2 floors up and you have a view of the ramparts and the locals playing cricket. Add some beers, garlic prawns and pasta and it is perfect. Good food, good prices and a great place to watch the passing parade

We had drinks here while watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean. Great spot as well to watch children and their parents playing in the meadow adjacent the west ramparts. Good drink menu, decent prices, great service.
