We had a main course each and drinks, would definitely recommend as a nice place for a beer or a glass of wine in the Plaza by the cathedral but the food was average, good location and a decent stopping point between our hotel and the beach.

5 stars doesn't have to mean expensive, stiff & starchy. This is a friendly, good value, simple café serving from breakfast to dinner; happy to serve just a coffee or a meal with a glass of wine. We went for breakfast every day - watched the oranges being squeezed for our juice, enjoyed freshly made coffee and wedges of toasted,... More

Quick paced place. Good coffee and you can get some snacks too. Try ti get a seat removed from the door in view if the blasts of cold air in the winter. Good honest place

Poped in this cafe walking around the town centre. Nice atmosphere, good customer service, good food for reasonable price. Was quite busy when we had been there - mid-week afternoon.

Had some good, inexpensive wine outside at night; tried their pizza the next day -- okay is about the best I can say about it. Service is friendly and efficient.

Friendly staff, good coffee, nice atmosphere. The sandwiches average. Good place to rest, especially if you have kids who can play safely on the square.

Caravanserai is literally by the side of the Cathedral and has a good atmosphere. Nice music and always busy! Service is a tiny bit slow but the setting and the pastries are worth it!

Extensive menu. Excellent food and service. With the beautiful Artzain Onaren katedrala as a backdrop it could not have been a more pleasant experience. Went once for lunch and once for dinner.

Just stopped for afternoon snack. Horrible soggy chips, worst ever nachos with fake cheese sauce. Bad service. Expensive for what you get and charged more than was meant to on menu (maybe VAT not added until after or something).

The place looked good as there was no seats left and usually that is a good sign! NO Sooooo wrong. The food was shocking to the point we had to go eat something else after as my boyfriend could not get he taste of that food off his mind. We didn't have wifi to look at trip advisor and are... More
