Re: Mar D'Fora (ex O Boteco)

Have been there twice in the last 2 weeks and now a favourite- the view is the best and the food is good, staff efficient and owner was happy to cook us a special request not on the menu. Quite expensive but such a nice setting

Re: Pashmina indian restaraunt

As I found out yesterday having promised my family an Indian(so I could watch the golf!) the delivery driver doesn't work Sundays - pointed out it would have been helpful to say that on their menu and got a rude response so had to go to Haweli which was good as always(but missed some good golf!)

Mona Lisa

After lots of visits in the last 3 years we came to rely on Mona Lisa for a warm welcome and good pizzas/great garlic bread. Today at 6pm I rang and booked a table for 7.30 tonight and after being seated and served with our drinks we were informed that hopefully only 2 of our party of 5 wanted pizza...

Buying a Car

We have owned a place in Carvoeiro for the last 3 years and have always rented a car when we visit which has worked out well, however we are now going to be more frequent visitors and are thinking of buying a second hand car. I understand prices are much higher than the UK and I thought about bringi...

Re: Solicitador

Agree with pointersister Rui is very good and I'm sure not as expensive. All through our buying process he replied same day to any email queries from me no matter how trivial. His email address is advogadoscarvoeiro@sapo.pt

Attempted Break In

Our neighbours in Vale de Milho called today as they had heard that they were the victims of a failed break in at some time between yesterday (01/12/2013) after 11am and before lunchtime today. Their metal shutter was forced open and the patio door glass was broken but held out. A police report has ...

Re: Holiday flights rip-off

I just booked 3 return flights from LGW to FAO in August for 9 nights for £225 each with British Airways including one suitcase each which I think is a reasonably fair price....the flights are afternoon/evening ones but because we are close to Gatwick it doesn't bother us. Skyscanner is a good websi...

Re: Norwegian Air Shuttle

We used them in May and the only issue I had with them is that you couldn't check-in online so had to queue at the airport for a boarding card. Free wifi onboard was useful though

Re: Credit Card Fraud

Thanks for this...my wife recently got a call from our banks fraud dept checking if some purchases(including flights, hotel) were from her. She said they weren't and the bank didn't allow these transactions and replaced her card immediately so no harm done. She doesn't use the debit card online very...
