If you do not feeling like counting calories and are more in the mood for the words "battered" and "fried," then Kushinobou will make sure you are sated.

If you are looking for a restaurant to impress that special person, then this could be just the place. Not only does Itaya Kinoe serves a great array of Mediterranean food, but the decor is stunning, too. As you go down the stairs you get the impression that you are descending into the bowels of a large, wooden ship. And this is exactly how you should feel, as this restaurant has been designed to look like the interior of such a ship. The food, which is oriented toward Italy and Spain, is excellent. Try starting with an "Italian Salad," which is an amalgamation of Mediterranean vegetables in a delightful sauce. Follow this with veal cutlet Milano drenched in a wine sauce and you will not be disappointed. You will naturally want to accompany the food with wine, Italian wine, and this starts at great rates. Lunch sets are good value too. This includes a main dish, salad and coffee.

Live or over the loud speakers, Esperanza provides a warm, hearty atmosphere for you to down your tequila. Esperanza serves up great Mexican favorites, tacos, enchiladas, taquitos, and many more. Food is ordered a la carte and comes with some pretty spicy salsas on the side. Mexican beer and of course tequila is also available to make things complete.
At Bar Bar Bar you can enjoy some good live jazz and some pretty good original food. The live music features good local talent, starts at 7.30p and usually spreads out over three or four sets.

The cuisine leans toward France and Italy, but makes an effort to include all the flavors of Europe. If you are looking for something a bit original, why not try the cheese, olive and tomato fondue.
