Had the cheese rolls and Texas burger. Both were delish. It's on the main street and rail line so it's easy to find. Fun to watch the people and enjoy the culture while seated outside.

We stayed at the Faros Hotel so got a discount on our food. Compared to UK the prices are very reasonable. You can find cheaper but all the food we had was good.
