I’ve spent early morning ‘me time’ out on the veranda. The western, lagoon facing one, if you are wondering (and if you’re not it doesn’t matter because that’s still where I’ve spent it). Obviously it’s not just been me. Absolutely (doesn’t that sound terribly, terribly English) not. I’ve been joined by Mr iPad and Mr Black Coffee ( and no, I’m not a chauvinist). Oh, and Ziggy. But only only until he’s finished eating!
And, of course, I’ve had to go out for breakfast. Why? What? You expect me to make it myself? You obviously have NOT (sorry to shout) paid attention to previous editions or you’ve never found this blog before! If the latter, why had it taken you so long. And if the former, you must start paying attention.
On Tuesday, what with Estel’s Dine By the Sea being closed, a friend and I decided to give Di V’u a try for breakfast. If you’re not familiar with its location it’s at what was formerly Wet Willy’s dock.
It benefits from a very spacious dining area.
And a large seating area that provides protection from the sun.
There are some great views
With all of this it was surprising that at 08.30 hours the restaurant was empty. We were the only people there!
So what to have?
We both ‘went’ for Huevos Rancheros with a side of bacon at BZ$28.
You’ll just have to trust me (or not), there was a side dish of bacon.
The service was exemplary ( but with only two of us in the restaurant it would have been difficult for it not to have been so) but I’m sorry to say that I’d only rate the food as OK. I’ll give it another go though because I’ve heard good reports. Next time though I’ll go for lunch or dinner.
Talking about food there’s a relatively new (around five weeks) Chinese take-away ( for non UK readers read take-out) in Boca del Rio (directly opposite Casa Pan Dulce) that’s well worth a try.
You might have to wait awhile for your order but it’s worth waiting for. And you can watch it being cooked in a well equipped and immaculately clean kitchen. Very reasonably priced too.
Also in Boca del Rio the Los Compadres bar has had an exterior facelift (no, I don’t know if the interior has had one. And even if I did I wouldn’t admit to it!).
Now Im intrigued. Are they going to employ some form of validation test? I mean, what constitutes a ‘big boy’?
