  Bar Restaurante La Caldereta
Posted by: windermeregolfer - 17-11-2018, 10:18 PM - Forum: Bars & Restaurants - No Replies

Visited today (17/11/18) for lunch a really rural bar restaurant well worth a visit. Had the paella of the day followed by tiramisu, in my opinion great value for money.

See attached photos for menu.

  Museum in Puerto

It is a slice of Canarian history.  Lovely 19th century house, lived in for a short time by Miguel de UnaMuno - a noted author of the time. Takes less than an hour to see it all, and it is nicely furnished in the style of the period.

Posted by: Mia - 16-11-2018, 07:50 PM - Forum: Travel information - boats, buses, cars, flights & taxis - No Replies

A group of British travel agents specializing in the luxury holidays are on the island visiting a different places such as Atlantis Hotel Gran Bahía Real, Hotel Sheraton Fuerteventura, Quesos Maxorata, Verdeaurora bio farm. These agents have been invited by the Ministry of Tourism of the Embassy of Spain in the United Kingdom in collaboration with Fuerteventura Tourist Board to promote the island to their clients.

There is a little article about it in here

Perhaps we can expect an increase of the flights from the UK over the next few years.

  Christmas decorations in Atlantico already up
Posted by: Sam - 16-11-2018, 04:35 PM - Forum: General Discussions - Replies (9)

Just realised that the Christmas decorations in Atlantico are already up. They have been working on it the whole past weekend.

Talking about festive decorations, do you know when the Christmas lights are going to be switched on around the island?

This a post I put up after a visit last March others have been since and it is till just as good -

I can't see this restaurant mentioned anywhere else on here and I think it is well worth a visit. Open from 1pm to 9.45pm each day apart from Wednesday. Menus in Spanish, English & German.  There is both inside and terrace dining with fabulous views
We were a party of 4, had an excellent Tapas lunch of 8 dishes, a dessert each, a bottle of house red and house white, 1 large beer and 3 bottles of water, 108€ which I  think is good value for money.  The service was friendly and relaxed.

  Smile Terraza del Mar - Caleta de Fuste
Posted by: Sam - 15-11-2018, 01:53 PM - Forum: Bars & Restaurants - No Replies

A few years ago, we came to this Italian restaurant for the view, stayed for the food and came back for more so many times ever since. We had some really delicious pizzas here over the years. If you want to know how the real pizza tastes, you have to try this restaurant too. The only thing I don't like is that they usually do four cheese pizza without the tomato sauce although you can always ask for it as an extra. But that's just me trying to be objective and find something negative too.

They have quite good Wi-Fi, the staff is friendly and always smiling. I don't think that over the years I found anything serious to complain about in this establishment.

Have I mentioned the view?
