A lovely little bar with plenty of outdoor seating, we stopped here for a quick drink after a long day walking around. Service was very quick and the view across the canal was very relaxing.

Good stop to have a drink whilst visiting the city with a good selection of drinks. Great location near the canal and close to popular areas like the red light district :)

view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
