Glad we found this little spot in a courtyard off the Main Street. We just stopped off for mojito cocktails which were very good.

Tucked in a courtyard just behind the main road (easy to find as there are a couple of signs). Friendly and efficient staff. Food and drink met expectations and reasonably priced. Good music in the background too.
