It is a long time ago that I was here. It was lovely, friendly staff, great food and a nice view. Indeed it's not cheep but it is worthy. I used to be a regular customer here and was not even once disappointed.

Bar review (no accomodation): This is your place if you want to enjoy a nice drink and good quality finger food while watching the sun set. Very friendly service and a nice atmosphere.
