Local dining near The Flying Pig Beach Hostel

Local dining

Yan Thai is the one to go for if I fancy eating out or getting a takeway. They’ve got a separate menu for takeaway where you can get 2 meat dishes, a vegetable dish and rice for only €10, definitely worth a try!
Archie – For me, fast and fresh is a great place for a reasonably priced tex mex meal. Grab a takeaway burrito and eat on the beach, or eat in for a quick lunch. Their Jarritos Guava soda is amazing and you have to try the loaded fries!
Kim – I like to go with a group of people to La Cubanita. It’s a funky, Cuban style all you can eat tapas restaurant with over 50 different tapas choices. They’ve also got cocktails for just €5, that’s backpacker prices for sure!
Fanni – I love Indian food and Sunand is an amazing Anglo Indian restaurant just a couple of minutes’ walk from the hostel. They’ve got so many different options and loads of vegetarian choices too. It’s not the cheapest place in town, but it’s definitely worth the money!
