Visa debit cards work in the same places as Visa credit cards I have found so you will be able to use your debit card in supermarkets and restaurants. Some of the small shops etc don't take cards at all so you'll need some cash. Of course, you can use your debit card to get cash at an ATM. Just check with your bank at home about the charges they apply for card use abroad to avoid any unpleasant surprises! I must say that I find using my debit card very convenient because it's what I'd do at home.
