A small little cocktail bar in Praia da Rocha, one of the key resorts in the sunny Algarve, Portugal. We do cocktails, and we do them for reasonable prices, you can always get a deal from this family owned cocktail bar.

We came upon this place by chance. We wanted to come to the Indian restaurant there is next door and found this cafe! This cocktails are excellent and you can get two for €7! I recommend the “balls deep”
