Restaurants & Bars

Here are a few bars and restaurants we have discovered and like. They are not  always the most fancy places. Those you can find in the guides. All of them serve good food, are not overpriced, and  have a nice atmosphere.

This is always ‘work in progress’. We hope to add names as we hear from our guests.
