Nice crowd, and I liked the BIG mojitos so much I had to book a hotel room afterwards ;-) It can get quite crowded towards the evening, so make sure to secure your space as early in the afternoon as possible… However, service is quite efficient.

Sunny terrace and very relaxed place. Seems to be on holiday when having a drink. Quite crowded but very efficient service.

Watched the Euro Cup 2016 here. Big screen and wonderful setting - just so cool. Drinks were pricey and is CASH ONLY - but the atmosphere was great.

the place is cool underneath the arches with a very casual outdoor seating. unfortunately its quit dirty but the relatively cheap drinks make up for it.

A nice sunny open bar with swift service at the counter. The location on the stone arches is what make this place special. Nice hang out!

It all depends on how busy it is and what weather/day of the week it is, Sometimes you can come and many tables are free, the sun is shining and hanging out with your friends consists of going to get drinks at the half empty bar and just relaxing while observing the place d'Europe (there is the 5).

This is the place to be if your a 18-yars-old girl, full of make-up and without self-estime. The service is at the bar, the prices are insanely expensive and the barmaids aren't very plite.

Pros. The place, just beautiful, convenient access with a great urban atmospere. For a sunny day, a very good spot for a drink Cons. The choice of beer is rather poor, Heineken on tap. The place de l'Europe is located downhill and therefore the sun fades away early.
