We sheltered here in a storm and benefited from comfy sofas, friendly relaxed staff and great cocktails. The setting, an old house around a central courtyard, is wonderful with different rooms to discover and an umbrella canopy over the roof terrace.

Cannot recommend this cafe enough. Quiet and cosy, especially towards the evening. Beautifully quaint decor and the rooftop overlooks the surrounding houses, giving the place a really authentic feeling. Soothing instrumental music completed the chill vibe of the place. Food was fantastic as well, and...More

Okay- I was on the fence about writing this review. This place was so cool, I just wanted to hoard it away so that people didn't seek this hidden gem out. But thats not fair, it was trip advisor that revealed this spot to me....More

Didn't expect more than a small hidden café. But then this: behind a hidden, almost dodgy tiny entrance a stunningly beautiful and lovely café with rooftop terrace. Super friendly service. It's almost more beautiful than the memorial house next door ;)

Stumbled across this place, like other reviewers looking for somewhere a bit quieter. Looked up and saw the lights so followed the signs through. Loved it. Loads of different spaces to sit and chill. Didn't have food, just drinks.

We stumbled across the menu whilst in desperate want of a drink. We felt maybe we were going the wrong way whilst going down the alley way but then it came out to the small bar downstairs. After going upstairs we were appreciative of all...More

Stumbled upon this spot on the way out for a Friday night. Unassuming young man invited us in for food/drink, and in hindsight I wish we had stayed longer... A cool labyrinth of stairways and doors let up & up & up more through a...More
