Love this place. Every time when I am in Pana I go there for drinks and to listen to the live music. And every time at the bar, you find people to talk to. A good place, not to be missed.

We ate dinner here and found the food not only good but plentiful. The service was friendly and we were there when no entertainment which suited us. No need to book.

The pizza was good and their pineapple natural juice was amazing. Overall this is a good place if you don't have to worry about your food budget. We paid close to 200Q for one pizza and 3 pineapple natural juices.

Ate here with a group. It is a very good Italian with lovely Pizza and Pasta but the music was great when we were there and would have made the trip even if the food wasn't great which it was.
