  • Wow ! so many registered members online simultaneously.

    The Late Night Seb Show has become compulsive viewing for insomniacs. Perhaps we are all mad and Seb is the sane one ?

  • Oh Dear, this particular thread is heading steeply downhill again.

    How low can it go ?  I am sure that GiGi is standing by with mouse at the ready.

    Magpiebass,

    There was really a Mr Gray, he was the Headmaster, he was an MSc amongst others and he did look ferocious in his suit and gown. He was definitely a science man but I don't recall any odd socks peculiarity.

    You have a good day too !!

    I think Sebastian has picked a fight with alovebreed and I don't want to witness the aftermath. I am heading back under that duvet. Buenas noches amigos.   Obs

  • ON THE SUBJECT OF STANDARDS LETS HAVE A HEATED DEBATE!!

    WHICH IS THE BEST BEER IN THE AREA [NOT CHEAPEST] I LIKE A GLASS OF DORADA OR AMSTEL BUT I THINK MY VOTE WOULD HAVE TO GO TO WARSTEINER SERVED ICE COLD IN THE BAR OPPOSITE
    THE TAXI RANK IN ARENA WHO,S NAME ESCAPES ME. AS YOU WILL HAVE NOTED IM NOT GOOD WITH BAR NAMES BUT THE DORADA IN THE BAR ON THE HARBOUR WHICH IS RUN BY RAPHAEL IS A CLOSE SECOND...........WHATS THE BEER LIKE IN ANTIGUA? :-\\

  • The beer is lovely here. Carrib or Red Stripe or the local brew called Wadadli all very nice chilled and in plenty of differing establihments. The cost varies from about $5 ec to $15. Found a very nice wine store which has a wide choice of fine wines. SEB

  • I have only lived here a short while, but I do agree about certain Brits who have rude manners and the kind of English people who try to dominate L.G they are intimidating to anyone who is not part of their 'click'
    They think that to be one of the 'them' first you must play tennis, second you must get drunk, loud and offensive on cheap wine that is expensive in their country so they think they are drinking top wines, they think they are rich because they can afford to live in LG, but they still want to eat the food as described on this subject, and then they have the nerve to send it back!
    Oh and they all seem to of had at least one face lift! i am sorry but these are the sort of pople i have come across, one rude lady known as 'take the plate away ...' i won't say her name, was so rude to restaurant staff that i felt embarrased not only for her, and for the party of people she was with, but mostly for the staff on the receiving end of her horrible rude tongue, why are people who live here so rude, so clicky and do not know what good food or wine is, and are so above themselves, it really is a weird one to workout, so i am not going to try, but this is just a simple observation from a new resident trying to integrate with the community and frustrated at what i see.

  • Just looked at this thread - it's certainly opened up a can of worms.

    Although we're Tenerife junkies (6 visits in the last 10 years) I must admit that we've only stayed in Los Gig once (April 05 at Harbour Club), after 'stumbling' across it on a previous visit, when we thought what an excellent place it was.

    We stayed 2 weeks, and I'm certainly glad that we are Brits, as I wouldn't like to stay at HC if we weren't. Although the resort itself was fine and the staff were friendly, it was a little too English for us - it may suit others, but it wasn't really our cup of tea (great for the sport in the bar, but did we really want to see re-runs of Little Britain EVERY night having been out).

    I can certainly see why some people on this thread think that Brits have low standards, as I think that Los Gig could do with a few more 'upmarket' eateries. When on holiday, we do like our cooked breakfast and the occassional 'English' meal, but to be honest, we found ourselves continuously going back to the same 4 or 5 eating establishments - Sinatra's was one, the first cafe on the corner of the harbour, Krishna's and the cafe/restaurant run by the family from Leicester (for English food). The wife found that Pattiserie very nice too (too nice, fat moo - only joking!)

    I am sure that there are other nice places to eat, but we didn't find them.

    Having said that, we are looking at coming back to Tenerife in June or July and maybe doing a 2 stopper, with a week in Los Gig and a week at Golf Del Sur.

    If anyone wants to recommend somewhere for us to visit for a meal, please feel free to do so, and we will endeavour to try it out.

  • Thanks Linda

    We'll certainly give one or two of those a try (I love Canarian potatoes).

    Are there any good Italians in the vicinity and where would you recommend for a good steak?
