Balaclava (Oberoi) local area

Hi,

Could anyone tell me if there are any restaurants and shops within walking distance of the Oberoi hotel? If not, how far are the closest restaurants?

Boyfriend and I have 2 weeks booked there Oct 2015 and I'm starting to worry now that we are going to be restricted for eating out in the evening (doesn't matter so much in the day as we will spend days out exploring the island).

Is there a bus from walking distance to the Oberoi, to other areas where we can eat out at night? Are taxi's an option? Are they reliable, safe and reasonably priced?

I'm hoping there must be some way of eating out, as the Oberoi does not do AI and I believe only has two restaurants.

Thanks

Hi Bronia,

Thanks for the reply. I'm still not sure whether there are any restaurants, shops (or hotels whose restaurants we could dine at) within walking distance of the Oberoi. Are you aware of any that we could visit? I'm aware there are towns that are within close driving distance but it would just be nice to not have to drive out every night in order to dine out.

Are the restaurants in Pointe aux Piments within walking distance of the Oberoi? They look a good half hours walk away but it's difficult to tell on the map!

Thanks

There really is nothing within walking distance. Hotels such as Oberoi and Maritim are isolated and you will need a cab.

Oberoi is isolated. You will need to either take a taxi or have a hire car to get to restaurants, shops etc.

The restaurants at Pointe aux Piments are not within walking distance of the Oberoi.

In fact nothing is within walking distance of the Oberoi as already stated above.
