Eat and meet

Bajawa

There are two restaurants opposite each other beside the Edelweiss. The Camelia restaurant beside the hotel does a range of Chinese and Indonesian dishes at reasonable standards -- by all the tour agent stickers on the walls it must do a roaring trade in high season. Their pork dishes are, well, very porkish -- we had a nasi goreng babi and it tasted like the rice had been boiled in pork fat, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

Across the road is Dito's, which also does a mix of Chinese and Indonesian dishes but with a few Western standards thrown in as well. This was out preferred spot for dinner and it had a cosier, more homely atmosphere than Camelia. Go for the guacamole with krupuk – it was possibly the best dish we had on mainland Flores.

Both of these places are very popular with tourists and their drivers -- if you're looking for a more local feel, or want to get off the tourist strip, there are a bunch of Padang places near the sprawling central market.
