Re: RASCALS

Been to Rascals couple of times (October) and enjoyed both visits. Dined on one occasion, food good, freshly made. Attentive service. Looking to hold a friend's 70th there next year.

Re: Rain

Strangely enough, had a conversation today, late afternoon, in Rosa's Bar, Sesmarias (before the T & L) about the rain being warmer here than back home!! Will fnd out the difference on Saturday when back to "auld clathes and porridge".

Re: Anyone eaten in The Olive Tree?

Dined in Olive Tree last Saturday, excellant meal. About to change their menu and are looking to offer a New Year bash! Shame that we won't be able to attend. Today the other half enjoyed a very relaxing couple of hours at the VDO spa.

Re: Bistro 72

Walked past Bistro 72 earlier today, busy and the plateful of english breakfast looked and smelt very very tempting. Those lucky to be tucking in looked very pleased with themselves! Reckon we'll give it a go.

Re: FARO AIRPORT CLOSED

Good to hear airport coping with departures. Postings on peoples' experiences are very helpful to those of us who are travelling in near future. Saturday for us, probably one of the first flights out which hopefully means few folk around airport. Keeping an eye on returning hire car to car park 4 (H...

Re: clipper ship and ferragudo

We also saw the 5 mast sailing ship, and as we stood admiring it, a 3 mast sailing ship came sailing up the estuary! Having seen the Tall Ships at Greenock several years ago, these sights brought back memories. Weather? Seas? Been going to Ferragudo for several years and haven't seen sea as high for...

Re: FARO AIRPORT CLOSED

Just back from Faro airport (well a few wines have passed really) after picking up my good lady. Things seemed a bit hectic, new arrivals are bussed from the tarmac to an area in front of the arrivals hall area but if, as today, you have several flights arriving within a short time slot, then proble...
