number of cats either sleeping or waiting their turn behind the lame duck for the hosts to fill their bowl with cat food and very friendly hosts. Loved the place.
