Re: Helders - Rocha Brava

I noticed on Facebook that Helder has closed for his winter break. I am sure you will all like me want to wish him all the best and hope he enjoys a very well earned rest. We will look forward to seeing him again during the early part of next year. Of course that goes without saying , all the cycli...

Re: Thai Elephant

Seen a snapshot of the menu and it looks expensive and away from CVO so doesn't have the foot fall. Also sounds like many of the Portuguese locals aren't the type to frequent an establishment charging more than a few euros for a main. Wonder how safe your car would be if left because you had a bit ...

Heading to back to Carvoeiro in a few weeks and would like if it was open to go for a meal and a drink (the planned 'Sky bar' on the roof sounds lovely).

Re: Hop on - Hop off bus

This sounds marvellous. Having been coming to the Carvoeiro area for over 20 years and for the last 15 having our own place on Rocha Brava we have always hired a car. However just before we came out in September my eye surgeon decided to withdraw my driving licence. Whilst we managed well enough wi...

Re: Accommodation Advice

Hi Sue. We stayed at Rocha brava on our first visit and found the apartment to be a bit dated, no A/C either!!! However the complex was good so I wouldn't rule it out. Would you know of a good website I can use to check some prices out? As an aside Ian from just over the border in Northumberland or...

Re: Helders - Rocha Brava

We have been out here for two weeks now, enjoying the fantastic weather and have eaten at Helder's new restaurant 4 times. The food is excellent, good sized portions and really good value. Well worth a visit if you are in the area. Agree with you we have had some lovely meals and the restaurant sid...
