Feedback 2013 - Restaurants & Tavernas
Honestly, we did more than "eat" on our holiday!
Just thought a "Food" review would be useful to others. Thanks to the iPhone I kept a daily diary. Cost of 2 courses & drinks ranged from a very reasonable €10 to an unreasonable €40+ per person.
As always, a thoroughly enjoyable time.
