First we were asked to move from 2 to 1 Tables we had a Group of 10 which would have meant sitting at the corners of the table. (the Cafe was not busy) the service was slow and our table waiter was extremely rude. The cafe also smelt unpleasant. I have not experienced poor service of this nature for a long time, it was very disappointing.

This is one of the few restaurants on the island where you don't need to make a reservation. Therefore it's touch and go whether you'll get a table straight away and therefore you must take a chance. We went there twice and the first time the service was extremely quick and friendly but the second time they were a staff member down and it was messy.

The food both times was of a good standard but on our second visit the staff were so run off their feet they didn't have time to bring the Parmesan cheese for the pasta dishes and condiments until the end at which time we'd just about finished our meals.

I didn't like the cold metal chairs.

Nevertheless, definitely worth a try.

Had 4 drinks there today. Iced Coffee and Iced Chocolate were full of more ice than anything else. Mangoe smoothie was tasteless as was the mangoe frappe, which was left half drunk. All pretty expensive for a below average product. Service was good. View/outlook is excellent.
