Re: Covid 19 Isolation

I had a flight booked for the 31st march with Ryanair which was cancelled 10 days ago. I opted for a refund that when I eventually got on to the website is promised in six weeks! They want to keep your money as long as possible

I feel the same. I should've been
: travelling to CVO tomorrow. Just wish I'd got over there before the start of the pandemic. I'd rather be in lockdown in my garden in Carvoeiro than here in the UK :cry:

Re: Chef’s Kitchen

We went in August, service was very slow and the menu wasn't very interesting. As they had only recently opened I hope it was just teething troubles. Its a nice restaurant so hope it does well and will definitely try it again.

Re: A blast from the past

I too had a badge (till it fell off) and had great fun spotting other wearers and working out who they were.
Made lots of friends that way

Re: Restaurant Bookings & Uber

The owner Anibal will pull out all the stops if it’s a birthday party and is a dab hand with kids balloons. I’d then end up at monte carvoeiro ( halfw...

Re: Restaurant Bookings & Uber

I wouldn’t chose villa Medici for children. It used to be kid friendly but last year it dropped its kids menu and you have to pay for an adult meal. Also there are a few lambrettas around which are very tempting for children to climb on. Nice restaurant but wouldn’t be my choice for children anymore
