In the centre of town you'll find Video Bistrot. The menu is inexpensive and you'll find the place heaving at night. The food is good, albeit slightly different to your usual Italian fare. As a couple, we did end up sharing a table with another...More

Central and excellent restaurant besides cheap. Accompanied with a great white wine of the house. The bittersweet pumpkin, delicious. Very tasty sardine pasta or cous cous fish, not forgetting the swordfish Involtini. Friendly waiters and everything very well. There is always a line.
