We usually came here for our deco drinks after the dives. It's a cute little restaurant with a wide selection of food (traditional + pasta, pizza etc.). The servings are huge, I usually only had the small pizza and often trouble finishing it. The beer is cold, the staff very friendly, and the atmopshere lovely. We only stayed on the patio because it was so warm, but the interior looked nice, too. I found the way they organize your bill so cool! Go and find out yourself :-)

I keep returning for what I think is one of the best chicken salads on the island. The place is nicely done up and the staff very friendly. The food takes a while to arrive as it is prepared on order, it is however well worth the wait. Prices are reasonable too.

Generally I used to enjoy eating at this place, even though my pro-environment conscience used to prick me for this operator encroached on the public pavement (as so many others did at the time and hence). Yet the last time I patronised this restaurant (with 3 other family members) the part time cook seemed to have it for me as he poured loads of salt in each of the cooked dishes we had (probably he took exception for some public spirited comments I make now and again in the local (and international media)
