Went again, choice of the bean stew or roast pork. Had the bean stew again, with coriander rice. Good he...

Re: A blast from the past

Where do forum members usually enjoy a refreshment these days?
Me?
Depends on whether alone, with wife or friends and whether want a view or people watching!
So, ranges from Harry’s Bar, Hemingway’s, Metabixio, Earth, Atlantic View, Cafe Fino.

Re: Wedding

The Mashups as a band. They have a Facebook page that advertises where they are playing. Check them out before hiring them. They have regular gigs along Algarve.

Re: Wedding

You will be hard pressed to beat Val Doliveras as a wedding venue.Just outside Carvoeiro. Agree about Vale D'Oliveiras, is a popular venue for both locals and non-locals. Friends daughter got arried in Ferragudo. Had wanted to get married in CVO but church at top of GNR hill don't do weddings for '...

Re: Child car seats

I’ve used Algarvedriver/YOR when hiring a car. When our grand children are travelling with us I’m sure we offered the choice of a baby seat, toddler seat or booster seat. Our grand children are 2 and 6 years. When over earlier this month both seats we asked for were perfect for their ages.

Re: Restaurants on visit

Doce Mar which is next door to Jomar, is my favourite bar in Carvs. Lovely couple run it, friendly locals, Food and drinks good and not expensive. Been there! Remember couple of years ago watching Portugal v Germany in Doce Mar. Many of the locals watched the game with plates of snails as we would ...

O Albatroz

Anyone been here yet? Down near opposite side of the road from taxi rank, used to be a Chinese restaurant. Have looked at menu at entrance to restaurant but nothing struck me as different from other places I know and enjoy.

Re: Gurka/Nepal restaurant

Amazing how different peoples views of a place differ so much ! On TripAdvisor it is the number 1 Indian restaurant in Carvoeiro but we had possibly the worst Indian meal since we came here. My prawn biryani had what appeared to be deep fried small prawns in unspiced rice with a bland vegetable sau...

Re: Gurka/Nepal restaurant

It’s up the road that takes you from restaurant hill to Algar Seco, The Wolf sits on the corner!
If you get one of the Carvoeiro Freemaps, it’s number 54.
