Great for people watching and a nice view of the sea/beach, always seems to be a crowd gathered on the terrace, the food/coffee is ok and we found the service good.

Venue came highly recommended for cocktails and the proximity to the beach. View was spectacular. Cocktails lacked flavor and presentation and was very average.
