Re: Pedro's Bar & Restaurant

I heard a rumour too! I heard Santi (who has a place in Punta Prima) was opening it is a bar. I’ve heard other rumours about Santi too but I’ve not been there for a while to check...

Re: Electricity charges

A friend of mine has a pellet burner and another advantage he has over my wood burner is that if you’re for example getting up and only going to be around indoors for half an hour, at the flick of a switch you can give the place a quick warm-up.

Re: Electricity charges

I think it’s fair to say many of us have learnt this lesson the hard way but trust me on this, you need to have a plan for heating your house in the winter. Aircon at night is for 2 or 3 summer months max. Winter heating is possibly for twice that.

Re: First Visit Planning

You could always have a butchers at ‘View members property for rent’ on this site. I think there’s even a couple in Binibeca :partyman: :oops:

Re: The mystery of Andres’ ex-El Faro) new restaurant in Binibeca Vell

Just got back from a few days on the island. Bumped into Andreas senior walking down the road and he said him and his wife are now working at Andrea junior’s place a bit. I said I thought he was now a ‘jubilado’ but he said he didn’t like it! We didn’t eat at Andreas’s this time but popped in for a ...

Re: First Visit Planning

I agree with Susie, Binibeca would be a good choice for you. Why not have a look on this site in the ‘Members villas for rent’ section? There’s 2 in Binibeca (one is mine :mad: ) I stayed at the other one years ago. They’re both nice. Other areas could be Son Bou if you were away from the busy end o...

Re: Smugglers Binibeca 2019

I walked past it last weekend and it had a new ‘for sale’ sign up so I’d guess they’re still trying to sell it maybe with more effort. It was showing no signs of opening but then it doesn’t usually for Easter. The Bini-Inn has re-opened as Bambu. It’s very smart! €16 for a bottle of red, does ‘Asian...

Re: Learning the lingo

For the reciprocal learning malarkey sticking ‘Spanish intercambio’ into a Google search should get you started. I use a site called conversation exchange. I reckon you need to have learnt the basics and be vaguely fluent a bit to get the most out of this but it’s helped me no end. I’ve got a couple...
