Re: Open restaurants?

Hi PT Buxton. Shame about the apathy on this forum. I am using Carvoeiro Village Facebook page now as very active. Carvoeiro was quite lively over New Year, maybe helped by having the fireworks. We went to Casa Algarvia, Chefs Kitchen, Earth Cafe, Cafe Fino and Villa Medici and a number of bars on N...

Open restaurants?

Coming out this Sunday until after New Year. The Weather looks great. Which restaurants in the area do people know are open at the moment?

Re: newsletter/webcam

This forum has got very quiet in contrast the Carvoeiro forum Facebook page which is much more rewarding with posts and photos daily. Much easier to interact with it too.
I asked for NYE suggestions over a week ago and when last looked had only two replies.

Re: Chef’s Kitchen

Went for second time in mid October. Busy as always and best to book. Really well designed inside and outside. Popular with families and couples. It’s pricey but the food is high quality. The tenderloin and Kofta mains were excellent as was the tempura prawn and smoked mackerel starters. The staff a...

Restaurant de Castelejo

This is a great cafe sitting above the superb Praia de Castelejo beach on the West Coast. The beach goes out for miles and popular with surfers and families. Would be dramatic on a stormy day. The cafe sits above the beach and has snacks and main meals including good fish. Enjoyed a good octopus sal...

Jazz in the Wineries

Went to a great event yesterday in Amancil. It was part of 365 Algarve’s programme. It was put on by the Joa Clara vineyard and in a small hall as they are building on their site. We were given three different wines to try with a tapas plate with each one while Beatrice and her group played good jaz...

Praia de Odeceixe

Not used to the local beaches being so busy, went up the West Coast on traffic free roads and discovered this lovely family friendly beach between two cliffs, 15 minutes north of Aljezur. It is very flat and goes out for a long way at low tide. Bordered by a river that goes up to the pretty village ...

Re: Silves Mediaeval Fair

Thanks for the recommendation. Will go this weekend. It’s a busy week with the Portimao Sardine Festival and the Olhao sea festival so should be fun.

Silves Mediaeval Fair

We are in the area for the first time when this takes place in August. What is it like and what is worth doing like seeing the jousting?

Vintage Wine Bar

Enjoyed first visit and we tried a number of local wines which were very good. 5 Euros a glass but big sizes. Had good tapas board. Manager very friendly and talked through the wines with enthusiasm. Pleasant room. It’s just across from the taxi rank in Carvoeiro. Good to have another real wine bar ...

Helders

Saw that Helders has reopened today after an extended holiday which will be good news for its many fans. Shame it was our last day! Made up by being able to be on the beach in shorts in January.
