Great place to watch the world go by. We initially found the Ritz and decided to have a drink. It was really relaxing and we decided to have dinner. Lovely menu and everything was very nice. Again very clean and tables all sterilised regularly.

The Ritz cafe has a lovely ambience. Staff are great and there's a good cafe menu. We went several times during our two week stay.

Nothing special, but ok. We had the burger and the salad. Salad was primarily canned foods. Burger was very basic, but tasted all right. All in all, fine place for a quick bite.

By far the best ice cream in town. Fabulous on a hot afternoon when you’ve had enough of sightseeing or trailing round the tourist areas

We should have known this place wouldn't be great as it bases itself on The Ritz in London yet the menus all have pictures of the food on it (always a bad sign). My boyfriend had the veggie burger which seemed to be out of...the freezer, I had a margarita pizza which was ok - but you can't really get pizza wrong.More

Excellent location, right in the center of the city. Just stopped in for a tea, sat outside and was a very relaxed atmosphere, watching the world go by. The staff were very attentive, and pricing I thought was less than what I expected

We did order some lovely Sundaes but on the board they show the price of €2.95 but in the menu no price. At the end we got charged €6.95 per sundae. Upon questioning they said the price €2.95 was for takeaways only. Very misleading.

I am not 100% sure but would assume that at one of the busiest times of year it would be best to book at table in advance
