Randomly passed by with friends and stopped in for a drink because it looked like it would have amazing views, it did!!! Got a table right at the fence and sat and chilled with a beer for hours.

This was our first visit to this café and what a great little find. We were heading into the Old Town when we chanced on this superb café. A lovely interior with great furnishings and superb decor but it's the fabulous terrace with the stunning views out to sea that drew us in. We had just been to Daimlers Bar... More

Went here having read the reviews and looking for a good coffee shop with great views. Sadly although it does have the views it's no really a coffee shop. While the Coffee was OK but there were no cakes or pastries. Most people seemed to be having alcohol and burger type food so really more of typical bar /restaurant .... More

We read about this place on trip advisor and checked it out on the way to the marina. It was so good we called in on the way back! It is the epitome of tranquillity. The staff are chilled, the music is chilled and the atmosphere is chilled. We had cheese burgers for lunch, cheap and delicious. On our return... More

This was a lovely place for lunch, the menu was very good and reasonable, I particularly liked the mozerella, tomato and basil bruschetta. It was a beautiful setting on a terrace over looking the sea, the staff were lovely, the only thing is don't be in a hurry as it can be quite busy and there were 2 people serving.... More
