We visited this bar for the 1st time and it’s amazing, we have been back every night of our holiday since. Sit upstairs overlooking the street fab view. Gin and cocktails are great. The owner “vicktor” has a great little bar here. 🏖🥂

Loved this place, the decor is fantastic, fun for the kids too they will think they are in a pirate ship. Cocktail mojito fantastic & the captain morgan rum the best. Staff are super friendly & create the best ambience for everyone.
