I am however slightly confused as to whether it’s a restaurant or a Sandwich Bar and what exactly is a gaming room are we talking pool tables and arcade games . Excuse my ignorance if I’m picking this up all wrong ?
Seems to me that its both, I'm guessing upstairs its a sandwich/snack + bar with the great terrace. Downstairs the resto. One of the rooms is a shop and another for games I suppose pool table, darts, table football.... maybe

Cant wait to spend some time at the terrace there.

UPDATE ON O FORTE at Castro Marim. It seems that since Jon bxl was there in March they have dropped the buffet. Apparently not enough business / too much wasteage. Its still called a buffet resto on the menu but it isn't. I had sardines, - five tiny ones, OH had salmon- huge portion but undercooked, friends had a mixed grill for two. Presentation excellent but food average. Massive platter of starters /olives/bread seemed impressive but add it all up and its 21 euros. Sunday lunch came to 70 odd euros plus drinks. Not to be recommended at this point. Otherwise immaculately clean and pretty inside.

Good feedback thanks. It's dropping down on the list now. The better buffet option is A Favela in Altura, a bit less personal there but unlimited meat!

Hi Jon as per my PM of 30/5 I was again in the area and went to Favela at 9:10pm last Tuesday. It was empty but we still ate, some of the food was past it's best but we still enjoyed it and it's price along with excellent service.
We wont be back for a while but hope to try Favela again but earlier in the evening.
Along with two trips to A Chamine and an enjoyable meal at O Pescador a very pleasant trip.

Hi Fred, Its always a worry for me to have buffet type meals later in the day. We are mainly lunch-type people. Hopefully that means the food is freshly prepared that morning. I also prefer to start earlier, as food kept warm for a long time in a bain marie might be a bit stewed.

I think now with hindsight (thanks) that perhaps A Favela is better (out of season) at weekends when there are more customers, a better turnover of fresher food. But as I mentioned in the first post I suggest that we pick up the non-hot items early as these can run out and not always replaced with the same.

Great that you had some good food, and of course A Chamine is a favourite of yours. You reminded me that its been ages since we went. Something we will rectify very soon!

Hi Guesswork,
Please keep us updated on this as I have family out there in a week or two and it would be good to know what they can look forward to - or not.

Just a reminder... The Ayamonte Tapas trail is on in June. With the footy dominating for me, I haven't tried any yet.

If anyone has had something memorable, please let us know

Jon

PS we also have the Cataplana month in CM, Altura etc as posted earlier...

The menu at the GC is quite limited but what there is seems very good. I had an excellent burger and the BH had chicken with pineapple both of which were very tasty and reasonable price.

Glad you enjoyed it. After being disappointed by no food available at the GC on our last trip we decided to go last night. Arrived about 9.30 to be told food finished at 9pm!!! I just don’t get it, I’m in Spain where everyone eats late but apparently not at the GC!

Credit where Due. We arrived at the golf club last night 8.15. Great service and a great burger served with a basket of tasty chips. We were also impressed with the Décor. We had the impression that the bar and restaurant has been rented out to a different team.?? over all Very pleased...

That’s fine, but my point is about the fact there is nothing at a time when many people in the area want to eat.

Maybe it is being run basically for golfers so I doubt they will still be playing at that time of night. It could also be because there are not enough people wanting to eat there (could change next month when more people are on holiday). Lastly it could be that people prefer to go into Ayamonte or elsewhere for a meal ( I know we did when we lived there). Regards Bryony

I am so occupied with the footy that I haven't had much time to try it. When I do this this will on the top of the list!
