Eating out - Restaurant Iguana, Tulcea, Romania

The food was good but a little bit too salty for our taste.

The restaurant is not in the city center, but it is worth a visit. It is a self-service restaurant, with several soups and several main courses each day. This means that the food is done on that day.

Highly recommended.
