Brought a friend here for lunch and a pint today. Was absolutely an awesome experience. Burger was really good and the selection of beer was good. Nice and quiet in an open square away from the hot sun. I would definitely advise you to come.

To get to this place head down the high street from The Protea Hotel and you go down a small alley, it is easy to miss but well worth finding. It is not anything to look at compared with the posh restaurants on the high...More

We love this spot because we always feel like we're tourists. Hidden in a passageway, you pop through into the "beer garden". The coldest beers, tastiest Pizzas and steaks are always available and the super friendly and efficient staff keep us coming back. There's even...More

Glad we found this little spot in a courtyard off the Main Street. We just stopped off for mojito cocktails which were very good.

Tucked in a courtyard just behind the main road (easy to find as there are a couple of signs). Friendly and efficient staff. Food and drink met expectations and reasonably priced. Good music in the background too.
