Meals and beer quite reasonable and one of the better bars in the old town though on the hill so bit of a walk unless your apartment is up there.

On the way to the old town/marina, walk down the road past the drunken monkey on your left - take the next road on your right walking up the hill, at about 200 yards it’s on the right.
