A drink here turns into an hour of top-grade people-watching. It’s one of the best places in town. The waiters are genial and the drinks well prepared. They come with an array of snacks that can be a meal in itself. Best part of the...More

Get a front row seat to watch life go by. Great people watching, and great weddings going by. Prices are very reasonable. Street entertainment is also very fun. Definitely stop by for a drink or two

My wife and I stopped off for a drink here to watch the crowds of people walk by. Staff were friendly and attentive. A little on the expensive side but we were served quite a lot of nibbles to go with our drinks. Recommended.
