Whereas other people's would see a steep narrow street with uneven steps and put in a handrail, in Ostuni you fill it with cushions and call it a bar. Best decision ever. Good service, cocktails and food and even a top sunset view

Service can be a bit slow but it's worth waiting. Drinks are really good and the view is great. I went there twice, before and after dinner, and both times had a great experience. Definitely recommended

We went to La Mela Bacata twice in our 48 hrs in Ostuni: The first time for pre-dinner drinks and the second time for breakfast. You need to try their fresh juices / smoothies and if you need a detox breakfast then try the Brazilian...More
