“Great for no nonsense tasty food”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Great for no nonsense tasty food! A great view down to the sea over roof tops and close to the Flora where we stayed so handy for a good fry in the morning or burger and chips in afternoon- great food at great prices!

“Still up to scratch”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

Re-visited several times during recent two week holiday, having enjoyed it last year. Was convenient for us on the walk between our villa and the old town.

Good honest no nonsense British fare of high quality, served by friendly staff. We used it for snack lunches, more substantial lunches and early evening. Not really a place in our view to eat later as it's primarily a bar with TV sport. Best enjoyed in daylight hours on the terrace when you can enjoy a view of the sea.

Sandwiches, pizzas, English breakfast, curry, chilli we tried em all. Always good and very good value. Drinks prices very fair

Highly recommended
