Great views, relaxed, poor toilets

The views of the beach and ocean here are superb. Great chilled reggae and ice cold beers give this a great relaxing vibe. I suspect the toilet cleaners and bar staff can be a... read more

I visited this bar in October and was very disapointed, the music was not very good, they served Skol lager, every reggae bar I have been to serves Red Strip at the very least - no Carib, Dragon Stout or Guinness. No Caribbean Rums and to top it off no dancing. Sorry for such a bad review but I would... More

This snack bar is fit for everyone , families , kids, couples , singles, teens and even the elderly ! The scenery is super relaxing, with a view of sea and a small island ! They have invested in more comfortable chairs as the ones they had in the earlier years. Music is happy and chilled , food is yummy,... More

The views of the beach and ocean here are superb. Great chilled reggae and ice cold beers give this a great relaxing vibe. I suspect the toilet cleaners and bar staff can be a little too 'relaxed' as the standards of both can be a little less than perfect. I shall definitely be going back to this place though when...

A very laid back and chilled atmosphere at this small bar on the beach. Nice simple food, a good selection of drinks and some live music make this a place to be experienced if you want to relax on a barmy summer's evening.

Much potential, beautiful view, interesting reputation. Went in person, no investment in seating area (cheap uncomfortable plastic chairs), service without a smile (closely related a grimace). Hoped for much more, it could be a lovely little escape.

A little outdoor bar tucked away on the beach with a very chilled atmosphere. I would highly recommend the cocktails
