Along the narrow canals are many small traditional wine bars and intimate restaurants packed with locals and tourists.

The food is fresh with good use of distinct flavours with Mediterranean essences and a dash of Asian influence. From Tuesday to Sunday there is also an elegant cocktail bar and lounge with lively evening entertainment and in summer a second bar with outdoor terrace opens so guests can enjoy the spectacular views.
