Popped into Gabbana for a quick lunch time drink (we are on holiday) and the temptation for a Manhattan was overwhelming and so I endulged and how happy an I? A really nice place to spend a couple of hours watching the world rumble by. Good service with a smile.

Central and right on the promenade overlooking the beach. Fast friendly service, fast wifi and a great place to have a coffee and watch the world promenade by.

Very nice cocktails being served here. As it's on the seafront, you get a very good view of the sea.

Lovely place to stop for a glass of white wine and bite to eat after a big walk on the promenade in early afternoon. Went down to sea afterwards to soak feet in the natural pools - very pleasant!

Had a truly delicious salad with roast chicken, feta, cooked peppers and salad leaves. Hubby had a pulled pork sandwich and food was really lovely. Waiters all very amenable and the position and view of seafront was an added bonus. Great for gluten free peeps!!

What a wonderful place.. Great service, great venue, great food.. Overall a warm, wonderful place. Great to hang for a cup of evening coffee watching the world go by or even a glass of wine :) Have had light snacks there too and a great place to just spend the evening. Carmelia is so sweet and helpful..

Thank Anjanast
