Thanks to so many positive comments here, I'm going to try dining sit-down on my next solo trip. I tried it on one trip and really felt uncomfortable. What I'd be interested in is where have other solos eaten and had a really good experience (nice CMs, comfortable suroundings). Right now I'm considering LTT in MK, Bomas at AKL,or Resturaunt Akerhaus (?) in Norway, but I really don't know. I'd appreciate any suggestions-I'm ready to try again!
