This is our very favourite restaurant and we use it a lot while we are out.

Great food, lovely atmosphere, Marlen the owner/chef is amazing and the food as well as being delish is also healthy, no frozen rubbish there!! Amazing quality and beautifully cooked.

Hope you find it Tricky :)

Also we were told by one of the car reps that if a car is there for more than an hour the company will be fined. I just think this is going to end up with...

Re: Ellie

Very sad. I'll arrange for funeral flowers from the forum. Steen, can I just mention that I know from her Son that it is to be a natural burial (she will be buried next to Hub) in a natural burial ground so any flowers and wrappings etc have to be biodegradable. If anyone is in that area I know her...

Re: Ellie

She ruffled feathers and caused huge posts which were great fun. I also met up with her a couple of times, dining at Columbo's which was her favourite haunt. That was before she became poorly.

RIP Ellie

Re: Chrissys - Lagoa

:) We have always had a good meal at Chrissys before these guys had it and since they took over. They were extremely helpful when we needed them to accommodate a dairy and gluten free member of our family, they did it with wonderful results.
