    Had a fabulous meal last night in the restaurant in the small village of Vale de Parra.

    It was a buffet with 30 starters 5 main courses and a table full of sweets. Also included were a selection of wines from the 12 wine producing regions of Portugal, all included with the meal.
    As a buffet we could choose any of the food and sample as many wines we wished to.
    Yes it was an evening to remember and the highlight of our stay here at Parque Autocaravanners Albufeira.

    Hi Mel, No we are still here, thought you would have guessed that as I started this thread on Sunday. :BigGrin:
    We will be off up through Portugal on Friday and a spot of fishin on the slow move North so it has time to warm up for us :Wink:
    The reason we are not on the picture is because Pedro couldn't do it for everyone at the same time so he has split us into 2 groups, makes his preparation easier he told me.
    When you come back you really must try the A Casa do Avo in the village the food and the whole evening was amazing.
    The French are taking over, 7 of them here now

    Pfffffffft Lynda and I wish we were still there, we are now at my sisters in the Dordogne and we have had to dig out our big jackets for the first time since September..............

    and we don't like it as it reminds us too much of Todmorden

    Keith, I looked at the thread and thought you may have been to Casa do Avo a few weeks before you left Guia .......
    To be honest the restaurant Casa do Avo would be my worst nightmare...Firstly because of the tablets I take, both my new doctor and the old says NO alcohol -0% (Diabetes) so all those wines:Doh:.......
    And of course the sweets are NO NO for the same reason...
    That's why Pedro buys me white coffees with no sugar at the BBQs...Pedro understands...:thumb::thumb:
    I would have thought it would have been the same problem for Jean :Doh: Teasing Jean with all those cakes and wines you Bu**er:RollEyes::Doh:

    Good luck with your fishing:thumb:....is Gerald and Lesley going fishing as well...

    Mel
