Polpeor Cafe offers so much more than just traditional cafe fare. For the price of a cup of coffee, you can enjoy the amazing setting on Lizard Point.
However, for a very reasonable cost, you can choose from a wide range of delicious dishes including many different freshly caught fish.
Puds are often not given much thought, but the Hendys prepare these homemade delights with just as much effort as the rest of the courses.
No meal would be complete without trying the Cafe's special Jubilee Meringue.
During the summer, take your own wine or beer, choose a table looking out to sea and enjoy! The most perfect location, the most delicious tastes and no need to rush.

dADa is a restaurant decorated in the style of Dadaism. It's whacky yet stylish. The food is a bit like Mongolian Barbecue: you fill up a bowl with fresh meat and vegetables and it's cooked for you and brought to your table in no time. And it tastes wonderful!
dADa also has a wonderful selection of drinks. A good place to go before a night on the town and then return the next day to cure the hangover!
I absolutely love this place.

While in Amsterdam don't miss a night out at the original Supperclub restaurant. It's an amazing dining experience where you recline on beds and are entertained by artists and musicians throughout the four course surprise meal. A real thrill!
Hare Krishna-run Govinda vegetarian restaurants are found all over Peru.
Vegetarians do not get surprise meat on their plates, and for £1 per set meal, budget travelers will have difficulty finding a cheaper place to fill their tummies.

Artichoc is a fantastic chocolate shop that can be found on Koninginneweg Road. Catch the No.2 tram, alight at Emmastraat and walk back 20 yards; you will find this lovely, family-run shop on your right.
Check out Da Groene Lantaarn located on the canal (Bloemgracht 47) in the Jordaan district - this fantastic fondue restaurant is off the main drag, but well worth the trek.
Every kind of fondue is on offer, but no meal is finished until you have the chocolate fondue. It's a terrifically romantic place, and we were lucky enough to be there in the snow - it holds many happy memories.
This is an excellent, clean restaurant serving traditional south Peruvian food in a beautiful garden setting.
If you are intrigued about Peru's famous raw fish dish, ceviche, but not sure where would be safe to eat it, this is a good place. The standards are high and the place is very popular with wealthier locals and business people. Still, prices are cheap for westerners. Service is excellent and you may get to hear local live music even at lunch time.
The restaurant is on the outskirts of the city but all the taxis know how to get there. Av. Dolores 111, Sun-Thu closes at 7pm. Fri-Sat closes at 10pm.
Enjoy locally brewed real ales and good food at one of the most beautiful spots in the Peak District. The pleasant beer garden is lovely in the sun, while the simple stone floored Stables Bar’s real fire makes it cosy in winter. A good range of German beer is available. 7 bedrooms in the hotel make it a great place to stay. Spectacular views from across the road, and lovely walks in the area, especially along the old London-Manchester rail line.
Buses 4 (Mon-Fri) and 173 (daily) stop outside, while the hourly Transpeak Manchester-Derby bus and Sheffield-Stoke bus 218 both drop on the A6 for a short walk along Monsal Dale to the pub. Located on the B6465 off A6 near Bakewell. Phone 01629 640250, Website: www.monsalhead.com
Charming and relaxing guesthouse. An authentic Morrocan riad with its courtyard and sunroof terrace.
Ideally based for pedestrians and market lovers due to its central location in the heart of the Medina, just five minutes from the very popular place Djemaa El Fna.
The whole team makes you feel at home: friendly and helpful with good local cuisine.
I particularly enjoyed sauna and massages at the end of day after exploring the city. I am looking forward to going back on October for another break.

"Real Spain" holidays on the famous Mother’s Garden working farm - you stay in a restored cottage for up to eight people, with private pool, breathtaking mountain scenery, wildlife, wine, food and culture of the Priorat in southern Catalonia.
Half an hour from Reus airport, an hour and a half from Barcelona airport, 40 minutes by train or car from the beaches and the Roman city of Tarragona, and under two hours from Barcelona itself.
Martin & Maggie went the extra mile to make our holiday as memorable and enjoyable as possible. Their local knowledge and contacts yield a fantastic range of things to do, places to go and people to meet.
If you want to get away with the kids and be close to the water parks & beaches but not "amongst it", this could be the place for you.
They are calling this area the next Tuscany and I can see why!
Lovely, cosy little restaurant in San Blas owned by a Canadian lady serving amazingly rich and tasty dishes. I'd recommend the medallions, from what I remember you get a beautiful cheesy mash with it.
I lived in Cusco for a year and this place was always a guilty pleasure!

