Re: A Tasquina...Lagoa

Went there for lunch in September Geoff and was excellent as it always was. I get the impression from Marco's wife that they are concentrating on Lagoa so maybe the end is in sight for Monte Carvoeiro!

Re: Monarch

My daughter was cabin crew for Monarch, she arrived in Manchester at 3.30am from Tel Aviv all the crew were told to go to the office on arrival. They were told there and then that they had no jobs and could attend at meeting at 8.30am at the Hilton, Manchester. Fortunately she was finishing her con...

Re: Ryanair flights Luton and Manchester

We flew out with Ryanair on Monday 25th Sept & we fortunately had no problems. My take on this is that i think Mr O'leary has ceated this problem by treating his pilots very badly hence the 140 pilots that have jumped ship & gone to Norwegian Airlines which makes me think how many other pilots have...

Re: Ryanair flights Luton and Manchester

OK - so they have made a cock-up which they own up to and have (so far) not tried to avoid the statutory compensation regulations in the 2% of affected flights. O'Leary may not be the nicest man in town but give him credit for running one of the few profitable airlines in the world and still, even ...

Re: Restaurant recommendations close to Faro Airport

Thanks for the recommendation Roy, went to the AeroMar Hotel restaurant and had a very good meal. Fairly limited menu but very good value and nice table looking back towards the airport.

Cheers for your help!

Re: Helders - Rocha Brava

I don't think the menu is the same actually, Helder is trying to make his menu choices a bit different for most of the CVO restaurants. Last week I had Pork Tenderloin with figs and it was very good.

Re: Restaurant recommendations close to Faro Airport

At Faro beach there are 2 reasonable restaurants - at a guess €5 taxi from the airport. The AeroMar hotel restaurant looking towards the airport or the Wax Restobar looking towards the sea. Both good average (nothing fancy) but very reasonable cost. Cheers Roy. I have been to Faro beach before but ...

Restaurant recommendations close to Faro Airport

We are flying into Faro next week and wont get the rental car till about 8.00pm at the earliest. Does anyone have any restaurant recommendations between the airport and the A22 perhaps in the Vale da Venda or Arneiro areas? We don't really want to venture into Faro and we think it will be a bit late...
