We went there on a hot afternoon and wandered among the maze of streets and restaurants and churches. We found this little outside cafe just outside the walls were we had a very inexpensive lunch. It is well worth a visit and should be on everyones itinery.

The food was great and the staff very friendly. Was sad as the place was very quiet. This had nothing to do with the quality of the food probably just the location as it away from the main part of Tourist Street
