We popped in here for coffee on our first visit to the town and decided to have moussaka as we had been warned by a friend not to come home without trying it.

The staff at Babel's really put the effort in one huge screen and three other 40-55" tv's in HD. Great staff kept us topped up all night. No better place to watch the sport in this area by far . First class
