“Excellent Mojitos ******”
Reviewed 24 September 2012

What a lovely little bar this is - we have been reading many reviews and thought we would try it for ourselves - not disappointed at all.
The only problem we had is that we walked from the Funana/Garopa twice to sample a Mojito here and the place was not open so do not go by the times that you read - when we finally managed to get a Mojito I must admit it was well worth the wait. Just make sure that you read the drinks menu accordingly at "happy hour" because not all the drinks are included watch for the ones that have * at the side.
My husband and I had 2 each and the bill was 20euros we also got a small plate of spicy crisps given to us with the drinks - we should have asked what they were as they are very tasty.
Just wish we had more time in Cape Verde as we would have gone back here without a doubt.
