“Could be great!!..it's not!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Cafe del Mar has the perfect location and the view is wonderful at night, plus the delightful evening breeze. Spoiled by terrible slow and not friendly service...an hour for our cocktails to arrive and over priced..went twice never again! Guess the owners don't care cos they make all their money from the late night scene...oh well..but it's a pity!

“Great view, overpriced”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is a nice place to have a drink on your first night, maybe watch the sunset. It is overpriced, but not too bad if you're just having one cocktail and want to take in the area.

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Great location.
Terrible service.
Both visits!!

Choose to sit upstairs along the wall, but forgo getting a drink or ordering from the menu. Plenty of other choices elsewhere as far as restaurants go.

'Nough said.

“What a waste of the best spot in the city”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

This place has the best spot in the old city: on top of the wall, by the sea.. Can't beat that.

However, the owners of this place have (for many yealive relied solely on the spot to make a profit. The service is terrible, the music can be too loud sometimes.. The result: the atmosphere is so lousy that it makes you forget that you are in an amazing spot.
