We took a break in our tourist trek and had a wonderful afternoon break at Alex. We sat outside and enjoyed a piece of strawberry cake and a cool beverage.

Went here for some post-concert drinks and food. The beer was good, the cocktails were strong, and the food was tasty. But our waiter was grumpy and sarcastic to start and then just plain rude at the end. I'm sure there are friendlier places in...More

They have brunch buffet until 14:30, but we decided to order something from the menu. Two big salads, fries and drinks were 27 euros, wich is a bit overpriced. But the service was excellent, fast and nice. The atmosphere in the terraze is very recomended...More

Tired of Market sausages, we sought a place with salad or vegetables to balance out our food choices. Found Alex on Main Street with English menus, great beer, and nice variety of salads, burgers, and sandwiches. Highly recommend.

We just had drinks, there was a good range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. We could resist the waffles, these were good. We sat outside on a sunny afternoon.

Very pleasant breakfast choice in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. The buffet selection variety will satisfy every European taste. We were lucky to pop in without a reservation, but booking a table in advance is recommended especially at weekends.
