If you are looking for a quirky little bar then look no further! Home made lemonade was amazing and the Mojitos were really good. The manager made a fuss of the kids :)

You should see this place for its amazing sunset view, for handmade lemonades, maybe more. As we re leaving the place, they gave us bookmarks. Thanks again for the gift.

Perfect place to have a drink and/or have sthg to eat. Yogurt with honey and special sandwich were very tasty. They serve homemade lemonade but didnt try that. Service was fast and decoration was relaxing. Go up towards church and enjoy it...
