This little cafe / bar hidden in the old town is fantastic. Huge range of quality food, good range of drinks, great roof terrace and a lovely intimate atmosphere. Just a shame they don't offer home delivery for their food (hint hint)

A friend and I dropped in at 9.10pm for a drink on a Tuesday recently. First time in that bar. A bit odd that a Chinese family were the only others inside, who I suspect were the owners eating chinese food? Odd but not offensive....More
