Premier FX - MOST URGENT

Since Peter Rexstrew's death Premier FX have gone into liquidation. A friend of ours has over € 500,000 deposited with them from the sale of their house which cannot now be accessed because there is no response from Premier FX offices, or Katie and Charlie Rexstrew the directors, or from Nick Jones ...

Chocolate Mousse

We recently went to a restaurant (which shall remain un-named) and they were proudly advertising their new formula chocolate mousse called 'Novichoc'.

This shows how narrow is the gap between success and failure !! [the Russian version is spelled with a 'k']

Eating for those who hate crowds !!

For others like myself can I recommend :- Fatacil, Barca Velha, Crissy's, O Charneco, L'Orange, Villa Nova,A Rampa, Ponto de Encontro, A Paleta, and many more which have been reported on in the ...

Re: Rising prices

Well said Pato. Apart from your last post in Coffee Shop on June 3rd there has been nothing. Even worse, the last joke was from DennisG on March 28th - have we no-one on the site with a sense of humour any more ? Although the town is packed there are no restaurant reviews - do people no longer eat o...

Re: Rising prices

Well I suppose even a post with no point is better than the recent trend of no posts at all. Incidentally the post attributed to me was in fact made by Widge !! In a review last week, in the Telegraph, Portugal has dropped from the cheapest holiday resort into third behind Turkey, Bulgaria and Croat...

Re: Incoming....year 6 and counting

We live in the same area and the idea of taking your car into town is all very well but parking is almost impossible. Depending on how mobile your wife is, it may be better to do as we do - a gentle 15 - 20 minute walk into town and a 6 euro taxi ride back. The hill on the way is popularly known as ...

Re: Quiz lunch

Unfortunately, due to lack of numbers, this event has had to be cancelled. However with the number of quizzers expressing interest but unable to make this particular date, I hope to re-arrange it for a later date, probably late October. If any forumer quizzers are interested please advise me and I w...

Re: Dos Santos Craft Beer

I agree with the views of algarve123 but feel they are making a mistake by calling their food 'tapas'. They are actually further described as 'sharing plates' which creates a problem if you go alone and just want a beer (the honey flavour is particularly good !) and a snack, or if two people do not ...
