A very nice bar at a strategic location close to Villa Jovis (you can rest after the long walk before the Roman Villa). Unfortunately we could not enjoy the landscape due to thick fog. However we relaxed with few ice creams.

We had walked from Capri town to discover that Villa Jovis was closed and instead had a look at the amazing views from Parco Astarita (really not to be missed). On the way back down we stopped at Bar Jovis for lunch and had a sandwich each and a drink. It was lovely - very clean and inviting with a... More

We ended up here after we walked all the way up from the harbour to Villa Jovis - only to find the villa was closed! Near the top was this little cafe where we stopped off for lunch. It was absolutely worth the walk! The views are amazing. We sat in the sunshine and had fresh ham and tomato sandwiches,... More

Great stop after (or before) visiting Vila jovis. Great view and nice sandwiches (not cheap but after climbing all the way up it's worth it).

The bar has a nice setting and makes for a pleasant stop after visiting the Villa Jovis. Coffee and ice-cream were good, as was the limoncello cocktail. The bar is very pricey, which doesn't come as a surprise on Capri, as everything is about twice as expensive as in Naples. Check your bill, we were overcharged (one item charged twice),... More

You will remember the orange and lemon drink (non alcoholic) long after you return. And yes, the hike to the top is worth it. When you look at Villa Jovis on the postcard of Capri you will smile knowing you were there!!!

We last visited this small bar 15 years ago on the way back from Villa Jovis. What a surprise when we returned this September to find it upgraded and extended to a restaurant. We had a great lunch of ciabatta with ham and tomato and beer/Aperol spritz. Agree with other reviewers that it is a good place to stop after... More

If you are making the trek to villa trovi. Then this little gem is a great place to stop for a rest. The tomato and mozzarella salad was simple but really nice. The view over the port is also great. Prompt and polite service.

We fell upon this place whilst doing a long walk. We were on our way back from Villa Jovis and had had a lovely walk. I joked as we walked back down the hill that I could see the pub from here, (knowing Capri town was a good 20 mins away). We then found this place. We sat and had... More

Drink stop that lengthened into lunch. Plastic chairs and tables so very informal with a fantastic view over the Marina. Great drink selection and pleased I went with the limoncello with tonic. The toasted capresse sandwich was delicious too and finally really lovely coffee. Really friendly service too.
