We were there for two times. First evening we stop at first row from city centre and pay much more than second evening when we go to other side. Also food was much tasty there.

This is a fun place - lots of fun,food and stalls. It is lively with people and food and plenty of cats waiting for a handout. Definitely a great place to observe the vibe.
