Re: Val de milho

Why, thankyou, kind lady! Looking forward to our return to the area. Last there 4 or 5 years ago ( must have had a good time, can't remember when! ) will no doubt see some changes, just hope not too many!

Kind regards,

David.

Major Works in Central CVO

OK, I give in!! What's going on next to the beach? The webcam is showing lots of activity, diggers and things. Someone digging for a very large dogs' bone?

What Is It About Retaurants?

Is it me? We are relatively new to CVO but each time we go, we try to visit somewhere we have not been before along with places that we liked on a previous visit. Each time we come back, it seems that this restaurant has changed hands, another is a pale shadow of its' former glory, someone is tryin...

Island Cafe

Haven't been for a while, but our visits have seen excellent ambience, tremendous food and great service. I recommended it to our daughter and her family when they were out in August. Both adults and chil...

O Boteco

As for ownership, this is part of a Group of Companies who also own an hotel in the area. If you read back through the forum, you'll see many comments on this ...

:D Shame about the bib though! Have you noticed nobody takes them off when they go to the toilet whilst in the restaurant!?!?! How many times are they worn before being washed? Went in Casa do Bife one night and watched a child throw up all over the bib, the waiter put it under the tap and gave it b...
