It's like walking into the a bistro in the middle of a tropical island... wait a minute, that's exactly what it is. It's worth every penny, and it's practical too. Kinda gets crowded around 10pm so ask for reservations.

Find out more about the man who defeated Napoleon and all the naval history involved in this fabulous historic area, where massive and beautiful boats are seen from all over the world. It's great during the night, when the nightclubs, bistros, and cafes come to life all around the area. It's also affordable in every way and especially great on Christmas (free champagne) and New Year's.

Its truly magical, as the name suggests. Fire-throwers, fire-eaters, and acrobats set the scene for this majestic night club and restaurant where the young and old go to dance with fabulous music ranging from techno, dance, dance-hall, hip hop, rap, and euro-trance. It's definitely THE place to be and it's located in Nelsons Dockyard.
