Came in the afternoon to have the kids. Local beers were great value and cold however the pizza oven was not working so we had regular electric oven pizza which was disappointing in taste and consistency. Pricing was high also for the quality and venue.

This was my 3rd visit there and once again, we had a blast. The atmosphere is very laidback and the bartenders were very friendly and fast at serving. We really much enjoyed just listening to music and shooting pool.

Came here for drinks and had a great afternoon. It's a bar cum restaurant cum lodge cum hotel. There are loads of different and diverse options. Really atmospheric and a sun trap to boot. Cheap but tasty food and cheap beer. Perfect.

It's the bar of a backpackers and the place to be for some drinks and dancing. We had a good time there. What's a bit annoying is that you first have to buy vouchers at one place and then use them to buy your drinks...More
