The legendary Puls 2, for years an essential stop-off on any nocturnal alcohol-fuelled tour of the Palace, has been reborn as Figa, a cafe-cum-food bar in which salads, risottos, sandwiches and daily specials join the customary roster of coffee, cocktails and rakija. The location itself – set at the bottom of a stepped street with benches and cushions set out on the stairs – is enough to ensure that Figa still retains the old Puls magic. Most of the action remains outside, especially in the evening – although the interior, mixing ancient stone walls with smart modern furniture, is a calm and comfortable place in which to confront Figa’s new lunchtime-friendly personality.
