Café Ekberg
Price: under €25
For a light snack and buffet lunches, Café Ekberg is a perfect venue in which to enjoy good quality at a very reasonable price.

Salads, bruschetta and soups are the order of the day at lunchtimes, while in the afternoons the on-site patisserie takes over.

The café dates from the mid 1850s and is open daily, early morning until early evening.

Price: under €25
This popular budget restaurant offers 15 different types of pasta dishes and the options are quite imaginative, such as fettuccine in a white wine sauce with grilled salmon strips, garnished with salmon caviar and saffron.

The unfussy, unpretentious surroundings are bright and airy and are also home to an all-you-can-eat daily buffet. As well as being excellent value for money, Pasta Basta is family friendly and has over 150 seats.
