Hi mobunny, yes that was me who planned dinner at Portofino. It was to be last Monday Mar 1st, but Monday morning we awoke to winds that at times seemed in the gale force category. All day I was hoping that the winds would die. They didn't & only got worse & went all the way through Friday.Almost all snorkle trips & dives were canx all week.We were going to take a boat at 6:00 from Fidos & I waited until 5:45 then told Rose about it.She thought the idea was awesome but we both agreed it would be the ride from hell.
We stayed in town at Aqua Marina Suites & I was so glad we didn't stay at a place way up north.It would have been rought trying to go to town at night with those winds.But by all means try to do that in August if you can,people told me it would have been a wonderful time.Insted we went to Elvi's.It was a good meal but we felt kind of rushed a bit as people kept showing up & I think it is kind of a tourist factory.There was a manager who walked around the whole time watching every table & if there was a slight lull,she was at the waiters kind of pushing them.The wait staff gave me the impression of being on edge.
Our favorite in town was Cocina Caramba.Great blackened Snapper.
This message board is great.So many things that people related all came true when we went.Thanks for your input also.
It is very difficult being back to work here in Boston.It has snowed both days since We've been back & cold & cloudy.Talk about a big let down.I,m all tanned up & nowhere to go!!!!! Ugh..
