We had avoided Amaro because of some of the mixed reviews here, but when I received a gift certificate as a Xmas gift, we decided to give it a shot. It is a lovely courtyard restaurant, and even though rather short of staff for the...More

Tonight, we had a lovely dinner underneath the arcades. A mexican, lemon soup, Italian salad, a vegan burger, and some local beers together with great live music made a nice evening!

It's supposed to be a "TA certificate of excellence" place, but the speciality pizza is pretty bad. Tasteless cheese, beef was dry and had a bad taste. It's not inexpensive and definitely not worth it. 15 % Tip is added without your consent, which is...More

Local restaurant, invites you to live Yucatan's ambience thanks to their tables in an outdoor terrace. Polite treatment and reasonable prices. The avocado pizza is wonderful, you have to give them a chance

The hamburger was a greasy affair with a patty even MacDonald's would reject. The potato wedges were under cooked and covered in a reddish oil. That was my dish. My wife had a fish dish which was passable but didn't come with anything else other...More

Yes, there was a fab guitar / singer on a little stage. It was not 'traditional' Trouva music when we were there. Hope that helps!
