Fodor's Expert Review House of Spices
As usual, you'll have to climb a few steep flights of stairs before arriving at this breezy, open-air terrace restaurant, but the effort is worth it. The décor is simple yet stylish, with walls painted in relaxing shades of blue and green, colorful woven place mats, dark wooden tables and chairs, and friendly waiters in blue shirts and prayer hats. If you're craving Western food, the pizzas and homemade pastas are good, and there are plenty of red meat options; otherwise there are enticing seafood dishes such as crab claws, prawns, calamari, and grilled fish with a choice of interesting sauces. At the back of the house is a traditional tea room which is a great, initmate escape from shopping in the streets.
