Le Cro

Postby pickwick » Thu Jul 09, 2015 9:04 am

Hi

There is a new Café on Estrada do Farol opposite the Wolf called Le Cro. The owners Hugo and Marina, offer something different. We tried their wine tasting and extensive tapas which were all delicious. Hugo is a winemaker and has certainly chosen a great selection from around the World. This is a Café not to be missed! Open from 9am till late so good for breakfast, take away for the beach, lunch, drinks and tapas!!

Is it next door/close to Cafe Fino! Walked out of Cafe Fino couple of days ago. Place not busy, 5 other people at most. Sat at table outside and after 15 minutes still nobody came to take my order, so left.

OK, next time I am here will again look for it. If memory right from Cafe Fino, going towards square, couple of shops (cork shop), then 3 restaurants (one a chinese) before veg garden then Brady's Bar.

Is anyone able to provide a further review of Le Cro?

I have attempted to visit twice for lunch. The first occasion was on a Wednesday in February; unfortunately it is closed on Wednesdays. I tried again on Tuesday of this week and arrived a few minutes after the advertised opening time of 12.30. The staff were arranging tables on the terrace; I asked if they were open and received an abrupt response of "not yet" together with a look suggesting that my presence was unwelcome and my question unreasonable.

Needless to say, I lunched elsewhere .....

I'm really surprised that you were met with that response. Marina & Hugo normally the friendliest & welcoming couple you could wish to meet. Their food is fresh & flavoursome so maybe worth another try.

Agree with Sue, very friendly couple, amongst the friendliest in Carvoeiro, and the food is very good.
