We enjoyed it here at the Da Vinci Bar in the evening when we only wanted a drink. They do snacks but it was nice not to be pressured into having a meal. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Relaxed bar to have a drink in. Perfect for a little snack. Clean. Lovely, helpful Dutch hosts, who give good advice and tasters for the wine. Easily accessible on the way to Catalina Park.
