Re: Restaurants

We went to Tavira on Tuesday intending to have lunch at Las Tres Palmeras. It is always busy there so we were very surprised to find it not only closed but up for sale. We will miss going there.

Re: GOLF & FOOD

An even better (IMHO) steak on the stone, can be had at Os Arcos in Villa Real, on the sea front opposite the Naval Association. An added attraction being TV's showing the football (usually). ...

Re: Grill Tray Quest

If you are back in the UK at any time, a company called Kleenezee sells goods from a catalogue put through the door (sort of like Avon). In the past we have bought both a grill tray and adjustable...

Re: Restaurants

We went to Luis's (Restaurante Lupi in Monte Francisco) for the regular Wednesday night curry buffet last night. As usual, the food was great, but sadly we were the only people there.

Re: charity shops

There is a charity shop in town. It's a couple of doors along from Bar Cortada which is the tapas bar near the church. It's called something like Anuncias. I took some stuff in there the other day.

Re: Restaurants
