Traveling to another country can cost you a lot of money, especially if you aren’t careful in planning your trip. One of the more important aspects of it is where you eat. If money is no concern to you, then great but otherwise you might want to pick restaurants with affordable price while of course still offering nice and tasty delicacies.
Other consideration of yours might be the comfort and atmosphere of the restaurant so you can enjoy your food all the while being spoiled by the environment, while providing you with a nice Instagram photo for your page.
