Re: Pani. Spectacular Views. But is that enough?

15 years now we've been returning to Carvoeiro and 10 years in Late August/early Sept. We came home on Tuesday afternoon after spending 2 weeks in CVO. Visited Pani, run by Suni, who was at Haweli Indian for a number of years. My wife and I agree with e-Richard's post. We went to Pani on our 2nd nit...

Re: best steak

I had a lovely fillet steak at Primevera in September.
We're back in early May for a 5-day break and i'm sure i'll sample the same at Primevera one evening soon.

Re: A-Fonte

Best piri-piri chicken in central CVO i reckon. We ate there on a couple of lunchtimes in September. Freshly cooked, lovely chips as well. Only downside is the wait time. When we went in Sept there were only 4 other covers and we waited almost an hour for two piri-piri chicken meals. Having said tha...

Re: Please tell me I don't have to believe this

We've experienced the fog/mist rolling in from the sea on a number of visits since coming to Carvoeiro (13 years since 2002). Last September it happened on 3 days of our 10 day stay. Usually by late morning it disappeared but one morning it rolled in and up in Monte CVO where we stay it didnt clear ...

Re: The new Casa Algarvia

My wife and I went to this restaurant last Saturday (9th). It was ok; wouldnt put anyone off going but nothing special. My wife had swordfish which came with a sauce but we couldnt really tell what the sauce was. My wife said she preferred the swordfish in Jota Lita. I had a rack of lamb on a bed of...

AliSuper Monte CVO

Coming over to CVO for a few days next Wednesday evening - anyone know if the AliSuper at Monte CVO, behind Mamma Mias is open again?
V handy last September when we were up there. I think it closed early Oct for the Winter.
Cheers.

Re: Rascals?

Dreadful experience here in September, one lunchtime off the beach. A wrap with about 3 chunks of chicken in, well overpriced. Service that was almost non-existent; no welcome. We got the impression they just think people will turn up to sit on the terrace and put up with it. Well, we've been visiti...

Re: Barking dog in the town

Experienced the usual Monte CVO dawn chorus the other week when we stayed up there.
The dogs barking seemed to be worse this year compared to other years. I guess the Portuguese dont give a flying do-da if their mutts keep barking.

Re: Restaurant review Sept 14

Smudger - i know CVO & Happys regs will know this but make sure you book in advance. Libby had to turn away walk-ins last week and ask them to book for later in the week if they still wanted to eat there. As for Tasquinha at Monte CVO the evening we were there they had 5 tables booked and in use. I ...

Re: Weather

Those weather forecasts are v unreliable. We spent 10 days in CVO; returned home early hours this morning. Had one afternoon of rain on Wednesday last week. Other days decent sunshine, although misty/low cloud came in off the sea a few mornings. According to a couple of weather sites i access regula...

Restaurant review Sept 14

Just spent 10 days in CVO - arrived back early hours this morning. well this was our 15th visit in last 12 years. So i'll start with the bad reviews: O Barco - Oh dear, what's happened to this place. Only been a lunchtime favourite of ours over the years, but once again as in our short visit in June...

Re: Worst meal in Carvoeiro?

We quite like Ele & Ela but last Sept we were at the 7.30 sitting and had a similar experience. It was 9.15 before we received our main course and by then the 9.00 sitting were arriving. We had people stood almost on top of us waiting for their table. I had planned to have a dessert but we decided t...

Re: Villa Medici

We much prefer next door, Primevera. The owner there used to run Villa Medici.
Primevera pizzas and pastas are top notch imo.
