A relaxed and informal French restaurant that serves traditional fare. Oysters from Cancale, creme brulee, pate, steak, duck and great gratin dauphinois were some of the very reasonably priced dishes enjoyed. It has a huge wine list and staff bring you menus chalked up on blackboards. Booking is recommended as it gets very busy. Good for dinner or lunch.

Great French restaurant serving tasty steaks, matchstick frites and a huge selection of wines. Atmospheric lighting, vintage cigarette posters, good service and really low prices given the quality of the food. Stays open late too.

Simply the place to get the most fantastic fresh fish and seafood, Malliag is a proper fishing port rather than a tourist destination. Most people arrive there and stay only briefly on their way to Skye, Rhum or Knoydart but the excellence of the food, served in a harbourside setting, is such that it is worth organising an overnight stop on your way to these places. The service is helpful, friendly and unpretentious and the helpings more than generous.
Right on the harbour near the ferry terminal.
It's a favourite haunt. It does a really nice buffet with a good variety. Plenty of nice vegetables. Polite and pleasant staff. The 'meat' dishes look and taste authentic. We took some devoted-meat-eating friends there a few months back and bundled them in without their seeing the word 'vegan' on the outside. They didn't believe us when we confessed they'd just heartily enjoyed a vegan meal!! Great! A recommended evening would be to go there for the main and then over Soho Square to Soho Street and Govinda's for desert (very yummy!), though the latter closes at 8pm.

I did the Great Glen Way (a five-day walk) a couple of years ago and had a memorable meal at a place we discovered on the way. Basically, it's a barge moored at Laggan Locks, the end of day two of the walk. Having been told about it the previous night in Gairlochy we called to book, told the bloke what food we liked and arrived to the most ridiculous oversized feast of local seafood and other nice stuff, all for a pitifully small sum. The whole experience was totally, if pleasingly, bonkers – a man, his dog, only two customers, a barge full of odd historical memorabilia and a lot of good food.
The walk, by the way, was pretty good but frustratingly, a lot of the walking route followed the same path as the cycle route and I felt that we wouldn't have lost much, and would have got to Inverness a lot quicker, if we'd been on bikes.

Mandraki is a must. The old town has its own charm but Mandraki represents the cosmopolitan Rhodes. There you will find everything. The Italian Art Deco buildings, the Agora with many shops and restaurants. Just at the entrance of the market there are kiosks with foreign books and newspapers.
On the promenade, visit the Zaharoplasteion Dimitriadis, one of the oldest pastry shops. Enjoy the view of the windmills and the two pillars with the deer at the port entrance.
Just behind the Taxi terminal inside the arcade there are some good old restaurants with very cheap prices.
Tante Zoe's is a cajun/creole New Orleans restaurant. It was recommended to us by a taxi driver. We had a really nice evening and the service was fantastic. The steak was lovely!
The menu is available on the website.
1 Crow Street,Dublin 2. Just off Dame Street, opposite Dublin Castle.
HUB is an English speaking restaurant and bar serving some of the best Italian food and wine (like the local Montepulciano) at very affordable prices.
It is on the first two floors of a striking modern building. Its beautiful outside terrazza is furnished with cosy white sofas and chairs and the view from there is pretty amazing. At aperitivo time, around 7pm, people like chilling there with some of the best cocktails ever. Great music all day long.
HUB is also 10 minutes away from the beach and only a 30 minute drive from the mountains and national parks. Children and families welcome.
HUB is in Pescara near the new Tribunal. Telephone 085 4554999 www.hub.pe.it
Once you brave the dodgy alleyway this restaurant is a great find. It has a nice local atmosphere and is very good value (especially for Copenhagen). It was about £16 for the fish fondue which was plentiful and of a very high quality. There was a great salad bar to go with it too.

The best Italian restaurant in the town. Way better than the more established Nick's Italian Kitchen attached to Kungas Guesthouse. The only problem is that this place doesn't benefit from the panoramic views of the former, but the food more than compensates. Run by a friendly Tibetan - try the chilli chicken pasta, it is awesome!
Joglbara Road, towards the main square if walking from Post Office on the right hand side.
High class French food near Harvard Square. A great place for a special meal that doesn't have to be expensive. The three-course prix fix neighbourhood menu is one of the best deals in Boston.

Le Reconfort is a lovely little restaurant in the Marais district. Food is absolutely delicious and the waiters (who I suspect are also the owners) are really great. The menu is in an old French novel which really adds to its bohemian vibe!
37 Rue De Poitou
Vegetarian restaurant near Museumplein, but a world away from the crowds. It serves cuisine themed from different parts of the world, which apparently changes every couple of weeks.
We had a lovely meal sat outside in the tree-lined street. Inside, the decor was fairly modern. Service was friendly and efficient.
My partner and I had a main, desert and wine for €60 and would definitely go again.
Only open between 17.00 and 21.30 and closed on Mondays. It's probably worth booking.