This is a bakery that sells cakes so delicious you will come back again and again.
We bought some fresh alfajores (2 round crumbly biscuits with a layer of dulche de leche inside and a bit of coconut flakes on the top) every day we spent in Cusco.
They also have a range of savoury and sweet tarts, hot drinks and breads. Eat in or take away.
The shop is owned by a religious order who looks after orphan girls.

On the way up to San Blas church, on the left hand side of the road. I think they are closed on Sunday.
Everyone interested in New York City, history and/or food should take Big Onion Tours' Multiethnic Eating Tour. It's a nifty way to learn about immigration and ethnic neighborhoods in New York, as it leads participants through the lower east side, Chinatown and Little Italy(which often overlap, strangely enough). You get commentary and picture-taking ops in all three areas, plus pickles, Jewish pastry, Italian cheese, dim sum and other typical offerings in each neighborhood. Guides are grad students in New York City history and culture. You can find out in advance of your visit when this and other theme tours are available at bigonion.com. The cost for the eating tour is $20, $15-17 concessions; all other tours are $15 and $12, I think. You should really take an afternoon and do this and/or others of their offerings--it's a great deal.

An ancient thatched inn that dates back, in part, to the 13th century. Great food and wonderful location on the waterfront with local beers. Just ignore the moody barmaid.

Pub just off the seafront. Excellent beer, usually busy but with a landlord that has time for anyone coming in, regardless of whether they are regulars or, like me, twice a year visitors on the way to or from the Scilly Isles.
Also worth a try, especially if arriving off the Scilly Isles ferry, is the Dolphin pub opposite the quay. A twice-a-year ritual for me and my friends that go with me to Scilly is the walk from the B&B in Alexandra Road to the Dolphin for a meal along the seafront and then to return to the Alexandra afterwards before returning to the B&B.
Can be beautiful, but can be bracing and hairy if the wind's blowing from the south and the tide's up. Watch the local kids dodging (not always successfully) the waves breaking over the seawall.

An Armenian restaurant. The name means "Come, Come". There are two such, and we ate in the ul Dobrudzha branch. Small rooms in what feels like a private house, so a delightfully intimate experience.
The food was delicious, although the service somewhat erratic. Excellent wines - we had the Tcherga white and red, both superb. No holds barred, our bill was about 60 Leva each, but one need not be so extravagant. A very good evening out, if you don't mind it being leisurely.
Booking a must - on a midweek night we couldn't get a table at the other branch, and ours was full.

Where to start? This is a little, six-table, tucked-away Italian restaurant run by patron/chef Emil, a Bulgarian who spent 17 years in Italy.
The night four of us went it was empty (Sofia natives disappear in August). No menu, we willingly went along with whatever Emil proposed. After bruschetta, wonderful antipasti, then a ravioli (home made, of course) of spinach and ricotta with a gentle creamed tomato sauce with shrimps and courgettes. Each flavour given its proper due.
Then two of us shared a salt-baked fish, two shared a fillet steak with fresh peppercorns. Although we had no room for more, Emil suggested we share a tiramisu and a torta ricotta. How can I ever eat another tiramisu, now that I know how it can be? Both desserts made for the Gods. Limoncello on the house.
Only Italian wines here, so perhaps wine is a little more expensive than elsewhere. Each dish simple, each element a perfection of taste and texture, cooked with passion. What more could one want? This was a meal I will never forget. For such a memory, we spent 60 Leva each, about €30. Booking is essential. (I know, it was empty the night we went, but that was chance!)

Perhaps one of the only restaurants of its type in Europe, this intimate little eatery serves up piping hot Japanese pancakes - imagine a big potato pie stuffed with fillings - and boasts a stunning location in the picturesque Jordaan. Mains from around 13 Euros: check out the 'dancing fish flakes' for added entertainment.
