I have been to 5 of these restaurants,
My favourite without a doubt is the "golden mile" - they have the greatest seafood i've ever eaten - also a nice atmosphere.
i also recommend very much the pamyrah if your'e looking for some special local cuisine, a little different than what you know if youre a foreigner...
