another nice thing about the JBR is the proximity to the harbour. For a bit a change of scenery you can walk over to the harbour area to shop and stop and have a cold drink.

Calamari was fantastic, everything else? Typical of the area, took forever, overpriced for the portions. The staff act like you are bothering them when trying to order drinks/foods, which is mind blowing!
