Breakfast was said to be included by the Lynhams hotel next door. Extremely poor selection not worth 50 cents let alone the 5 euro the waitress demanded, despite being told by reception that I should just quote room number.

I had two guests on lunch and I reserved a table at Cafe Carlo mostly for its handy location in the heart of the town. Getting there we were "welcomed" by a very "distant" waitress that for the entire visit never shared even the slight hint of a smile. We ordered one starter and three main courses, the Grilled Salmon... More

We visited here as they had a meal deal for 17 euro for two courses and a glass of beer (half pint). The decor inside isn't the best, it's clean but with little soul inside, very generic modern feel to it.

Popped in for a quick lunch. Decor is a bit like a cafe. Food was delicious, deep fried calamari, fresh fish and chips, salmon with mash and green beans. The fish just perfectly cooked. We shared apple pie dessert which was very good, double espresso equally Google. Very pleasant, helpful waitress. We will return.
