“Good for people watching”
Reviewed 15 February 2013

Service not great. Not a classy hangout, but certainly good for meeting the locals. Curry is made by an Indian chef who knows what she is doing! Great taste

“This is a bar.”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

Fairly comfortable, relaxing bar. Nice outside area suited to smokers. Well priced. This is a local spot for a drink after work, but avoid it during season.

“One of my first stops, every time!”
Reviewed 7 December 2012 via mobile

This has a fun holiday atmosphere.
The sometimes have live music and the bar is half indoors, half out.
The clincher is their "pint of prawns", medium size prawns served in a pint glass with peri peri/lemon or garlic butter.
The service is really slow, so go an hour before you get really hungry and make sure you are not impatient or in a hurry!

“More than meets the eye”
Reviewed 23 October 2012 via mobile

This bar looks and feels as casual as a bar should, and the food prices are very low, therefore good quality food was not expected. What a pleasant surprise! The service levels are very good, the food was very good and for the price, it is great value for money. Includes exclusive underground parking for patrons.
