We were collected at Faro Airport by J&L and within 2 hours we’d got to their villa at the Quinta de Suadade and sat at one of there long term favourites eating an annual traditional lunch of Prawn piri piri at the Palladium(Guia). The Restaurant owner Diogo hasn’t changed in years nor has this tasty dish, great to start to our gastronomic extravaganza.
Pool, sunbathing, books and kip.
Dinner was at Il Marinero another usual haunt and excellent fresh fish and lamb kebab with a good local Vinho Verde.
Tuesday 8th July. Chilling morning sleeping and reading. Lunch was Chicken piri piri with chips and tomato salad washed down with Sagres beers were just the business(O Teodossio, Guia)!
Shopping, swimming, sunbathing, books followed by a siesta…………..hard work.
Dinner was in the beautiful Marina Town of Villamoura at Pier 1. Fantastic view, chefs treat of lamb somosa’s were exquisite but G still raves about his starter mixed green salad. Mains included, steak and fish all were spot on. An excellent Portuguese Sparkling wine was a great aperitif and a great value Alentejo accompanied the meals. This is definite recommend a special place.
Ps J&L will no doubt add some more detail and maybe the tinned carrots.
