    Hi, I agree the restaurants apart from breakfast are formal and lack buzzy atmosphere that kids like. there are so many good places to find in the town, you will want to wander out each night/lunch.

    Their drinks bar is expensive. I did say don't go if you can't afford it. Just enjoy the scenery and eat and drink elsewhere because it will be cheaper. Anyway I hope you enjoyed your stay.
