Ken y tina, you're absolutely correct. My apologies. I guess that on the four occassions we persevered going to El limonera/ Lolita I was disappointed. But , I agree we are all entitled to our personal opinions. Best regards. Keith

Good to see Sergio has returned to his old place opposite El Choco. Opened yesterday, we wish him all the best.

We stopped by the restaurant
Convivio Dos Cavaleiros.

On the N2 heading to Faro airport, just after the Auction house, passed it lots of times as many have, and it always has lots of cars parked outside along the roadside.

We got there 12am as it opened, already 9 tables occupied, no menu:
Red/white wine
Sangria
Water/juice to drink

Lamb
Mixed fish
Mixed meat
All come with salad potatoes, with the usual bread olives butter and fish paste on the table.

We were asked twice if we wanted more food!!, then pudding time, 3 choices, coffee to finish off.

To say it was busy is an understatement, it was full by 12.50, must have at least 50 covers.

All family run, great service lovely food, we had the Roasted Lamb, we had a flight to catch so didn’t really get the best from our visit but will be going back, 3 of us €25?, seems too cheap but that’s what we paid.

Ken.

During the last weeks, we have been to the Ribera, next to Vintage, by the taxi rank.
Great place.
Excellent food. Excellent service:very friendly, professional and English speaking. The prices are very reasonable.
Highly recommended!...

Ah yes, I was sat outside the vintage back in October with my usual goldfish bowl of G & T as I watched the member of staff of the Ribera carving jamon outside non-stop. I will give it a go when we are back in February - my question is - What's it like inside ??? I seem to recall they did a load of building work on the premises last year. plus what's the winter menu consist of?

Inside it is nice, very Andalusian. I do not know if they changed something or kept it as before.
The menu is wide with pork, chicken, beef, fish, salads, tortillas, etc... Very large choice!
My preferred dish: carrillera a la naranja (pork cheak with orange sauce).
Regards. JM.

Hi

Whilst driving around we saw new signs for a new resto in VRSA. Well we haven't see the signs before.

I drove past it to check it out, looks like a snack bar. And I didn't see the Revolution sign on the door either. But I was curious as I saw 2 signs - one in English saying 'the best meat in the world!' Gotta check that baby out

As we just arrived its not for us (at the moment) .... but.... it seems to make wonderful burgers - chicken salads (as per photos) etc. I only use FB for menus, but there they have 3 great reviews... but they could be from friends.

It seems to me to be a new resto - with a potential. After a few weeks of local food we often hanker for a (e.g) Sunday lunch, curry, brekkie or burger. So will check it out later.

If anyone goes as a result of this - please let us know your thoughts

restaurante revolution - Restaurante em Vila Real de Santo António

As you come into VRSA after crossing the railway line, head towards the LIDL roundabout. About 20m before the roundabout, the last road before, turn right. Its the snack bar looking place (about 20-30m more) on the left - on the corner of the first road left.

Also from Pingo Doce, its the last road on the left before the roundabout. Then first right - first left - at the end

Have you been for the lunches at the Catering College in VRSA. This is fine dining. It was €15 but I think it may have gone up to €17. 4 courses coffee and wine included. You have to book. I think there could be one next Wednesday.

Thanks Olivia good idea, I didn't know this.

Do you have any contact info / webpage, please?

I googled and got the tourism school, that also does training for hotel positions... Perhaps that includes catering.

Thanks again

I went with a friend and I think you have the right place it is right at the top end of the main Street walking away from the marina. It is a large building on your right painted blue and white from recollection. Besides the fabulous food it is interesting to see the students in training. I think you can book in the office at the entrance which is always open. I have sent an email to my friend for contact details and will forward when I have a reply.
