Lovely lively little pub with sidewalk extension. We opted to sit inside the pub to hold the bar up. Friendly staff, helpful and pleasant, as a result visited a second time. Well worth a visit, rock music playing, and more reasonable priced refreshments considering beachside location. Try it you'll like it.

We spent maybe four or five nights here - it opens late, later than anywhere else, and the music is rock. However, the DJ, on seeing my tee-shirt, made my night... More

The music was more 70's and early 80s rock so it wasn't too 'heavy'. The staff were friendly and efficient and drinks were reasonably priced. This is a super bar and worth a... More

Stopped by today - good music pumping but way overpriced drinks - it was in tourist central - and i guess it all felt a little cheesey. Anyway what is one to expect in an "old town" on the waterfront in a european tourist city!

Such an awesome place! Great music and very friendly staff. The cocktails were delicious and varied! It was our favourite spot to end the day, great views on the harbour and the sunset. All in all great atmosphere! Highly recommended.

Music was sometimes good and other times not so great. Some nights the bar was busy with a good atmosphere but many other nights it was pretty quiet.

We came here on our first night (Saturday) and found the bar buzzing and playing some good music. Drinks were reasonably priced and enjoyed the night. The following days, we walked past and the bar was half empty and the music irritating.
