Not a safe place for women. We were a group of 10 women having after dinner drinks when a group of men begun harassing us, including by groping us. The bar staff did absolutely nothing to intervene despite our obvious discomfort and request for some help. Ironically, half an hour later the barman threw a block of ice at my... More

More of a Bar than a cafe, came here a number of times with our 2 families of 9 people, kids between ages 8-16. Fairly friendly with space for the kids to sit down and enjoy the table football and pool. Also free wifi to allow them to send pic to their friends and facebook.....etc. Mostly busy with the odd...

Friendly staff and good place for a beer. You go here solely for the party vibe and there are frequently live bands. The loos however are awful. Oh and make sure you have a go on the slide!

Good atmosphere, pool table, table football and music. If you like the stock market beer price game you'll also find this too. We used this a a meeting point before heading out later.

Popped in here for a beer or two on our last afternoon. Reasonable prices on a par with resort, although in the evening these change every 100 seconds, bit mad!! There's a slide down to the toilets....crazy

The funny thing is that they have display menu of drinks that change price every 100 sec. So if you pay Jackie daniels 6€ in next round it could cost 8 or 6 or 5€, you can't know. But you can wait for price go down and than buy. Funny,,
