Popped into here with high expectations after reading TA reviews. A little bar, simplistic and basic, that to be honest lacked atmosphere, although Frank (a very quiet and unassuming man) was more than welcoming. We did enjoy the Mango cocktail but as there was only...More

Barbados dollars we paid in. Prices are little cheaper than other bars. They have a cocktail special 2 for $12 which is good value. Nice bad to sit & watch the world go by.
