Come with an appetite. Meals are standard price for this city but pricy compared to home in Australia. Big portions, but not a big range, but good internet. Interesting local decor.More

We went quite early around 12. They only served some part of the menu by then. We ordered pizza. It had thick base and tasted good. However it was not great. Some of us could not finish the pizza as it was acceptably big.
