Re: Juicer

Thanks, logicbob. Shouldn't break the bank then and hopefully won't be going home with scurvy!

Juicer

Big fan of fresh orange juice but next rental doesn't have a juicer. Looking for basic electric model with dome squeezer which rotates when half orange is pressed on it.
Any thoughts on somewhere nearby I'd be able to pick an inexpensive one up, and what it might cost, would be appreciated.

Re: Taste

Impressed with the new venue, very nice indeed. Food and service maintained at previous high standard. A very enjoyable evening.

Re: Taste

Not that anyone is likely to be interested in my one man drama, but to be fair to Taste my booking is now confirmed. Six more sleeps!

Re: Taste

A favourite of mine and looking forward to seeing the new venue on my forthcoming visit. However, they do need to look at their online booking system. My request for a reservation from last week remains unanswered, as does a chaser on Facebook.

Ferragudo car boot

Over in a couple of weeks. Wonder if anyone happens to know if the Sunday car boot at Ferragudo is on now, or likely to be 25th March.
Many thanks.

Re: A Tasquinha Monte Carvoeiro

That makes sense. We had a similar experience to Barry's last week. Marco was not there and I did get the impression that Lagoa is the priority. A great shame as we'd enjoyed this place before. I understand they're aiming upmarket in Lagoa, which probably makes business sense given the couple of ver...

Wine tasting at Le Cro

We did this yesterday lunchtime and a very enjoyable experience it was. Our party of five adults (and a baby who was also cheerfully accommodated but stayed off the booze) tasted six Portuguese wines from three regions. The wines were a "green" wine, two further whites, a rose (sorry stumped again b...

Re: Fim de Mundo

Is it just me that finds this a puzzling concept? I just find it odd, and a bit of a waste really, to prepare meals of such quantity in anticipation that much will not be eaten. If you take a doggy bag there's some chance the food will be eaten, but to deliberately (it seems) make too much is someth...

Re: Quinta dos Vales

That sounds nice. We're booked for the tasting experience at Le Cro next week. The open day is a lot more than a chance to sample the wine, though, with a winery tour, food and craft stalls, folk dancing and singers etc. There was even a chance to try archery with both longbow and crossbow. I had th...

Re: The Roundup

Hi algarve123. Sorry to hear you've been subject to those comments. Unacceptable and certainly not generally part of the Carvoeiro experience. It does cut both ways though. From time to time over the years I've heard far from whispered comments about effing Brits and dirty Brits. I guess it just pro...

Re: Quinta dos Vales

Just been to the Tourist office and they have no information either, and also checked online as I had done. They agreed that, if it was on, it would have been publicised by now. Shame - as Smudger says, a good day out, something different.

Re: Quinta dos Valesh

Much appreciated but please don't go to any trouble.
Just wondered if anyone knew offhand. I'll
be over tomorrow and can nip in to the tourist
office.

Quinta dos Vales

Hello all,
We're over for a couple of weeks from tomorrow. Wonder if anyone knows if Quinta dos Vales is having its usual open day this October? Can't find anything on their website. It's something we've been to for the past few years and enjoyed.
Thanks.
