You can sit up on the balcony and watch the world go past. Not many places where you can have a beer and food. this place makes it easy with really good food at a very reasonable price.

This seemed to be the hotspot for travellers of all types. The food is ok but definitely not the best place in town. The real value of going here is sitting on the balcony having a beer.

The drinks were nice and cold. We did try the Malibu fish which was really nice and big portion. It is noisy, but that's kandy. Reasonably priced. Ended up here twice.

The Pub is a regular bar/restaurant when I come home. The beer, food, staff and the ambience are the main reasons. I have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. The staff is very courteous and great conversations. Must visit for any traveler.

The food was good, although a lot spicier than I expected. It's not expensive and had a nice chilled out vibe. The staff were very friendly and put a smile on my face :)
