Things are pretty relaxed and everything is very casual around here. Cafe and restaurant hours vary greatly so we suggest you seek information or make bookings to avoid disappointment. Also dinner restaurants sometimes close relatively early – it can be hard to eat out after 8pm. Adapting to the local lifestyle will make your stay enjoyable. Early to bed means early to get up and surf the next morning!
These local establishments tend on the cheap and cheerful side. They mostly serve good honest food, but if you want a romantic or fine dining experience then take a look at the ‘Eat far’ suggestions.
