Advantages: lots of chocolate goodies
Disadvantages: messy, not comfortable, nothing spectacular

The other day, while I was walking through miserable and grey London, I was suddenly overcome by an unexplicable chocolate craving. I also wanted somewhere to sit down and read a book - so when I put these two desires together, it suddenly came to me. The ...

Diamond review  Delicious Self-Indulgence

Advantages: Totally Self-Indulgent and Delicious Experience!
Disadvantages: Do I really have to list what the "disadvantages" are? I mean, this is a totally self-indulgent experience and everything is so delicious!

Diamond review  ˇBuen provecho!

Advantages: Loads of choice - good sized portions - lively atmosphere
Disadvantages: Food can be over-processed and bland - bit noisy for couples
