Congratulations to Bon Bon

Just thought I'd let everyone know that Nuno and his Chef Rui Silvestre at Bon Bon in Carvoeiro have just been awarded their first Michelin Star.

Congratulations to owner Nuno and all his staff on this great achievement.

Re: If you could choose ???

For me, it would be a few pints in the Whitelocks Arms off Briggate, wander round to Nash's Fish restaurant for the best fish and chips anywhere, sorry Libbe, and then stroll up to the Merrion Centre for a great night out at Cinderella, Rockerfella's. Damn, I just got transported back to Leeds in th...

Re: change (again) in traffic direction

It becomes two way from the entrance to Boteca going up, and two way as far as Boteca car park coming down from Monte Carvoeiro/Kiosk Azul.

Good for business me thinks. :roll:

Re: change (again) in traffic direction

One positive out of the changes is that the new Boetca restaurant will get more passing trade.

I wonder if the owner has friends in high places in the Camara.

Surely not. :roll:

Re: change (again) in traffic direction

What is more of a concern, is the amount of traffic coming down Estrada do Farol, will now be going across the road/walkway in front of Soares/Matabixo to go up the road by Sullys. Pedestrians walk aimlessly around this area or stand on it waiting for the train, oblivious to the cars that currently ...

Re: Beware GNR in village

He should have told the officer he was there to sell 'Herbs' and counterfeit handbags, perfume and sunglasses, then he would have been left alone.

Re: How fast is your broadband?

We're with PT/sapo, and over the last few weeks we have suddenly shot up from 5-6mbps to a constant 10+mbps.

We are on the edge of Carvoeiro clube in Finisteira which is at the end of the line for telephone cables before you drop off the cliffs, and we don't have fibre.

Very pleased :D

Re: MEO /PT

We had the same call, and the same outcome. We can see heavy duty cables wound around several of the telephone poles near to our house, we have had a new plastic box fitted by PT to our garden wall, so the infrastructure is ready to be finished, but PT don't seem to want to do the final work. It's s...

Unfortunately 9 seats (driver + 8 passengers) is the maximum allowed in Portugal for a rental vehicle.

Re: Property Price Woes

The enquiry boom in real estate agents always picks up from May, and continues through to October. Ironically this also coincides with the build up to the main tourism months, with thousands of holidaymakers wandering around the towns of the Algarve, and dreaming of their own place in the sun. Many ...
