FRIDAY 11TH OCTOBER 2013 – The Restaurant Critic

Visiting us throughout the day and every day on the balcony is a pair of sandy-coloured doves with neat little indigo chokers.

Today we raised the bar on holiday idleness; Friday feelings and all. Hauled our afternoon bones up to Portissol via the big steps (which remind us of the ones at Whitby) and took a drink at the Bar d’Ô (see what they did there?)

Enough of my searingly insightful restaurant criticism, here’s a picture of my scran.
