“It is a tiny intimate café and bar very near home, on a buzzing strip of Em Benaki. The spot is an excellent place to hang out during the day but really comes into its own at night, when the ornate interiors and friendly crowd create the perfect evening atmosphere. Cocktails are well made and without frills. There’s nothing complicated about Alexandrinó, just old-fashioned attention to detail and an enjoyable sense of ease. ”
