Joris Minne: Prezzo!
There's a lot to be said for the efficiency of European city centre mid-range restaurants geared up for feeding shoppers, office workers and museum visitors. Pick any city between Amsterdam and Albufeira and in their centres you will find clean, formica-clad, brightly lit, food businesses offering a small range of dishes of the day at reasonable prices. They generally don't have much character or charm. They are there to service, not to entertain.
Joris Minne: Swift
New restaurants should be treated with the same patience you would show a toddler taking his first steps.
